Question about 1992 Yamaha XJ 600 Diversion S
I blew the fuse to the head lights the other day. fixed fuse then left turn signals would not light up. Left turn signal bulb was blown. replaced bulb and now left turn signals works, but now right side will not blink. think it might be the right turn signal relay but can't find it, also just started the bike it runs in neutral but when put into gear bike will not run?
Hi, Jamiepbock before testing any electrical component in the Light Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries, also before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced your OEM lights with one or all LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer.
If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion.
If all four turn signals flash at the same time like hazard lights even though you only pressed one turn signal button then you have a LED light in the circuit and need a load equalizer that can be purchased from any motorcycle parts supplier.
If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function.
If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction.
If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire.
If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector.
If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

SOURCE: Horn and Highbeams not working
Have you taken a look at the switch? I'm a Harley Guy, the Horn and High beam switch are located on the same bank so a clean with a bit 'O' WD might do the trick?? did for me.

Does the brake light work with the front brake lever. Sounds like wrong type of bulbs in there or bad turn signal flasher...Do the lights light up when you hit the switch and just stay lit...Also i can tell you that mine had to have the bike running in order to create enough amps to even make the flasher trip. I eventually put bigger bulds in each turn signal to draw more so they work with it running or not. It had 2156 bulbs in and i put 2157. Oh the flasher unit is under the fuel tank.

Though I can't recall what the wire colors are for your bike's turn signals, here's how to figure it out: on the turn signals that you bought, first determine which wire is the ground by removing the light bulb and then checking to see which wire has continuity to the turn signal's metal bulb socket base.
Then find out which wire is the running light and which is the turn signal by hooking the ground wire and one of the other wires to a 12 volt power source. Which ever wire makes the brighter part of the bulb light up is the turn signal - the dimmer one is for the running light.
On the bike, match the turn signal wire to the bike's wiring that is 'hot' with the turn signal switch on. Plug the running light wire from the turn signal into the bike's wiring that is 'hot' whever the key is on. Hook the turn signal ground wire to the bike's ground wire(s).

Testimonial: "Thanks so much. Your advice about checking which wires are "hot" with key on or signal on makes perfect sense."

my friend you have a short in your wiring harness. The best way to do a mini check is take your fairings off and start jiggling wires. Usually, if there is a short the lights and/or blinkers will blink.....otherwise your bulbs could be blown. If the harness is shorted go to your dealer or someone capable of fixing the problem( you probably can do it) hope this helps you...good luck!!
