christopher :

Hello how are you

christopher :

Any mods, i.e. lightbar, aftermarket turn signals

Customer:

yes both front llightbar and rear blinker llights in beetle bag.

christopher :

When the lights did work, did they blink at a normal pace

Customer:

yes.. I took a long road trip this last weekend and everything worked great. After I unpacked bike I noticed blinkers not working. First I checked the fuse it was blown. I replaced it then checked my back lights. Both wires in both lights were pulled from the lights they are round plugin kind. I put those back in. nothing . The front blinker lights come on with running lights but go out when I swithch the turn signal on . The rear lights do not come on at all but they may have only come on with blinker Im not surel.

christopher :

How did the rear become unplugged? Straps?

Customer:

Probably over stuffed beetle bags. wires are exposed in bag. They may have come unplugged on trip home not sure

Customer:

The fuse has not blown again yet. Maybe I ruined the light bulbs?

christopher :

If you found the fuse blown and after replacing, it does not work and the lights do not blink, you have a fried flasher. OR grounded wires, but that would blow the fuse again

christopher :

Check the bulbs first but if they are not on they will not blow

Customer:

A fried flasher is that the front flashing lights

Customer:

Replacing both front flashing lights would fix a fried flasher?

christopher :

The relay for all the signals is called a flasher. It is a small black box, i believe under the seat on your model

Customer:

Ok I'll look for that does it remove like a fuse

christopher :

It just unplugs, give me a moment to find a pic for you

christopher :

It is part number 11, it is either under the seat or the left side cover, try the cover first
