    2007 ultra is my ride. The other day I was forced to do some fancy manuvers. When doing so my right foot peg hit a parked car. Not knowing if this has anything to do with the bumping on the right side of the bike, but, I have now discovered my turn signals don't work, my horn does not work and my cruise control is not working. I checked the fuses, they seem to be ok. So, before taking it to the dealer I thought I was ask you folks for any advise.:bigsmiley15:

    Sounds like you may have damaged a spur on the wiring harness. You might want to run through the harnes on the underside of the bike to check.

    I would check in the area where the contact was made for damage or pinched wires, possibly a separated connector.

    You could use a 12V test light and start at the directional and trace the wire backwards towards the battery/ign switch. When you find where the break is the test light will light.

    Good luck with that. Hope you don't have to refinance our home to get it fixed.

    Well, got the beast back today. The Tech found 2 shorts, fixed them and charged the work to the warr. However, a oil change did cost me 70 bucks.:)
