In the woodlands WITHOUT LIGHTS

i drove in from college station to do some wednesday night riding, and now its dark and i just realized my tach, headlights, brights, lisence plate lights down work..... the only lights that do work are the signals and my brake light with u pull in the brake.
i was thinking a fuse but i know one fuse doesnt control all of that.

if there is anyone close to 242 and college ave. that could help me look at this it would be much appreciated.

or any suggestions because i cant be stuck in woodlands overnight

I'm in spring and have a truck if you need it. About 20-25 minutes away. I can take you to get a fuse too. Let me know.

Check your fuse panel under one of the panels to the left or right of your guages (usually a black plastic panel that you can open).

Usually, there is a spare fuse in there for you. Sounds like you blew one.

The same fuse that controls the headlights also controls the gauge cluster, but does not control the turn signals or the brake lights. When I had my R1, I wired a killswitch to the lights. The gauge and all the lights shut off when I flipped the switch, but the brake light and signals still worked, so I had to wire in a second switch.

So yes, it's probably one fuse. You should have a spare fuse in the fuse panel.

That's cool that you were able (& willing) to lend a hand. I'm thinkin that is what separates MH from some of the other sites.

+1

and you too, Bean... many props for volunteering...

If I had seen this before I left, I would have stopped to help... I was in the woodlands on 242 taking a friend of mine riding around... just got back from there...

Glad you got help though...
