Question about Motorcycles
I replaced all my turn signals with new ones. Everything worked fine until I inadvertently touched a live wire to a ground and popped the fuse. I replaced the fuse and now have lost my tail light and front running lights. Brake light works fine as does the turn signals. I checked all the bulbs and fuses. Everything looked ok. Anyone know what to look for now? Could I have damaged something when the live wire touched a ground?

The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

SOURCE: Non-working tail lights
Tail light bulbs used are double element one is tail one is turn check your bulbs and, make sure the lamps for your turnsignal have two pins and, are a different number than your other lamps
