On my 01 FXD my left turn signal stopped working. Nothing happens when I push the button, no front or rear lights nor the indicator come on. Everything else works fine. Any ideas? Switch gone bad? At first I thought fuse, but wouldn't both sides be on the same fuse?

The fuse covers all lights I belive. My guess would be the switch.....Check the switch with a multimeter to see if it is operational.

You might want to check the connection. I had just the opposite happen, the turn signal would light, but the light by itself wouldn't work. It might also help to put some more dielectric (sp) gel back in there.

Apparently, at least in my experience, these bikes are VERY intolernant of variances in amperage draw---the left side turn signals on my 98 fxd quit flashing because the indicator bulb was burned out---replaced the idiot light bulb and signals worked fine again---
