I don't know what year your bike is so hard to detail anymore than you must have a short in the running lite circuit but I do not even know if the front running lites work or not or f any other lites are working but if you are blowing fuses you must have a a wiring problem somewhere OR you could also have the wrong bulb in the socket or it is oriented incorrectly in the socket if it is a two contact socket which may seem hard to do but it gets done a lot.

SOURCE: 84 honda shadow 700 vt lights are unpredictable

There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: headlights and tail lights will not come on but

Has to be a bad connection, pull the headlight out and check the plug (or wires) in and around the headlight.

SOURCE: lights, turn signals, horn don't work

Look for a bad ground connection inside the headlight shell (or possibly elsewhere). The other thing that all of the items you mention that are working intermittently have in common is the ignition switch. With the switch 'on', check for battery voltage at the fuses for the headlight, turn signals, horn, etc. No voltage at the fuses likely means a bad ignition switch.

SOURCE: Rear tail light does not turn on.1998 suzuki 1500 intruder

It mught be the bulb that needs replacing or else check the wiring to the bulb for continuity in case there is a broken or snapped bit.If you have a voltmeter then you can test the voltage reading at the point of contact..Sometimes rust builds up and a simple cleaning would solve this.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Rear tail lights and running lights not working.

Make sure that the rear light fuse is not blown
If not trace the brown wire from the rear lights & check for continuity between lamp holder & fuse
As its both rear lights & front sidelights it will not be an earth fault

Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

Tail light's will not work


That's a weird one. Only thing I can think of is a broken wire.
A shorted wire would keep blowing fuses.
Hope this helps.

On my 2007 Harley Davidson fxstd the head light and blinkers work but the running lights, tail light, and brake lights are not working


By "running lights", if you mean just the rear turn signals, usually from the factory the rear turn signals are just that, as they have only a single element bulb.
So that leaves the tail light and brake light.
Check the bulb (dual element), check the fuse, check wiring.

Keep blowing fuse for running lights on trunk, fender marker lights, tail light and front turn signal running lights. can't find bare wire anywhere.


Not necessarily a bare wire. Could just be a slight broken spot in the insulation. Check the wiring inside the rear fender. Sometimes the tire gets into the wiring harness and chews things up a bit. This usually happens on lowered bikes.

My tail lights/brake lights wont come on and the signal lights either. But the turn signal will light up when activated. Whats wrong? Its not the fuse. Should i just bring it to the dealership?


Taking your bike to a dealership might be the best choice. If you can't troubleshoot it, I certainly have a time trying to locate a problem without the benefit of being at the bike myself.

Running lights work but no blinkers or brake lights. Changed fuses and bulbs no luck


I'm inclined to believe it is the turn signal switch. When you select left or right, the brake light is removed from that side, and the flasher is connected to the bulb instead, making the brake light on that side flash as the indication that you plan to turn. You have lost everything, but the simple answers check out.

If you have lost signals, brake lights and tail lights, then it is more likely that the ground supplied to the bulbs is not working, since the tail lights share noting in common with the brakes lights and turn signals but ground.

If the tail lights work, the fact that the brake lights and rear turn signals share that switch starts to look meaningful — even more so if the front turn signals also don't work. But the front signals and the rear signals use different circuitry in the switch, so it would be something more mechanical in the switch than electrical in that case.
