Question about 1985 Honda VT 500 C Shadow
I noticed my tail light is not working, and my seat isn't cooperating. I cant get my seat off at all. Is that the only way to get to the tail light?

Did you just replace the bulb with the LED? If so, you probably got the wrong bulb. Make sure it is a 2 circuit bulb like an 1157 dual filament.

Check the bulb first, check fuses, thn check if theres 'live' current to the brake light wire to the bulb socket (using a tester).
If theres no 'live' current to the bulb socket thn proceed to the brake light switch and check for the 'live' current to the wires there, one of the wires there should have a 'live' current of course having the igntion switch 'on'.
If theres is 'live' current there, thn the switch is faulty it may just need cleaning, try to clean by using WD-40,if it doesn't help thn replace it.
If you still have no 'live' current on any of the wires to the brake switch thn trace the wire (color) from the rear light socket and follow to the fuse box / ignition switch.
Hope this helps!

This is what is known as a dual filament bulb.
One bulb that has two lights inside the glass.
Usually one of the filaments will burn out, requiring you to replace the entire bulb.
Hope this helps.

Ensure the bulb is correctly fitted!!
You must have a foot hand brake switch mal-adjusted / faulty. back them both off (If possible) and it should extinguish.
Does it still work with headlamps off?? If so then one of the switches are faulty / need adjusting.
