Hazzard lights.

Well, I ran into my first bug on my 1500 last night.

While on a ride with several other bikes one of the others engine died and we all pulled off into the shoulder of the highway.

When I hit my Hazzard lights only the left one came on blinking. The indicator, front and rear lights on the right never worked. Though the turn signal works just fine.

I have a wedding to attend today so I have to wait until tomorrow to dive into this. But any ideas you guys have would be a help.

You have input voltage to the Hazard switch from the Hazard relay. No problem with the Hazard relay.

You have output voltage from the left (orange wire) on the Hazard switch.

You either have one of the following issues:

1. No output voltage on the right (light blue wire) from the Hazard switch.

2. A problem where the right (light blue wire) is spliced into the right (light blue wire) from the turn signal switch.

3. A broken (light blue wire).

Note: The splice is right at the left handlebar where the wires come out from the turn signal switch, doubtful a broken wire (its a short run).

I would suspect an issue with the Hazard switch. Try cleaning the switch.

So, have you ever sat down and calculated how many times you have given out that piece of advice?

If you have a problem with that advice, then I suggest you change the tail light oil.

What weight would that be? Is it the same stuff you use in the blinker?
