Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Road King Classic. My running lights ( the 2 lights on either side of the headlight) are not on. The headlamp works and the fuse for the headlamp is ok. What fuse runs these lamps? Ken in Atlanta, GA.

    I have the same issue. Thus far I have check the fuse and tested the bulbs in each of the side lights- they test good. When I test the power to the bulb it\'s not there. The headlight works fine. So with this it\'s something between the light and the switch or the fuse block and the switch. It\'s a pain to dig into the switch assembly and I don\'t know where to start to try and resolve this. This has had to happen before.....who here has some sound advise?

One fuse runs all your lights. Have you checked the bulbs? If they are set up for turn signals and running lights, they will have two filaments, one for the running lights and one for the turn signals. I'm pretty sure your running lights and turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. There is the chance that someone disconnected them. The older bikes didn't have running lights on them and that's how you could tell a Harley from the rice burners, not running lights. Just the headlight.

Good Luck

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:

Hi Anonymous, you need to get out your test light and find the short and start by making sure the battery has 12 volts or more and clean tight connections especially the ground cable at both ends. If your issues involves lights always check the bulbs for broken filiments and fuses first. Then start at the socket and work your way towards the handlebar switches checking each wiring harness connector for corroded, broken or loose pins and remember dielectric grease is your friend. Check the switches for continuity and work your way towards the ignition switch and check it for continuity. Keep working your way to the fuses and circuit breaker and finally the battery.

2008 HD Road King Classic: Running lights work, but brake/blinker lights do not.

Do you have a security system on this bike? If so, has the bike been hit or laid down? If not---

Check fuses and circuit breakers to ensure they are good.

Can you bypass the axillary light and just have the main headlamp

Sure you can if you don't mind doing a few wiring changes. By "axillary light", I'm assuming you are talking about a light bar on the front of the bike with spot lights on either side. Usually most guys have these lights wired so that they can turn the on and off independently of the headlight and the ignition switch for that matter. But, I guess some people want to run them all the time so they wire them directly to the headlight wiring. I don't have a schematic on that bike so you'll just have to trace the wires out.

Good Luck

Are you getting 12v to the headlamp fuse? If so, are you getting 12v to the hi-low beam selector? If so, are you getting 12v to the headlamp socket? If yes to all of those questions you have a bad ground somewhere in the circuit. Turn on the key. Use your voltmeter to check continuity from the ground side of the circuit (the three points you just tested the voltage on) to the frame of the bike. If your headlight comes on, you have found the part of the circuit that does not have a good ground. Check that part of the circuit for a broken or loose connection.
