    My 1993 Sportster 1200 has brake light, and left turn signal but no right front or rear turn signal. I thought there was something wrong with the factory front turn signal nope not it. What else could it be or where to start looking?

SOURCE: 82 harley sportster brake light

try starting with the bulb. brake light bulbs are dual fillament, meaning you have 2 bulbs in one basicly. if your brake side has blown then the tail light could still work. Or try checking the brake light switches, one on front brake and one on rear brake pedal. to test switches disconect wires and join them together with small bit of wire or paper clip. this will make the light come on meaning you have a bum switch.
if you have only been using the rear brake, that has an adjustable switch, may need to mess with it

SOURCE: Speedo, turn signals, brake lights, horn stopped working. All else is fine.

Gap your plugs to 38 thou. Check all your bulbs (one burned out will affect the rest) Take a look at all your fuses and make sure they are all ok. Otherwise you are probably looking at a wiring short which will require trouble shooting of the elctrical system. Buy your self a service manual for your bike, this will help you a lot.

SOURCE: 1974 Harley Davidson SPORTSTER TURN SIGNAL WIRING

I can help you with the wiring diagram but it will be the complete diagram. I have never seen just a turn signal only type wiring diagram. But, there's nothing to a '74 model Ironhead turn signal system.

All the wires for the system were gray but had these little "colored rubber bands" on the ends of the wires near the signal lights. The violet bands were for the left side and the brown bands were for the right side turn signals

Now, I cannot send the wiring diagram through this forum as it will not allow for an attachment. If you will contact me directly, I'll send you a wiring diagram as a jpeg attachment via e-mail. My address is wd4ity@bellsouth.net.

Good luck
Steve

No Turn Signal front Back. no running lights back. Every thing else fine Horn brake tail lights


Hi Scott, is your speedometer functioning normally? The reason I ask is because the two are connected for proper function. Check the connection to your Turn Signal Module located behind the left side panel, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets, if everything looks ok, replace the turn signal module. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below, and for specific information or questions, please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com. Good luck and have a nice day.

No tail lights on my 2008 ford escape. driver rear blinker wasn't working. replaced bulb, but when i turn on the blinker both blinkers are blinking...front and back...


Not sure I follow your story.
The front and rear turn signal should blink on one side. If the tail lamps are not working, it could be a fuse or a problem with the wiring. And the tail lamps are on the same circuit as the front parking lamps.
