I dont know. but since its an 86 i'll take a guess that your horn is probably bad...check it with a voltmeter..hook up the red +lead to any of the two wires going to the horn then ground the other lead to a good bare frame or bolt, press the horn'll see 12v when you press the button if that didn't work try the other wire...if you still dont see 12v then the horn is probably good and you have a broken wire or a bad fuse, sorry i dont know the location...but it should be with all the others like all the other bikes i"ve could just try replacing all the fuses that you see with new ones and then see if it works.

Indicators not working

Hi, Anonymous before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

No fuel injection power no tach power no head light no start

Check the main relay under the seat. Check your fuses and if those are good, you probably have a bad ground or the ECM is toast.

Think I blew a fuse when I was jump starting my battery. Speedometer, horn & turn signals dont work. Replaced the battery but that didn't resolve the problem. Is there a fuse box anywhere? I checked...

Hi Tucsonjohn, on a Dyna all fuses, circuit breakers, relays, and modules will be behind the left side panel cover secured by grommets, four nuts or screws. On later models the electrical panel bracket cover secured by four nuts or screws must also be removed to gain access to electrical components. Good luck and have nice day.

My 1992 yamaha virago turn signels and horn stoped working, I need to know what where and how to fix this, is it a fuse? If so where are the fuses? I'm on the road and I need to figure it out, thank u

hows it goin, check the fuse box, it is under the seat. if no fuses are blown, check the horn and flasher unit/Flasher relay connections. I think you have to separate problems.

The speedometer and tach lights not working....

Check the fuses. They are under the cover right below the gauges. Remove the screws and lift the cover off. Check the fuses with a test light or volt meter, dont trust your eyes to detect an open fuse.

Most Yamaha models have 2 bolts holding the seat on, usually located between the top shock mounts and the side covers. You should be able to find them without too much trouble, but remember- they are metric. Hope this helps.
