    The headlight bulb fuses very often, even tried Lumax Halogen bulb but the problem is still there. Checked H.L bulb connection, bulb holder etc.- all ok, no loose connections. The bulb burns out while changing from High beam to Low beam. Is the dimmer switch faulty? Please suggest remedy. Thanks in advance.

Had a similar problem on mine when I installed the cobra light bar. If you remove the headlight from the housing there is a connector (think it was orange) with a single wire. It is the starter-light cutout. my connector shorted out so I had to cut it and replace it. No headlight problems since. It is worth checking, I had to pay $50 to have the Honda shop find it. Good luck & ride safe!

I have a 2004 Honda shadow Aero 750. Bike starts fine, but no headlight, checked fuse.. is good. But the high beam indicator doesnt even show the blue light on the tank when high beams switched on. Any...


It could be the headlight bulb, the headlight switch or a worn/broken wire to the headlight. I would take out the headlight bulb and see if you can see a break in the filament. You could also use a jumper wire and test it with a 12 volt battery. If the headlight checks out ok, I would take a 12 volt tester and see if you have voltage at the headlight plug.

Good Luck

Fuses, check all of them. Check relays, sometimes tapping with the handle of a screwdriver will get a faulty one to work intermittenly. Check dimmer switch and light switch. IF you have driven through water with leaking headlight benzels/covers, then water may have blown both. Im leaning towards fuses/relays or light switch.

Headlight keeps blowing out 1996 yamaha virago 1100


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.

I have a 2006 mercedes e320CDi Headlight intermittent fault


hi this sounds like you might have a relay that is on the blink, even though it only does it to one of the lights , this is because they are on separate circuit from each other, you will have to locate your fuse box and find the headlight relay, it should be clearly marked on the cover, and try changing it out, or.. you might just have a loose or corroded wire to the plug on the back of the headlight itself, pull the plug off the back of the headlight and examine it for a greenish type powder if you do find that the wires may be water logged and might need replacing from a certain point on the loom, or just clean the plug first and see how you go, some electrical contact grease is ideal....hope this helps

NO LOW BEAM, EVERYTHING CHECKS OK . I HAVE CHECKED ALL BULBS AND FUSES


Hi,
The simple answer may be that the low beam side is burnt out. Replace the bulb.
However, if both headlights have stopped working when switching to low beams, there may be a problem with the relay or the switch itself. If the cost of a relay is low for your car, it may be less expensive to simply replace that component than to have it diagnosed in a repair shop. Replacement of the switch requires some disassembly of the steering column or dash in most vehicles.
This is how to fix the low beam..
1.Check your fuses. The plastic panel covering the fuses should have a diagram detailing what each fuse covers. If yours is missing, or unlabeled, check your owner's manual, or a Hanes(tm) or Chilton(tm) repair manual. Often if a headlight is not working, it is the result of a blown fuse. Fuses have a wire running through them that will melt when too much current is run through them. If the fuse is blown, the wire will be broken. If the fuse for the headlight you are working on has an intact wire, it is likely the problem lies elsewhere.
2.Swap the headlight for its twin. If your left headlight does not work, put the light from your right headlight in its place. If it works with the other headlight in place, your headlight bulb is dead, and needs to be replaced.
3.If this does not work, try using a voltmeter on the plug for the bad headlight. Turn on the ignition, and turn the headlight switch. If the voltmeter shows no current, then either your switch or the wiring leading to the headlight has gone bad.
4.If replacing your headlight switch does not solve the problem, then there is a break in the wiring leading to the headlight, and the wiring will need to be replaced.

Headlight problem


try the fuse. although i would think if its a fuse then the beam light would not work either, but check anyway, or it could be a bad ground / earth on the lighting circuit

Replacing headlight bulb


AutoZone.com has lots of information like this. Unfortunately, they want engine size and other information I don't have before providing the information. Here's the link:

Also, check the owner's manual. I changed a headlight in a car last week and was surprised to find that the owner's manual had detailed instructions.
