Hi Anonymous, always check fuses and bulbs first for broken filaments. Then check the connection at the rear fender wiring harness, inspect for corroded, broken or loose pins. Use a dab of dielectric grease and repair as necessary. Check your brake relay if you have one , check your brake light switches for continuity, some models rear turn signals were single filament bulbs only, no running light. If all else fails get out your test light and start tracking the power wire from the harness connection.

SOURCE: Speedo, turn signals, brake lights, horn stopped working. All else is fine.

Gap your plugs to 38 thou. Check all your bulbs (one burned out will affect the rest) Take a look at all your fuses and make sure they are all ok. Otherwise you are probably looking at a wiring short which will require trouble shooting of the elctrical system. Buy your self a service manual for your bike, this will help you a lot.

The left rear running doesn't illuminate. the


If you have rear running lights, the bike has an accessory (Harley OR aftermarket) running light module. If the module wiring is connected securely, it's possible the module has failed. If this is the case= no fix except to replace the module.

Runnin lights dont work but blinkers do


The only running lights will be the front. Make sure there are 3 wires going to the front turn signals. If not then you have a set of rears on the front. The wire color for the running light side is blue. That can be ( or should be ) attached to an Orange/ white wire ( that is a typical key on hot for Harley ) I would also double check the ground on them as well, since the turn signal can actually pick up a ground by back feeding through itself, but would still not let the running light to work
