Right signal light inop, no right dash light either

Post by ConfusedHarleyGuy »



Soo i got a little teaser for you guys here at this wonderful forum. 2006 GL1800, right side turn signal and dash indiacator do not work. You can hear the flasher clicking and the rear one blinks fast like it is a burnt out bulb in the front. I swap the working and non working bulbs and they both work on the left side. Three of the hazards work, front left and both rears. Im at a loss.. i cannot find any wire breaks, or broken components. Replaced the whole switch housing, no avail.

If anyone has any insight or has heard of this before, please help.

Thank you from one confused harley guy.

Does the right side dash indicator work with the hazards or is it out with both turns and hazards?

The dash indicator doesnt come on with either the hazards or turn.

Ok, You need to pull the left side fairing pocket out and check for corrosion on the light blue wire passing through pin #3 at C2 in the white frame. C2 is the gray 22 pin connector at the rear of the frame. The front turn signal and dash indicator are connected to the rest of the system through this connector.

Did that correct the problem?
It ain't the destination but the getting there. You are not lost until you run out of gas.

Yes! I literally just got done with it about 15m ago and was going to post a thank you tonight and i got notified you posted again. Thank you so much, that paragraph you typed saved me another couple nights of testing wires and tracing them.
