Sounds like you may have a wiring problem in the right handlebar switch assembly. The front brake light switch is in that housing as well. It could be a problem with the wire bundle running to the main wiring harness from that right side as well. Check for abrasions on the wires.

If you go into the handlebar switch housing, loosen the throttle cables up so you can remove the throttle sleeve. This will enable you to have greater access to the switches. If you have ot replace the switches, the wires usually have to be resoldered.

Good Luck

My turn signals and brake lights not working


Hi, Elliot 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.
Before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

I changed front signal n now the signals all still work but on the back the signals dont stay lit up they only blink when the signals r on but the brake light works fine on both sides


Traditionally, almost all of the modern produced motorcycles are set up this way. The front 2 lights stay lit, while the back 2 stay off while not activated. The only concern is, the brake light is activated by either switch, and the tail light is full time on. Some state laws in the US demand that your headlight remain on. You're good!

Brake lights stay on


Ok, the brake light is turned on when the brake lever is pulled. The switch is actually located in the right switch housing along with the right turn signal switch, starter switch, and throttle. It's simple button switch. When the lever is pulled, it pivots on the pivot pin and small tang on the bottom side to the lever swings FORWARD releasing the swith turning on the light. When you let go the tang swing backwards depressing the button turning off the light.

Loosen the bolts that hold your front brake master cylinder to the handlebar and slide the master cylinder back towards the switch houslng as far as you can. They should be touching. If the light still won't turn off, you'll have to take the right hand switch housing apart and replace the small switch.

Good Luck
Steve

Ok. First of all, chk all the bulbs. Well at least the four parking lamps. The ones that are supposed to flash. One or two are burnd out. It happens.

The brake light and the turn signal are the same bulb. Most of the time if the bulb on the dash stays on it is because a bulb is blown and thats the way it tells you.

1985 chevy s-10 rear blinkers dont work and no brake lights


First check all the fuses and make sure that they are good. The brake light wiring goes from the switch, through the turn signal switch, then to the brake lights. This is done so that when the turn signal is on and the brake light is on at the same time, the bulb will stay on steady on one side (away from the side you are signaling to) and the other side will flash.
If all the fuses are good, you have a bad turn signal switch. This requires a special tool (available at most parts stores or from the local Snap On man) to access the switch AFTER you remove the steering wheel.

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.
