Installed 14” Renegades on my new 2019
Road glide and nothing works. Turn the ignistion on the radio, headlights and running lights come on. All the hand controls do not work nor does the speedometer or any gauges. I am baffled as I did not mess with the speedo wire except for unplugging it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Check that you didn’t mix up the small switch housing plugs under the speedo cluster. If you have right plugged into left and left into right, nothing will work.

I pulled the speedo back off, reversed everything, put it together and nothing. Put them all back and nada! If one set of wired is bad will it make everything not work or will it just affect what the wires are connected too?

Did you take pictures of the main Molex connector, I think it was the right side) and make sure you plugged them in exactly the way you took them out?
Also, did you hear the audible click when you plugged them back in?
You shouldn't have a "bad" wire on a new bike, unless you just reefed on them.

Found the culprit. The 5 amp fuse blew. There is a spare in the fuse box. Fixed the problem, bike back on the road!

So the only thing you did was install the new bars and now you have no switch function from either side? What did you use to extend the wires for the switch housings? Typically, only the side with the bad wires will stop working.

Couple suggestions of things to check:
- neither switch housing is pinching anything right where the halves meet
- With new grips, the left grip is stepped so that the switch housing pinches it, making it a glueless install. Have seen the grip turn which makes the switch housing sit weird, and have seen that affect
the switches working at all
- Double check the little white plug on the back of each switch pack. Have see those come loose
