Hello, I have a 94 Kawasaki en500 and for some reason the turn signals won’t work. The front signals have the running light working. But no flash in front or rear. I changed out the flasher relay and that didn’t work. I checked wires and they all have continuity. Power to the switch is good and I opened to check for corrosion but that’s good also. And I checked to make sure all wires that need to grounded are grounded. Fuses are good too.
could it be my junction box?

So it sounds like you have and can use a DMM if you checked wire continuity.
With the handlebar switch turn a signal on.
At the signal relay you should see power blinking.
If there go to the bulbs.
If not there then go to the junction box.
Its not a complicated setup. Just take your time and IF you can find a schematic even better.
Here's one but its hard to follow unless you print it out - Go to page 275

Thanks. But I’m thinking it’s the junction box. But I did not change the bulbs in front. I figured the running light was working I will double check the bulbs. Thanks again

Well yes try a new bulb, but what I was getting at is measure the voltage at the relay, then bulbs.
Finding a problem with electrical is seeing where it works and where is doesnt and zeroing in on where it doesnt work to find the problem.
Could be all bulbs re bad????

Ok I have 2 wires going to my flasher relay. An Orange wire which goes to the turn signal switch ,
And a brown wire which leads to the junction box.
now with the key turned off I get 12volts for the brown wire. But when I turn the key the bolts drop way down to below 1volt
I think the junction box is bad ?

Guess what I got it. It took me about 5 hours but after checking the whole wire harness it turned out to be the switch. I was able to cut the three wires away and re- solder them back on. It works just great now. I did all that checking of the wire harness when I should of took the time to check the switch. That was my fault. Duh
