I have a 08 sv650. I recently purchased it from someone, and didn't notice this prior. It seems the turn indicators won't activate with the switch, but the hazards will blink just fine. I also noticed the horn button on the left hand switches also not working. The other switches for headlights and pass light work just fine. I've been doing a lot of reading and can not figure out the cause. Thank you in advance.

id suspect the left hand switch (either the wiring, connector, or the buttons). they're cheap enough to try swapping and replacing it takes like 5 minutes... either that or fuse...

I would take apart the switch and clean up the contacts as a first step if you don't have a test light or multimeter.

I will go ahead and clean up the switch. I do have a multimeter is there somewhere in the switch I need to test or is in the first wire harness the best place?

You can start testing anywhere you like so long as you know what a good result is vs a bad result. But the switch is an easy to access, logical place to start since it's a built-in break in the circuit.
