HELP!! Need Rear Turn Signals Info ASAP!

Was working on installing a voltmeter and was trying to isolate a switched lead on a VN700. I'm not sure what I did but my rear turn signals no longer stay lit. Flashers work but no running lights. Tail light and brake light work. License plate light work. Front turn signals (flashers and front running lights) work. Checked fuses in the junction box and the fuses are fine. Need to get this fixed this weekend because I use my bike to get to and from work. Any suggestions on what to do?

First, calm down!!

Second, our bikes do not have running lights in the rear turn signals, just the front.

Thanks. I feel like a dumbass. I don't normally ride at night so I just noticed it. Rear of the bike needs more illumination though.

Just to set your mind at ease. Electric turn signals are not required in Texas. They are a lot handier than hand signals. Hand signals are allowed.
