Blowing turn signal fuse

Hello. I have a V Star 650 Classic 2003. When I bought the bike the front left blinker and running light was very rusted and didn't work. I cleaned it out and got it to work but that side blinks faster like a bulb is out. I just installed a lightbar and now every time I turn on the ignition I blow the blinker fuse. I took off the lightbar and disconected the signals and head lamp. It still blows the fuse as soon as I turn the key. Any ideas? Thanks so much,
Dave

Every time you turn bike on front lamps are cuasing fuse failure. you have a running light pwr pinched. diconnect battery ground and secure lead so it cant get back to post. Use an ohm meter check lights pwr leads to ground looking for meter to see if continuity to chassis ground exsists. ohm's found in milla or killa values should not be mistaken for short to ground more like the resistance through light fillament. best checked with all bulbs to circuit removed. Continuity through test leads should be subtracted from test value good connection .1ohm no connection = OFL or open.

Hi, Anonymous just hold in both turn signal buttons at the same time for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one.

Keep blowing fuse for running lights on trunk, fender marker lights, tail light and front turn signal running lights. can't find bare wire anywhere.


Not necessarily a bare wire. Could just be a slight broken spot in the insulation. Check the wiring inside the rear fender. Sometimes the tire gets into the wiring harness and chews things up a bit. This usually happens on lowered bikes.

Front left running light burns too bright and left rear blinker blinks faster.


Hi Kevin, you have the front left turn signal bulb installed 180 degrees out or your wiring is bass ackwards. Good luck and have nice day.

The marker ("running") lights are a separate circuit than the signal lights.
Normally you have a tail light, and the front running lights on with the headlight.
The bulbs used in the rear signal lights would be a single filament 1156 bulb, whereas the bulbs in the front are dual filament, one for turn signal, one for running light.

My 2007 yamaha v star 650 keeps blowing the fuse that goes to the turn signal brake lights and horn


There seem to a 'live' wire (in the turn signal, brake light or horn circuit) touching the frame of the bike and thus the fuse blowing.
You will have to trace out the short-circuit.
You can start wth removing the connections to the turn signals thn fit the fuse and see if it still blows ....like wise remove the wire to the brake light and thn check if the fuse blows, same to the horn.
In short ..you can remove all the wires connections to these and thn fit the fuse and refit the wiring connections one by one ,where the fuse will blow after connecting the wire to say brake light thn the problem is at the brake light wiring ....likewise to the others ...onces you identify the circuit tht has the problem thn it will be easy to trace it and rectify it.
Hope this helps!
