My turn signals sometimes will quit working then I have to hit the hazard lights button leave it on and then turn my turn signals on then they work what causes this to happen


When the turn signals quit working pull up , down , front to back an back to front on the turn signal switch handle . Do they work when doing this ? Pontiac had bad switch . The power for the turn signals goes through the flasher / hazard module . Could be the switch or the module.
The HAZARD LPS fuse in the left hand instrument panel (LH IP) junction block supplies battery positive voltage to the flasher module, which is part of the hazard switch assembly. The TURN LPS fuse in the LH IP junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the flasher module. The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in the ON position. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, current flow is from the flasher module's output to the turn signal switch assembly. The flasher module then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, all the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.

Headlight problem with my 2000 Corvette. Sometimes when I start the car both headlights pop up and turn on and the switch will not turn them off. I have to turn the engine off and turn the light swith on...


Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits ?
When the headlamp switch is turned to the HEAD position, battery voltage is applied to the headlamp opening door actuator control module through CKT 103. The LH head lamp door opens when battery voltage is applied to the LH headlamp opening door assembly through CKT 576 and ground is applied to CKT 577. The RH headlamp door opens when battery voltage is applied to the RH headlamp opening door assembly through CKT 578 and ground is applied to CKT 579. When the headlamp switch is moved to the OFF position, battery voltage is applied to the headlamp opening door actuator control module through CKT 306. The LH headlamp door closes when battery voltage is applied to the LH headlamp opening door assembly through CKT 577 and ground is applied to CKT 576. The RH headlamp door closes when battery voltage is applied to the RH headlamp opening door assembly through CKT 579 and ground is applied to CKT 578. Battery voltage is constantly applied to the headlamp opening door actuator control module from the HDLP MOT L MiniFuse® #4 (CKT 2940) and from the HDLP MOT R, MiniFuse #3 (CKT 3040). The headlamp opening door actuator control module is grounded by CKT 150 through Splice Pack #100 to G102.

Throttle not snapping back to idle position on 1998 Harley road king classic. I have lube both cables and adjusted them, still won't snap back. Thanks for your help.


You need to take the entire throttle control assembly off the handlebars and disconnect the cables from the carburetor. Check each cable for free movement. If you have a frayed cable, you will never get it to work correctly so check the cables. Now when you go to put the assembly back together make sure you put some thin grease on the handlebar and inside the throttle sleeve before you slide it up on the handlebar. Put white lithium grease in the area where the cables connect to the throttle sleeve the bolt the two halves of the switch housing together. Slide the switch and throttle assembly all the way up on the handlebars and then back it off about an 1/8" or so. This insures that the handlebar is not rubbing on the inside of the end of the throttle grip.

Good Luck

The head light is supposed to come on when ignition is on. This now only happens intermittently, sometimes does'nt come on at all, with no other way to operate this.


The starter button on the handlebar is a two position switch. It both turns off the head light and engages the starter solenoid. If it is dirty or broken often you will have problems with the head light staying on or of course the solenoid not engaging. Try taking apart and cleaning the switch. If that does not work you may have to replace the switch assembly.

I have a 2006 electra glaide police bike ...how do i install a new throttle cable


First remove the air filter cover, the air filter element, and the air filter backing plate so you can get to the carb end of the cables.

Then, adjust the cables so that you have as much slack as you can get in them.

Loosen the two bolts that hold the front brake master cylinder on and slide it towards the center of the handlebars. Take the two bolts out of the right handlebar switch half. Separate the switch halves carefully as there are wires in there. Work the cable out of the throttle sleeve, take the ferrel off the end, and pull the cable out of the lower switch housing. Sometimes this can be aggravating but spray some penetrating oil in there and keep working it. Once out, disconnect the cable at the carb end.

Reassembly is basically the reverse of the dis-assembly. When putting the switch housing back together, don't pinch any wires and don't slide the throttle assembly all the way up on the bars. Once you have the throttle assembly bolted together and the master cylinder repositioned against the front face of the switch housing, adjust the throttle cables. Not to tight, a bit of slack in each cable. The throttle should "snap" back when you release the throttle. If not, work with it until it does. Failure to properly adjust and insure proper throttle operation can cause the lose of control of the vehicle which could result in serious injury or death to the rider.

Good luck

My tail lights stay on, why


Try this, Loosen the two bolts that holds the front master cylinder onto the handlebars. Slide the master cylinder as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If that doesn't extinguish the light, your front brake light switch is probably broken.

To change the switch, you'll have to open the right handlebar switch housing by removeing the two bolts that holds it together, take the throttle and idle cables loose and get the lower housing loose from the handlebar. The switch is held into the inner face of the housing by a single screw. Take the switch loose and desolder the two wires leading to it. Replace the old switch with a new one and solder the original wires to the new switch. Reassemble the throttle assembly and the switch housing. Check the throttle for proper operation. Make sure the throttle "snaps" shut when you release the throttle grip. Improper assembly or adjustment of the throttle cables can cause the loss of control of the motorcycle resulting in serious injury or death.

Good Luck

2006 fxdwg break light stays on whether breaks are in use or not happen whether bike is running or not. Dont know what the problem is all other lights function correctly


Ok the problem is probably in the front brake light switch. Loosen the bolts that hold the front master cylinder on the handlebars and slide the assembly as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If this does not put the light out, then your front brake light switch is probably defective and needs replacing.

Good Luck

Bike wont start from hand controls and headlight wont turn on the bike will run but to start it i have to pop start it


If the battery is in good shape and fully charged - and the headlight fuse is not blown, then I suspect that the starter button is at fault. The starter button does two things when you press it: engages the electrical circuit that causes the starter relay to trip, and, at the same time, cuts power to the headlight.

It could be that the contacts inside the handlebar mounted starter button are dirty. You can try spraying some electrical contact cleaner in there - but you are likely going to have to replace the whole right side handlebar switch assembly.

Won't start


Make sure the work bowl handle is locked in place so that it is facing the front of the processor (same side as the on and off switches).

Make sure the feed tube of the lid is facing toward the back of the processor and that the plastic or metal rod of the pusher sleeve is facing the back of the processor.

Note: this assembly only applies to the Cuisinart DFP-14 series - every Cuisinart has a slightly different assembly for it to turn on.
