To start with, your battery was probably already low. You have to be at about 4000 rpm for the charging system to kick in and put out 14v or so. So if you just sit and idle, you will eventually run the battery down. If it is already low, you may have run it down below where there are enough amps to start it again. I know my 2002 BA started having what appears to be charging or regulating problems and the batteries won't stay charged. Try charging the battery with a good trickle charger to begin with. Then, when it is fully charged, run the bike and see if the charging system is keeping things up.

Sportster keeps blowing headlight, tail light and turn signal fuses.


You've got either a short or grounding problem somewhere causing all that. Check the wiring, make sure none of it is worn through the protective jacket to the wire, which may be touching other metal on the bike and shorting out, just as it would in your home electrical wiring and fuse box. Blowing or tripping a fuse protects you and the rest of the electrical system from further damage. If you can't find anything, check with a local repair shop.

Headlight keeps blowing out 1996 yamaha virago 1100


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
9. Weak charging alternator/generator.
10. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

Stop by a local parts store like Autozone, Advance, etc.. and have them do a FREE OBII scan for you. They can scan all the faults, let you know what triggered the light and they can reset the light for you also.

What could be causing my 1969 Mustang to have sudden, complete electrical failures. The car shuts off and I have no dome light or headlights...nothing ! I can usually get the car started back up in a few...


Am inclined to say loose battery terminal or battery cable at starter loose. Clicking noise produced by low voltage at soleniod and not enough to engage.Check positive and negative connectins at both ends.

Possible electrical problems.


I would suggest that you check to see if the battery is connected properly---correct polarity!

If connected wrong, main fuse will blow. Lights come on because power is routed through the frame (ground) briefly.
Hope this helps.
