Question about 2004 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre

1 Answer

Right turn signals stay on, left stay off.

I have a 2004 Honda Sabre vt1100 c2. Both of the right side turn signals act like running lamps and both of the left side don't. The right side flashes quickly and the left seem to flash normally. Why?

Hi!
From your good description I would say either a bad earth or corrosion.
Check bulbs too as wrong wattage can cause grief.
Make sure all bulb contacts inside holder are not corroded (With ignition OFF) also the sides are clean too for good earthing, still a problem? then check all wire connections to each indicator, a little WD40 or similar all round is a great help when doing this.
Good Luck!

    Hello,
    Your motorcycle is Negative Earth, this means the polarity of the Battery Negative is attached to the chassis/frame and the Positive is the main circuit feed to electrical items. I order not to cause a short circuit (Direct contact between both Negative- and Positive+) they are isolated.
    For your electrical equipment to function correctly a completed circuit from Positive through to negative needs to take place.
    So if corrosion occurs on/in the chassis or component a Bad Earth (To Chassis!) causes problems as the current cannot flow smoothly, also Electricity will always find the shortest route so may not let the equipment work as it should, Namely your Turn Signal indicators.
    That Help?
    Please remember to appraise my effort.

2004 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre neutral switch not working@


Hi, Michellep282 and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light bulb burnt out.
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. If the neutral light stays on while the bike is in gear the wire from the light to the neutral switch is grounded.

Right turn signals stay on, left stay off.


Check the ground wires on both of the right turn signal lamps.
Be sure the lamp sockets aren't corroded. Be sure the pins at the bottom are clean and make good contact with the bulb bases.
Rapid flashing usually means a bulb is out.
