Question about 2005 kawasaki EN 500 Vulcan
If push button start button not working, will it cause headlight not to work? I can jump across solenoid and it starts, but no headlight..It is a 1994 kaw 500 vulcan m/c..
Sounds like a bad relay... the relay switches all power to the solenoid to start the bike... when you let off of the starter it turns the lights etc back on. If the relay goes bad... starter button will not work, and no power to the headlight/taillight/dashlights... the relay is fairly cheep, 10 to 15 bucks....so its a pretty cheap test to see if that is what is wrong.
