First, test for voltage at the plug that attaches to the headlight, if you have voltage at each terminal when set to it's respective hi or low position it could only be your headlight. If you don't have voltage then you need to work back from the wire to the switch and etc etc

SOURCE: My headlight is inop on my 1993 750 nighthawk, I

The two most likely culprits are the ignition switch and the starter button. The starter button, in the right handlebar switch assembly, performs two functions: cranks the electric starter - and, at the same time, turns off the headlight. Sometimes the electrical contacts inside the starter button burn out and fail to reconnect the headlight circuit when the button is released.
You can easily determine which one is the problem by simply checking for battery voltage at the headlight fuse. No voltage means the likely cause is the ignition switch. Also inspect the large plug on the bottom of the ignition switch. Sometimes the individual connectors will corrode, melt, or push themselves out of the plastic housing.
If there's voltage at the headlight fuse, then plan on replacing the right handlebar switch assembly.

Yes - and there is a fuse for just those items. The other possible cause is a bad starter button. When you push the start button, it does two things: activates the electric starter - and cuts power to the headlight until the button is released. So, if it isn't the fuse, it's probably the start button.

SOURCE: Have 2007 honda sabre 1100

I have a 2007 Honda Sabre. I rode it 3 weeks ago with apparently no problems. I went it start it last night. The only time I could and still can only get it to run is with the choke fully open. Whenever I back it off, it stalls. It seems to not get anything for the throttle as either. I tried Seafoam and did not get immediate results. Waiting to see if this works. I read on another post that it could be clogged jet. That is why I used Seafoam.

I think the hi beam indicator is telling you, you have a bad head light bulb.

I have a 84 Honda NightHawk 700s and I turn on my bike and the headlight does not turn on unless I hit the hi beam switch, what could be wrong in the wiring?


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working the first thing 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 to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.

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.

My headlights wont work


I don't believe there is a fuse. There is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. If you are sure the headlight switch is good, it could be a bad dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, with the headlight switch turned on, a larger yellow wire going from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch should be a hot wire. The dimmer switch sends power on a tan wire to the low beams, and through a light green wire to the high beam bulbs.
If your high beam indicator on the dash also doesn't work, then it is likely one of those switches. A voltmeter or test light would need to be used to find which one is bad. If you can find the connector at the steering column going to the dimmer switch, pull it apart and check for power on the yellow wire coming from the headlight switch, with the headlight switch turned on. If no power, the headlight switch is bad. If there is power there, then the dimmer switch must be bad.

Why wont the headlights won't go on


It can have a bad headlight switch, but most often it is a bad high beam switch on the floor.

Turn on the headlights and press the high-beam switch off and on a few times, if the headlights flash, flicker, or start working again then replace the high-beam/dimmer switch.

My 87 k5 blazer headlights don't turn on when the car is started and running any more... all 4 headlights turn on fine when I pull the lever all the way out for high beams


The vehicle should not have to be running for head lights to burn.If high beams work,then the low beam head lights could be burned out,even though they light up with high beams.The dimmer switch,can be the problem if the head lights only work on high beam.

High beams wont turn on.


First place to start is with headlight switch. I did have a case many years ago when both high beams were blown out at once, but this is rare. When you have the headlight switch out, jump power from te low beams to the high beam contacts. If high beams come on, replace switch.
