Some bikes by design shut off the headlight while cranking the starter to conserve power. I'm not positive on your model, but Goldwings have this feature.
They do this by having 2 sets of contacts behind the starter button...so as you push in, first the headlight contacts open...then as you push further the starter circuit contacts close. Sometimes as these bikes age...the button doesn't fully release, so the starter contacts open, but the headlight contacts don't close.

With key off....spray a little WD-40 around the button and work in and and out several times, letting it snap out, then retry.

2008 GMC Acadia. No power to headlight switch assembly. No light, won't do anything. Daylight running light do work and turn lights on. Relay? Which one?


Not sure I follow you.
Since 2000 most GM models use the dimmer switch and headlight switch to ground the lights instead of providing power.
The headlights get power from fuses for left and right, control is on the ground circuit side. So the ground wires go thru the dimmer then the headlight switch to complete the circuit.
The body control module grounds the headlight relay.

I have a 73 chevy van headlights not working and I need to trouble shoot it.?


Check for 12v going to headlights, if headlight plugs are getting power then both headlights are burned out.
Check the headlight switch for power coming into it. If its getting voltage in, and headlights not working, then its the switch.
If switch isnt getting power, check for a blown fuse in the fusebox.

1987 caprice headlight won't work


check power and ground at the headlight socket for high and low. if you have power and ground there the headlight is no good. if not then you will have to trace back to find the problem, but first I would check the headlight switch after finding out if you don`t have power or ground.

I have a 1987 Nissan pickup. With no headlights plugged in, I get 12 volts of power to the headlight plugs. As soon as I plug headlights in, I get no power on the volt-meter.


Are the headlights working ? If so they would pull current thru the switch and leave nothing for the meter.
If not you could have a weak connection between the headlight switch and the source of power, including inside the switch. The connection could be good enough to power the meter but not good enough to power the lights.

My headlights stopped working i checked the fuses they r good. the turn signals and brake lights still work also


Switch for he headlights may need to be checked out. This is a hard task unless you have a test meter. I would start by checking the headlight sockets for power, if you have power, then move up to check the power at the fuse box. You may have to remove the headlight switch if you desire to check the power connections. Your headlight switch will have to be on when you check this. Good Luck.

Headlights won't turn on/ 2006 impreza sport/ parking lights are on but not the headlights


First of all check the headlight fuse. If its alright, check that there's power getting to the headlights. If there is check both the bulbs, because they're probally both blown. But if there's no power check if there is power getting to the headlight relay if so test the relay, it may need to be replaced. If not the problem will be with the switch in the dash or a problem with the wiring.
