SOURCE: I have a 2001 Harley Sportster and I had the LH

The unit must be grounded to the bikes frame. Connect it back up to the bike this time without pinching the wires. You should have a blue wire, a violet/brown wire and a black wire if you have the three wire unit, minus the black with the two wire unit. The blue wire is for the running light, the violet/brown wire is for the turn signal and the black wire is ground. If you don't have a ground wire, the metal part of the signal light itself is the ground.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Wiring problems on 2000 Harley 883 Sportster

If you have two wires that go to the turn signal and they don't work one way. You could try them switched around.
This is for a turn signal that is NOT also a running light. (Yellow Lens to Rear)
Use a test light and turn on the turn signal test both wires with the test light clipped to the ground or chassis of the bike. The wire that causes the light to blink will be the positive or hot side. That wire should attach to the bottom of the bulb.
The other wire is the Ground or common and that should attach to the side of the bulb holder.

Rear turn signals won't flash unless I hold my test light onto the terminal board for that side


Hi, Joseph you have a ground or flasher problem if this answer doesn't help resolve your issue please contact me at the email address below, before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you may have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

How come my turn signal just stays on instead of blinking on my Harley Davidson sportster?


Could possibly be an incorrect bulb replacement or a relay? Let us know. Thank you. Please leave feedback on whether those were the problem.

Rear turn signals wont blink


If you don't have front turn signals, the rear won't flash, as they're wired in series.

If you replaced the turn signals with LEDs, then yes, a load equalizer is usually needed.

84 harley sportster want to change from turn signal only ( one wire,black) to turn signal and marker light (two wire,purple and black) rear


You'll have to replace the single filament turn signal unit with a dual filament unit and wire the brake light to one filament and the tail light to the other one. Make sure you've got a good ground on the turn signal unit.

Good Luck

Removing stock rear turn signals on 2006 Harley Davidon 1200


I have not removed the turn signals from a model this late. There may be a nut between the fender and the fender strut. You may have to remove the fender to get the turn signals off.

Turn signal probs


This is going to be one of three things, and you should check them in this order, 1- you have a loose connection, bad/broken ground wire, or an exposed/bare wire on, around, or in line with the rear signal that is staying on. It's common for the wiring insulation to rub through and short at the bend where the signal wires go through the signal mount and run down the rear fender strut. 2- the switch on the bars is sticking or malfunctioning, however, this is less likely because it usually causes both signals to remain on. and 3- the flasher relay has malfunctioned and needs replaced. I'll bet that this is a bare wire, so start by tracing the signal wires for the right side. If you don't find a bad wire, then replace the relay. Let me know what you found out.
