Hi, Dennisdemenac if your headlight is not working the first thing to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.

SOURCE: how difficult is it to change the clutch on

Its not difficult at all. It is a matter of removing parts and remembering where they go when its time to re-assemble the bike and follow the manual.

What is difficult is the rear seals that you should also change. They need to be plased in perfectly and with the correct BMW tool or your engine will develop crankcase pressures way beyond limits and blow seals.

Allow yourself two full days if you don't usually swing spanners and around a day if you do.

Don't forget to chock the front wheel from forward movement and use only quality tools.

2011 KTM 990 Adventure low beam blows and speedometer goes out

Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim 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, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo 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.
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

Why does the fuse immediately blow on my power door locks? how to fix this?

You have a short somewhere in the system. Maybe one of the lock actuators or a switch. To test disconnect all locks and switch then replace fuse if don't blow start with driver door and reconnect lock check fuse see if it blew if not reconnect switch active lock check fuse see if ok. Continue with each door separate using same steps until fuse no good you will have found short. Replace shorted part.

1 headlight will not shut off, battery now dead

You need to return to the shop that did your radiator or a better shop to find any wires that they might have pinched, that would blow the fuses.

No power to my headlights or wipers

it sounds like you have some loose wires, or bad ground since you found the place that when tapped does something, first thing disconnect your battery, neg first, the pos, there should be a couple of bolts holding down the fuse box, take them out, now if you can turn it over, or try to locate the wires hooked up to the one fuse you were tapping, checking those wires to make sure they are good, not rusted, broken, bare , and tight, fix if not if not, then check the bus bar on the fuse box, this is were the pos cable from the battery goes, sometimes these come loose, break, and can cause all kinds of things also check your ground wires, to make sure they have a good ground

My headlights have quit working on my 1994 Chevy 1500 pickup. I replaced the headlight switch but they still don't work. The parking lights come on but not the headlights

Try checking both a; your fuses, and b; check your bulbs. You should have two fuse boxes, one under hood and one in or under the dash. Check those for bad, blown or weak fuses. And check your headlights bulbs for them being good and their connection. If this doesn't fix your problem, you may check out your highbeam switch.

I have a 2001fxdwg2. The other day I climbed on it without turning off my alarm. Alarm went off. The headlight quit at that point. The high beam indicator is on all the time. Bulb is good and all fuses...

not sure if this will work but try disconnecting the battery (neg first) leave it set for 10 minutes then reconnect(neg. last)
sometimes this will reset the computer

All four windows quit working at the same time

I would suspect a blown fuse, or relay. There should be a fuse/relay box under the hood, and also one under the driver's side of the dash. Find the one labeled "Power Windows" or something similar, pull it out and see if the wire in the fuse is burned into. If so, the fuse is blown and needs to be replaced with an exact same type and amperage fuse. If it is a relay (a little black box), you could pull it, and if there is an identical one for headlights, or something you don't have to have at the moment, you could swap that relay in place of the one for the windows and see if they work, and the headlights quit working. If so, you have a bad relay that will need to be replaced. These parts can be found at any local auto parts store.
Hope this helps!

04 escalade rear air compressior does not come on

ive worked on alot of theses, most times they are noisey or dont work as in your case, the #1 reason is due to a bad compressor, this is located under rear bumper area, easy to replace, just remove a few rubber covers and three bolts and an air line, anyway first check the fuse,there are three fuse boxs in this truck, you will be looking at the engine compartment fuse box, i have enclosed a picture to help and also i circled the location ,. if the fuse is good then check the relay, the relay is located outside this fusebox on the side, i also enclosed a picture of that, most of the time the fuse may be blown due to a bad compressor and sometimes not, anyway if the relay checks good and fuse good then replace the compressor, or if you replace the fuse and it pops then replace the compressor. the compressor i found to be COSTLY, i found a website that i deal with alot for this type of stuff, like compressors and air bag shocks, check them out and compare the price with dealer, there compressors are top of the line, never had a problem and have been dealing with this company for 8yrs, heres the web site, this help ,good dayjohnjohn2_101.gifjohnjohn2_102.gifjohnjohn2_103.gif

Is there a hidden 'inline' fuse on a 04/6 cy

There are seperate "trailer" fuses in the fuse box in the engine compartment. Separate fuses for trailer left, right and running lights.

Check all fuses, I had the same issue before.

Good luck.
