Head light not working..
on: October 29, 2013, 05:08:03 PM
Hello,
I wonder if anyone can please help. Went for a ride in the marvellous spanish countryside and all of a sudden head light and stop light stopped working. I replaced the blown out bulb but still not working. Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Assuming the replacement bukb is not faily, check the fuse & try prodding/wobbling the starter button to see if you can get it to flicker.

Hey, thank you for your reply.
Yes, forgot to mentioned that the fuse had also blown and I replaced it.
I guess I'll check the starter button tomorrow and keep you posted on outcome.
Thank you again.  :062:

Ok,
I've disassembled the start switch unit as well as the indicator/horn unit, I've removed dust and blown compressed air. Put back everything together, double checked head light bulb and fuse...still not working :084:..
Could it be something related to head light relay??
Cheers :183:

Thank you mate,
I will check all the other fuses and if the problem persists I will visit my local honda dealer.
Will keep you posted.

 :084:Difficult to say... I must have inadvertently wet somewhere near the electrics or switches last time I washed the baby.. When I arrived at Honda, I found that the fuse had blown again. The dealer changed it and checked all contacts using a tester but couldn't find anything wrong. He suggested I pay attention to the circumstances in which the event occurs..if it does go wrong again..
Have a great day.

It's worrying that you have had the fuse blow at least twice....
It sounds like there is a short somewhere.
