Intergrated Taillight (Blinker does not blink)

Hey I have done some searching:book1: on this topic but can not find anything specific to my problem. I have hooked up the CA, and the blinkers do not blink. They signal left to right and do not blink. Everything else worked without a problem. Any ideas what the problem is??? Any help would be great.

Try to keep flaming to a minimal.

Thanks, Hector

Started the bike, didnt blink at first then it started to blink. This is off and on and now it doesnt blink. Any other ideas. Also would it make a difference that I have the blinker wires tapped into the plug and play harness for the scorpio alarm.

Thanks for any help

do you have resistors hooked up to each blinker and taillight...some taillights dont need them though...

I tried with the resistors on and off with same results. Its just odd how it didnt work and then started to work and from there it was a on and off problem.

Anymore help would be great.

Thanks

Sounds like you have your blinkers hooked up to constant power. Be sure you have it wired right. If your front blinkers are blinking then your probably not wired right

Yea I am still having the problem as well. I got them to work for a few seconds and then they just turn solid.

I have no clue whats wrong.

Yes I do have ones in the front as well. I dont think I need the resistors because I had them blinking for a moment and then they just stay solid.

it blinks when the bike is on only for a moment then when you turn off the blinker and turn it on again it stays solid.

just finished installing my ca tail and hotbodies front. I used resisters in the back but not the front and it works fine. hook the green wire from the stock harness to one end of the resister. then hook the other end of the resister to the CA yellow wire and the other wire off the stock harness(blue or orange depending on which side) together. you shouldent need resisters in the front at all. thats what i did and it works great.

Check out the link previously posted:
https://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.p...1&page=8&pp=15

Especially KulSecHskY and CNI Dawg .

I followed their instructions and spliced in a flasher relay at the harness on the left side (Near the other flashers).

If you ordered the CA Flasher with your CA tail light, it will function just fine if you splice that in. Otherwise you can use any 1-20 amp variable load relay. I tried both a Tridon EL12 and a Grote #44891. I didn't like the audible blinker though, so I switched back to the CA flasher relay.

I'm running a CA Tail Light and Watsen Design 3 LEDs upfront.

2 cuts, soldered some spades, attached to the flasher and done.

Easier, cleaner, more secure than resistors, and no worries about burn through of resistors on your fairings.

Hope that helps.

i know exactly what u guys are talking about. i also have CA integrated tail and hotbodies flushies. What me and my buddy did was pretty ghetto but it works. The resistors did not do enough to reduce the power so all the lights stayed on solid. So since we didnt have any other resistors we just wired in some tiny turn signals on both sides, along with the flushies and tail light, electrical taped the signals up, and hid them inside the tail. The signal bulbs act as a resistor and all the blinking works fine.

I know its ghetto, but it worked, gonna get some proper resistors in there and get it done right.

Here is what is happening... You have led's in the front and the rear.. Your led's are not drawing enough power to make your flasher flash when the bike is off... If you use your signals when the bike is off this is a problem, but I don't see why you would need to use your signals if you bike is off.. If you start the bike and they work, then the problem is solved... If you really want them to work when the bike is off you need to get an electronic flasher. T

well now i feel dumber than usual... we never actually fired the bike up when wiring it up and testing, we just turned it over, and check the lights like that. But tripage, ur saying if i actually turn it on, the blinkers will work normally with just the resistor provided? i'm gonna give it a try.

I just ran my led driving lights into the signals and helped the safety concern with flushmounts, and slowed my blinking down considerably.

Man, I've tried searchin everywhere for an answer, but with mine I also have CA tailghts, but when I was installing them and put the resistors in ( let me say I hae no idea how to install resistor, so no makin fun of ) They were workin but only when I touched the wires from the resistor, cause if I left them connected they would just stay on; and when I turn my bike on it looks like they are flashing but way too fast. So it looks like they just stay on. I'm startin to get frustrated... so if anyone could help me, it would be greatly apprecated.
