I have a 2006 Harley street glide and keep blowing fuse for tail light

Short somewhere in the wires from brake switch to tail. Close visul inspection should reveal a cut or bare wire to frame connection. Or possibly problem in the lamp holder.

Brake lights inopreable

Hi Anonymous, if both the front brake lever and the rear brake pedal do not activate your brake light then you either have a bad bulb, or there is a problem with that docking station behind the tail light, or bad connections and or bad wires either from the ignition switch to the brake light switches or from the brake light switches to the tail lite assembly. So grab your test lite and go to: for a wiring diagram and strat tracing wires and connections. Good luck

I have a 2009 Street Glide and I never recieved the recallon the breaks and just crashed my bike on Sept 1, 2013 on the freeway because I had no breaks.

From looking at the Government recall web site, there is no official recall on this issue, but there are consumer complaints.
Yours is about the 3rd or 4th person that I've read about that has an issue with the rear brakes suddenly failing.
Most of what I've read also involves leaking brake fluid from the rear brake light switch, or smoking, from the brake fluid under pressure when the brakes are applied, spraying onto hot engine parts.

To me, it seems Harley has gotten a bad batch of brake light switches.

Im blowing the accesories fuse and tail light when i hit a bump

Hi Djstreetglid, always check fuses and bulbs first for broken filaments. Then check the connection at the rear fender wiring harness, inspect for corroded, broken or loose pins. Use a dab of dielectric grease and repair as necessary. Check your brake relay if you have one , check your brake light switches for continuity, some models rear turn signals were single filament bulbs only, no running light. If all else fails get out your test light and start tracking the power wire from the harness connection.

I need the wiring order at the tail light socket to wire running and stop nlight on a 2009 street bob H-D

I don't have a schematic for a bike this new but usually Harley uses a red wire for the stop light and a green wire for the tail light.

It's easy to figure out. Turn on your ignition switch and depress the rear brake with a test light connected to the red wire. If the test light lights up, that the brake light, if not, try the green wire. One of them should light up when you depress the brake.

Once the wires plug into the plug at the tail light, they both turn to black wires. The turn signal wires are violet (left) and brown (right). Running lights are probably green as well.

This is just a best guess. Harley usually doesn't change much stuff from year to year but electrical wiring is one thing that does change.

Hope this helps. Good Luck.
