Lights blow because of several problems
excess voltage from a faulty regulator is a reason they blow
loose bulbs that cause voltage spikes will blow bulbs
loose /dirty earth terminals will also cause spikes
poor quality bulbs where the filament sits horizontal and not vertical that allows the filament to vibrate and collapse
The first test would be the voltage regulator to ensure that it does not go over 14.6 volts

Left side parking lights/dash lights don't come on. 10 amp fuse just keeps blowing. Checked bulbs and replaced head light switch.


you shouldn't have replaced the switch... it was probably good from the start

your key words "fuse just keeps blowing"
that means a wiring problem / got to trace the circuit and find where that wire is short circuiting to power is the only fix for this situation

1983 Honda XL 125 R head light keeps blowing


Hi, Dave if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright 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, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/low beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

Water in light cover lens


The head lamp assembly should be sealed, you can either replace them or...... remove them and drill a small hole or two in the bottom to allow the moisture to exit. I have done this on a number of vehicles and it works great
