If solinoid is proper one.check all coloured connecters are correct also check for powderd deposites in the sockets where the globes are fitted into as that makes a bad earth.also check in headlight where all connecters are usely placed for the handle bar switch.also hold globes to light and look at the elements in the glass.i myself have bought new ones witch damaged due to miss handling by rough handlers behind the counter.i have had bikes that where harness exits h/bar switch have been squashed as well.generally the indicater loom is seperate to main system but all taped together.with a diagram to follow you can sperate from the main taped harnness.your beeper should be in chrome dome on left like th air box.the indicater system is simple one.goodluck

Turn signals not working

Suspect the multi-function switch. (turnsignal) these fail a lot.

98 chevy lumina Rear window break light works, but rear break lights don't, also right turn don't work?

I can almost 100% guaranty the turn signal switch is the problem. Power for the brake lights starts at the brake switch. power then splits from there and the third brake light gets power directly from the brake switch. Since the turn signal and the brake lights are on the same bulb power for the brake lights is routed through the turn signal switch. the switch depending on what position it is in will allow brake power or turn signal power to there respective left or right brake/turn bulbs.

If you hold your foot on the brake pedal and wiggle the turn signal and or play with the hazard switch the brake lights will almost always intermittently start to work. this will confirm a bad turn signal switch which is pretty common on GM vehicle with this style setup.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

1995 Ford f250 brake lights don't work ad neither do the hazard flashers. I replaced the flasher node and the turn signals began to work but still no brake lights.

You may have a bad signal switch..Your brake lights run through the signal switch..Try hitting the brakes and move the switch around and see if your brake lights come on intermittently..

Brake lights won't work.... replaced fuse it's fine, top light on hatch works, but right and left don't

need to check the multi-function switch. the brake light signal goes through the turn signal switch on the steering column. the brake lights come on if the turn signal is not being operated. the circuit for the brake light can loose contact in the switch.

1998 Lincoln Town Car: No turn signals, 4 way flash, brake lights

If only your brake light in middle of rear window works then your other bulbs are bad. If brake lights all work in the back than bulbs are good. If you put turn signal on right or left and the bulbs light in front and back then you need to change multifunction light control box under dash. My understanding is it cost $600 new. So I would try used.

it sounds like the selinoid went bad or stuck this pulls the plunger down to release the handle, you might be able to take out the key pad and determine the 2 wires that go to selinoid jumper them out with a nine volt battery good luck. p.s. this could ruin your safe, be carefull. bigds keys

Turn signals not working --- 2001 Cherokee Limited

Check the flasher under the dash to the left of the steering column. It's got about 8 or 10 wires plugged into it.
