craftyrafter I had a similar thing happen with the rear turn signals. The issue was that I swapped two of the wires that went to the back end. What would happen is that when I pressed the brake the rear turn signals would turn on, but the license plate light would turn off. The brake light functioned like normal. If the license plate light didn't turn off, I would have kept it like that, because extra brake lights aren't a bad thing. Getting the correct color wires connected fixed it.

hmm, bad flasher unit, bad switch, wrong wires......

OK, start from the bottom up.
make sure the flasher unit flashes when connected to the battery and a light.

make sure the turn signal switch is making good contact when selecting a side.
make sure the turn signal switch is connected to the orange and light blue wires
make sure the turn signals are connected to the orange and light blue wires.

Cydney Dominique Seiber I tried switching them on the relay like was said to. And that still didn’t fix the issue.

Cydney Dominique Seiber Okay I didn’t know that. Thought if you hooked them backwards than it’d throw a fuse. I’ll try that today. Thank you

kryton Correct, if you have these 2 wires switched the unit gives you steady on lights instead of flashing

Cydney Dominique Seiber So switch it on the relay not the wires coming from turn signals?

SoakedKarma what @kryton is saying is swap the wires at flasher relay..
see if that changes no flash condition..

Cydney Dominique Seiber Are you meaning the wires? Coming from the turn signals? I’m not sure if the front ones are after market or not bc that was already on when bought the bike. But I order some saddle boxes that had turn signals built in them.

kryton Is it an aftermarket electronical flasher unit?
If the B (+12 from battery) and L (load/Lights) are connectec backwards the electronic ones stay on and don't flash.

Cydney Dominique Seiber I did. I also pulled my bulbs and indicator relay off my 04 bike to put on the 01 to see and be certain and no matter what I’ve tried their still staying solid when I turn them on.
