I looked up what a modulator was. To my knowledge I do not have a modulator. The lights did not act this way previously.

Have you checked the grounds yet?

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I have not checked ground yet. I need to locate where they are. My tank shroud is still in place.

Ok, I used test clips to jump the ground to the headlight to a good ground. Everything working normal. The best I can figure is that my headlight ground went and the headlight grounded itself thru the turn signal circuit.
