Turn signals and parking lights stopped working

Post by daddy1leon »



As I was trying to install some additional lights, my turn signals and parking lights quit working all together, I checked the fuse and the relay, and they look fine, what else could it be? any ideas will be appreciated.

Are the hazards dead too? Are the tail lights still working? How about the radio? Dead too?
What are the lights you are hooking up and where were you tapping into the bike’s wiring?

Likely a ground somewhere got pulled out.

Thanks for your quick response, the radio works, the horn works, all the other lights work fine, only my turn signals and emergency lights quit working, I already replaced the fuse, and the relay, but both of them were fine. I checked all the wires and cables but they all look good. I was trying to install a rear end bumper LED light under the license plate, and I was going to top into the connector that goes to the brake and signal lights.

Ok, so the position lights in the mirrors that are on all the time are working? The hazard lights and the turn signals both use the same flasher relay and it’s powered from the Accessory relay and fuse.

Yes, the position lights at the mirrors are working fine, it is the Hazard and turn signals that are not working. I checked all the relays and fuses and they are fine, where is the flasher relay located?

Under the seat in the relay bank. The cover should have a diagram that shows its location.
