Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FXDWGI Dyna Wide Glide
If computer has code stored for turn signal fault, light will flash quickly. If code is cleared, lights return to normal flash until rear brake pedal is depressed. Am using a voltage equalizer...fyi All lights work regardless of speed of flash.

Hi Anonymous, the newer the bike the more complex the electrics get and so does the frustration levels when trying to diagnois. That beig said I would try a complete reset of the security system and as a long shot have you tried replacing the rear brake light switch? Good luck

You should have two filaments in the reat taillight lamp, one for tail light and one for brake light. You are not confusing these filaments/functions are you?
What you seem to be saying to me is that you have a lamp that had no tail light filament (burned out) but does have a brake light filament still intact.
Remove the light and check it visually and/or with a contunity tester.
I hope this helps you ...
If I misunderstood your question, please ask me again

First, I'd try replacing the bulbs in both the front and rear turn signals. See what happens, that's pretty inexpensive to try.
The turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. You didn't mention if the problem was on just one side or if it was on both sides of the bike. I'd try to find someone that had a known good unit that would allow me to try it. The reason, they're expensive. The last one I installed cost nearly $150.

You need to check you rear brake master cylinder. Something is wrong with this as your rear brake is not working. The brake light for the rear brake is activated by a pressure switch whereas your front brake light is activated by an normal push/release switch. Fix your rear brake problem and the brake light problem will be repaired as well.
It may be time to rebuild your rear brake master cylinder.

Sorry but I don't have a wiring diagram that I can send you but I may can offer a bit of help.
Your passing lamps are simply wired into a hot circuit somewhere. A lot of schematics don't show them because they are considered "add ons". They also may have a fuse inline with the "hot" wire. They have only one wire that connects them to the bike with the rest being inside the "light bar" itself. Find the wire coming out of the center of the "light bar" and trace it back to where it hooks up. Sorry but that's the best I can do on this one.
On your front brake light, there is a switch located inside your right hand switch housing where your throttle is located. It is a plunger type switch that is activated when you pull the front brake lever. A simple test of the switch is to loosen the bolts of the master cylinder and slide it towards the center of the handlebars. If the switch is good, the brake light will come on. If the switch is bad, it will not.
To get to the switch, you'll have to take the right hand switch housing apart. First, loosen the throttle cables at the adjusters and then remove the two bolts that hold the switch housing halves together. Carefully open up the switch housing. You will see the small switch in the front of the housing. You'll have to desolder the wires, replace the switch with a new one, and resolder the wires to the new switch.
Reassembly is the reverse of the disassembly. Make sure you slide the master cylinder all the way back against the switch housing or the brake light will stay on constantly. Readjust the throttle cables and check for proper operation. You don't want your throttle sticking.
