Indicator light blinking but not turning on

Hello,

I was installing Indicator (Turn Signal) visors on my V Star 1100 Silverado.

While everything went fine, the right side turn signal is not turning on (that is, not always running like headlight or the left turn signal). When I click it to signal, it starts blinking without any issues.

Whats interesting is that when I tried to loosen up a screw on the indicator lens to fix it properly, it turned on, and I thought may be a loose connection or wiring caused it to go off. But after sometime it again went off, and never came up again

What should I check/do to make sure its running back on?

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you either have a bad lamp filament, or bad contact in the socket. Start with the lamp, try a new one, if the problem persists then take a close look at the contacts at the socket and that they are not bent or have corrosion.

@Dennsco-Thanks! You are right, it was the bad filament! Replaced the bulb and all good!
