No bulb should ever burn out from the charging system, however motorcycles tend to be less controlled voltage than cars.
So you have 2 choices it seems to me.
One is to put in bulb with higher resistance, that will not be as bright.
Or the other is to check the voltage, see that it rises about 14.5 volts, and if it does, change the regulator.
High voltage will also tend to cook the battery, so unless it is only short spikes, you should probably change the regulator.

You are probably dealing with bad grounds or ground wires. If loosening and tightening/ unplugging and replugging in the wire connections does not fix it , you are probably dealing with a bad regulator/rectifier.

Clearance lights


The clearance lights should be on the same circuit as the marker and tail lights. Do the other lights work ?
If the lights were added after the truck was built, they could have been spliced into the harness somewhere.

Rear park lights keep blowing fuse


first mistake you make is to increase the fuse capacity to above that required. You have a short in the circuit and by putting such a large fuse in you run the very real risk of burning the wiring loom. Check the bulb sockets and check that the right bulbs are in the sockets. bulbs come in two styles. one has 2 contact points and is either for 2 filaments (stop and tail) or a earth wire (Plastic light units) and the other is a single contact that earths out through the metal base . If you have the wrong bulb in place the current will short directly across the contacts and the light will not come on and the fuse will blow. Fuses for tail lights will be 5 amp maximun

2005 xgl350 how do i replace the brake light?


hi friend,
step 1
Determine which lights are burned out by asking a friend to hit the brakes while you stand behind the car.
  • Step 2 Purchase the bulbs from an auto parts store or a large home and garden chain store. If you don't know what type of bulb to get, bring the burned out light bulb inside the store with you (see steps below to remove).
  • Step 3 Open the trunk of the vehicle. You'll notice two Torx screws on the side of each tail light assembly. Use your A-T15 Torx screwdriver to un-screw the assembly on the side with the burned out bulb.
  • Step 4 Slide the tail light assembly out toward the rear of the vehicle. Disconnect the proper connector for the brake light and pull out the spent bulb.
  • Step 5 Insert the new bulb.
  • Step 6 Slide the tail light assembly back into the car and replace the Torx screws.
  • Step 7 Replace the bulb on the other side with the other new bulb in the pack you purchased, since it will probably burn out soon as well.
    hope this helps u
    please rate me......................
    thank u for using fixya

    Yes, The tail light works on a different part of the bulb than the brake light. That bulb has a burned out tail light filiment. Needs to be replaced.

    Bulb failure, position light


    Bulb failure, position light means you have a burned out light bulb somewhere. I had the same problem on my 2002 s60. It looked like all the lights were working but I found out that there are several bulbs in the tail lights, so even though the tail lights were working there was in fact a burned out bulb. Look at the bulbs a bit closer and you will probably find one thats bad.

    Brake lights on tail don't work, upper one does.


    There is a recall on the tail lights from GM. The problem I found on mine were faulty contacts that would burn out the bulb contacts in short order after replacing the bulbs. So even if you replace the bulbs they will only work for a short while before they burn out. Take it to a GM dealer to get the complete tail light assemblies replaced.
