Hi Bryant, Get out a test lite and start checking for power to speedo by connecting test lite to ground then ckeck for proper ground from speedo by connecting test lite to a power source. also check all wire connectors where the pins attach to the wire and where the pins connect in the plastic socket housings Good luck

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: On my Gauge Cluster my

I assume the headlight works for this answer. Let's separate the 2 issues to see where the the problem could be. First check the fuse box( under the seat or a side cover). Did you check the bulbs on the rear lights? If they are bad, replace them & recheck those. Being that the other gauge lights work, there are a few bulbs in the gauge assembly. You need to take apart the assembly part way to replace those. Those bulbs get used alot so them burning out is a possibility. If all that is ok, Check the wiring coming from the battery area for corossion & breakage,common on bikes.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 Honda shadow Aero 750. Bike starts

It could be the headlight bulb, the headlight switch or a worn/broken wire to the headlight. I would take out the headlight bulb and see if you can see a break in the filament. You could also use a jumper wire and test it with a 12 volt battery. If the headlight checks out ok, I would take a 12 volt tester and see if you have voltage at the headlight plug.

Good Luck

2005 shadow aero 750 speedometer,odometer,trip,neutral light not working. fuse good


Hi, Barbara if some or all of your instrument cluster goes dark/blank immediately upon startup or a few minutes later riding down the road the usual suspects are:
1. Blown instrument fuse.
2. A bad ground in the instrument circuit.
3. Faulty wiring before or after the fuse.
4. Faulty wiring or connector between the fuse and the instrument cluster.

01 pt cruiser right high beam light won't work.


In the diagram for headlamps, the top wire is voltage, the bottom wire is ground. You can use a test light to check voltage and ground. To test ground, one end of test light touches battery voltage the other end touches ground wire terminal, if the lite comes on, the ground is good enough to lite the test light. You know how to check voltage with test light, correct?

I have a 1995 Honda shadow 1100 classic. Receiently the blinkers stopped working. I noticed the last couple times the bike got wet, the turn signal would not blink the lights. When i hit the turn...


Hi, Ac_dunker50 before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.
