Does high beam work? if it does then you are getting power and the low beam filament is burnt out. if the high beam doesnt work either, then check for voltage in the light socket in high beam mode, if no voltage then you must check the wiring harness for broken, bent, corroded, or pushed back pins.

Driving down the hi way at nite my front headlight went out.Bought a replacement and that does not work.Bike's signals and brake light work,engine starts,etc.Is it a fuse problem? Short?


Hi, Stephan 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.
Good luck and have nice a day.

No brake light no running lights no dash lights if u play with the headlight switch u can get every thing to work but brake lights but when u press the brake it turns your headlights off


Hi,
I'll make it brief( something wrong w/ my ISP ).
You got problem in the light switch assembly, the plastic cam is already melted and failed to push the metal contactors to the contact points. Replace is necessary.
The brake and headlight problem, better check the shorted wire in the relay and fuse box in the engine area, there is a shorted wire that stealing the power of the headlight relay, thus it turns off when you step on brakes.

Recommendation: Better have a tech to check on that, a total check up of the lighting and brake light harness is required, the main harness under your steering must be check thoroughly.

Hope that helps!

I have a 1992 yamaha virago 1100. my headlights and turn signals work fine but no parking lights


start with checking your fuses, if all three running lights are not working (front two and rear running/brake) then it should be power related. if your fuse is ok check you bulbs, it's ez and quick.
if you haven't found your power it's time to get out the test light. Start at the fuse block and work way to the lights when loss power you found your problem. If your fuse is blown we now that something made it blow, replace the bulb (if one is blown) and turn on the bike with a new fuse, if blows test for ground on the power wire this the bike off. a multimeter on the ohm setting is the easiest way to do this. now this can take a bit it there is a short in the wire take your time and you'll do fine.

1978 yamaha dt250 no brake lights,turn lights,no horn only front headlight good fuse runs fine


MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS IN A GOOD STATE OF CHARGE, ON THE OLDER BIKES WITH AC LIGHTING THE BATTERY ACTS AS A RESISTOR, HENCE IF THE BATTERY ISOLD AND NO LONGER WORKING, WHEN YOU RUN THE MACHINE ALL THE BULBS WILL BLOW, STARTING WITH THE NEUTRAL LIGHT, AND SO ON, AS THE BRAKE LIGHT , HORN , AND INDICATORS ALL WORK ON THE DC ELECTRIC SIDE IT WOULD PROBABLY BE A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK YOU ARE GETTING 6VOLTS FROM THE BATTERY TO THE IGNITION SWITCH, YOU COULD LOOK FOR BROKEN WIRES AROUND THE HEADSSTOCK AREA, OR CORRODED BLOCK, AND OR BULLET CONECTORS ALSO IN THE COMPLETE HARNES.

check fuses and then retrace each indicator conector wire back to the fuse . Once this is done check the fuse to power line if it is a factory problem then they should be able to fix the problem directlly and frre of charge regardless if you brought the bike new or used it is there responsibilty.
