    Have you checked the fuses? Normally the headlight is not on the same fuse as the other lights.

I am restoring a 1982 Yamaha Virago 750. The OEM horns were shot so I replaced them with standard 12 automotive horns. The problem is that when I push tht horn button with both horns connected, the system won't deliver enough power to run them. However if I disconnect either horn, the other one will work. It seems like the system can't deliver enough current for one. If I connect the two horns direct to the battery they work jsut fine. Is this an electrical system problem (diode, regulator, horn switch, bad ground?) or should I rewire with an aftermarket relay for the horns?

I just took my 2006 Harley sportster 1200 out for a spin, it's nighttime and I noticed my headlight wasn't on yet it worked with high beams on. I tried the horn and that doesn't work as well....

You horn and lights are not connected to each other. If the light works on high it should work on dip- replace the bulb. And check the horn connections are good and clean. To see if the horn is good, put a "live" to the horn "+" contact. If it works your switch has failed. if it doesn't, the horn has failed.

I have a 2005 Harley Road King Custom. With ignition switch on, I have horn, brake lights and instrument light. I don't hear fuel pump, turn signals don't work; headlight doesn't work and

Hi Mark, I would start by checking fuses first located behind the left side panel. Then check for continuity at your system/fuel pump relay also in that same general area, check the connection at the turn signal module and for continuity at the ignition switch and your high/low beam switch. This is assuming of course that your security alarm has been disabled. for more information on your question please visit the websites below and good luck:

I have 2005 softail as listed,was bought used,someone replaced front forks due to being in accident.the only thing not working is front running and turn signal lights. Passing lights work,headlight works....

No, the TSM does not have this function in it. It controls nothing but the turn signals. Whoever wired the passing lights in used the wire for the high beam light as a power wire for the passing lights. This was probably done so that they would not overload the charging system. If you have the high beam light and the passing lights on, it's a tremendous draw on the charging system and it may have caused a fuse to blow. So, they probably wired the passing lights to operate without the high beam light. I think the wire is white for the high beam.

Good Luck

Indicator problems, Kawasaki ZXR 750 91'

try a new flasher can, if you remove it and jump the two wires together, the indicators should come on but not flash when you move the lever, check the fuse as well, though youve probably done that

High beam indicator light (the blue idiot light) doesn't come on when high beam switch and high beam is on and funcitioning on my '93 Virago 535. Just a bulb or something more sinister. Horn also does not...

check the bulb first, it powerd from the same circuit as the headlight so it shouldnt be a fuse, The horn may be an unrelated problem.
You will need a test light and check for power at the horn wire, and the indicator light

Check your fuse then try again. Do not forget to check your main fuse- the ribbon type (30Amp)

If the headlight goes out on my 82 virago 750 will the horns not work and should the high beam indicator still come on even if the headlight is blown

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On your electrical questions for a Virago 750:
  • if the headlight goes out will the horns not work - yes, the horns should still work;
  • should the high beam indicator still come on even if the headlight is blown - yes, even if the headlight bulb has burned out.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

84 honda shadow 700 vt lights are unpredictable

There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!
