Question about 1991 Honda GL 1500 Aspencade Gold Wing
The headlight stopped working on my 1991 Honda Goldwing. It has two bulbs one when on low beam and a second bulb when on high beam. Neither bulb is working at this time could they both have failed at the same time? Not sure how to troubleshoot if it is not the bulb. @

Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, intermittent, 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.

On the older Goldwing you need to take the chrome panel off the front that is just below the windshield to be able to reach in and pull the socket and bulb. I have worked on many GoldWings bout havent got into any newer one. Also if toy get the haynes manuel for repair you won't regret it. Its a big help.

That sounds right, Check the plugs on the bulbs to see for sure. The passenger side one should have three prongs and the other should only have two. Good luck
