Hi Russ,

I will tell you what fixed this on my CBR.

You need to open up the push button starter switch located on the right handlebar as your sitting on the bike. You know the button I'm talking about. Its the button you push to make the bike turn over.

Take this switch assembly off the bike or let it hang from the handlebars so you can get to the wires inside of it.

Their are like 2 or three screws holding this piece to the handlebars and they are hard to see but they are their.

Alright alright once you have it off you are probably going to notice right away that one of the wires has broke its soldering connection to the circuit board. This is your headlight wire. If you just take a screwdriver and press the wire back onto the contact on the board your headlights will light right up. So all you need to do now is solder this back onto the contact on the board.

On my bike it didn't last because I do tons of wheelies and it just shook apart my solder job over time. What I did was soldering in a little longer piece of wire to the end of the broken contact wire to give it a little extra leighway and its been holding strong.

Well I really hope this helps and if it does please give me a fixya rating,
AadoubleA

Which fuse should i change for my headlights ?


Look at your fuse panel board either under the dash board on drivers side or possibly under the hood depending on vehicle. It will tell u which fuse is for the headlights.

Or from the sounds of it... Possible head light bulb burnt out and not a fuse. A headlight fuse should not be popping or burning out. I would suggest looking at the filament on the bulb to see if intact. Replace broken head light bulb with working other working headlight to eliminate one possibility. If it works buy a new bulb. If it doesn't look at fuse panel.

2000 Pontiac Grand Am headlight not working but the turn signal is. I changed the bulb but still nothing, how do I fix this?


You either have an elecrical problem or your you might have a fuse blown beacuse the signal and the head light it self work off of two seperate fuses witch means if the head light fuse is blown them the signal will still work. So what I would do first is I would check the fuses and the best way to check the fuses is to have a check light.

Head lights work, brake lights work, blinkers work, tail lights dont, replaced all fuses and bulbs


did you change any relays  swap some relays to see if you can get the tail lights working but something else will fail    do you mean marker lights  make sure you used the correct bulb type  many are dual filament bulbs and will not work right if you used single filament bulbs
