    I have a new 3 cell maglite and another one that is about 15 yrs old. WHen I loaded the new one and turned it on the beam was much brighter than the old one's. I put fresh batteries in the old light, and got the same weak beam. Then, I changed out the bulb, and got the same result. Any ideas?

I has the same problem with a 2D maglite. What cured it was to remove the lamp, depress the lamp holder fully and then put a spike (I used the point of a pair of compasses) behind the thin metal strip which runs down one side of the plastic "hole" that is revealed. Then using a pair of fine-nosed pliers bend the end metal strip toward the outside of the hole. This then pushes the contract strip against the lap holder and a better beam ensues. I also used a strip of clean plain paper to make sure that there was no dirt between the holder and the contact.

No guarantees for your problem but it worked for me.

2011 KTM 990 Adventure low beam blows and speedometer goes out


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, 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 headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator.
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

The battery died in my 95 jeep grand cherokee laredo an now it wont hold a charge


If the battery is old(2 to 2/12 years) the battery is sulfated and worn out inside. Going dead is just the nail in the coffin. Plus, a discharged battery will freeze in cold weather, allowing the ice inside to bend and break the lead plates inside, causing shorts to occur and will drain the battery after charging. If it were me, I would bring the battery somewhere warm for 8 hours, slow charge it, then have it tested. If it's more than 2 1/2 years old, I would just replace it.

Low beams go off when high beams are on


what car, what year,? what model (wrangler?) im clueless
bulbs get weak with age
the glass in bulb (looks like silver paint)
this is normal for extreme usage.
replace the bulbs if dim. both.
if the car has covers in front of bulbs (not my 02 wrangler)
but newer cars have this crappy plastic in front,
it can be cloudy, there is a nice kit that fixes it (labor) at walfart. ask.

dim lites?
1 dim bulbs
2 cloudy lenses.
3: bad wire, bad grounds and bad connectors to lamps.
4: wiring hacked by kids wanting HID bs.
5: wrong bulbs, kids again.
6: corroded fuses, (12v at lamp do you have)?
7: bad combo switch or its ground is bad.

if you have 12volts across the dim lamp, you can skip 3 to 7 fails.

see your FSM for how they work. and wiring.
does your car have DRL? daylight running light option or in CANADA?
that be more heart ache.
and my jeep the highs and lows are never on at the same time.
the combo switch selects one or the other.
what it does in flash mode, not sure. need car year. and name.

Weak light


If the charge lite comes on when charging it means your transformer is still good. Replace the battery.

If you get no charge light transformer is bad, if this is the case (personally) i would replace the charger & battery for that peace of mind.
