    Left Indicator Not Working

    Hey all. Looking for a little advice as to what to check next. My left indicator has stopped working (front and back, no light on the ‘dash’ either). I’ve checked both bulbs and all the earths seem good. I tried to get into the switch housing but the Allen bolt is rusted to the point where the head is rounded. I’ll look at drilling this out if need be but wondered if anyone can tell me where to look next? I haven’t looked at the flasher unit yet but will when I get home.

    Cheers in advance,

    Scott - Wookiee

    What happens whe you try to put the hazards on?

    Also do you have an alarm that flashes the turnsignals when activated?

    Just the right flashes if I put the hazards on Phil. No alarm. I should have said that his is on a ‘93 XLH 883 Hugger.

    Do you have a wiring diagram?

    Do this with continuity tester with no power on the bike.
    1. Check indicator switch is actually working.
    2. Check connectivity from the indicator switch to the flasher unit.
    3. Check connectivity of power lines to and from flasher unit.

    My indicator started working again!

    (No it didn’t, yes it did, no it didn’t).

    I knew if I left it for a couple of days it would self-heal. Happy days!
