SOURCE: '86 Shadow right front turn signal doesn't work

you may want to trace your wires to that light and check to make sure that your ground wire for that side is clean and tight that may take care of your problem all together

sounds like a poor ground issue, pull out the headlight and check all connections in there, your turn signals are on seperate feeds than the lights but they will probably share the same ground/earth in the headlight

SOURCE: 1984 honda magna v30 lacking power but starts

This motorcycle does not have any type of governor system.
Has the bike been sitting for a long time (ie; more than 6~12 months)? If so, then the carburetors are clogged with fuel varnish and need to be cleaned. A slow return to idle - as well as low power output - can also be caused by plugged carbs, low compression, and/or cracked and leaking intake manifolds.

If the compression is low (less than 140~160 PSI per cylinder), check and adjust the valve tappet clearance. If a valve adjustment fails to restore low compression, then you've got more serious engine troubles.

For your intermittant left front running light, try spraying some electrical contact cleaner into the turn signal switch. As for the rear units, they are turn signals only (no running/parking lights).

My turn signals sometimes will quit working then I have to hit the hazard lights button leave it on and then turn my turn signals on then they work what causes this to happen


When the turn signals quit working pull up , down , front to back an back to front on the turn signal switch handle . Do they work when doing this ? Pontiac had bad switch . The power for the turn signals goes through the flasher / hazard module . Could be the switch or the module.
The HAZARD LPS fuse in the left hand instrument panel (LH IP) junction block supplies battery positive voltage to the flasher module, which is part of the hazard switch assembly. The TURN LPS fuse in the LH IP junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the flasher module. The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in the ON position. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, current flow is from the flasher module's output to the turn signal switch assembly. The flasher module then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, all the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.

How do i fix my problem, left indicator starts flashing when turn engine on but stalk will not stop left side or start the right side yet hazards work fine


One of the most important safety systems in the car is the Turn signal system. It can help prevent accidents by signalling to other drivers on the road when you need to change course and which way you'll be turning. It is also required by law to have a car dashboard turn signal indicator that works properly. You will need to wire the indicator in your dashboard to the proper lights and locations in the car. For a standard turn signal indicator in which the turn signal lights are the brake lights, please check this link on how you can do this:

Problem with turn signal when headlight is on


this sounds like a earthing problem , so check the wiring for the head lights, see if any wires are trapped between something, bare wire touching car body , anythingthat doesn't look correct, could also be the indicator lever itself with a problem , but check the headlight wiring first

Left turn signal lights are not working


In my case the left front turn indicator lamp worked, but not the left rear indicator, although all the lamps would turn on with running lights activated, as well as the backup light and 'night-light' mode. The left rear turn indicator would not work with the hazard lights activated. I tested the combination switch (this is the left/right turn indicator switch you use when driving to indicate which direction you are going and is mounted/located on the steering column) and it tested O.K.. I had good continuity from the combination switch black wire, and resistance on the blue-white wire from there to the left rear turn indicator lamp, as well as good continuity on all wires going out from the left parking light fuse. Since the Haynes manual indicated that the flasher module was probably good if it made the tell-tale clicking sound, I was feeling perplexed. So I took it into a local shop that specialized in auto electrics and it turned out to be the flasher module. I was under the impression that it operated in a straight-forward left-right manner, but apparently it has a different circuit for each turn indicator lamp. So even if it is making the appropriate clicking sound when the combo switch is flipped, it could still be the flasher module. Obviously the manual leaves a bit to be desired in the troubleshooting of malfunctioning turn indicators.

My left rear turn signal is out on my 2006 Malibu. The bulb is good, but I replaced it anyway since I had the assembly apart. The left front flasher works fine as well. Before I try and replace any...


Stop lamp an hazard lights work ?
The body control module (BCM) is responsible for controlling the turn signals and hazard lamps. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left turn or right turn position, the BCM receives a signal from the turn signal switch. The BCM then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, the BCM receives a signal from the hazard switch. The BCM then will send an on-off voltage signal to all the turn signal lamps. All the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.

Repair an open, high resistance, or short to ground in the inoperative turn signal supply voltage circuit. Refer to Circuit Testing and Wiring Repairs .
Did you complete the repair?
