Please specify the make and model of bike. Go to auto parts or M/C shop and ask for your motorcycle repair manual. Of course for the bikes I've worked on most have the flasher under the Seat or Tank.

I have a 2003 chevy box truck and the headlamps flash while hitting bumps in the road, the turn signal swich was replaced and still does it.


I am assuming you mean the turn signal switch was replaced in the hopes the problem was the dimmer switch.
The headlight switch sends a ground signal to the body computer which controls the high and low headlight relays. It sounds like you have a bad connection in the wiring harness somewhere, especially if the high and low beams blink.

No Headlights


In the late 1990s GM and most other car companies changed the configuration of headlight circuits. Now the headlight switch provides the ground circuit instead of power. So yes there is a relay between the main switch and the dimmer.
The headlights get power from left and right 15amp fuses, and the relay and main switch provides the ground circuit. Your owner's manual should tell you which relay in the box is for headlights.

Does a 74 olds 98 have a relay for the headlights?


It has a headlight switch. Pull the knob out and it goes from off, to parking, to headlights. A (foot) press switch on the floor controls the low and high beam. The (low) wattage of the headlights back then and not needing to run small wiring through the turn signal switch, allowed them not to require a relay to run the headlights. You have two relays. Your flasher (turn signal) relay - under the dash. And your horn relay mounted on the firewall.

1995 huyndai excel, lost power to left side park light, tail light and dash light any reason why?


Recheck your work. Pull the connector off at the flasher and inspect it before plugging it back in. Not much room to work under there in an Excel? Maybe you pulled a wire loose somewhere? Kinda weird, cause the park, tail, and dash lights are all operated by the headlight switch, no relation to the turn signals and flasher relay. Or do you mean the left indicator light on the dash? That would make me think the flasher connection again, or the left side wires up under there. H H, josh...happy ha ha, merry christmas.

Turning my headlights on blows the fuses to running lights and dashlights


headlight switch is bad, change the headlight switch itsellf will short out, therefore blowing your fuse. turn signals and break lights are on a different relay, therefore they will still work

I have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee and my turn signals stopped working. My hazard lights are working fine. Lights are working also. But im not getting a light on the dash for my turn signals.


I have the same issue. I took the flasher relay out, inspected the pieces for any hairline fractures on the circuit board, nothing it was clean. On my jeep, the turn signals always work in the Spring, Summer, Fall months, but as soon as Winter hits I loose my turn signals. Also, I know it is temperature related because I drive around for a half hour and the signals work again. It is really strange, I think the issue is somewhere in the ground wire, I will be checking that next and will post any new information. Anybody else who has had this issue and correlation I would certainly like to hear about any solutions. Thanks

1994 ford explorer both headlights went out all of a sudden changed switch checked fuses no power at bulb socket running lights still work im stuck


Find the headlight relay and swap it with another relay to see if the lights come back on. If they do, replace the relay with a new one.

We have a 2005 GS 500F. The turn signals stopped


Try replacing the indicator relay, the fuse won't just go unless the circuit has been overloaded (unlikely if you haven't touched it) the relay will be somewhere by the headlight, as for the fuses they usually are located to the left or right below where your handle bars are (under the plastic cover/fairing)

I have no running lights on my 1996 F150. I have chased wires as best I can, replaced the headlight switch. Headlights work but 30a fuse blows as soon as I turn them on. Turn signals and brake lights work....


If you have trailer lights make sure you don't have a short in the connector or harness. You obviously have a short somewhere after the fuse. Try unlpugging each running light. to see if its in the light connecter. also check the side markers
