Fairing Side Marker Lights...

Postby DC46 » Tue Aug 13, 2013 4:48 pm



1984 Aspencade...Does anyone have a clue why my fairing side marker lights dont work, every other light works, just replaced bulbs and nothing...Im sure they didnt just fuse those two lights alone...

I am not sure the 84 Aspencade has Fairing Side Marker lights.
I have an 84 Interstate and those are just reflectors for me.

Also looked in the manual at 1984 Interstate and do not see a set of lights listed for those or wiring for them.
Yours might be aftermarket if you actually see bulbs in them.

Anyway, I am sure someone more knowledgeable in this area will respond.

Just so we are clear on this.

When you say Fairing Side Marker Lights are you referring to the little Amber colored 1.5 x 3 inch item on each side of the fairing, the Amber ones pointing forward or the Clear ones that are next to the headlight at the front?

I only ask because others may have differing terms for the lights you mean.

Thanks

The fairing ambers are just reflectors. If you have other, they are add ons and may not be connected to anything.

open both fairing pockets and remove them . then check the wire connections. most times they pull out if not tight. also make sure the socket is soldered and cleaned properly. i found that one of mine wasnt seating right where the bulb is placed.
