Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Depending on the version, normally there would be two (2) relays for most Kawasakis that control the headlight(s). Often the hi-lo relays (with white connectors) would be behind the gauges. Again depending on the model, some would not have a headlight on/park/off but only hi-lo as the headlights automatically switch on when the engine is running.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Headlight not working on 1979 dodgr intrepid replaced the headlight switch

You mean a 97 model, right ?
I'm looking at 1998 wiring diagrams because I don't have a good set for a 97 but it should be the same.
Its somewhat complicated, so you may need to get a used shop manual to get all of the wiring diagrams to be able to check the circuits.
There is a park lamp relay in the circuit and the body computer is involved too.
There are both high and low beam relays used after the dimmer switch. And each circuit has its own fuse.
The headlight switch generally controls the relays rather than powering the lights directly.

Headlights wont work

According to my wiring diagram, the headlight switch works a relay which is powered by two different fuses.
I would check the relay for voltage first.
You may need a repair manual to trace the circuits.

I put a new grill on my 1998 gmc Sierra and when I put the headlights back on and tested them out all the power is directed to the passenger side lights and the other side is dim!! Also when I turn my left...

The first thing i would check is the ground, check the driverside lights ground wire, this wire is bolted on the same side you will need to look around that area for that ground or run a new ground wire to the lights and see if that does it, as far as the wipers turnning on this may be due to the ground problem, i would first locate the light problem and go from there, check the connection for both the lights.

Headlight wire connection melted n causing light to go off

First. I would go to the library and pu a chiltons/moter
or mitchells repair manual with wiring diagrams. Then
I would put the wiring back to factory specs. Then I
would deal with the problem that caused somone
to mickey mouse the light wires. It may be a headlight switch/dimmer switch or the drl module
(daytime running lights) maybe a short or bad conn.
But I can't tell you with any degree of accuracy,
what to check to diagnose the problem you're having.
With the wiring the way it is and not able to see it.
As for whats happening now, check any taped connections for a short also you'll need to replace
the melted socket. But when you install the socket
also install a 20amp inline fuse to the +power wire
to the socket. This will help avoid any more meltdown
until you're ready to wire it back to normal, just keep
some spare fuses handy. Free food for thought.
Good luck.

Turn signals

You need to check the wires coming from the headlight switch. Also if you have a pug on the back for a trailer check it also. I have seen in the past wires that melted together from a short and it causes circuits to connect and work together.
