Hey All,

After 10 years of being in storage, I decided to get my 86' 450 running again. Doing a bunch of fixes and such now.
I Put on new rear turn signals but:
- They won't even light up, let alone blink.
- Front signals light up but the Right front goes dark when applied. Left front works fine and blinks on command
- To top it off, the brake light lights up but does not engage when either brake is applied.
Fuse checked out fine, minus the ants nest in the box...

What else can I check? Perhaps the issues aren't related either, but what would cause the rear issues together?

Are the new rear signals LED or incandescent? LEDs don't draw enough power to activate the stock mechanical flasher. An electrical flasher is needed with LEDs bulbs.

Nope, They are not LED. Bulb is a fat round incandescent.
Checked that after reading another post in the forum.
Thanks though. Seems to actually be a common problem with LEDs on the CMX's
