Hi ..... Do you mean the indicator/turn signal or the turn signal modual ?
No flashing (but illuminated) usually means a bad (or no) earth. Try placing a wire (with stripped ends) against the indicator and a good earthing point ie the frame or engine.
Let us know how you get on.

Both turn signals flash


Hi Anonymous, always check fuses and bulbs first, you could have a faulty turn signal module or a bad turn signal button/switch, remove it from the switch housing and check for continuity, check your wiring and connections from the turn signal switch to the turn signal module with a testlite. Make sure all wires are not worn or pinched and connector pins are not corroded, broken, or loose. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website below:

Trying to change turn signals to bullet signals, new ones won't flash.


Your bike is equipped with a turn signal microprocessor to make the "cancelling turn signals" work. It is very sensitive to the resistance of the bulbs in the turn signals. If you change the turn signal, the bulbs may not have the same resistance and it will cause them to not flash when you press the button. If you'll contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net , I'll send you a trouble shooting guide for your turn signals.

Left turn signal comes on when I turn the ignition then doesn't work


I am having the same issue on a 2005 FLHRCI Road King Classic. Basically the left turn signal comes on when I start the engine. It will not cancel by pushing the left turn signal button. However, if I push the right turn signal button the left will go off and the right will start blinking. Sometimes, this same action starts all four signals blinking (like the emergency flashers). It is very erratic. I have Kuryakan pancea rear taillights and brake light. The brake light went out so I went a bought a new brake/taillight with a new adapter. Brake lights work now but the blinker problems happens whether the back lights are connected or not. Front turn signals are stock.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

DeJevu! I thought I answered this already. Anyway, I'll do it again. The first thing I'd try is putting new bulbs in the turn signal lights. Use the proper bulb called for in the books. This is a pretty inexpensive test.

Next, you didn't say whether or not it was both sides or just one side that was not blinking. The turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. I'd try to find someone that had a known good unit that would allow me to try the unit to see if that fixed the problem. I say this because the units are expensive. The last one I replaced costs about $150.

Oh yeah, on the Softail, I think the "tilt switch" located in the speedometer is involved in cancelling the turn signals as well. If the switch is stuck in the closed position, it may be cancelling the turn signal as soon as you set it. The switch is not in the circuit for the four way flashers. You'd have to look at a schematic to tell for certain. Sorry, I don't have one for a Softail.

Left turn signal not working proper


Turn signals flashing is the confirmation of alarm system being on.I thought both sides flashed but if alarm is faulty guess that's messed up too. Try starting from stratch with alarm,disarm it[disconnect neg wire at battery]then reconnect wire and when that sets off alarm turn it off in normal way.That should get things back on track.Plus,try replacing the flasher unit,don't know why this works but I've heard of it.
