    To Van Kerr. Thanks for responding. I found the problem.When you turn a H.D. ign, switch on it has a tiny bit of movement while still being in the on position, (play) when i went to turn the switch off i noticed the signal indicator lit up! Living 4 blocks from the beach the salt air started working on elec, connections and contact switches.I pulled the switch cleaned it with elec,contact spray. Problem solved. THANK YOU.......ANT.

    Hi ....... Check to see if you've correctly connected the battery up, (positive & negative) .............. from memory I remember some Harleys having two earths and a second positive lead (to battery) from the turn signal module (behind right side panel) .......... Let us know how you get on.

More than likely, dampness has caused corrosion to form between the turn signal BULBS and the turn signal bulb SOCKETS. FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE: Remove turn signal bulb from its socket, spray the socket with ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER, wipe off bulb terminal end with a cloth that has been sprayed with Electrical Contact Cleaner, put a little DIELECTRIC GREASE on the terminal end of the bulb, Reinstall the bulb into its socket, Remove any fingerprints from bulb with a soft cloth. Be sure to note that the Bulbs do not have broken filaments, Replace the Bulb if it does. That SHOULD take care of your Turn Signal Problem. IF NOT, then further diagnoses of the FLASHER UNIT is required, and I can help you further with that if needed. AS FOR THE TACH PROBLEM, Disconnect any wire lead within the TACH unit that you can find that are easily dissconnectable, and with the same procedure described earlier, spray out with Electrical Contact Cleaner, and reconnect the plugs. That SHOULD solve your problem. If not, contact me further. GOOD LUCK. -Dr.Mark

Why do mobikes do not start during rain


Monsoon has begun and its time for our beloved machines to go into hibernation. So many of us will use [or rarely use] our cars/bikes in the monsoon.

Bajaj bikes are more prone to rust than any other bikes in India. So I have to be very careful when I leave my bike covered/uncovered for more than 2-3 days in the rain. The wheels start rusting. Every 2-3 days I have to use a white powder to remove the rusts. Now its not possible to do that all the time. I have tried using the *"brown" anti-rust. But then after a week I realised that it is useless. The wheel still rusts, but u do not realise it unless u touch the area or the rust comes off.

If it happens only when it rains it means that water or moisture is getting under the distributor. The distributor needs to be replaced. Good Luck. Let me know how it turns out.

2001 cherokee windshield washers not working


Can you hear it make a "buzzing" pump noise when you press the fluid button try it with the key on and the engin off so you can hear better? also do you live up north and is it or has it been below freezing? and if so are you using winter non freeze formula?

1, if there is no pump noise then first check the fuse box, unfortunatly it could be the pump had burned out from dry running.

2. MORE Likely if your in the North, people often forget to put in winter washer fluid espically if the car has been down south. ice crystals form in the hoses and block the fluid, easy fixes is to park in a warm garage over night once thawed spray all the fluid out and put in winter formula otherwise it will happen again.

3. you could have a dirt blockage in the hose if the pump is working and your not in the cold north, see if you can gently remove the hose near the bottle and have somone press the button see if fluid comes out then reattach and repet these steps till you find the blocked fluid hose.

Good luck.
