Customer Question

2008 Harley Night Train FXSTB:
Changed head light: (Halogen H4) which also has integral LED marker lights around bezel.
Changed front stock dual function signal lights to LED single function signal lights.
Rear signals have been changed a few years ago to LED along with load equalizer - work great.
Made an error in splicing wires to new front signal lights/marker lights and blew 15 amp fuse. All wiring is spliced okay now. Replaced fuse.
This is the problem: left turn signals front & rear work ok along with rear run/turn/brake lights. BUT right turn signals do not blink - front or rear. Right rear LED remains lit but no blink. Right front LED turn signal no blink. Suspect the TSSM got damaged because of my shorting error??
