Hi Mando, you need to get out your test light and find the short and start by making sure the battery has 12 volts or more and clean tight connections especially the ground cable at both ends. If your issues involves lights always check the bulbs for broken filiments and fuses first. Then start at the socket and work your way towards the handlebar switches checking each wiring harness connector for corroded, broken or loose pins and remember dielectric grease is your friend. Check the switches for continuity and work your way towards the ignition switch and check it for continuity. Keep working your way to the fuses and circuit breaker and finally the battery.

Sorry but I don't have a wiring diagram that I can send you but I may can offer a bit of help.

Your passing lamps are simply wired into a hot circuit somewhere. A lot of schematics don't show them because they are considered "add ons". They also may have a fuse inline with the "hot" wire. They have only one wire that connects them to the bike with the rest being inside the "light bar" itself. Find the wire coming out of the center of the "light bar" and trace it back to where it hooks up. Sorry but that's the best I can do on this one.

On your front brake light, there is a switch located inside your right hand switch housing where your throttle is located. It is a plunger type switch that is activated when you pull the front brake lever. A simple test of the switch is to loosen the bolts of the master cylinder and slide it towards the center of the handlebars. If the switch is good, the brake light will come on. If the switch is bad, it will not.

To get to the switch, you'll have to take the right hand switch housing apart. First, loosen the throttle cables at the adjusters and then remove the two bolts that hold the switch housing halves together. Carefully open up the switch housing. You will see the small switch in the front of the housing. You'll have to desolder the wires, replace the switch with a new one, and resolder the wires to the new switch.

Reassembly is the reverse of the disassembly. Make sure you slide the master cylinder all the way back against the switch housing or the brake light will stay on constantly. Readjust the throttle cables and check for proper operation. You don't want your throttle sticking.

Good Luck
Steve

Why wont the Headlight and Highbeam indicator wont work


Does the headlight itself work? Will it switch from low beam to high beam? If the lights work but just the indicator is bad, then perhaps the problem is in the indicator socket (corrosion or loose connection) or the wiring to the indicator (bad connector, break in the wire or printed circuit board trace). If the lights don't work, it could be the handlebar switch is failing but it's more likely to be the wiring coming from the bars to the handlebar pivot area.

Headlight on my jmstar scooter will not come on


Operate the dimmer switch--does one beam come on? Check inside the headlight shell and examine the wiring from the lamp socket into the handlebar and main harness wiring. If individual connectors, check that the colors match at each connector. If you can't find any problem, then the wiring is mis-connected. Make sure the lamp socket is connected to ground.

Headlight not working but bulb is good battery is good also. where can i look to find out what is wrong


I'm not familiar with this particular bike, but on many Japaneeese bikes the headlight voltage routes through the starter switch in the right handlebar assembly. It opens the voltage path to the light while the starter is powered.
It goes through a number of connectors in the harness on its way there from the fusebox, and then to the headlight.
A voltmeter and the electrical schematic (Haynes manual) should help locate the open circuit. Also check the lamp socket(s) for corrosion and overheated terminals.

I have a 2002 sportster. The problem I have is intermiant and what happens is both signal indicators as well as the high beam head lamp indicator comes on (steady), the head light is not on and I have lost...


check for a break in the wiring on the left side of handlebar where wiring exits switch housing,sounds like wire(from headlight switch/signals) arcing to a ground(possibly handlebar)

Hi Keeto, the factory wiring is designed so the passing lamps on come on with the low beam, and go off when the high beam is activated they didn't want to blind oncoming drivers. You need to run the passing lamp wires to a seperate switch if you want total control. Good luck and have nice day.

Passing lamps won't come on


Passing lights. check all of the fuses, replace any fuse that's burned or cut in the middle. Flasher relay could also be the problem.
