Question about Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide Motorcycles
Running Lights Not Working But Turn Signals Working On Rear of bike
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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!

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.

Testimonial: "quick response to my posted problem. don't know yet if that's the problem, but i've got a good place to start looking. thanks for the help."
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.

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)
