    Hi, many thanks Your quick reply. I just bought the bike and to be honest i did not remember if both front signallights where on. If I understand You right, You mean that the lights are designed to be always on as soon as the ignition is on.

    I,m used to that signallights should only be lit when it is activated and consequently I thought it was a ground failure................

Check to see if your hazard lights switch is stuck or on ?? I had the problem once when i fell with my ninja, the switch went in and was stuck, I had to remove the switch by cutting the wires off it and then non my signals work so i wound up replacing the switch.. check yours by disconnecting the switch.

Did this just start or what my own bike does this but it is because they double as running lights bikes sit up like this runs the lights any time engine is started and can not be cut off if this is the case and you just do not want them to come on except when turning you can go to bulb socket at each signal and clip the wire with constant current leaving the ground wire intact and signal wire it should be using a twin element bulb hence the constant then flash

That usually indicates that you have a turn signal bulb that is blown. Check your turn signals in front and back to see if you have a bad bulb somewhere.

Jeep - right turnsignal won't flash


Probably a bad ground on your front right signal, or a bad bulb. Try switching the right with the left, and see if the problem stays in the same place, or goes with the bulb.
