Lights don't work

check fuses, if one is not burnt out you have a bad ground somewhere. are the switches for the turn signals and hi-low beams on the same control bar? if so unscrew the two halves of that control and look inside for any evidence of shorting (black residue or melty parts) if there is any, replace that control cluster. hope that helps.

Wire loose

The blue wire is the wire to supply voltage to your "running" lamp filament in the buld. Take your bulb out and look at the back side of it. It should have two round connectors on it. One is for the turn signal and one is for the running light. The "running light" should be on when you start the bike. When you turn the turn signal on on that side, the turn signsl filament should light up along with the running light filament.

With the bike running and headlight on, all four turn signals should lit as "running lights". Earlier models did not have the "running lights' on them. Now, when you turn the turn signals on either side the bulbs should blink much brighter. If you press and hold both the right and left turn signal switches, you're four way flasher signal should come on. If you still can't figure it out, Drop me a line at [email protected] and I will scan a wiring diagram in for you and send it to you. Good Luck Steve

Headlights and tail lights will not come on but the bike will start as well as turn signals and horn works on my 2003 sportster

Has to be a bad connection, pull the headlight out and check the plug (or wires) in and around the headlight.
