Hi Bob: sounds the repair shop did not follow thru with the repairs. In my shop we solve the problem before the bike leaves. They were on the wright track. Recommend the tire to be removed and pull the wiring down so you can open the sleeve and inspect ALL the wires. you may find bare wires shorting out. Repair them and ride like the wind. Fran PS find a good local shop they will treat you the best.

I'd say that you have an intermittant short somewhere. These are very difficult to find. I'd start at the tail light assembly as most of the time, I've found the shorts in that area, from the seat back to the tail light assembly.

Good Luck

SOURCE: keep blowing fuse on fender

You will boil your battery with 18 Volts on it but that won't blow your fuse. I would look for chafed wires or the light socket itself.

SOURCE: Started to blow accessories fuse two nights ago.

You really need a schematic to determine what equipment is on the circuit protected by this fuse. I do not have schematics for the late model machines, only a few earlier models. Some of the equipment supplied by this fuse are connected by sub-harnesses with plugs on them. If you unplug a sub-harness and the fuse stops blowing, then you know it's something on that leg of the circuit. You may have to take the tanks and the seat off to access the plugs.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Fuse keeps blowing as soon as my 2000 Ultra is

Check the wiring under the handlebar assembly that controls that side, sometimes if this is taken apart for mod, a wire get pinched under the assembly. Check both sides while your at it. I would put a fuse in and unplug all the connectors, with the bike on, start connecting the connectors back and the fuse should blow, then you know exactly which system your working with. Check ALL the wiring in that system, I bet its a pinched wire up in the handle bars.

Let me know what happens please.

Turn signals and brake lights an horn stopped working on 2004 2004 harley roadking


Hi, Rick 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 could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

Honda xr125 L blowing 15amp fuse while i was riding no lights or starter or horn


Sounds like a short like the insulation on wire rubbed off. Could also be a loose connection on either the hot or ground side of light circuit. This would blow a fuse.

Battery fuse blows, lights still work but speedo and tach wont and wont start back up or crank until fuse is replaced


Hi Dale, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and connect it to the power side of the, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, start by tracking the out bound wire towards the ignition switch and beyond if necessary, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

Tried to hook up horn on a yamaha maxim xj700 now i keep blowing fuse and nothing comes on and wont run or turn over


Usually what I will do is first.

Have you had any recent work done on your bike? Anything that, while puting it back together may have pinched a wire? If so youll have to visually inspect all the wire that is involved.

Look by the tires, and uder the fenders for spots where the wiring may be rubbing.

You may have to look at a wiring diagrahm of the bike, and see all associated wiring with the horn. Specifically if you unplug the horn and it doesnt blow the fuse, but, as soon as you hook up the horn the fuse blows. This may be unlikely as most horns are not energized untill the button is pressed, which the fuse would then blow. If its blowing on its own, this means you have a wire rubbing somewhere, or the horn itself is faulty.

Check the wiring diagrahm, check the wires, check the components.

Hope this helps a little bit.

Hi Fishguy656, if you have a security alarm on your bike it's tied into your turn signals and any wiring problem you had with the rear tire must be addressed and correctly repaired. Next I would try a reset on your alarm system, for more information on your question please visit the websites below and good luck:

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.
