    Might try unplugging the horn relay, then try the turn signal relay. You can find the bad one sooner or later, when it stops blowing fuses. By increasing the amperage of the fuse you may find the problem or may burn the wires. If it was my bike, I'd unplug relays & lights first.

My 83 honda shadow has head light tail light and front markers but turn signals dont flash no brake light fan or horn or back markers what can i be they worked 2 weeks ago when i rode it last


It almost has to be a fuse or broken wire to the fuse. Check power to the flasher.
There are places on line to get free Honda Shadow manuals. I have a '96 Shadow.
Hope this helps.

Hope this helps.

Horn doesn't blow wont crank when ignition turned on a 2003 dyna superglide


Harley horns fail. Replace the horn. If this fault has happened at the same time as engine wont crank then problem with wiring. If not then check starter relay (grey one). Also check ignition switch. Are the head lights coming on when turned on? If so the ignition switch is o/k. Connect a voltmeter to horn to check horn circuit. Accessory fuse 15 Amp supplies horn circuit and brake light and turn signal circuits so if these are working fuse o/k. Ignition/start circuit requires system relay and ECM fuse to be o/k. If fuel pump operates when run switch is activated then system relay o/k. Check start relay and circuit to start button.

RIGHT TURN SIGNAL,HORN,HEADLIGHT,TAIL LIGHT WORKS ,BUT WHEN I TURN ON THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL ONLY THE TAILLIGHT BLINKS THEN BLOWS 15 AMP FUSE WHY


Sounds like the wires have been plugged in wrong. You should be able to find schematics online for it. Here is a link to one place that may have what you're looking for.

This is fore a Kawasaki but they should have the one you want or at least the same make, witch would use the same color wires for things.
Also if you check the other end of the vehicle and see what wire go to what you may find the answer there. Good luck StehpehJP

HONDA SHADOW BLOWS FUSE HORN,BLINKERS,NEUTRAL LIGHT OUTT


Hi, Larry before diagnosing your blown fuse issue, check the bottom of your seat, if it's metal and comes in close proximity to the positive battery post you need to take the necessary steps to ensure there is no contact (electrical tape, thick rubber insulation, hammer a dent in the seat bottom etc.) You are going to need a wiring diagram from your service manual, a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses.
If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with an ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any number reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.

Anyone have a wiring diagram for a '85 VT500c? My horn and brake light do not work (tail light does) and turn signals don't blink...........but cycle runs and everything else electrical does w


Hi, Brian all this electronic brain surgery is above my pay grade but if I had to start slicing and dicing I would start with the turn signals 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.

I KEEP BLOWING THE 15 AMP FUSE POWERING THE TAIL LIGHTS AND TURN SIGNALS ON MY 2004 HONDA SHADOW 600, I HAVE REMOVED THE SEAT AND TANK AND CANT FIND IT ITS VERY INTERMENT ONE TIME IT JUST POPS IN SECONDS...


I would disconnect each light, if you can get away with it, and ride around for a while...and see which one is blowing it...is there a way to use a reset-able fuse, so you want have to keep putting in new fuses...just to test it..like the ones on a house power strip, I always take them out when I find one thrown away, most are 15 amp...

84 honda shadow 700 vt lights are unpredictable


There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!

Right turn signal blowing fuse


Fuses are a SAFETY device. Never replace fuses with larger amp ones. Take the bike to an authorized repair shop and get it done right. There could be a short or relay problem that can lead to more extensive problems down the road. Safety devices are put in place to protect you and the system. Like in a home: if you run 14-2w/grd to light fixture the max fuse to use is 15amp fuse. never put a 20 in because the wire can melt at higher amps. Same with your bike. the wire is not rated to handel more than is was designed and fused for.
