replacing turn signal bulb in mirror on 2006 goldwing

Postby striper » Fri May 11, 2012 11:00 am



RECENTLY TRADED TO A 2006 GOLDWING, LOVE IT, NOTICED THOUGH THAT MY LEFT TURN SIGNAL BULB MAY NEED REPLACING, THE LIGHT GOES OFF WHEN I TURN ON THE LEFT SIGNAL, THE INDICATOR ON THE DASH, BLINKS AS WELL AS THE REAR TURN LIGHT. I HAVEN'T PURCHASED A REPAIR MANUAL YET, AND I AM UNSURE JUST HOW TO REPLACE THE BULB, ANY ADVICE???

Sounds like you may have a filament burnt out.
The turn signal bulb is accessed from behind the mirror glass. Locate the screw on the bottom of the mirror housing and remove. Be careful to hold onto the mirror glass because removing that screw will allow the mirror glass to come out. The light bulb connector it easily accessible.

Thanks, I hadn't thought to look on the bottom of the mirror, I will give it a shot.

OK, I REPLACED THE BULB WITH THE OEM BULB, STILL DOES NOT BLINK, WHEN I SWITCH ON THE LEFT TURN INDICATOR, THE DRIVING LIGHT GOES OUT ON THE MIRROR, DOES NOT BLINK, THE INDICATOR ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL BLINKS AS WELL AS THE REAR LEFT TURN LIGHTS. SAME DEAL WHEN I SWITCH ON THE HAZARD LIGHTS, LEFT FRONT DOES NOT BLINK, ALL THE OTHERS DO............CHANGED TO ANOTHER NEW BULB, STILL DOES THE SAME THING. WHATS UP???????????????ANY CLUES.?????????????????????

Sounds like a bad socket or bad connection. If I remember correctly when I installed my Muth mirrors, there is a connector just below the mirrors that may be the culprit. Make sure it is a) clean and b) plugged in all the way. You can pull out the rubber to dig around for the harness connector. Also look at the inside of the bulb socket to see if you see anything amiss.
