Has the bulb ever been replaced??? The low beam section of the bulb could be blown. What needs to be done is a voltage test from the headlight connection while the switch is on the low beam selection, you should read battery voltage, if battery voltage is ok,you know you are getting power to the headlight from the switch. If you are getting power, you can rule out that the switch is defective and the bulb is actually bad or the connector to the bulb is loose or a wire is disconnected. Right now, with the info I have seems to point to a defective bulb.

1984 kawasaki zn 700a my headlight will not work, tested headlight it works fine with spare battery but will not work when installed in bike. Does the bike have to be running for the light to work?


Hi, Jon 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.

Headlights do not work, but when I switch to brights they do


You can check the fuses and fuse able links for blown fuses also look at the wiring connection to see if loose or wire shorting out on any metal and if the connection is good and all fuses good then you will need to replace the headlamp bulb or bulbs. Most of the time only one side goes, very rare to have them both go at the same time. Check for a short in the wiring somewhere, that could cause them both to go at the same time. Hope that Helps

What does a burned out headlight for a dyna fxd look like?


the bulb glass itself usually looks burned with black and/or white distortions on the glass. the bulbs are cheap enough, just replace it with a new one. if it's not it, you'll still have a back up on hand.

Low beam head lights not working - The low beams, both stopped working. The high beams work fine. I checked the fuses and all 4 are good. I even swapped the low and high beam fises just in case. No...


if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and grounds.you also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals

Headlights or brights will not turn on. Running lights turn on. Fuse and relay are both fine.


I looked in the Honda technical manual wiring diagrams and I don't think there is a separate relay for the low beam headlights. The headlight switch itself is located right above the steering column where the headlight stalk is attached - controls parking lights, high beams and low beams. It could be that a relay is integrated within this switch,

Both headlights stopped working. Need to turn on


You probably have a bad switch.If your hi beams work then the fuse is good.
