    I have a 2002 sportster 1200 custom. The turn signals and 4 ways do not work. When the buttons are pushed the lights do not even light up. I checked the the fuses and did not find any bad ones. Want to make sure I am not missing something before I replace turn signal module.

    New to the site and first post. Looks like a great site.

    Thank you

    It's strange that all four are not working. I would recheck all the fuses even replace them with a new one. Check the bulbs and sockets for corrosion.

    Hopefully someone who is more experienced will chime in. Good luck!

    I would check and clean all the grounds. With a cheap test light or volt meter you can check for power into and out of your flasher relay. You can also check your switch for power in and out. It's just a process of elimination. On my fxr there's a ground wire from the handlebar mounting bolt to the triple clamp. It became brittle and broke causing all signals to fail. Good luck to you.
