Headlight and tail light is not working

I just bought a 2001 Suzuki marauder and after a few rides, headlight and taillight stopped working (they worked perfectly when purchasing). I don't have any other electrical problems and the fuses are correct.

SOURCE: My signal lights, hazard lights, and tail light aren't working.

Check the rear bulbs.If they are working (brakes+lights) check the wires.For the turn signals, override the flasher relay.If they are coming on then you need to replace the relay.If not then check the left hand side clip on switch.

SOURCE: Rear tail lights and running lights not working.

Make sure that the rear light fuse is not blown
If not trace the brown wire from the rear lights & check for continuity between lamp holder & fuse
As its both rear lights & front sidelights it will not be an earth fault

Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

SOURCE: electrical wiring short troubleshooting

You almost certainly have a bad coonnection somewhere, have a look behind the headlight to start with. Really, you need to do some electrical fault finding with a multi tester. Try to pin point exactly when the fuse is blowing - ie when u switch something on, or when you start up..... Some times the tank of these can rub o hole in the wiring loom underneath - check there. There are many electrical `potential` probs with gs`s but they can be rectified. Try the GSRESOURCE site for more assistance.

Firebird tail lights


It is a ground problem. When you turn on your headlights, they are sharing the same ground that your brake and T/S lights are using. Check all ground connections to the body from all headlight and taillight wiring are connected and tight. If it doesn't affect your taillights, it may be in your T/S switch. Check your ground connections first.

1988 s10 fuses have no tail lights


Had a 1988 s10 with the opposite problem. Had taillights but no headlights. Turns out that only part of the headlight switch had gone out. It allowed the tail lights and all other lights to work but not the headlights. replacing the headlight switch fixed the problem. Perhaps the switch on yours has went out just on the opposite side that mine did. That switch operates both head and tail lights. Check for power at the tail lights. If there is no power there, check that all the fuses are good. Replace any you find that are blown. If you still have no power, replace the headlight switch. If there is power at the tail lights, clean or replace the bulb sockets.

Marauder GZ125 98 - dead, no lights, no power, nothing.


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

1998 valkrie wont turn over


Your battery is most likely the cause. The tail light and dash light do not draw much juice from the battery. However the headlight and starter are a different story. Are you absolutely sure you turned everything off before you took your break? If you are and you don't ride your bike a lot you should get a trickle charger for it. Use it when not riding. It will prevent you battery from completely losing it's charge thus protecting the battery.
If you do ride often then you should have the battery tested. You may need a new one. Remember that once a battery has been drained too low, permanent damage can occur.

Lights flashing, then not working at all


From what you are describing it sounds as if the headlight switch has gone bad.  That switch controls not only the headlights but the tail lights and all dash lights.  Everything that IS working is connected to other switches not related to the headlight switch.  You can either buy a new one or get a used one from a junk yard or ebay.  Pay particular attention when getting a replacement as there are 3 different models which vary depending on options such as Auto mode and Foglights.   Replacement is easy.  Using a flat screwdriver carefully pry off the trim cover around the switch. The switch is held in with some screws.  Be careful disconnecting the wires so as not to break the locking tabs. The trim just pushes firmly back into place.
