Question about Harley Davidson FLHR - FLHRCI Road king Motorcycles
04 Road King. All lights fade when riding. Steady throttle & they fade in & out (not off). When idle stay steady normal lighting. New battery, 6 months ago & road in winter, no problems. Is there a wiring diagram online so I can follow? Of a fuse, wouldn't it just die rather than fade in & out?Any suggestions?
You have either a green corroded wire in the wiring harness, or a short in the headlamps/running lights. It is much easier to find if you have an electronic circut tester. If not slave away with your test light, hooking both to ground terminal to check for power, then reverse to positive terminal to check the ground wire for opens or abrasions. Visually inspect wire harness for signs of wear,corrosion and corrosion. Corrosion will usually show up as a green color around the wire conectors. Due to coper oxide deposits from electrolosis. Hope this helps, I really do. Ride on brother!!!!!!!

There is 2 switches on your bike (like most motorcycles) and one of them is stuck on, broken, or the linkage to it is damaged!
The Front switch is actually part of the master cylinder /lever, and the rear switch is actuated when the right side brake pedal is depressed.
You will need to take a multimeter and check them both for a short with no power on using an ohmmeter. Another way is to disconnect the plug going to the switches & check the brake lite to see if it goes off & if it does that particular switch is in trouble and may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: brake light stays on
hand break switch was broken (inside the wire housing) not allowing the hand break lever to deactive, therefore causing the brake system to stay on.

SOURCE: Rear brake light not workiing
There are two brake light switches. One is in the right handlebar switch housing. This is front brake light switch and is a simple push button type switch actuated by the front brake lever.
The other switch is a pressure switch and it is located in a Tee usually somewhere under the bike near the rear of the transmission. Follow the metal tube coming out of the rear of the master cylinder. It will go back towards the rear brake. Somewhere in that line there will be a tee with the pressure switch in it. If you jumper across this switch, the brake light should work. If it does work when you do this but not work when you depress the rear brake signal, replace the rear brake light switch.

If you bike is equipped with a carburetor, the idle stop screw is located at the top of the carb on the right side. Counterclockwise turn slows the idle speed.
If you bike is fuel injected, a dealer or shop will have to set the idle speed electronically.
