Twin headlamp failure

2001 ZX9R E2. Headlamps do not come on when engine started. Both bulbs replaced, no change (on dip or main beams). Fuses checked, no problems. Con checks on wiring done as far as possible (that which is accessible under the seat) all OK and no obvious signs of wiring loom damage or shorting as far as I can see. All other electrics and lighting not affected. No other items changed.

About to hand it over to the money pit that is the Kawasaki dealer.

    The Kawasaki dealer had it for half a day and said they fixed it (after grafting a new wire into the loom). I went to collect it only to find that the problem had reappeared so they took it back.



    They had it all day and have just asked to jeep it in another day as they can't figure it out.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ :-/



    I'll let you know how it goes.

    SAME DAMN THING! cant figure it out..has anyone actually figured out what the solution is? i have a 2000 zx-6r and the little light that comes on with the key has power, but not the headlights after you hit the ignition. with some common sense, you would think it is a relay of some sort....

    need help!

I have Kawasaki ZX9R F2 2003 version. My headlights stopped working and Front signal lights at same time. I have taken the bike apart looking for a problem. So far all fuses are in order, no splits on cables, fuses, bulbs and relays all working. Stator and Rectifier definately all working OK as battery is charging at 14v when engine is on. No other electrical faults but this one. I have checked Starter Switch and HIGH/LOW switch - all seams to be in order. Maybe I'm still missing something. After reading so many Blogs about the issue it seams like it's comon fault on these but no one has posted difinate solution. Did anyone have this problem and solved it with a fix that worked.

I had the same problem with Headlights not coming on, after doing a con checking on all wires which was good. four hours later and a massive attitutde. Found that it was a bad HIGH/LOW SWITCH. Check your high/low switch

Hi,

Depending on the version/region of intended use, Kawasakis have a 4 pin headlight relay. In some versions, this would be located on or near the battery enclosure. additionally, again on some versions, there would be smaller relays and a diode matrix underneath the fuse bank.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Low beam headlights do not work 2010 chevy impala high beams work as do daytime running lights low beams do not work on either automatic mode or manual mode


The headlamps are controlled by the BCM - body control module , do you know what that is ? The headlamp switch is a input to the BCM ,the BCM energizes relays to turn on the headlmps , low beam relay , high beam relay , DRL relay . These relay's are PCB - printed circuit board relay's ( non - serviceable ) If found to be bad the whole under hood fuse box would need to be replaced .
Low Beam Headlamp Operation
The low beam headlamps may be turned ON in 3 different ways:
• When the headlamp switch in the HEAD position for normal operations
• When the headlamp switch is in the AUTO position, for automatic lamp control (ALC)
• When the headlamp switch is placed in the AUTO position, with the windshield wipers ON in daylight conditions, after a 6 second delay
Battery voltage is applied at all times to the coil and switch sides of the LOW BEAM PCB Relay located in the underhood fuse block. When the headlamp switch is placed in the HEAD position, ground from G202 is applied through headlamps ON switch signal circuit to the body control module (BCM), signaling the headlamps ON request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies ground through the headlamp low beam relay control circuit energizing the low beam relay. With the relay energized, battery voltage is applied through the switch side of the relay, the left and right low beam fuses, and the low beam supply voltage circuits illuminating the low beam headlamps. Ground for the left headlamp is provided at G101 and the right headlamp at G100.

Do you know what B codes are ? BCM - DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , need a factory scanner or professional one to view these codes , not autozone or advance etc....Having a qualified repair shop check your vehicle would be your best bet.

DTC B2575 00: Headlamp Control Circuit

Circuit/System Description
The vehicle headlamps are controlled by the body control module (BCM) based on inputs from the headlamp switch and the turn signal/multifunction switch. The headlamp switch has four positions: Off, Auto, Park, and Headlamps. The default headlamp switch position is Auto, in which the BCM uses the ambient light sensor to determine when headlamps are needed. The Off portion of the headlamp switch is a momentary switch which overrides the automatic headlamps and will turn off the vehicle headlamps. When in the Off position, the headlamp switch grounds the headlamp switch headlamps off signal circuit, prompting the BCM to turn off the headlamps. The Park position of the headlamp switch will only illuminate the vehicle parking lamps. The Headlamp position of the headlamp switch will illuminate both the parking lamps, as well has the headlamps. With the headlamp switch in the Headlamp position, the headlamp switch headlamps on signal circuit is grounded, prompting the BCM to turn on the headlamps, regardless of other factors such as ambient light.
The headlamp high beams are controlled through the flash to pass switch and the headlamp dimmer switch, both located in the turn signal/multifunction switch. The flash to pass switch is a momentary type switch, designed to illuminate the high beams as long as the switch is held. With the switch closed, the flash to pass switch signal circuit is grounded, prompting the BCM to turn on the high beam lamps. The headlamp dimmer switch allows the operator to select between full time high or low beam operation. Unlike the flash to pass switch, it is not a momentary switch. When the headlamp dimmer switch is in the high beam position, the headlamp dimmer switch high beam signal circuit is grounded. This prompts the BCM to turn on the high beam lamps.
The BCM controls the headlamps based on the inputs explained above. When a low beam request is received, the BCM grounds the headlamp low beam relay control circuit. This energizes the coil in the LOW BEAM PCB relay, causing the relay switch to close. This then applies B+ to both low beam headlamps through the LT LO BEAM and RT LO BEAM fuses, illuminating the low beam headlamps. When a high beam request is received, the BCM grounds the headlamp high beam relay control circuit. This energizes the coil in the HIGH BEAM PCB relay, causing the relay switch to close. This then applies B+ to both high beam headlamps through the LT HI BEAM and RT HI BEAM fuses, illuminating the high beam headlamps

My 98 Sable headlights only work on high beams. Is this just a bulb or do I need to replace the headlamps?


Check voltage circuits. The ten amp fuses are for low beam. Turn on the headlamps, lo beam setting, use a test lite to check voltage on those two fuses. If no voltage may be problem with dimmer switch?

I have replaced the headlamps but dipped headlights still not working. What else could it be? fuse? Thanks, Euan


By "dipped" headlamps, do you mean the "low" beam headlamps? If so, the dimmer switch [located on the turn signal stalk] may be bad. Have you checked for power to the low beam wires at the headlamp electrical sockets? BMWs, unlike most cars, do have fuses for the headlamps, so yes, it is possible that those fuses have blown.

I have a 2006 ford escape and the passenger head light low beam will not work. Tried replacing the bulb, and check fuses nothing is working.. what else can I try?


Both your low beam and your high beam is protected by the same fuse, so it makes sense that the fuse is OK if the high beam is working on the passenger side. There are 3 fuses for the headlamps. Fuse #13 in the Battery Junction Box (20 Amp). If this fuse is blown, the headlamp relay will not have any power and neither high nor low beam on either side will work (you will have no headlamps at all) Then there is Fuses #2 and #3 (15 Amp) in the Battery Junction Box. #2 goes to the left low and high beam and #3 goes to the right low and high beam.
The headlamp switch uses a SINGLE CIRCUIT to control BOTH sides at the same time, so if one side works, the switch cannot be the problem. The headlamp relay provides power for fuses #2 and #3 and we already ascertained that these fuses must have power since we have working lights on both sides, so the relay cannot be the problem. A replacement bulb has already been tried, so that pretty much leaves us with a bad lamp socket. (Most likely cause) or a bad connection at splice #S122, which is located in the main wiring harness near the breakout for the left headlamp. (RED/BLACK wire)

Headlight on driver side of car won't come on even after replacing the bulbs. Low beam and high beam. Why???


This care is basically a Cadillac but without the badging.
Look under the hood for the main fuse block and then look for the headlamp fuses.
All four headlamps have their own fuse.

1994 ford f-150 with day time running lights headlightnot working


Daytime Running Lamps
The daytime running lamp (DRL) system is designed to turn the high beam headlamps on, with a reduced light output, and without illuminating the high beam indicator lamp in the instrument panel. You have a DRL Module.
The multifunction switch is the stalk on your column.

This is 96 F150 circuit. Don't have 94.

My headlights dont work,.all other lights are fine though,.is it the fuses or the bulbs? im not sure what fuses they would be,.there seem to be different ones for the same thing


do your flash to pass lamps light when you pull the stalk towards you? If yes, the bulbs are ok.
Do the hig beams work?
Your headlamps have sepaerate fuses for each headlamp and you have a low beam relay and a high beam relay under the hood in the black box.
If everything is out, I suspect a bad headlamp switch.
Check car-part.com and look on page with * for cheapest price.

Your owner manual will identify fuses & relays.

PS, You did not recently instal high current bulbs did you? If yes, put originals back in.

HEADLAMPS

The voltage is supplied to the lamp switch through a fuse. This fuse is located in the central junction box in the left-hand footwell.
When the headlamps are switched on, a voltage is supplied to the high beam/low beam switch and to the low beam relay. The relay for the low beam is located in the battery junction box (BJB) in the engine compartment.
If the high beam/low beam switch is set to "low beam", then a voltage is supplied through the low beam relay to the low beam part of the headlamp assembly. The left and right-hand low beams are fused separately. The fuses are located in the battery junction box (BJB) in the engine compartment.
If the high beam/low beam switch is set to "high beam", then a voltage is supplied through the high beam relay to the high beam part of the headlamp assembly. The left and right-hand high beams are fused separately. The fuses are located in the battery junction box (BJB) in the engine compartment.
