    I know this is kind of old but hopefully it will help someone. Endel is correct about the breaker being built into the fuse block. The fuse block is a sealed unit and nonserviceable, but If you take a jumper wire from the headlight fuse and connect it to the blue and yellow striped wire at the connector the healight should turn on. This is only a test to make sure there is power to the lines. If the lights work then you'll need a new fuse block from Kawasaki, or find another power souce on the bike to hook into and make sure you fuse the new wire source for the headlight.

You have to have at least 9 volts to turn the head light relay on it is usually a regulator rectifier or bad stator that causes this, the relay is part of the fuse box assy .

Replaced the head lamp bulb but only works on high beam


Make sure the other filament is good and that it is receiving power. If no power check relays, fuses, switches,etc for low beams.

Head Lamps ON my 2000 Buick LeSabre quit working - Brites only work IF I hold Lever in , ALL other Lites work. ALL Fuses n Relays good Should I replace Lamp switch ?


Hi Ricky, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Ricky, if the high beams work when you hold the lever in, then its the high beam switch NOT the light switch. The lever controls the high and low beams. You need the multi-function switch which is also the dimmer switch. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website at: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Low beam not working


I would look at the headlight switch test the switch at the connector for continuity and or voltage.Always look at the simple and easiest areas first, bulbs, fuses, relays, then the wiring to the switches, then the switch.

Well the high and low beam lamps use the same fuses, and the dimmer switch handles the ground circuit. So I would check the dimmer switch if both high beam bulbs are ok.

1996 dodge Ram 1500 4x4 headlights dont work.All other lights work. Headlight lamps are all good. Could it be the switch or the multifunction switch? High beam works when I pull on the directional le


The headlight switch gets power for the headlights from a 50amp fuse.
The fuse powers the headlight switch then the dimmer switch breaks for high and low beams. So if the high beams work, the problem may be with the dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch is made into the turn signal switch on the column. You would need to check the low and high beam circuits at the switch for power.

Low beam head lights not working - The low beams, both stopped working. The high beams work fine. I checked the fuses and all 4 are good. I even swapped the low and high beam fises just in case. No...


if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and grounds.you also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals

1994 ford f-150 with day time running lights headlightnot working


Daytime Running Lamps
The daytime running lamp (DRL) system is designed to turn the high beam headlamps on, with a reduced light output, and without illuminating the high beam indicator lamp in the instrument panel. You have a DRL Module.
The multifunction switch is the stalk on your column.

This is 96 F150 circuit. Don't have 94.
