1993 Harley Sportster 1200 fuse box location


Hi, Cecil fuse and circuit breaker location are as follows:
SPORTSTER-Underneath the seat or behind the left side panel or inside the headlight bucket.
SOFTAIL-Underneath the seat behind the battery or under the speedometer housing.
DYNA-Behind the left side panel.
TOURING-Under speedometer housing or left and right side panel.
Under the speedometer housing or inside the headlight bucket location is for mechanical circuit breakers only.
The following is an approximate timeline of Circuit Breakers and Fuses.
1965-1990 circuit breakers only.
1990-2000 circuit breakers and fuses.
2000 and up fuses only.

My 1993 1200 sportster did work fine till I had to lay it down quite hard. after laying up for a couple of months I started to put it back together.first of all I got idiot lights but only click on pushing...


If you've got circuit breakers tripping, you've still got a short somewhere. Pay particular attention to either of the handlebar switch housings. There are quite a number of wires running to each side and any one can easily be pinched and cause a short. I'd focus on the right side with the "Run-Stop" switch in it.

Good Luck

I have a 2000 Harley Sportster 1200 Custom. My headlight was not working one day and some friends I was riding with took off seat and changed some fuse, well the headlight worked but I now have no...


sounds like your friends changed your good insterment fuse for your bad headlight fuse. the reason your turn signals won't cancel is because the speedo is not working. get new fuses and replace all the fuses. if this don't fix it let me know and we will look in to it further.

had simular problem on my 2007. Speedo would die after bike was washed . Harley screwed with the bike several times replaced speedo nothing. Turns out to be connector on speedo water was getting into it and corroded it . Not enough grease put on connector when built.
