    Was riding the 09 SG this evening and all of sudden, see a funny little light on the Speedo, and was tryin' to figure it out.

    Tried my turn signals and nothin'. Also after I got stopped, noticed I didn't have a brake light... Hmmmm any ideas, other than busted wire, short, or? Looked in the OM and it said "Indicator Lamps".

    I do have a head light and the bottom tail light on the fender but no brake light or tail lights or blinkers. Could it be a flasher maybe?
    Thanx in advance....

    Check fuses first, then check for broken or rubbed thru wires

    I found it was a fuse and replaced it. It was the ACC fuse. However, when I turn on the ignition, I still get the code, even though I have turn signals and I do have tail light but no brake light, and when I do hit the brake light it seems to blow the "just replaced fuse", so maybe a chaffed wire somewhere....I'm thinkin'?
    Maybe time to take it in to the dealer and let them figure it out....

    Maybe check under rear fender for tire hitting wires. It is a very close fit on my bike. Worth taking a look.

    Had the same problem. Turned out there was a wire pinch in the left switch housing.

    I decided to take it in yesterday. I had a couple of factory recalls to do like the tank, maybe the 402 tire, and the kickstand mod if I'm not mistaken.
    My 09 was built in 10/08.
