Still fighting electrical problem, hazard lights not blinking just glowing all the time? I have checked all grounds, all clean and tight.
Found out I had a bad hazard switch, tried cleaning and lubing, no luck !! Decided to change both handle bar switches,(not a job for the
rookie!) So after all this work problem is still present, but now it's different, I turn the key to ACC push the hazard switch and my trunk starts to
BUZZ that's right BUZZ !!! Can somebody HELP ME

The 4 way flasher is under the trunk and is what would be buzzing. Any additional wiring/electrical devices/LED's/modifications to bike?
This is what I do

Hello, I have a aftermarket fuse block that fits on the battery hold down. I have it disconnected while I am trouble shooting this issue.

Keep in mind the flasher could be defective.

Yes, and you can also adapt a more modern electronic relay if you wish (it won't plug in directly, but you can make it work).
