Question about Harley Davidson FLSTFI Fat Boy Motorcycles

2 Answers

I took off my running lights and I ''accidently'' grounded the white live wire. It shorted out my headlight and I can't get it to light again. I have continuity through the wires, my grounds are good and the bulb is not blown. All the other lights work, all indicators on dash panel light up, high low indicator lights up but goes out as soon as I plug in the headlight. I also swithched out circuit breaker and plug to headlight. Still no light. Any direction you can point me in?

I have a 1994 geo metro. The headlights went out. I checked the fuses. They were ok. The ground wire in the under dash fuse box looked discolored. I made a ground and the left side head light came on...


On these cars the headlights get power from a right and left fuse and the headlight / dimmer switches provide the ground circuit. Both headlights are connected to one ground wire for high and one for low beam. So if one works and the other does not, the problem should be in the wiring before the headlight switch. Red is for high beam and red-white is for low beam. You should be able to jumper the red-white wire on the right headlight and make the low beam circuit for both sides work to test it.

Hi everyone. i have a b.m.w X5 2004 with xenon headlights ....had an accident and had to change both lights........ after changing the right lights goes on but the left doesnt so i tried switching them and...


check headlight to ground connections, headlight relay, light switch.
the ground connection is the most likely cause, during the accident the wires were stretch/pulled/moved more than likely causing the ground wire for the lights to disconnect or become loose.

2007 Chevy silverado (classic). Once hooked up to trailer, the brake lights do not work only turn signals on trailer.


firat of all check and make sure you have a real good ground or otherwise you will lose current to another wire and this can short out and cause the lights to malfunction.

White: Ground
Brown: Running
Yellow: LT and Stop
Green: RT and Stop

This is the wiring code for the 4 wire trailers and
Wire a round seven-pin hitch, typically sold without a wiring harness, to the vehicle observing the following color codes: Run a white 10-gauge wire between ground and terminal one, run the blue 12-gauge wire between the electric brake controller and terminal two, the brown 14-gauge wire between the taillights and terminal three, the black 10-gauge wire between the permanently live 12-volt supply and terminal four, the yellow 14-gauge wire between the left turn/brake light and terminal five, the green 14-gauge wire between the right turn/brake light and terminal six and the purple 14-gauge wire between the backup light and terminal seven (in the center).

I have a melted wire coming from the back plug on my headlight switch . green and white wire. i also have 3 melted wires going to my trunck lid . from my lr tail light . dont know what to do . can u help ...


The problem is a short to ground in your running lights circuit. From your description, it seems likely that the short is somewhere in the wiring to your lr tail light. You need to replace those wires all the way from the tail light to the switch, and that should solve the original problem.

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,


Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

89 Thunderbird, no tail lights


Having the same issue somewhat. Tail lights and dash lights quit. Checked the headlight switch wiring harness by looping all other prong holes back to the main power and they all work, so mine must be the switch. Having a real hard time finding a switch that matches the old one, even though they say it is a replacement. I paid the $25 at www.alldatadiy.com and they have quite a few wiring diagrams for the car.

No headlights


A bad headlight switch is a common problem with these cars. All of the power for the lights goes though this switch. You can try wiggeling the switch with the lights on, if they flash off and on as you move the switch the switch could be the problem.

1998 Jeep Wrangler TJ Headlights working intermittently


I have a 97 TJ and the headlights wouldn't come on but the parking lights would. Funny thing was that if I pulled the brights to flash someone, the brights would work. I took out the old headlight switch ($26 at Checker) and they work again. When I pulled the switch there was one connector that seemed to be corroded. Hope this helps

Headlight


violet i have checked the ground at the headlight and it is good. I also get no power at the yellow wire coming from the stator i do get power from the white wire coming from the stator. If i disconnect the wires from the headlight i then get no power from the white wire off the stator. if i disconect the yellow wire from the stator i also get no power from the white off the stator all connections seem to be fine and the bike runs great. the bulb is good please help! thanks all.,It sounds like you may have lost the stator ground or one of the windings is open. Measure the resistance from the yellow wire to ground and from the white wire to ground. Each winding should be less than 1 ohm to ground. You should also be able to measure resistance across the white and yellow leads. Here again, less than 1 ohm. __________________,,,
