Being that the '93 model did not come with "running lights', not only will you have to run wires for the "running lights", you'll also have to change the light themselves. You will need a light with a dual element socket instead of a single element socket. Connect the "running lights' wiring up with any of your dash lights wiring.

Good Luck

Ok for the brake light, the pressure switch for the rear brake may be bad. Find the rear brake master cylinder and follow the metal brake line that comes out of it going to the rear of the bike. You'll find a tee fitting in the line with the pressure switch screwed into it. Check to make sure the wires are plugged onto the spade connectors. If they are, the switch is probably bad and needs to be replaced. Simply screw the old one out and screw the new one in. Do not depresses the rear brake pedel while the switch is out of the line.

As for the tail light, if the bulb is good, you have a wiring problem and need to find where the wires is broken.

Good Luck

Your Wide Glide has two brake light switches. One is in the right handlebar switch housing and operated by a tang on the front brake lever. If it's not working you probably have a bad switch up there as well. The rear brake switch is underneath the bike. Find the metal line coming out of the rear brake master cylinder. Follow this line back towards the rear brake. You should find a "tee" fitting with a small switch screwed into it. It'll have two wire plugs with about four wires on it unless they've changed something. You'll know it when you see it. Replace this switch first. Since the front brake light works off this switch as well, it may fix the front brake light switch as well. If not, you'll have to take the right handlebar switch housing apart to get to the front switch.

Good Luck

SOURCE: What? A 2004 Dyna Wide

Check the bulb, If its a dual filiment than it would make sense both would be out. Otherwise im at a loss to. usually if that happens ive seen the fuse blow, but, usually your headlight would be out too.

Have a 2006 dyna wide glide foot brake light brake light hand brake does not replaced lever wherte is the brake switch


The front brake switch is located inside the right handlebar control. It is a plunger type switch. The correct way to install a new one is to solder the wires on the new switch to existing wires from the old switch. Cut the wires about 2 inches or so from the old switch. Be careful when reinstalling the front lever or you may damage the plunger on the new switch.

When I use the back brake, the brake light won't come on. I have checked the switch and it appears/tests good. I have 12 volts going to the switch. The brake light works with the front brake


Replace the rear brake light switch. I've run into this before as well. When checking the switch with an ohm meter, it appears good but it will not light the rear bulb. The front brake light switch worked correctly as well. I can't explain it but replacing the switch, even though it checks good, solves the problem every time.

02 harley fxdwg brake light stays on


Make sure your rear brake pedal has freeplay in it. when you slowly push the lever down by hand you should be able to feel some freeplay. if not the the reason it keeps staying on is because the vibration of the motor is actually pumping up your brake ( light too ) and not releasing it until it bleeds off the pressure.
