Not necessarily a bare wire. Could just be a slight broken spot in the insulation. Check the wiring inside the rear fender. Sometimes the tire gets into the wiring harness and chews things up a bit. This usually happens on lowered bikes.

SOURCE: no tail light, brake light, or marker lights but

Start off by checking all your bulbs and fuses, sometimes one burned out bulb will affect other lighting systems. Next thing I'd do is look for a bare wire (short) somewhere in the system.

SOURCE: tail light and front and rear fender marker lights don't work.

under the side panel on the left side as you sit on the bike if you have a fairing from the factory there can be an extra fuse box there

SOURCE: when i turn my 1997

According to the schematic I'm looking at, your 1997 model Sporty came with front marker lights but not rear marker lights. To make sure, take the lens off of your turn signal light in the rear. Take the bulb out. Now, does the bulb have one or two filaments? If it only has one, then you don't have marker lights.

Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: keep blowing fuse on fender

You will boil your battery with 18 Volts on it but that won't blow your fuse. I would look for chafed wires or the light socket itself.

2007 HARLEY SOFT TAIL DELUX I AM BLOWING THE FUSE FOR THE TURN SIGNALS AND TAIL LIGHTS


Hi Michael, If you did any with wiring just before all this started go back to that first and check with a test lite for a grounded power wire that is bare, broke or pinched. If not check underneath the fender or remove the fender to see if rear wheel has rubbed any wires there. You can isolate sections by disconecting the electrical plugs in the turn signal and tailite circuit. Good luck

Fuse keeps blowing


sounds like you have a short in the wiring

are all the signal light bulbs good? if one is out this will cause the blinker to run fast also maybe a bad blinker can

the head light and tail light are on the same fuse check under your rear fender and seat for a naked wire somtimes the tire wares on the wires if they run under the fender also check all running light wires (ie front fender light I had this problem with a FXR and it was the wire under the front fender to my fender light

2002 dodge ram 1500 brake and parking lots went out


Both. If the running lights ( marker, tail, clearence, or parking) and brake lights are out since the rain, a tail light assembly is broken and filling with water enough to create a short to ground. If there's no broken lens, whitch normally only blows the bulb. Then, the problem lyes in the trailer light harness. the brown wire (tail) & green wire (left turn/brake or yellow wire (right turn/brake) must be bare exsposed that shorts to ground when wet. all the trailer wires could be smashed together damaged the plastic coating on them. no problem till water shorts to ground. The white wire is the ground wire make its not able to touch the other 3 wires or bare & wet. Tape wires seperate then replace tail/mkr fuse and brake fuse. That should do it.

Subaru outback wagon tail light not working off


There are several components of your 1997 Subaru Outback that can cause your tail lights to stop functioning correctly. To help pinpoint the cause of the problem, it would be very helpful to also check your front marker lights. If the marker lights are working, then we know that the problem is not the headlamp switch or the tail and illumination relay (located in the fuse and relay box).

The components to check are:

> Fuse #23 (20 Amp) in the Main Fuse Box.
> Fuse #5 (10 Amp) in the Fuse and Relay Box
> Tail And Illumination Relay
> Headlamp Switch

The signals won't work on my 02 honda cbr 954 rr.


Hi, Imcook2 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 you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn 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 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.

THE TAIL/MARKER LIGHTS, GO FROM THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH TO THE REAR FOR THE TAIL LIGHTS & TO THE FRONT FOR PARKING OR RUNNING LIGHTS. ALL THOSE LIGHTS ARE ON THE SAME CIRCUIT, { BROWN WIRE } THE BRAKE & TURN SIGNAL WIRES GO FROM THE STOP LIGHT SWITCH & FROM THE TURN SIGNAL/HAZARD SWITCH. NO RELAY IN THE TAIL/PARK CIRCUIT. CHECK THE FUSES WITH A GOOD FUSE TESTER.

FZR 400R Deltabox Exup. wont idle properly Howzit everyone. I have a "small" issue with my FZR 400R Deltabox Exup. So it doesn't want to idle properly(the moment I reduce the idle speed to any point below 3000rpm it continues to drop and dies) and also revving the bike it bogs around 6000rpm doesn't go any higher. When restricting the airflow through the airbox it revs better(all the way to 14k rpm) but still doesn't want to idle as the revs then hang on it's way down. I suspected this was all caused by an air leak somewhere, sprayed some quick start on the boots between the carbs and the intake as well as between the airbox and the carbs with no jump in the revs. Nevertheless I sealed the boots just to make sure they aren't the problem. I then stripped the carb and cleaned it properly, put everything back together, sorted out their syncing and reset the mixture screws to 3.5 turns out(which sounds a bit far out, but thats what the manual said-since then I've tried everything from 0.5 to 4 turns out with no significant effect). Then the cylinder started acting up(not firings- a different cylinder about every third time the bike was started) I then replaced the spark plugs with new ones(NGK cr9ek as per the manual) after that cylinder 1,2 and 3 was firing, but 4 was still dead. I Replaced the coil, leads and caps, still not firing. I checked the compression, which was fine, I checked the valve clearance (cylinder 4 the one intake valve was way out of spec, so i replaced the shim), still not firing. I've got no idea what else could be the problem or what to check next. PS. When i pulled the spark plugs(both new and old) they where burnt black so I'm not sure if my jetting could be out of spec perhaps?
