Question about 2001 BMW F 650 Dakar
Like I said an awkward place to work
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

Can you take apart headlight and measure voltage at low beam socket when bulb is not working? If there is not 12 V nominal at the socket, then the wiring or ZFE is defective. Your bike should still be under warranty??
I have seen one bike that had an intermittent ZFE control module and the high beam was intermittent. Ended up replacing the control module to fix it.
