Question about 1984 Honda VT 500 C Shadow
Headlight fuse blows when high beam switch is thrown, low beam is fine.
front running lights (blinkers when not blinking) work all the time.
tail and licence lights work all the time.
brake light and both turn signals come and go seemingly at will, i can find no pattern and no cause, they share a fuse with the horn and the horn works all the time and the fuse does not blow.
There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!
