My 2007 yamaha v star 650 keeps blowing the fuse that goes to the turn signal brake lights and horn

    When the kickstand is raised, it seems to blow the fuse that powers the turn signals/four way flashers as well as the neutral indicator and gas tank gauge level and horn. Currently has a 20 amp fuse in it. Everything else electrically seems to work - starter, headlights and taillights.

There seem to a 'live' wire (in the turn signal, brake light or horn circuit) touching the frame of the bike and thus the fuse blowing.
You will have to trace out the short-circuit.
You can start wth removing the connections to the turn signals thn fit the fuse and see if it still blows ....like wise remove the wire to the brake light and thn check if the fuse blows, same to the horn.
In short ..you can remove all the wires connections to these and thn fit the fuse and refit the wiring connections one by one ,where the fuse will blow after connecting the wire to say brake light thn the problem is at the brake light wiring ....likewise to the others ...onces you identify the circuit tht has the problem thn it will be easy to trace it and rectify it.
Hope this helps!

Sounds like you have a wire shorting out somewhere. start with the wire harnesses that are around the steering fork areas fist especially the one that comes from your handle bars because that's where a lot of twisting and chaffing start...hope this helps!

NO turn signal or neutral light, no speedometer or horn working. Changed 10 amp fuses but they keep blowing?


10 amp fuse is small a few things that you can do. go to a 15 and turn every thing on snd see if it blows and how long. if it don't blow in 5 mins. your good if it does blow then you have a wire problem. if so. unplug every thing that has to do with that fuse. and plug 1 in at a time UNTIL the fuse blows. good luck.

I have brake light and horn problem


you have a hot short between the brake light or horn wire. It is touching a ground somewhere. Trace out both wires to ground and see if they are not touching somewhere. It may also be a short in the fuse box? May be brake pedal sensor is shorting out. Or the horn has a short to ground.

Yamaha 650 vstar 2009 turn signals,horn,brake light keep shorting out


prprobably best to start with removing seat and fuel tank and doiing an inspection of wiring harness...all good, inspect each light socket for damage....include any added items on the harness.
If all that looks good...try temporarily unplugging horns...on Yamahas the horn is usually electrically "hot" and then runs to horn button where it is grounded.
A defect in the horn can short out and blow signal fuse.

Turn signal fuse keeps blowing


Hi, Mike_meyers69 before diagnosing your blown fuse issue you are going to need a wiring from your service manual a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses. If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with and ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any number reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.
