Hi Robert, always check your instrument fuse before performing the next procedure, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap on Twin Cams and on top of the engine case between the rear cylinder and the starter motor for Sportsters. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs. Please visit the website below for more information and good luck.

SOURCE: My signal lights, hazard lights, and tail light aren't working.

Check the rear bulbs.If they are working (brakes+lights) check the wires.For the turn signals, override the flasher relay.If they are coming on then you need to replace the relay.If not then check the left hand side clip on switch.

SOURCE: Speedo, turn signals, brake lights, horn stopped working. All else is fine.

Gap your plugs to 38 thou. Check all your bulbs (one burned out will affect the rest) Take a look at all your fuses and make sure they are all ok. Otherwise you are probably looking at a wiring short which will require trouble shooting of the elctrical system. Buy your self a service manual for your bike, this will help you a lot.

SOURCE: 1998 hd 1200 sportster turn signal quit working

check the wiring under the rear tire. you probably tore the wires. if that's fine. do your flasher work? if they do then double check the bulbs. if they're fine them it could be the tsm ( turn signal module ) Only consider replacing that if the wiring is fine and the turn signals worked fine before

SOURCE: lights, turn signals, horn don't work

Look for a bad ground connection inside the headlight shell (or possibly elsewhere). The other thing that all of the items you mention that are working intermittently have in common is the ignition switch. With the switch 'on', check for battery voltage at the fuses for the headlight, turn signals, horn, etc. No voltage at the fuses likely means a bad ignition switch.

Do any lights work, ie signals, four ways. Does rear brake light work and just not light when front brake is applied.

If all lights are dead did you check the lighting fuse?

Fuse panel is under the left side cover.

No speedometer


It would seem to be a wiring related problem. Check all wires around the speedo and where they go around the head stock. Also, check for poor earth connections.

Turn signals on 2001 Chrysler Town & Country cause dash lights to come on and speedometer & odometer quit working


I would say its probably a short or a ground problem at the turn switch or a wire in that area. you need a test light and probably a multi meater and some nohow a ground or wireing problem can even drive a master teck crasy.

My speedometer on my 03' xl883c just stopped working yesterday on a ride. It still lights up but the needle don't move. What could cause this ?


The speed sensor is magnetic and attracts metal shavings in the transmission fluid, witch build up and block the signal. Try cleaning it. It's located on the top of the transmission below the starter. remove it and wipe the metal off the end, and replace it.
