not to get too confused but I know on the 06 that the passing lights do not power up til the bike is running or at least been started, some kind of relay. keeps mine off but if I start the bike and shut it down with the kill switch they stay on.. blue wire only to passing lights not connected to headlights... but I have not looked at any other wiring diagrams.. my 06 silverado came with the lights and if you change out the module with a dyna you have to by pass the relay and power it up directly from some other source..

Just the "Silverado" models 2005 and up have the separate circuit for the passing lamps that works like you have described... and the passing lights are hooked to this via a white 2-prong plug assembly ...not hooked to the headlight fuse but on a separate relay

But you still have a blue wire for the front running lights and the rear tailight and it is hooked to the headlight fuse...and that is the way the passing lamps are hooked up in other R* models...to remain on all the time...

Cobra Light Bar Install on a 2006 Midnight Roadie

Have it physically on, and running into 2 problems.

1 - cant find a live wire, even the blue to the flashers..Blinkers are working fine, but cant get a live to run to the passing bulbs. Ran a test light on the blue, no light. Ran on the blinkers Green, and Brown, and switche on, and the passing bulbs blink as they should. So there mounted correctly, but cants find a live wire. INstallation says the blue wire to the flashers, but no go.

2- My Headlight fuse keeps blowing..cant figure out why except that the headligt is not on, dont know if thats a problem, but with the fuse in, soon as I turn the ignition, it blows.. Didnt do anything to the headlight, except remove it..
PLease help, Greatly appreciated..


Thanks
John

Finally Got It..Thanks so much for these great replies..
I disconnected both signals put in a new fuse and all worked..
When I connected the left signal, it blew the fuse..

I pulled apart the signal, and inside where the bulb is, the blue wire had a hairline crack, which rubbed on the new Cobra Lightbar mount..not on the oem

stripped it , soldered a better connection, and heat wrapped it, and better than new...no more fuses blown..

THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE HELPED RESPONDED..AT LEAST NOW I LEARNED HOW TO REBUILD THE FLASHERS, IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS..

Thanks again.

John
