What does a burned out headlight for a dyna fxd look like?

I took the horn & hi-beam switches off my bike. I cut the wires on those switches, I did this with my bike running, headlight on, to know if I cut a wire and if it would affect anything. it did not effect anything. now my headlight does not work, the fuse is ok, don't know what a burned out hedalight looks like.

Depending on the wires you cut wires from the headlamp switch you will have no light. You will have to join the yellow and blue wires to get the headlamp on. The blue wire will have 12 volts on it, the white is high beam and the yellow is dipped beam.

The bulb glass itself usually looks burned with black and/or white distortions on the glass. the bulbs are cheap enough, just replace it with a new one. if it's not it, you'll still have a back up on hand.

i sugest doing it off of your ignition with a relay use a small amount of power to controle a bigger amount that way you wont have any problems with your lights some times when you do it off your lights it can make them not work by blowing the fuse because now you are trying to pull more volts and amps

SOURCE: accessory fuse keeps blowing, headlight not working

I know this sounds aomewhat general, however please give the following some thought:
Check your relays, if you have an aftermarket horn you may have a different relay. To troubleshoot unplug your headlight, unplug your horn, etc.. Turn your ignition switch to accessory only. See if the fuse pops. If it does unplug whatever added accessories you may have still have plugged in. Once you can get the fuse to stop popping, turn the ignition switch to on. Then one at a time plug you accessory, headlight, etc. back in. When you find what pops the fuse, unplug that item, start plugging in the other items, if the fuse has not popped you have potentially isolated the circuit causing the issue. Now check the wiring for loose connections, bad ground, and CHECK the relay if that item has one. Hope this helps,

JP

Horn doesn't blow wont crank when ignition turned on a 2003 dyna superglide


Harley horns fail. Replace the horn. If this fault has happened at the same time as engine wont crank then problem with wiring. If not then check starter relay (grey one). Also check ignition switch. Are the head lights coming on when turned on? If so the ignition switch is o/k. Connect a voltmeter to horn to check horn circuit. Accessory fuse 15 Amp supplies horn circuit and brake light and turn signal circuits so if these are working fuse o/k. Ignition/start circuit requires system relay and ECM fuse to be o/k. If fuel pump operates when run switch is activated then system relay o/k. Check start relay and circuit to start button.

Yamaha virago 250 high beam doesnt work?


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
9. Weak charging alternator/generator.
10. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

Replace battery on my dyna super glide but it won't even act like it is going to start. Everything lights up horn honks but nothing when I hit the starter. Doe it have something to do with the security...


Bypass the starter switch with heavy wire. Go from positive battery terminal to starter post to see if starter is OK, if it is check wiring. Make sure key in ON position to test, bike in Neutral. You'll know right away if starter is OK. More than likely it is the starter switch button on the handlebar. I don't know anything about the security systems, but lets' hope it is not that.

The headlights on my bike quit working. someone has been n there and done some wiring and i dont know what they did. im trying to figureout what wires do what.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the pertinent wires for the headlights of a Yamaha YZF-R6 are:
  • yellow - high beam;
  • green - lo beam;
  • red/yellow - supply to headlight relay from 20 Amps fuse;
  • white/yellow - trigger to hi headlight relay;
  • white/green - trigger to lo headlight relay.
Incidentally, it would be preferable to use a testlight when tracing +12 rather than a voltmeter.

Additionally, perhaps a wiring diagram would come in handy.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
