I dont't have a Harley but I wired mine by getting an extra end for my batterie tender, I just plug it in there since I remove it from the bike wherever I leave the bike. Works great and I get full power to the gps without robbing anything else.

How do I change the bulb in my spa

Remove front wood skirt panel. Follow the 2 wires - black & a white, Reach into the light area. Grab hold of the light bulb holder/retainer, which is called a reflector, and twist it off the light niche/lens. It's a 'dry' niche. Some very old spas had a wet niche and you need to access that from the inside of spa. But if you have that style, post back with new thread.
once out, twist the pigtail 1/4 turn to remove from reflector, and the bulb just pulls out of the pigtail socket. and new pushes/snaps back into place.

1 brake light is out and when I put new bulb it still does not work. It is a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 pick up truck. How do I locate the fuse box to see if that could be the problem? Thanks for any help

Sounds like the socket could be bad, when one bulb does not work. Check for corrosioin on contacts. The contacts should be shiny, dry, and clean except for bulb grease, if so equipped.

Sometimes, I cut off the socket and splice a new socket that has pigtails on it. That's a common problem on all kinds of cars.

Lights---low beams are blowing out, and often I have no low beams, but can get the high beams. Fog lights work. Have had two new bulbs in four weeks.

You may have defective bulb sockets that may have overheated and are now deformed or corroded. Replacement socket pigtails are available at auto centers or parts store. Recommend getting ceramic sockets, these will not deform.

Front turn signal does not blink when turned on. bulb lights when lights are turned on.

Have you checked the rear turn signal on the same side? Usually when one (1) turn signal stops blinking another bulb on the same side has failed. It can be rear or side lights but most of the time it is the rear light on the same side that has failed so the front light will not blink.

Also I would check to see if there was 12V when the turn signal is selected and a ground on the bulb socket. (signal off)

Does the bulb have one or 2 contacts on the base of the bulb besides the barell? If it is a 2 contact bulb (1157) then there are separate circuits for the turn and parkling lights. Follow the socket wires back to the connector and check to see if there is corrosion in the socket or the pigtail connector. All of the terminals socket and pigtail connector should be clean. Also check for signs of any breakdown in the wires especially around terminal ends.

Your dealing with a 2 wire series circuit... power and ground. It takes both to make the bulb light.

Check the ground for Zero (0) Ohms and power for 12V. One of them has to be missing and you will need to find out where the break is in the circuit.

Often the ground is provided by the turn signal selector but if the selector is bad all lights on the same side would not work. If the rear light works and the front light does not then your problem is probably very near the front light.

1. Dirty socket terminal
2. Poor pigtail connector connections
3. Broken chassis ground or power wire

Thanks for using FixYa.

Make sure you wired the correct wires to the new socket/pigtail. Use a multimeter or test light and check for power/ground at the pigtail. If you don't have anything, follow the wires back until you have a known good ground/power and look for obvious breaks between the pigtail and good wire.

I have had the same problem on both Headlights at different times on my 2002 Envoy. I had to replace bulb sockets. Sockets with pigtail can be purchased at most auto parts stores. Make sure to put conductive lube on terminals when reinstalling.

1998 Pontiac Sunfire backup lamp (reverse lights) are not working. Replaced bulbs. Worked once then quit. Cleaned out bulb receptacles. One bulb worked but the other did not . Bought another set of bulbs....

I see this a lot at the autoparts store I work at....

Go to your local parts store and inquire about a backup light switch. Be specific though because there is also a backup/neutral safety switch (for manual vehichles) this is not the part you want.

In most cases you will have power at the pigtail but when put in reverse the switch will not function properly and actually cut power to the lights. I offer no garanty that this will solve your problem, it is just an issue I see often and is typically the solution.

FYI: I sell 100 bulbs a day and can tell you that in a lot of cases (GM cars especially) depending on which factory your car came out of they could have used different pigtails (sockets) which require different bulbs, try one of each bulb number in the original socket and see which one fits, that one will be correct (there should also be print at the bottom of the old bulb with the correct part number on it (ignore any letters they dont mean anything).

Good luck, Hope I was of some help.
