SOURCE: Bike Died - No Power

i would check if you have a short somewhere.....but first make sure your battery connections are tight....gauges turning off and on while riding is usually a sign of a loose connection meaning you hit a bump or something and it briefly clips out...did the bike actually turn off??? i dunno....but that seems to be a very odd problem....take out the battery, put it on a trickle and let it charge to full cap....then reconnect making sure the terminal connections are secure and see what happens.... if that works, we''ll have to start diagnosing further, but like they always say, check the obvious first !

sounds like a poor ground issue, pull out the headlight and check all connections in there, your turn signals are on seperate feeds than the lights but they will probably share the same ground/earth in the headlight

SOURCE: i have no working headlights and my bike wont start with the push button but will start and run with a push i checked all fuses and connections i could find all are good any suggestions thank you

Headlights and, starter motors require more amps (power) than the blinkers and, taillights
so: jump your battery before you tear into the wiring
If it still doesn't start or, light up
I'll help you troubleshoot the wiring

Sounds like you have a ground fault. I once had a car with a faulty ground wire on the headlight, when I put high beam on the speedo would jump to 170km/h and the indicators would glow dimly. Sure sounds like a similar ground fault to me, check all the ground straps, from the headlight or anywhere else you can think of.

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.

First of all are your headlights a double filament type headlight? If yes then I would suspect that a power wire to the high beams is broken or shorted. If your high beams are a separate set of lights from your regulars running lights then either the high beams headlights are missing. or has a broken power wire or shorted or...You could check the fuse box under your dash and under the hood of the car to see if you have a fuse for the high beam lights.

Low beam headlights dont work


Generally that happens when your low beam bulbs burn out. I have had that happen a couple of times, no warning, no indication leading up to it.

I would just replace the bulbs.

2005 Dodge Magnum low beams do not work


Obviously you have a connector which has come partially apart somewhere between the Headlights and the Headlight Switch. Most modern vehicles have several connectors between the Headlight Switch and the Headlights, Start at the Firewall Connector and work forward toward the Headlights making sure all connectors are securely mated. Another remote possibility is that you have fractured the "Low Beam Filaments" in BOTH Headlights. You don't mention how hard you hit the Speed Bump but if it caused the car to "Bottom Out" the front suspension it was a hard enough impact to fracture the filaments. You can use a 12 Volt Test Light at the Sockets for the Headlight Bulbs and see if you are getting 12 Volt power there. If you are in Low Beam position you have fractured the filaments. Check with High Beam too.

The high beam indicator is on. The low beams don't work.


You need a new headlight dimmer switch located on the steering column between the dash and the firewall

My cbr 954 rr headlight both high beam and low beam & high beam blue indicator light does not work ! no headlight at all ! taillights blinkers and gauge lights are good! is this just the fuse?


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.
