Now you did it. Your gonna bring out all the wd-40 haters. :hater:I have experienced this : Turn bike on, headlights on. Start bike , headlight extinguish during starting ( as they should ) . Bike started and running, no headlights. Problem, sticky starter switch. Fix, spray WD-40 in switch.
After doing this last night and this morning the lights work. Great advice. Thanks for your help.Buy some Electric Contact Cleaner spray. Unlike my good friend who relies on WD40, if you want it to be clean and not just covered up with more slippy goo buy Electric Contact Cleaner, spray the switch well inside (be sure to have a rag with you to stop mess), then blow the switch out with some canned air so not to put moisture in.
I have a 1995 Goldwing SE same issue as quoted. No low/high beamI have a 2006 wing and when I turn the motorcycle on the front lights do not work. They don't work at all. Low or high. The back lights are fine. The bike runs fine but no front lights.
Did you ever find the headlight problem? I am having the same thing happen. Thanks, HorsesI have a 1995 Goldwing SE same issue as quoted. No low/high beam
*Head Lights are not on before or after starting.
*Checked Fuses - All Good
*Checked Relays - swapped the cruise control for Headlight - Cruise Control still worked, still no head light, therefore, Relay Good.
*Sprayed Electric Contact Cleaner spray in starter switch housing. - feels a hair sticky, but switch seems to return to proper position. No issues starting bike (was sticky where bike wouldn't start, just that quick contact start attempt)
*Flipped the Hi/Low switch - nothing, not even a blue light when on Hi beam position.
I had a Head Light issue twice before:
1st time also had no neutral light, no reverse and bike wouldn't start, replaced the 5amp Fuse (in the Fuse box/panel)
2nd time replaced the 5amp Relay Fuse to fix. (just below the Headlight (Low) 20amp Relay in the Relay box/panel - Fuse 12, I think)
I know its not the bulbs as the headlight comes on when I put bike in Reverse. - its how I discovered the fix in #2 above.
Maybe I need compressed air to (ahem) blow my switch...or whip out the WD-40?
At a loss...this only keeps me from riding at night
