1993 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic motorcycle (FLSTC). If I push either turn signal buttons, signal lights light up and stay on, but will not blink. They blink only if you push turn signal buttons off and on repeatedly. Yet, my hazzard lights work correctly and blink automatically until you turn them off. Do I need to replace my turn signal microproccessor module or do I need a load equalizer or something eles?

DeJevu! I thought I answered this already. Anyway, I'll do it again. The first thing I'd try is putting new bulbs in the turn signal lights. Use the proper bulb called for in the books. This is a pretty inexpensive test.

Next, you didn't say whether or not it was both sides or just one side that was not blinking. The turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. I'd try to find someone that had a known good unit that would allow me to try the unit to see if that fixed the problem. I say this because the units are expensive. The last one I replaced costs about $150.

Oh yeah, on the Softail, I think the "tilt switch" located in the speedometer is involved in cancelling the turn signals as well. If the switch is stuck in the closed position, it may be cancelling the turn signal as soon as you set it. The switch is not in the circuit for the four way flashers. You'd have to look at a schematic to tell for certain. Sorry, I don't have one for a Softail.

Have you looked under the seat? That's about the only place on a Softail to put a fuse box. I'm not familiar with this late model.

1993 Heritage Softail Classic motorcycle. Front


First, I'd try replacing the bulbs in both the front and rear turn signals. See what happens, that's pretty inexpensive to try.

The turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. You didn't mention if the problem was on just one side or if it was on both sides of the bike. I'd try to find someone that had a known good unit that would allow me to try it. The reason, they're expensive. The last one I installed cost nearly $150.
