My headlights will not pulse ! I have checked the bulbs and they are burning on low and bright , but can't get them to pulse . Suggestions appreciated !!
It was on the bike when i bought it 2 yrs. ago ! I have never had any problem with it before today . Where is it located ? I checked the sensor and wiped it off and it appears to be fine !Hmmm....Did you install it or was it there when you bought the wing?
The modulator is a plug n play device on your headlights. It also has a sensor to "see" daylight or dark.....Maybe the sensor is blocked and it thinks it is dark time.
Yes , mine is sticking out the front grill ! I do not want to take this bike apart , but i guess i have no choice since i am not paying the shop to rob me ! I can clean the windshield and replace bulbs while i am in there i guess . No need to have it apart and not do it all once i am in there ! Thanks for the help !! I was really hoping you would say it is a fuse or something much simpler !! : )ok you said you checked the sensor....that's good...cause you know where it is located as the PO could have placed it anywhere on the wing.....Mine is up front near the front grill.
As far as the unit itself it is plugged in right behind your headlight....so that means if you are going to get to it you have to remove all the stuff you would remove to change out the headlight bulb.
I am in Athens Al. We are almost neighbors ! I will let you know when i find the problem , as of now i'm not in any rush to work on it . I figure as long as i have a headlight it is good to go until i have more time to play with it . I appreciate your help and when you get home maybe we can get together at a Crackerbarrel !! BennyNope sorry...not a fuse. I would do like you said and clean and replace stuff (lights) while I was in there too. I have not heard of one of these just going bad though. I guess it can happen. It is a sealed unit with wires that plugs into the headlight and the sensor wire is run to a location to "see" daylight.
Be sure to post and let us know what you find wrong. Though I suspect you will have to replace the unit.
BTW...Where in North Alabama are you located?
Yeah, legal for me...I'm special . Have yet to have any LEO tell me otherwise. I don't use them at night though...that would be pure evil.Are these legal to use ? I don't know that Alabama Troopers would think so ! I think the locals would have a field day with anyone using them here !
Tf you maybe correct.....When I was doing research for one for my 1500 wing all the ones I looked at (at the time) did plug into the back of the headlight where the wiring harness connects to the light. That was 2-3 years ago...they may have different ones now.All modulators are not "on" the headlamps.
Before you start, can you get in touch with the person that installed it to find out brand and where it's mounted?
No indication in the OP, it was a 1500! Don't know if those can be under the seat, probably not!Tf you maybe correct.....When I was doing research for one for my 1500 wing all the ones I looked at (at the time) did plug into the back of the headlight where the wiring harness connects to the light.
