    Glad to hear you located the bad ground. That could have gotten ugly.

    I hit some road debris going about 70 mph, a piece of large scrap iron. It flipped up and cracked the bottom of the engine.

This was an indication of a ground issue, but where to begin?

    Last week, I hooked up my Bushtec trailer and noticed that none of my lights were working on the trailer. Ahh, another hint! I removed the seat, traced the wires from the trailer harness relay and voila, the ground wire was left unattached. I connected it to the negative post on the battery and all of the trailer lights now function perfectly. I am going out on a limb here and suggest that this was the ground issue that screwed up my LED turn signal lights. I will be putting the LEDs back in this week just to test my theory.
    Why did you have your engine rebuilt?? Thanks

    I will be interested in your results. As I found a couple years ago, the bulbs were the problem.

    If I was a betting man, I believe you might have solved the turn signal issue. I had similiar issue on my '05 and it was the ground-wire going through the large plug under the seat. I jumped the ground wire over the large plug and everything began working again.
