Just check the wiring in the switch housing on your control sets. The contacts inside sometimes oxidize in the old hondas, stopping a good connection. A quick rub with a wire brush will sort it out if that's the case. Lovely looking bike BTW.

How to find an electrical disturbance in 1998 ford expedition


Normally this condition is the result of a poor body ground connection. Testing for this can be deceiving. At the static(nothing on) condition, testing can show a good ground. However when a circuit is excited, it has a determined resistance and a set current flow. If the ground connection to this or a branch circuit is loose, corroded, or broken wire. This will allow just enough connection to show as being good, but not good enough to complete the circuit with the required amount of connection when energized.

I have a 2004 Honda shadow Aero 750. Bike starts fine, but no headlight, checked fuse.. is good. But the high beam indicator doesnt even show the blue light on the tank when high beams switched on. Any...


It could be the headlight bulb, the headlight switch or a worn/broken wire to the headlight. I would take out the headlight bulb and see if you can see a break in the filament. You could also use a jumper wire and test it with a 12 volt battery. If the headlight checks out ok, I would take a 12 volt tester and see if you have voltage at the headlight plug.

Good Luck

03 bmw r1150 rt blowing low beam fuse


Hi, Joseph put in another fuse and start wiggling wires in the light circuit if your headlight is not working the first thing to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.

You need to replace headlight switch - if fuses, bulbs, wiring looks good. Avoid the toggle switch idea, you'll be opening a whole new can of worms.

I don't have a wiring diagram ,but on most cars I would say your low beam bulb is bad. Try swapping sides to see if the problem goes with it, or just replace the bulb. You can always keep the new one until needed someday... shadetree mech by necessity.

Headlight


violet i have checked the ground at the headlight and it is good. I also get no power at the yellow wire coming from the stator i do get power from the white wire coming from the stator. If i disconnect the wires from the headlight i then get no power from the white wire off the stator. if i disconect the yellow wire from the stator i also get no power from the white off the stator all connections seem to be fine and the bike runs great. the bulb is good please help! thanks all.,It sounds like you may have lost the stator ground or one of the windings is open. Measure the resistance from the yellow wire to ground and from the white wire to ground. Each winding should be less than 1 ohm to ground. You should also be able to measure resistance across the white and yellow leads. Here again, less than 1 ohm. __________________,,,
