    I have am some issues with my Harley softail.
    1) I put new chrome switch housings on and before I assembled them everything worked, however my horn and turn signals will not work now.
    2) My speedemeter , fuel gauge are not working as well as my neutral light does not come on.

    Are these all related?
    Thanks in advance.

    Do you have an owners manual? Have a look in your fuse box first, do you have blown fuses or main breaker bad?

    X2 with the first two posters and would add there is a service manual for just the electrical side of your bike. I have both and they have saved my tail good luck

    Always start where you finished and work backwards. You have gotten some great advice from a couple of experts....

    Sounds like you pinched a wire and that caused a fuse to blow. Check the fuses first for one or two blown. If so, back check your housings for a pinched wire. Hoople may join this with additional ideas.
