Look in the tail light base assy. to make sure you didn't bend or break a pin off. When you installed the LED there should have been a blue wire with socket pin you had to put in the correct position. During the installation it is possible the base pin got damaged.

Rewired tail light with new LED's. Brake lights come on without depressing peddle or hand brake


Sounds like to me that you don't have something wired correctly. Take the wires for the brake light loose and check for voltage. You should have no voltage on this wire unless one of the brake switches has been made or you have a short circuit. I'm assuming the brake light worked correctly before installing the new tail light assembly.

Good Luck

Harley sportster 883 2005. Both the tail light and break light filiment stay on with no difference when brake is applied.


Not sure I understand your question.The tail light filiment goes on with lights and brake light filiment goes on when brake is applied.The extra filiment makes the tail light go brighter.If both filiments are on when lights go on then applying the brake won't change the intensity.You might have bad brake light switch causeing brake light to stay on.Have to do some checking to see if it's front or rear switch.

I have a 2010 Road King Classic. I want to add and Axitech 4S Led Light to the brake light. I need a wiring schematic to Identify which wires to connect to.


Typically Harley uses a red and a green wire on their tail light assemblies. The red wire is usually the brake light, green being the tail light.

Using a test light, turn the switch on, push the probe into the red wire, and step on the rear brake pedal. If the test light illuminates when you step on the brake pedal, you've got the right wire for the brake light. The green wire should be "hot" whenever the ignition switch is "on" and the headlight is on.

82 harley sportster brake light


try starting with the bulb. brake light bulbs are dual fillament, meaning you have 2 bulbs in one basicly. if your brake side has blown then the tail light could still work. Or try checking the brake light switches, one on front brake and one on rear brake pedal. to test switches disconect wires and join them together with small bit of wire or paper clip. this will make the light come on meaning you have a bum switch.
if you have only been using the rear brake, that has an adjustable switch, may need to mess with it

Installed new led taillight and now there is no brake light/blowi


I fixed it. The LED light needs a "load equalizer" to operate properly. Instructions said nothing of needing one. I combed the internet and found the answer. I responded to FixYa by e-mail "REPLY" and informed of the fix. Thanks for your help...I'll remember your site for future needs.
