Hi,,remove the tape and check the connections,,when you say "everthing went dead i assume you mean all lights ect,,,check your fuse box,,,more than likely the indicator wiring has shorted and blown a fuse.

I'm using Windows 7 and was getting the 9114/9119 "minor error" when trying to install the language files. I copied my files to a flash drive, tried adding exceptions to my AV software (Microsoft Security Essentials), both to process and extension, no go. Then I tried setting the program to run in Compatibility Mode, and lo and behold it worked.
Steps: right-click on the file, click Properties, then the Compatibility tab, and check the box to run in Compatibility Mode.
Any idea's ? Yes , learn how these system's work ! Looking at wiring diagram's to see what all is involved in the electrical circuit's for the brake & turn signal lamps . Plus learning how to test electrical circuit's with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter . Electric Testing Techniques You Need to Know
Testing is how to find this problem , not going by someone guessing who has not even looked at the vehicle ! Free wiring diagram's here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click on stop lamp or turn signals . Take your DVOM an at the rear right stop lamp bulb test for B+ voltage , check ground side . See which side of the circuit has the problem . Mastering Voltage Drop Testing with Pete Meier and Jerry Truglia
Hi, Daniel before testing any electrical component in the Turn Signal Light Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries, also 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 your OEM lights with one or all 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 all four turn signals flash at the same time like hazard lights even though you only pressed one turn signal button then you have a LED light in the circuit and need a load equalizer that can be purchased from any motorcycle parts supplier.
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.

No Turn Signal Operation (blinker)The turn signal lights in your car are a basic electrical system that controls the front and rear blinker lights to alert the intended direction of the vehicle. We have listed some of the most common problems and repair troubleshooting tips below: Troubleshooting Procedure To start troubleshooting this problem:
Turn the key to the on position (do not start engine)
Inspect the system fuse located in the fuse panel and replace if needed. If you cannot find the location of the blinker fuse consult your owner's manual or an online repair manual
When a blinker flasher fails it can cause blinker lights to say on, not blink, or not go on at all. To test the blinker system flasher, remove the flasher unit and insert a jumper wire between the two terminals. If blinker stays on in both directions without blinking, replace the flasher. If you cannot find the location of the blinker flasher consult your owners manual or an online repair manual.
Make sure bulb replaced is the required 2 way or 1 way. If you're sure you put in the right bulb type (1 way or 2 way) 6 or 12 volt.. bulb model marked on side for replacement (Check carefully). Assuming its the right bulb type and still blinks fast, you will have to replace the socket. Sockets do get corroded and worn. Disconnect the battery, cut positive then cut negative. Wire up new socket same way using wire connectors. Tape up connections after.
Should then work.
Make sure before you do this you have the right bulbs in all sockets (front and rear) and that all lights work 1st. One failing light front rear same side can cause this problem.
Go to a scapper to get a socket.. just cut it off a wreck... take a couple of them. There cheap.
Remote control problem: your going to laugh at this but this was an easy fix, after my husband told me that there was something wrong with it, I tried to use the remote and he was right, it wasn't working. I changed the batteries that evening and sure enough it still wasn't working. The next day I had a closer look and thought that it wasn't right that a new t.v. remote wouldn't work, and lo and behold the problem? My housekeeper put a picture right in front of the electric eye of the t.v.! Guess what, it works quite fine again, thank-you for your time, and I am glad that it wasn't anything major. Peggy
