Question about 2003 Yamaha WR 250 F

1 Answer

Lights are incredibly dim.

Both the headlight and tail light are very, very dim. You can only tell that the tail light is burning by removing the red lens. The brake light doesn't work at all. Any ideas??

You have a bad ground in the circuit. Go thru the wiring harness and find the bad ground. Remember, a loose male to female connection can be the ground problem, not just a rusted ground wire.

2003 Pontiac Vibe no tail lights, brake lights and turn signals work just fine. The dimmer switch does not dim the dash lights but does work the dome just fineand the lights for the Heat/AC are off.


The tail lights work off the headlight switch, and there is a fuse for the tail lights. Make sure the fuse is good, first, a 15 amp (blue) fuse in the instrument panel fuse block. Then, you might have a bad headlight switch.
So you DO have dash lights, they just don't dim from the dimmer switch? In the wiring diagram, there is a green wire from a "tail light relay" (in the "Junction Block-Right Instrument Panel") that carries power to all the exterior lamps, as well as having a splice to the Instrument Panel Cluster (illum. bulbs), and to the lamp dimmer, and to the radio bulb.
To do any further testing, you would need a voltmeter or a test light, so you could chase down this power loss. Good luck.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Headlight switch on makes tail light dim


there must be a short circuit which powers tail lights and brake lights. probably you have a dual filament bulbs which have both brake and tail light together. check for bulb, socket/or bulb housing and harness of that light.

My brake light is burning my headlight out do you have any suggestions


You mean the brake light is melting the plastic on the lens of the brake light? The head light is up front, It should not be coming on when you step on the brake, or be burning it out in any way, if it is, you got a major wiring problem. I think somebody put in a bulb that is too big, See it all the time, One is brighter than the other, check out the dim one and match it up on the other side. Hope this helps.

Tail lights wont burn & left head light is dim


Check the headlight switch,for a no light's failure.
Check all of the wiring for damage ,especially underneath the truck,and check for a good ground.
light's to the body ,body to the frame.
Also, check all connection's for corrosion.

I have a 95 pontiac bonneville ssei and the tail lights dash lights and turn signals were not working. i replaced the headlight switch and a fuse and my tail lights and dash lights come on now, but when i...


you have a dead short in the wiring harness. Easiest way to diagnose is remove tail/parking bulbs and systematically replace them one at a time. When you replace them, not buy new ones just unplug them, your problem circuit will be when the lamps go dim. That's your short.

Let me know how it goes!

P.s. is the 666 because of the 3 b's in bobbie? Carefull, one's irthday is 12,22,12 may get upset. lol

99 neon running tail lights do not work but tail lights work when brakes are applied....help


what you are seeing is the bright filament on the bulb working,
the tail light bulbs have two filaments in each bulb,one is dim and one is bright,the bright one is to the brake and turn signals,that way when you step on the brake with the tail lights on the same lens light up brighter to warn drivers behind you..
you need to check the fuses in the car for tail lights first,see if your plate light is on that will tell you the bulbs are just blown

When i put front brake on no back light and headlight goes dim


Check the battery to make sure it is not failing.
The headlight will work even if the battery is not holding a charge.
Basically running off the alternator.
Hitting the brake activates a draw of current which will dim the headlight.
Brake light may or may not work. Check the fuses and make sure there are no shorts in the wires running to the tail light. Check bulb also to make sure it is has not burned out.
