There should be a fuse in the electrical panel or under the seat. you might also check that the switch is functioning.

What fuse to look for ,no power at all nothing will turn on ,no light ,it's like my battey cable is off


I think it may be your cable, one of them. Look and follow the positive cable. Is there a pigtail leading off of it? That smaller cable goes to the fuse/relay block near the battery to power up many or all of the maxi-fuses, other hot-all-times fuses, and the relays there. If none of the fuses have power, then nothing happens, and problem is the battery or one of the cables not secure and clean.
On older vehicles with only a single positive cable to the starter, the battery power is picked up at the starter connection by several fusible links, and these serve as the power distributors, one wire to the headlights, one to ignition, and so on.

Our 2002 Subaru Forester's headlights keep shutting off like there is a short. When we slam our hood sometimes one of them comes back on.


The headlight relay(s) could be defective. You should be able to read 12 volts at 15A FUSES 8 and 9. A defect in the DRL circuit also could affect operation.

I have a 1993 Harley Sportster headlight that works sometimes and sometimes it does not. The bulb is fine. Are there fuses? What about ignition switch?


There will be a lighting fuse or relay but I am not sure where unless in the left side panel or under the seat, more likely under the side panel. A fuse is not likely to be intermittent. A relay could be. Otherwise it is likely a broken wire or a loose or corroded connection. If it was the ignition switch you could expect the engine to quit at the same time. It could also be the headlight switch but these will all require individual inspection and diagnosis. Check not just the power swide of the circuit but also the ground as a poor, loose or otherwsie intermittent headlight ground will do the same thing as a power side of the circuit problem.

Where is turn signal flasher located on a 1983 xlx sportster ?


Find out where your fuse panel is located, under seat or in the headlight bucket. It will be with the relays there. Relay boxes instead of fuses.

Where is the fuse box?


Hi Showercapban, 1998 and later Sportster models circuit breaker and fuses were located in an electrical bracket behind the starter relay and data link that was mounted behind the left side panel. 1997 and earlier circuit breakers only no fuses were located under the seat and for a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck.Harley Davidson Wiring Diagrams and Schematics

I have swapped relays, replaced bulbs, checked fuses, checked wires for continuity,and yet the problem of no low beam headlights on my wife's 2004 Chevy Trailblazer. It has the L6 engine RWD (not 4x4).


Hmmm. Are you getting power to the pigtails (where the bulb goes in)? Another problem is that the little connector the bulb goes into fries from heat and needs to be replaced. Are you having problems with overheating? The reason I ask, is the other relay runs the fan, and if they both don't work, then you have relay problems. Is your fan cycling on and off? Try this....plugging and unplugging the relay many times, which will clean any micro oxidation off the contacts in the fuse box. I did this about 7-10 times.... This actually worked for me unknowingly, while I drove from autoparts store to autoparts store trying to find a new relay. I was taking it out and showing the store which relay I needed, then putting it back in when none of them had it in stock. It's been over a year now and no problems with the old relay.

No power to the fuel pump fuse 07 sportster 1200


Power to the fuel pump comes from the system relay via the fuel pump fuse. The power to the relay contact is from the ignition switch via the ECM fuse. The relay is activated with power form the ECM itself and is also controlled by the "stop/run" switch on the right handlebar control, so make sure it is switched to "run".
