Not familiar with the Softail Rocker, but the 2009 Baggers have a "Turn Signal Security Module" (TSSM) as one unit.

Check to see if the brake light switch under the dash at the brake pedal is bad before you go too much further.

No turn signals, 1 driver brake light bad, ABS light on. 2002/2003 CVPI

Sounds like you have 'ground' issues. Apply the brakes using a broom stick or more apropriate tool so that the brake lights are activated. Then go to the brake light that is not bright enough. using a test-light with a sharp pointed probe, poke the ground wire close to the bulb (usually a black wire) make sure the test light is attached to a grounded bolt. if the brake light gets brighter with ground added, you need a new ground wire. Splice it in to the existing wire & attach it to a bolt. Lights should work better with proper ground. (each bulb has a positive post & neg. post, don't add ground to the side with power coming through it from Battery (+)(red light on test light) - probe wires FIRST with test light to find (+) POS. Hot wire, and leave that one alone.

My ABS/Brake light in dashboard is on .

I didn't have that issue,but I had a 1992 dakota with
rear abs only & I just unplugged the module under the dash

I'm all for diagnosing everything & having it factory stock & working

But you don't need abs on a 4x4 that old & the rear hydraulic
abs unit ,gets so rusty that it is sad.

If you ever replace rusted brake tubing, remove it

They don't check that in inspection

Brake light does not work when brake is engauged

You have two brake light switches, one for the rear brake and one for the front brake. If neither switch turns the brake light on, the first thing to check is the bulb. If the bulb is good, check the socket and the wiring to it.

If all that is good, find the rear brake master cylinder. Follow the metal tube coming out of it going to the rear brake. Underneath the bike, there is a pressure switch that turns on the rear brake light. Check to make sure the wires are connected and that one set of wires is "hot" when the ignition switch is in the "ON" position. If so, the switch is probably bad. Replace the switch. I have seen them check good with a meter but still not turn on the brake light. Work with the rear brake light switch first as it's the easiest and least expensive to fix. When you get that working, repost and I'll take you through replacing the front brake light switch. It's quite a bit more difficult to replace than the rear switch. I'm sure that procedure is in the archives as well because I've posted it a number of times.

Good Luck
