Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FLHR Road king
The front signals are working but no rear turn lights
Posted by Anonymous on
Do both sides not work??? What are you calling the tail light and the rear fender light??? Is the brake light working??? What if anything was done on the bike prior to this.

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

The only "mystery box" that I can think of is the turn signal cancelling unit. It controls most of the lighting on your bike. The box is about an inch and a half wide by about three inches long, little over half an inch thick.
Disconnect the plug on the end of the box and check the pins to make sure they're clean. Also check for any sign of a short between the box and the light. I've seen people buy the box, and they ain't cheap, only to find out that they had a short somewhere in the wire. If you do have a short, the only thing you'll see is that the light won't work. It will not blow a fuse or anything like that. As far as I know, there is not way to test the output unless you've got a special plug made up to do so with. If you know someone that has one, swap the box out with a known good one. Last time I bought one of these boxes, it cost $150 and that was several years ago. Good Luck.

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."
The unit must be grounded to the bikes frame. Connect it back up to the bike this time without pinching the wires. You should have a blue wire, a violet/brown wire and a black wire if you have the three wire unit, minus the black with the two wire unit. The blue wire is for the running light, the violet/brown wire is for the turn signal and the black wire is ground. If you don't have a ground wire, the metal part of the signal light itself is the ground.
