Are the bulbs the correct ones???? If so and everything else is good you are looking at a wiring problem that will have to be traced to the problem source. What relay is good???

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.

Good luck
Steve

Brake light doesn't work on my 2008 fxd,running lights are fine


Hi Anonymous, always check fuses and bulbs first for broken filaments. Then check the connection at the rear fender wiring harness, inspect for corroded, broken or loose pins. Use a dab of dielectric grease and repair as necessary. Check your brake relay if you have one , check your brake light switches for continuity, some models rear turn signals were single filament bulbs only, no running light. If all else fails get out your test light and start tracking the power wire from the harness connection.

2001 hd dyna wide glide brake light does not come on when brakes are applied , tail light works,bulb is ok , is it the brake sensor ,where is it located and what does it look like thanx


Your Wide Glide has two brake light switches. One is in the right handlebar switch housing and operated by a tang on the front brake lever. If it's not working you probably have a bad switch up there as well. The rear brake switch is underneath the bike. Find the metal line coming out of the rear brake master cylinder. Follow this line back towards the rear brake. You should find a "tee" fitting with a small switch screwed into it. It'll have two wire plugs with about four wires on it unless they've changed something. You'll know it when you see it. Replace this switch first. Since the front brake light works off this switch as well, it may fix the front brake light switch as well. If not, you'll have to take the right handlebar switch housing apart to get to the front switch.

Good Luck

I have a 2000 roadking. the brake light is not working but the tail light works. changed bulb there is power going to the brake light switch an u can hear the relay clicking when you hit the brakes. but if...


To begin with, there is no relay for the brake light. That thing you hear clicking is a circuit breaker. You probably have a short circuit between the rear brake light switch underneath the bike and the brake light itself. If the tail lights work, then you know what circuit is ok.

Look at your rear brake master cylinder. Find the metal line coming out of it going to the rear of the bike. In that line, under the bike, you'll find a pressure switch. This is the rear brake light switch. The front brake light switch is located in the right side handlebar switch housing. If neither switch works the brake light, odds are you have a short circuit in the wiring from the rear brake light switch to the rear brake light itself.

Good Luck

The blinkers work but the brake lights dont for a 2003 harley davidson dyna super glide...how can i fix this?


Check to see if the brake light works when you apply the front brakes. If they work but if the brake light won't come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed, the rear brake light switch is bad. Find the rear brake master cylinder and you'll see a metal line coming out of it. Follow the line back towards the rear of the bike until you come to a tee in the line. The brake light switch is screwed into the tee and a couple of wires plugged onto it.

If neither your rear brake light nor you tail light works, first check the bulb. If the bulb is good, you might have a wiring problem. The wiring is a sub-harness that plugs up under the seat area and then runs back to the rear light assembly. The turn signal wiring usually run down each side of the rear fender behind the fender struts.

Ride Safe

When I use the back brake, the brake light won't come on. I have checked the switch and it appears/tests good. I have 12 volts going to the switch. The brake light works with the front brake


Replace the rear brake light switch. I've run into this before as well. When checking the switch with an ohm meter, it appears good but it will not light the rear bulb. The front brake light switch worked correctly as well. I can't explain it but replacing the switch, even though it checks good, solves the problem every time.
