Steve I checked the fuse it is fine I check the second breaker it is fine and there is a Jell-O relay on the side of this Harley-Davidson 1200 mL up everything seems to be OK and they still don't have a headlights nor 30 signals or taillights
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I put a hot wire to the taillights wire in the headlights and taillights come on no problem but without the hot wire there's no power to him to headlights or taillights
Expert:  Steve replied 3 months ago.

what is a "jell-o" relay?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The yellow rekeying by the fuse is the one that controls the starter. The bike will start at any time. But no head lights or, tail lights. No turn signals ither. But lights on Tacom. And speedometer wil com on when turning ign. Switch on.
Expert:  Steve replied 3 months ago.

I don't do phone calls.

the headlight and tailight comes from the LIGHTS fuse.

if the fuse is good, check for 12v in he fuse socket.

if it is not there, check the wiring from the ignition switch to the fuse socket.

if the wiring is good, the ignition switch is bad. it's a common problem on that model. people tend to have things hanging on the key ring and all the vibration jiggles the ignition switch to pieces.

Ok. I will check the wire, coming from the ign. Key switch, to fuse holder. But: it wil be tomorrow. It got dark here, in Ca. Thanks.
Expert:  Steve replied 3 months ago.

the battery provides power to the ignition switch, to the fuse block to the lights. there's not much to it. it shouldn't be hard to figure out.

let me know if you need more help.
