Sure..pick 1 trouble, grab the service manual and work thru it. It'll likely lead to a commonality that accounts for the rest of the faults.

Does the engine run and the high beams work? I can find nothing in common with all those things that would still allow the engine to run except possibly the main ground.
I am looking at the 06> manual, what year is the bike?

the bike is a 2003. The running lights were on after all, what else i found was one of the fuses on the right side of the fuse block was put back in the wrong place when checking them for continuity. that fuse controlled the horn and the turn signals and the brakes. now for the low beam head lights issue, both low beams non working. in looking over everything and checking the relays i suggested we pull one of the bulbs and sure enough it was burnt out and luckily he had one replacement. found the other buld burned out as well. we have no idea what caused both bulbs to both burn out at the same time . . . but stuff happens!

Thanks to the members that posted responses . . . SALUTE!!
