Is the headlamp glass clean? if not clean inside & out
Otherwise try using a bulb with a higher wattage, if this is no brighter then not enough charge is getting to the headlamp. Check cleanliness of all connections. If still not bright then try an uprated (or heavy-duty rewired) alternator

Good Luck
Hope this helps.

ABS CHECK LIGHT DOESNT COME ON WHEN YOU TURN KEY ON


1. I would not be concerned because if there was a failure in the ABS you would definitely get an ABS warning light and the ABS and most likely the stability control/traction control systems (with added warning lights) will all switch off .

2. You can test if the ABS is operational. On a very quiet damp surface, straight, wide road( with NO other cars around), apply your brakes hard from a very low speed - up to 20 mph ONLY driving in a straight line - until the car stops. The front brakes should attempt to lock up under hard braking and if the ABS is operational you will feel it kick in and the brake pedal will pulsate as the ABS constantly allows brake pressure and then releases it to prevent the wheels from locking up on the damp road. If the ABS does not kick in be ready to release the brake pedal quickly to allow the wheels to rotate so you can steer the car safely. Without the ABS the front wheels should begin to lock up on the damp road surface due to the low level of tire grip. ONLY test this at very low speed and ONLY when driving in a straight line on a straight section of wide road with no other vehicles around.

My 1989 gmc serra the head lights don't light the road to well is there something I can do ? different type of bulb


dull head lights cab be from several things
1-bad reflectors behind the bulbs --any yellowing, rusting or dull reflector surfaces -- replace head light assemblies
2 badly aligned head lights-- beams shining off into space instead of on the road. --- have an alignment done on the lights
3 wet roads do not reflect head lights properly so it appears that the lights are not working well--- not much to do. the light reflects forward of the wet surface and not back to the driver
4 only one head light or no main beams and running on low beams only--- check light operation and check light control module for operation

Leak visible on transmission cooler


unless leak has gotten bad enough to lower the fluid level dramatically fixing it will not improve slippage, slipping is worn clutch surfaces or low engagement pressure, (low pressure could result from really low fluid) If you fill it to full and it still slips fixing the cooler will not help, but fixing the cooler leak is a necessary item to do anyway, keeps oil out of our ground water and off the roads making them slippery for motorcyclists.

Adjust headlamps


It may be that the whole headlamp unit has dropped (at the front) so it all points down slightly, if it has a bolt on each side (where it mounts)these may be loose. Firmly try to pull the whole headlamp unit upward, if it moves, tighten the 2 bolts whil its in the correct position.

I have abs and brake light warning lights on, however, when checked by mechanic the abs brakes are working fine. whats causing light to come on?


FOR ONE THING CHANGE MECHANICS ! HE SHOULD HAVE FIXED THE PROBLEM, YOU MAY HAVE A SERIOUS BRAKE ISSUE ! IF LIGHT IS ON IT WILL NOT PASS INSPECTION ! YOU MAY HAVE AIR IN SYSTEM, NEEDS BLEED ! FLUID COULD BE CONTAMINATED , NEEDS BLEED OUT, REPLACED W/ FRESH FLUID ! ABS REQUIRES THAT THE REAR BRAKE CIRCUIT OPERATES BEFORE THE FRONT BRAKES, THIS PREVENTS SKIDDING, THE PURPOSE OF ABS BRAKES, CORRECT ? MASTER CYLINDER HAS SEALS, CONTAMINATED FLUID AFFECTS SEALS, BRAKE LIGHT WILL STAY ON UNTIL PROBLEM IS RESOLVED !!! REAR BRAKES IF SHOES NEED ADJUSTED, CLOSER TO DRUM ! THIS WILL HELP, BUT BLEEDING OUT ALL BAD FLUID & AIR IN SYSTEM IS PARAMOUNT !!!!!! BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH MAY NEED REPLACED, PROPORTIONING VALVE WHICH SEPARATES FRONT FROM REAR BRAKES , IS OUT OF BALANCE, THE VALVE NEEDS TO BE @ A NEUTRAL OR CENTERED POSITION, COULD BE STUCK TOWARD EITHER BRAKE CIRCUIT, MORE FRONT THAN REAR, UNDERSTAND ? THINK I COVERED YOUR ISSUE, PLEASE RATE MAY ANSWER ! THANKYOU,

We have a 2004 60R withch has been great until a minor frontend, parking lot, collision a year ago.. the front bumper was replaced and the headlights have never worked well since. They point so far down...


Hello
Due to the collision a frame was damaged - that's why your headlamps are not lighting the road well. Try taking off the front bumper, headlamps, grill, fender and take a look for bended frame. I would take a hammer and bend the headlamp connections so that all the lamp turn a few degrees upwards. Then when you put everything back together - use your headlamp height regulator to make the beam light properly.
Hope this helps.

Are you getting 12v to the headlamp fuse? If so, are you getting 12v to the hi-low beam selector? If so, are you getting 12v to the headlamp socket? If yes to all of those questions you have a bad ground somewhere in the circuit. Turn on the key. Use your voltmeter to check continuity from the ground side of the circuit (the three points you just tested the voltage on) to the frame of the bike. If your headlight comes on, you have found the part of the circuit that does not have a good ground. Check that part of the circuit for a broken or loose connection.

Headlamp brightness.


Hi Kensar My 1993 bullet has a (newer) flat glass H4 reflector and lens. I have fitted a 12v 35/35w H4 P43T bulb and wired it to draw power from the battery (via light switch and ignition switch) as opposed to drawing power from the alternator output. So the bulb keeps its intensity irrespective of engine revs. I find the light to be good enough for spirited riding on dark country lanes. I did have to adjust the lens by packing the bottom of it away from the chrome rim with a couple of narrow strips of bicycle inner tube to get dip down onto the road and beam to be horizontal. When I got the bike, the headlamp was more like an anti-aircraft searchlight,,,
