Having a problem and time is an issue - August 13, 2012, 11:17 AM

Some how I managed to miss the fact that the turn signals are coming on like hazards.

The guy I bought from (in NC) swapped out the turn signals for these

I have a paper permit good through tomorrow and I need the VA Inspection to get tags. Can anybody point me in a direction to get this fixed in time to get it to inspection legally?

If they are LED, its probably a resistance issue. Since when do you need an inspection to get tags in VA?

Where are you located??
state of VA does not require turn signals for inspection.
Take them off completely and you'll pass.

you say coming on like hazards. meaning you turn on left signal and both come on? same with right?
sounds like they are installed improperly....
Happy to take a peek at it if you are local. Otherwise I'd just remove them for inspection.

Yeah just take them off for inspection. If they are LED your going to fail anyway.


Yeah I am old enough to know better. Thing is, I just don't care.

Thought you had to have working signals at inspection and that you had to have passed inspection to get tagged.

Yes, they're all four coming on each time, whether you press for left or right.

I've just been riding a couple of years and haven't done any wrenching/modding so I'm not very able but I'm very willing to learn.

I'm in Alexandria.

Nope. If the signals are there, they must be working... But actually having turn signals is not required

I've registered a good number of bikes w/o inspection. You may be thinking of the emissions inspection required for registering a car in some VA counties? Are they LED, and are there signs of modified wiring? I'm guessing if all four are coming on, somebody messed up when installing them.

I'm in Alexandria too and I wouldn't mind throwing the multi-meter on and seeing if there is an easy fix.

Yeah that too... registration and inspection are separate. However, up in that area you'd need an emissions inspection prior to registration, but that doesn't have anything to do with your turn signals.

No our not required to have them. Just need to have working arms. But if they are on the bike they have to work.

you have like 30 days after you get your plates to get it inspected.

Without plates you'd have to tow all your vehicles to a place to get them inspected, and then back home...?

So get your plates and fix/remove your turn signals this month.

^This there is no way they are coming on at once unless he wired them wrong. I hate electrical shit. Hopefully its an easy fix. If not like others said take the signals off, pass inspection, put them back on and figure out the problem later.
