    1992 Ultra Classic flasher breaker

    I am working on a friend's 92 Ulta, no signal lights  working until i rap on the breakers under the fairing, there are 5 in a row and i have it figured out to be the second one from the right side when sitting on bike. Can anyone verify this? I am having trouble finding a wiring diagram on line.

    robert - I will check my book tonight - I will probably have to send you what color whires are being used - Purple comes to mind as being a common color for signal lights (right side or is it left?)

    An additional thought - does the '92 have self cancelling signal lights and eletronic speedo?   if yes, does the speedo still work (sign of self cancelling box gone south)

    both sides did not work, not sure if it has four way function . breakers are a little green from moisture. i tapped on them and signals work now, i will check four way function today. I don;t want to put fairing on without changing breaker at least.

    Robert. this is a good lesson, the first thing you do with any electrical issue is to trace the wireing, and check, and clean all connections...

    91-92 FLHTC Ultra

    I traced the wiring diagram in my manual - it goes
    from power
    to the switch
    to a turn signal module
    to the signal light
    finally to ground

    there are 7 wires going to the turn signal modual
    orange - 1
    black - 1
    brown (maybe tan) - 1
    white w/green - 1
    purple - 1
    white w/purple - 2

    hope this helps

    As Fx suggests, if you have "friends" that want you to work on their bike for beer money, perhaps you can talk them into buying a $50 shop manual - it will make your life so much easier

    Re: 1992 Ultra Classic flasher breaker

    the orange wire is a general purpose live and should go the ignition switch which sould be fed through a breaker.

    If, as you say you have corrision, I would suggest getting a can of electrical contact cleaner and some dialetic (sp) grease for the contacts.

     Ok i unplugged the module and checked the orange wire in harness, when key switch on there is power at plug, i checked the white wires and when each signal light switch is pushed the respective wire in harness lights up. This leads me to think module is faulty. I am going to check the grounds tomorrow night just to be sure. Not easy to see past the mess of wiring.

    I can imagine how tight things are in there - heck it took me a bit of time just to look at the pages of wiring diagram

    Re: 1992 Ultra Classic flasher breaker

    Is there anyway to check the module with an ohm meter? The right side works good, but the left side is intermittent. i changed bulbs and checked grounds.
