My 250 vt 1999 turn key on headlights everything works! when I press start button headlight goes out and bike dosnt start, take finger off start button head light comes back on.

Your starter button is designed to turn the headlight off when pushed in halfway so all the batteries electricity goes to the starter. The starter button is a two position switch. The starter button may be either dirty and need cleaning or is broken and needs to be replaced. If you push the button all the way in do you hear a click? If you hear a click by the battery , then the starter button is good. Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. With an old screw driver or a piece of wire touch the two terminal posts on the starter solenoid together. If your starter works now you have a bad starter solenoid. If you hold the starter button and lightly tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, then you probably need to replace your starter brushes they are worn out.

Head light died while driving low or high beam does not work not power to the fuse

You have a two position switch in the starter button. Push the button halfway in and the lights go out so all the power goes to the starter and ignition system for starting. Push the button all the way in and the starter engages. I suspect the button is either broken or dirty causing the lights not to work ( it is stuck in the halfway in position ) Try cleaning ,bypassing , or replacing to see if it fixes the problem.

I have a silver fox 50 scooter with an eletricial issue if you turn the key to on and push the start button it won't start if you turn the key to on and kick start it runs fine the battery is charged also...

sounds like start button lost power. the starter is grounded to the engine, as the pos runs to the switch wich is hot only with the key on, you follow me?
