Question about 1998 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
How do I fix my headlights not working on my Kawasaki Nomad motorcycle and the fuse is okay @
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, intermittent, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright 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, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/low 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/lighting coil
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

i had the same same problem with my 1992 vulcan 750. more than likely it is your reserve lighting devive located on the right side battery box. have you had a problem with your regulator/rectifier lately or a power surge of some type?

I hope you have a jack... I had to remove the pipes and bags on my 04 vulcan nomad so I remove the cotter pin and pull the axle out of the rear hub. Then removed the spcer and rear brake. slide wheel assy. out of the drive hud on the left (removal of brake and spacer allow this) and drop the tire down. It's not hard...

Ok, locate and check the fuse at the starter solenoide, this is the main power fuse, follow the red battery lead until you locate the solenoide, here you should find under a cover a 30 amp fuse, hope this helps , paul
