Keeps blowing the light fuse.

Hello one and all, I have a good one and I am in need of help...
I have a 2001 EG STD; only thing added to the wiring system is a Kuryakya – Rear, Run – turn – Brake controller.

Everything was going fine until about 3 months ago. My bike started blowing the light fuse when ever I run the spot lights.

I have replaced the front tip light and the wiring to the front tip light. Replaced the wires running to the two spot lights.

I can remove the controller and everything will work. I had the controller replaced under warranty. Still blowing fuses with the new controller.

I know that I am over looking something :hmmm: , and yes I have the factory wiring diagrams and have checked the connectors and grounds.

Any suggestion?

Check the current draw on your other lights. Unplug the headlight and then turn on the spots. If they blow the fuse by themselves, you have a short in the circuit, if all looks good, check the switch, they can go bad.

routr66paul, thank you for the reply. I rechecked everything today, I will check the switch, that was the only thing that I did not check.

You said everything worked without the controller did you not? I have gone through 3 of these Kuryakyn load limiters and each one was defective. I finally landed one that was not and it has worked flawlessly for 2 years. You may also want to check for water build-up in one of the connectors. That can happen as well and short out a connection and blow the fuse.
