Riding in the dark

Just put new bars on my 2011 ultra limited and all lights were working fine. Than I saw that the break lights weren't working with hand or foot controls, thats when all hell started to rain down on my ass. lost horn, turn signals, head light and all dash lights at one point couldnt even get it to turn on and start after messing with the ignition got it to start. It had running lights but nothing else! had to ride it home at night with just running lights. Everything worked great before installing new bars! Need some help here guys !!!!!!!!

Sounds like you pinched some wires during the bar install. Recheck your work.

Sounds like damage in your wiring loom from your install. I would not be surprised to see a wire or two with damaged insulation causing a short. This is why it is so imperative to be very gentle when installing cable.

You could also have a connector not seated properly or a misaligned pin.
