More than likely it is your reserve lighting device, located on the right side of the battery box. also test battery voltage at rest, then start and recheck with a volt rest should be at 12 or a bit over, cranked should be at around 13 or 14, rev engine, you should be at 14 or more, had same issue on a 92' ended up being stator was going bad, and rectifier was replaced.

you can remove the head light bulb, power the bulb with a charger or check it with voltmeter. if bulb is good, make sure the ground is good on the light housing. if fuses are good, could be the actual switch on the handlegrips

SOURCE: 2001 kaw Vulcan 1500 will not start. new battery, starter relay

Check continuity at the kill switch? sidestand switch? Either could be malfunctioning. What does your manual tell you about the starter relay circuit?

SOURCE: Headlight not working...bulb and fuse are good

check fuses first... if ok, buy an electrical tester from walmart for $5 and see if it's getting any electrical to the headlight.. if it is.. replace bulb

It's at least a good starting point.

New headlight switch installed same problem no headlights fuses good under front hood is there a fuse box in trunk for the headlights

there could be a black plastic box that has fuses but also you will find relays. From the relay you can find the socket that feeds 12v directly into the headlight and see if headlight is ok and if the relay is suppling 12v to the headlight. Also from the relay you can also check if the switch is supplying 12v to the relay coil with a voltmeter or a 12 volt probe tester. you may have a faulty relay but you could test this via a volt meter.
you may have blown globes by getting a wire and putting terminal connectors that match the relay legs and manually supplying the 12volts to the headlights from the relay socket you can test if the globes light up . So basically you are doing the relays job

Headlight low beams (both sides) suddenly stopped working. High beams and all other lights fine, fuses fine. 12v present at low beam fuse when switched on.

How do two bulbs burn out at the same time? - makes no sense! If sure that the fuse is definitely good, then check out the power switch and/or relay that feeds the low beams - it could be bogus.

2000 Isuzu rodeo headlights not working

daytime, running lights are mandatory there, not in USA !!!
ILL NOT GUESS ! (is that what you want, just wild guessing?)
just the head lights fail?
on high beam, slows and flashed? yes?
and all else is ok (even engine runs and car drives ok>?)
no power, what does that mean, using a voltmeter?

exterior fuse, my guess that means engine by fuse box,.
PDC, real name , names dont matter, but locations do..
my guess, is there are lot of things dead, not just head lights
but they are #1 first fix.why because they operator KEY OFF.and are a primary power feed.

so does battery have 12.6vdc rested.
are the battery terminals cleaned? all 4 ends. (not short it fiddling it)
if yes, then check the power in the PDC box.

ill look at for you, just a moment.....
(the schematics are best to use fixing any car)

ill pretend all else is ok, just HL failed, dead.(hi/lo)
HL 101:
the main box, must be hot, 12v there. HL ON.
the HL relay must close HL turned on.
The HL relay feeds 2 fuses next LEFT and RIGHT HL
if both fuses are hot, the ReLAY is good.

the engine bay fuse box EB has a 100am fuse and 50amp
both must be hot, both sides, hot means 12vd.
is it ?
that is first. as you told me there is no power external, so
i assUme the box is dead.
if not dead, then the relay is next.

see below your HL schematic
see relay see pin 2,
pin 2 must be 0volts headlights on.
if not the switch is bad below left or ground to it lost.
lets pretend it is 0v.
so we check relay pin 1 (output)
it must be 12vdc or the relay is bad.
pin 2 is 12v.
as is pin 5 at all times (called hot all the time )
these above steps finds all both HL dead. (not fuse blown)

Having trouble getting headlight to come on

Headlight will not come on until bike is running and charging system is functioning properly. Three things come to mind:
1. The charging system may not be working and therefore not triggering the relay in the junction box.
2. The headlight relay in the junction box may have gone bad.
3. The fuse may be blown.

If you suspect the relay, you can bypass it by moving the blue wire to the empty hole in the plug going to the junction box. This will make the headlight come on when the key is turned on instead of when the motor starts.

2001 Kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Drifter wiring diagram

Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright 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 headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil.
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

My push button start switch not working on M/C..

Sounds like a bad relay... the relay switches all power to the solenoid to start the bike... when you let off of the starter it turns the lights etc back on. If the relay goes bad... starter button will not work, and no power to the headlight/taillight/dashlights... the relay is fairly cheep, 10 to 15 its a pretty cheap test to see if that is what is wrong.

Rear lights not working on 2002 suzuki grand vitara

In the underdash fuse/relay box, the 15A TAIL fuse feeds power to the coil of headlight relay 2. When the combination switch is set to TAIL, the relay closes and the outer tail lamps light. In the same underdash fuse/relay box, the 20A STOP fuse feeds power to the brake light switch. When the brake pedal is pressed, the inner brake lamps light. The underdash fuse/relay box also contains the 10A TURN BACK fuse which feeds power to the hazard switch and the turn signal relay. Relay output is fed to the combination switch and turn signal power is applied to the selected middle tail light. The fourth fuse in the underdash fuse/relay box is the 15A HAZARD fuse which feeds power to the hazard switch and turn signal relay. When the hazard switch is set, the turn lamps on both sides begin flashing.

Low beam head lights not working - The low beams, both stopped working. The high beams work fine. I checked the fuses and all 4 are good. I even swapped the low and high beam fises just in case. No...

if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals
