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.

I have an 04 vstar 1100 classic. I lost all lights and horn. Bike starts. Fuses under seat seem fine. Any ideas


Hi, Dave sure sounds like a fuse to me get out your test light hook it to the negative battery post turn on the ignition switch and check your light circuit fuse holder on bothe sides for continuity for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

91 Dodge Dakota, truck starts fine. No horn or lights. Fuses checked and were OK. Please Help.


Check voltage and ground for any component you are missing? Any applicable fuses, check for voltage at the fuse circuit, use a testlight to check for voltage. Of course ground is important also for the particular system.

Yamaha 650 vstar 2009 turn signals,horn,brake light keep shorting out


prprobably best to start with removing seat and fuel tank and doiing an inspection of wiring harness...all good, inspect each light socket for damage....include any added items on the harness.
If all that looks good...try temporarily unplugging horns...on Yamahas the horn is usually electrically "hot" and then runs to horn button where it is grounded.
A defect in the horn can short out and blow signal fuse.

The horn not working dt250, have power to wire at horn . Should a horn sound if connected to a 6 volt battery to test horn?


Does the horn have 2 wires or 1? Newer Yamahas have 2 wires....power to the horn, and then a ground wwire that goes through the horn button. If its a 2 wire....jumper the ground wire to a good ground to try the horn...if that works...check the horn button.
If its a single wire horn...ensure the horn is firmly grounded.

I am trying to re install tail lights/brake light and turn signals on a 1978 gl1000 honda goldwing and i cant get the turn signals/brake light to work. the tail light works , no problem. i have done...


Check the contact plates inside the bulb sockets. On old sockets sometimes one of the contacts will melt or sink into the plate causing half the tail light to not work. Many times I have taken the plate/with wires out of a different light and repaired a socket. I have also changed turn signals from front to back by switching the contact plates. Horns are notorious for not working. Check it by hooking power directly to it. If you have done a thorough plug and unplug of all the wire connections, your next option is to carefully take apart the handle bar switch and clean the contacts. If you ave already tried another flasher unit (12 volt trailer flashers are cheap) be sure to replace the old fuses with new ones. Old fuses sometimes separate internally and no longer work correctly.Also do not be afraid of taking the ignition contact base off and cleaning that. If you take off the ignition switch, put the key to the on position, push the three tabs, you can pull off the electrical contact base , carefully disassemble it, and clean it. Good Luck

When i put front brake on no back light and headlight goes dim


Check the battery to make sure it is not failing.
The headlight will work even if the battery is not holding a charge.
Basically running off the alternator.
Hitting the brake activates a draw of current which will dim the headlight.
Brake light may or may not work. Check the fuses and make sure there are no shorts in the wires running to the tail light. Check bulb also to make sure it is has not burned out.

The link below is for the 1100 V star should give you some good tips and gives you a good idea of where everything is:
