    Hoping one of you more experienced Vision owners can give me a hint :)

    I took off the trunk last fall right after I got the bike but decided to put it back on recently for helmet storage and passenger comfort.

    Problem is the marker lights aren't coming on nor is the courtesy light inside. The speakers are working and the accessory plug is also working.

    Strangely, the courtesy light has voltage at the plug under the seat but the marker lights don't.

    I've checked the fuses and replaced the bulbs in the marker light.

    Only thing I can think of is the accessory light relay is not functioning?

    Figured it out!

    Turned out to be the connector under the plastic panel behind the right rear speaker had somehow disconnected.

    so my marker lights just went out on my trunk and the search forum got me here. i read the thread , remove the right speaker and look down in there and see a plug just dangling there. at this point i'm thinking easy fix, but could not find another plug anywhere around there to plug it into. removed the seat thinking that might help but all that got me was more filth than i knew what to do with,lol. just may remove the trunk for the first time ever to try and kill two birds with one stone . don't know if the OP visits the site much, i hope he does :confused-72:

    Could be the bulbs themselves. Did you check those? @VicVisionBulldog changed his not too long ago.

    I sure did. Replaced them with interior lights I took out of my F150 and replaced with LEDS.

    It's an easy job. Remove the plug. Remove screw. Housing comes out. Twist bulb out... Replace. Now follow steps backwards. Use some liquid soap.... Or spit.... to make the plugs go in easier. Getting the plugs back in is the hardest part of it all.

    the fact that they both went at the same time made me think it wasn't just the bulb but it wouldn't hurt to rule that out real quick.
