Gidday Bill, Have a good look at this link and hopefully you will get the answers you need. They are apparently a wee bit of a bummer as far as colour coding goes.

Does any have a wiring schematic for a 98 ford explorer xlt?

Best thing is to do a Web search titled "1998 ford explorer wiring diagram". This will give you results which include fuse boxes and power boxes and color coded wiring routing. Check for other items that are on the same fuse as the turn signals to see if they work. The turn signal flasher unit could also be bad.

1998 Heritage had aftermarket rear led turn signals mounted on the fender struts,they were very small and hard to see.So i want to replace them bigger incandecent lights.My question is ;Can I use the

The aftermarket LED's will likely have a signal reducer in-line that will have to be removed before you put standard lights in. The reason it will have these, are because when you replace OEM lights with after market LED's they have a tendancy to HYPER-FLASH. Simply because they are computer controlled instead of flasher controlled.

Trying to connect signal lights on a 88 soft tail.need color of wires. Did this year have flashing signals?

I know the 88 model FLH's had them so it's a good bet that the Softails had them as well. Usually, the turn signal wires were grey in color. The had these little bands around them that indicated which side they went to. The violet marked wire goes to the right side signals and the brown marked wire goes to the left side. They did flash and I'm pretty sure they had the self cancelling turn signal unit on them. The unit is a "black box" unit about 1/2" thick by 1" wide by about an 1 1/2" long. It has a single plug on it. If you'll contact me directly at , I'll send you a pin out and a trouble shooting guide. Remind me of what you need.

Good Luck

I bought a running light kit for my 06 Heritage. When i connect the harness my turn signals do not work properly. when i engage the right turn signal to turn it off the light stays lit on the console. When...

The wiring harness on the new unit is wired wrong, or you have connected it wrong. If it is a plug and play design, they made it on a friday night at 5:30. lol Check wire to wire color code. If they dont match, switch wires in the connector to make them match. If you can not do that, use a bench test battery and see which wire lights up what. Make a wire diagram of your bike and one for your running lights. See which wires are not matched. Match and test. Should work. Chaz Moto DC

Turn signals have been disconected

is the wiring stowed near where the old signals were? if they are, is there a common color wire between all 4 signals?

if there isn't a common color and you are handy with a voltmeter (set to ohms with the buzzer on), you can ring them to ground (an unpainted frame bolt) to see which ones buzz. those that buzz to ground with the ignition off are the ground (negative) wires. the other is the turn signal wire.

the last step (assuming either the rear signals or front signals are a 3 wire system) is to find which wire is for running lights and which is for signals to flash. if you only have 2 wires at each signal, then skip this step.

set the voltmeter to DC volts (20v range is fine), turn the bike to the on position (don't start it), keep the turn signal switch off and place the positive lead of the voltmeter to one of the 2 remaining wires and the other to the ground wire (you just found out which is ground in the previous step) and see if the voltmeter jumps to at least 11 volts. if it does, then you have just determined which wire is the running lights wire. if it doesn't, then move it to the other wire to see if that makes the voltmeter move.

repeat at the other signals that have a 3 wire system.

good luck.
