Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLHTC - FLHTCI Electra Glide classic

1 Answer

Want to wire the spot lights to stay on when I go to Hi Beam on the Headlight. Have found the yellow wire that feeds them power from the low beam side, now am looking for the brown wire, I think, that supplies the headlight switch with power from the fuse block. Can I find it without removing the front of the fairing?

My headlights wont work

I don't believe there is a fuse. There is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. If you are sure the headlight switch is good, it could be a bad dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, with the headlight switch turned on, a larger yellow wire going from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch should be a hot wire. The dimmer switch sends power on a tan wire to the low beams, and through a light green wire to the high beam bulbs.
If your high beam indicator on the dash also doesn't work, then it is likely one of those switches. A voltmeter or test light would need to be used to find which one is bad. If you can find the connector at the steering column going to the dimmer switch, pull it apart and check for power on the yellow wire coming from the headlight switch, with the headlight switch turned on. If no power, the headlight switch is bad. If there is power there, then the dimmer switch must be bad.

I have a 2005 lowrider. There are 3 wires that go to the headlight. Black, White, and Yellow. I trashed the bulk connector to install a headlight modulator. I need to remove the modulator because is...

The black wire is the ground wire. The yellow wire is the low beam light wire. And there should be two white wires. One wire is the hot wire that comes from the switch and is the high beam light wire. The other white wire connects to the bulb along with the other white wire and it's for the high beam light indicator, the blue light that comes on when you switch to high beam. To determine which connection is the high beam connection on the light itself, connect a hot wire to one connection and then the other. One will be brighter than the other.

Good Luck

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,

Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

2003 FLSTCI high beam works, low beam and spots do not work. Do I have a plug problem under the gas tank or a problem in the H/L handlebar switch?

sounds to me like the low beam filament in the headlight bulb is blown test for voltage on the yellow wire at the headlight with it set to low beam if you have voltage here you more then likely have a blown low beam filament

No Hi Beam on 93 Camry

The headlamp circuit is rather simple. From the 15 amp RH headlamp fuse, there is a red w/yellow trace that goes to the RH high beam. Out of the 15 amp LH headlamp fuse, the wire going to the LH Hi beam is solid red. Both of these wires should have power when the headlamp relay is energized. The wires from the Hi Beam bulbs going back to the switch should both be red w/black trace. The wire going from the headlamp relay to power the 2 15 amp fuses is white. The headlamp switch applies a ground to illuminate either the Lo Beams or the Hi Beams.
