If your brake light is staying on all the time, it's probably a broken front brake light switch. You must disassemble the right side handlebar switch housing to replace the switch.

Good Luck

Sorry to say pretty hard to find them online. Harley is pretty vigilant about chasing down ppl that post them illegally. Best bet for harley is to just go buy at harley or online auction site.

Brake light switch


Hi Jake, always check fuses and bulbs first for broken filaments. Then check the connection at the rear fender wiring harness, inspect for corroded, broken or loose pins. Use a dab of dielectric grease and repair as necessary. Check your brake relay if you have one , check your brake light switches for continuity, some models rear turn signals were single filament bulbs only, no running light. If all else fails get out your test light and start tracking the power wire from the harness connection. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck:

Softail brake light stay on


Hi Anonymous, this problem is usually cause by the front brake light switch being out of alignment or the button not retracting all the way keeping your brake light on in a closed circuit, depending on your model year. 1996 and earlier models the right handlebar switch housing had to be tight up against the front brake control housing in order for the front brake light switch button to be fully compressed to stop continuity. In 1997 and later models the button was alot shorter and was more of an alignment issue in the switch housing. Rear brake light switches located in the rear brake line TEE can also fail in the closed circuit condition but extremely rare, usually they fail in an open circuit condition where the brake light is not able to activate.

Turn signals will work some times if motor is not


low voltage can make them stop flashing. If the battery is good, a new flasher can may be needed, A wrong wattage or blown bulb can cause the same problem.

Whyis my break light staying the bike is a 2006


The front brake light switch in located in the throttle switch housing. When you pull the front brake lever, it pivots and allows the switch to make. Sometimes the brake master cylinder and the front switch housings move and cause this problem. Loosen the master cylinder bolts holding it onto the handlebars and make sure it's slid down tight against the throttle switch housing.

If this doesn't solve the problem, you may have an electrical problem that you'll have to trace out and find the problem. You'll need a wiring diagram for this. There are two switches in the system that controls the light. I've already talked about the front switch. The rear brake switch is a pressure switch located somewhere along the metal line that comes out of the rear brake master cylinder. Sometimes these switches go bad but rarely. Having an electical problem on a bike this new is unusual as well. I don't have a wiring diagram for this model. Good Luck.

Tail light


The tail light which stays 'on' , is it the brake light or the normal light. (if it is powerfulthn its brake light & if it's dimmer thn its a normal light).
Remedy:- if it's brighter thn it is probabley the brake light switch which mayhave siezed or needs adjustment.
I have a feeling it is the brake light tht is staying lit all the time.
