Hi Anonymous, start by checking the bulb in your TS then the TS button for continuity. I posted a couple websites below for more help and information, as far as your bike not firing the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.
For a primary suspect please visit the website below: Good luck

SOURCE: 01 Softail Deuce left turn signal comes on, will not go off

I'm new to this site but actually has fielded a question about a Triumph motorcycle I'm worrking on!

I have an '03 Anniversary Deuce and I ran into (not the exact) but similar problem. My bike has the bars internally wired from the grips all the way through the top triple tree. Somehow over time the turn signal wire got shorted "internally". You might want to just unbolt the turn signal switch from the bars to see if the wire got pinched up high. If not...move the wires around to see if that helps. If it does...ultimately you should re-wire the connections. Just my experience...good luck!

SOURCE: left turn signal an speedometer

There was a recall on the speedometers about 2004.
Some were defective and just quit working. H-D replaced them for free. Not sure about your year/model, but I would contact a dealer or area service rep to see if it falls under the guidelines.

SOURCE: MY 1990 HARLEY SOFTAIL HAS NO SPARK BATTERY IS NEW AND IT TURNS OVER

Either the stator plate, or coil is not getting power. First thing I would check would be power from the coil with an ohmmeter.

The fork oil is a very specific job needing a manual and a special tool, I don't want to insult anyones mechanical knowledge but if you have never done it before, best to take somewhere else. Engine oil on the other hand is easy, the drain tube to any softail is on the right side by where the frame meets the swing arm, has somekind of plug in it. Start and run bike for a little while, long enough to get it warm but not hot. Remove fill plug and then remove plug in drain line. Using a peice of cardboard or something put in between filter and frame , directing the oil to your drain pan instead of where ever it goes. Put 1 qt oil back in (after everything is reinstalled) start the bike and make sure the oil light goes out, when it does shut bike off and fill to the point that when it is standing upright you get a little oil on the tip of your finger, over filling may result in loss of oil cap from pressure (been there)

Turn signal wiring was cut


Should only be 2 wires back there. Look at the opposite working side and it will have 2 wires also, one the same color and one a different color. The 2 wires matching in color are your ground wires for each side. Then you have a color for left and another color for right...Good luck
