Title: Turn signals not working.
Post by: BigK on May 07, 2018, 06:56:59 pm
Ok i have upgraded to LED turn signals and the proper flasher unit. I don't think that is causing the issue. Thought I seen it mentioned before but could not find it. I have a 2017 c-14. The issue:
   Has happen twice once in a bad rain, once after washing the bike. The turn signals stop working. The last time while checking things they would work with the engine not running but not while it was. Eventally what ever got wet dried out they started working again.
    Thought I saw this problem mentioned before, and it was with the switch. Was wondering if there was a solution other than don't get it wet.

Thanks for your help.

Hi. Did you find your issue? Mine may be similar but definately nothing to do with water ingest. My turn signal s suddenly turn off. Stop the engine. Restart, and they are ok again. I'm looking for ideas where to look.

Yes, it turned out to be the flasher unit was getting water in it. New unit and repositioning it solved my problem.

Did you mean the Flasher RELAY, or one of the bulb housings??

Relays are usually sealed.

Glad you fixed it.

Switched out all my running and turns with LEDs last year - and never one issue.
All from Superbright.

Flasher Relay. The wires had a lose shield around then that was molded into the flasher relay. The open end was facing up. I assumed water got it that way. Could have just been a bad flasher from the get go. All I know is the new flasher relay fixed the problem.
