You almost certainly have a bad coonnection somewhere, have a look behind the headlight to start with. Really, you need to do some electrical fault finding with a multi tester. Try to pin point exactly when the fuse is blowing - ie when u switch something on, or when you start up..... Some times the tank of these can rub o hole in the wiring loom underneath - check there. There are many electrical `potential` probs with gs`s but they can be rectified. Try the GSRESOURCE site for more assistance.

No horn and no right hand turn signal bulb good,icannot find fuse to the horn ifound signal fuse it is good


Horn also uses a relay . What year , make , model vehicle. The odds of the fuse being the falt are high , Fuse's do blow , but not for no reason . Short's to ground cause fuse's to blow . Which means electrical wiring problems or short's in electrical componets . Do you know what a relay is an how it works ?

You have a short in that circuit, check for loose or bared wires in the headlight or blinkers or disconnect any plug. Leading to those parts one at a time until the fuse stops blowing then trace those wires to the problem

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.

Signal fuse keeps blowing


Just a hunch....if its blowing immediately, your horns are on the signal fuse....Yamaha typically wired these so the horns is hot and the horn button grounds to sound the horn. Unhook connectors and check if there is a short from either terminal to ground....one probe on a terminal, other on bike ground...retest on the other terminal. You should be open (infinity) to ground.
If fuse is fine till turn signals are used....inspect each socket for wiring damage.

Electrical short, No headlight, no horn, no turn signals


may have burnt a wire inside the wiring loom, use multi meter to check each wire continuity, or perhaps jump a wire from + battery to the positive horn wire.
use a fuse on the jump wire in case of short.
If this work then definate break in loom

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


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!

Lost headlight,horn,both turn signals last week after a pretty hard bump in the road.Keeps blowing the top and bottom 15 amp fuses on the left bank of the fuse block


Somewhere you have a dead short, i.e. wire shorted to ground. Only solution is to trace all your wires from the fuse box to the switches, headlight, horn, and turn signals. This will be much easier if you have access to a service manual, but can be done without one if you are patient.

Accessory fuse keeps blowing, headlight not working


I know this sounds aomewhat general, however please give the following some thought:
Check your relays, if you have an aftermarket horn you may have a different relay. To troubleshoot unplug your headlight, unplug your horn, etc.. Turn your ignition switch to accessory only. See if the fuse pops. If it does unplug whatever added accessories you may have still have plugged in. Once you can get the fuse to stop popping, turn the ignition switch to on. Then one at a time plug you accessory, headlight, etc. back in. When you find what pops the fuse, unplug that item, start plugging in the other items, if the fuse has not popped you have potentially isolated the circuit causing the issue. Now check the wiring for loose connections, bad ground, and CHECK the relay if that item has one. Hope this helps,

JP
