Hey everyone! New to the forum and looking for some insight. I have a 96 sportster 1200. The issue: when turning the key to the Acc position the tach and speedo lights display. When ignition switch is switched to run speedo and tach lights go out. I also have no dummy lights at any time. While riding the speedo nor tach work and the blinkers will not continuously flash unless holding the button. I'm at a loss. Any help would greatly be appreciate thanks!

Sportsters had ignition switch failures. Try toggling the switch a bunch of times to see if anything changes. I'm referring to the key switch, not the run/off button.

Sorry for not clarifying but that is the switch in question. I plan on checking the wires to the switch this weekend. According to the diagrams the accessories not operating correctly all run threw the key turn switch. Thanks

The switch wiring connector is hidden under the tank along the frame backbone.
The replacement H-D switch has short wires with butt connectors for splicing into the main harness. No need to take the main harness apart for that.
