First, if the bike is still under warranty, I'd take it back to the dealer. But, you can try loosening the bolts that hold the front brake master cylinder onto the handlebars and then slide it as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If this doesn't put the light out, you may have a bad switch. It will have to be soldered in.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 2004 FLHRI ROAD KING BRAKE LIGHT IS STUCK ON.

Hello,
There is 2 switches on your bike (like most motorcycles) and one of them is stuck on, broken, or the linkage to it is damaged!

The Front switch is actually part of the master cylinder /lever, and the rear switch is actuated when the right side brake pedal is depressed.

You will need to take a multimeter and check them both for a short with no power on using an ohmmeter. Another way is to disconnect the plug going to the switches & check the brake lite to see if it goes off & if it does that particular switch is in trouble and may need to be replaced.

hand break switch was broken (inside the wire housing) not allowing the hand break lever to deactive, therefore causing the brake system to stay on.

Typically Harley uses a red and a green wire on their tail light assemblies. The red wire is usually the brake light, green being the tail light.

Using a test light, turn the switch on, push the probe into the red wire, and step on the rear brake pedal. If the test light illuminates when you step on the brake pedal, you've got the right wire for the brake light. The green wire should be "hot" whenever the ignition switch is "on" and the headlight is on.

SOURCE: 2001 Road King Classic. Brake light stays on.

you may need to check the switch that the lever presses to...it has a small wiring connection to it and you cannot miss it.Now I assume that you mean you have to push the lever back then the light goes off...If this is the case then you caliper or braking needs to be looked as the spring mechanism that brings the lever back into rest position is not working..

SOURCE: Rear brake light not workiing

There are two brake light switches. One is in the right handlebar switch housing. This is front brake light switch and is a simple push button type switch actuated by the front brake lever.

The other switch is a pressure switch and it is located in a Tee usually somewhere under the bike near the rear of the transmission. Follow the metal tube coming out of the rear of the master cylinder. It will go back towards the rear brake. Somewhere in that line there will be a tee with the pressure switch in it. If you jumper across this switch, the brake light should work. If it does work when you do this but not work when you depress the rear brake signal, replace the rear brake light switch.

Good luck
Steve

I have a 2005 Harley Road King Custom. With ignition switch on, I have horn, brake lights and instrument light. I don't hear fuel pump, turn signals don't work; headlight doesn't work and


Hi Mark, I would start by checking fuses first located behind the left side panel. Then check for continuity at your system/fuel pump relay also in that same general area, check the connection at the turn signal module and for continuity at the ignition switch and your high/low beam switch. This is assuming of course that your security alarm has been disabled. for more information on your question please visit the websites below and good luck:

If neither the front brake nor the rear brake will make the light come on, I would suspect the bulb if the fuses are not blown.

Want to wire Harley RK for trailer


The wiring for your road king tail/turn lights is: Brown - right turn, Violet/black - left turn, Blue - tail light, Red/yellow - brake, Black - ground to all lights. You should be able to splice into the wiring harness under the seat where the rear lighting plug is located.

I have a 2003 road king that the break lights don't work when I press the breaks either on the break pedal or on the handle bars.


Check your brake selenoid, which should have a electric connection. This connection sends a signal to the brake light selenoid that the brakes are being applied there by turning the brakes lights on.
