You are absolutely correct.The faulty relay can cause this problems.And even the tail light and indicators stop working if the relay is faulty.Also if the bulbs are faulty and internal wires are short then this can cause the same problem.So with the meter check the voltage of the wires in the instrument panel.Also check the voltage at the bulb sockets.If the bulb is good but there is no current at the bulb assembly then it will not function properly.Also check with the continuity tester to confirm the cut in between the wires.Many a times the wires are actually good but get cut in between due to getting old and rusted or got puled out of its connections.any of this possibility can cause the problem.The problem is not major but yes it requires proper diagnosing and troubleshooting to locate the minor fault. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    Yes most probably the relay is giving the indication of the problem.But dont ignore other possibilities too if replacing the relay does not helps.-----------------
    Thanks for keeping updated with your query.

I have a 2005 yamaha yzf r1 and my headlights, brake light, and turn signals do not turn on bike runs and everything are the fuses burnt out?


Hi, Tom if your headlight is not working, 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 wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
9. Weak charging alternator/generator.
10. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.
