i would check if you have a short somewhere.....but first make sure your battery connections are tight....gauges turning off and on while riding is usually a sign of a loose connection meaning you hit a bump or something and it briefly clips out...did the bike actually turn off??? i dunno....but that seems to be a very odd problem....take out the battery, put it on a trickle and let it charge to full cap....then reconnect making sure the terminal connections are secure and see what happens.... if that works, we''ll have to start diagnosing further, but like they always say, check the obvious first !

sounds like a poor ground issue, pull out the headlight and check all connections in there, your turn signals are on seperate feeds than the lights but they will probably share the same ground/earth in the headlight

SOURCE: i have no working headlights and my bike wont start with the push button but will start and run with a push i checked all fuses and connections i could find all are good any suggestions thank you

Headlights and, starter motors require more amps (power) than the blinkers and, taillights
so: jump your battery before you tear into the wiring
If it still doesn't start or, light up
I'll help you troubleshoot the wiring

Sounds like you have a ground fault. I once had a car with a faulty ground wire on the headlight, when I put high beam on the speedo would jump to 170km/h and the indicators would glow dimly. Sure sounds like a similar ground fault to me, check all the ground straps, from the headlight or anywhere else you can think of.

Why wont the Headlight and Highbeam indicator wont work


Does the headlight itself work? Will it switch from low beam to high beam? If the lights work but just the indicator is bad, then perhaps the problem is in the indicator socket (corrosion or loose connection) or the wiring to the indicator (bad connector, break in the wire or printed circuit board trace). If the lights don't work, it could be the handlebar switch is failing but it's more likely to be the wiring coming from the bars to the handlebar pivot area.

Low beam headlights dont work


Generally that happens when your low beam bulbs burn out. I have had that happen a couple of times, no warning, no indication leading up to it.

I would just replace the bulbs.

Keep blowing headlight and spot bulbs on 2003 Heritage Softail


A good start would be to check the VOLTAGE at the headlight. If at any time the voltage exceeds 14V (at all engine RPMs), replace the voltage regulator.

Bike has new battery and i was riding it,parked bike and came back a couple hours later and it was dead. push started it and it was fine,shut it off a couple times after riding places and it started up....


You should start by checking if its charging.
put a volt meter across the battery, it should read roughly 12v
then start the bike and it should rise to 14v
much more than this can blow bulbs and boil batteries

NO LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS


I've never heard of a headlight relay but most bikes do have turn signal relays...but when my low beam went out it was because the filament burnt out and from your description you said that the high beam works. so you know that its not the starter push button contacts, which usually causes both headlights to not come on, so the only other possibilities is, #1 you have a broken wire going from the starter pb switch to dimmer switch or from dimmer to bulb socket, or the dimmer switch itself is bad. #2 a bad bulb. just check it right now with the key on for voltage in the dim position for 12volts, if you got the voltage then the bulb is bad. can you rate my answer. thanks.
