Harley Davidson Headlight Problem

Question I have a 2011 Road King Classic. Recently I began to notice at night a Harley-Davidson headlight problem and passing lamps would blink off and back on occasionally. The Harley Davidson headlight problems worsened and looking at the service manual, I decided the headlight relay must be bad. When I pulled the headlight relay, I noticed some corrosion on the connectors on the relay itself. I ordered a new relay, cleaned the connectors in the fuse box and installed the new relay. That didn’t fix the problem. Now, the headlight does not always come on when I turn the ignition switch on. If I turn the handle bars side to side, the headlight and passing lamps will come on. I took the cover off the fuse box and put my finger on the headlight relay, when I turn the ignition switch on, I can feel the relay click. I’m now thinking that there must be a loose connector or ground wire inside the headlight nacelle, any guidance would be appreciated.

Answer Joe, throw a towel over your front fender and remove your head light bucket. Inspect your head light, head light plug, and harness. Make sure your connections can be secure and are without corrosion. While your nacelle is open, try to get a look at your passing lamp switch and it’s harness. If you do not see anything obvious, plug your headlight in while it hangs loose. Turn on your ignition switch and tug on the related wiring harness. If you can not get the light to go out, move up to your left side switch housing. Tug and poke around that harness while you trace it down into the nacelle. Play with your hi/low switch and your passing lamp switch. If you had a dead short you would be blowing a fuse. This sounds more like a bad connection or a bad switch. Thanks for the question. Let us know how you make out.

Hogger Follow-Up

I did as you suggested and found a pin/socket combination that had overheated. I also found a non-factory wire in the nacelle that was apparently connected to the back of the headlight plug at one time. There is a shiny spot on the handlebars that indicates a clamp for an accessory mount, maybe a GPS, so I’m guessing someone powered the accessory off the headlight plug. The pin/socket that was damaged was for a yellow wire, same as the wire on the headlight plug. I bought this bike from the local Harley dealer, it was from the “executive fleet”. The oil in the trans and crankcase was clean, the primary was nasty. You’d think those guys would take better care of their bikes! Anyway, I’ve replaced tires and battery and now $34 for a connector, I bought the bike for $4500 less than a new one, so I’m still way ahead.

Thanks for your reply!

    I have a spooky electrical problem that just popped up. I have HD Daymaker headlight and Kuryakan Auxillary LED lights on my 2012 Heritage Softail. These lights have worked well for years and many miles in the rain, some of it very heavy thunderstorms…so what, I ride 🙂 Last week in a light rain both headlight and auxiliaries failed completely. I got the error code for a Headlight lowbeam short, low and the BCM part number, mine is the supposed better BCM with the A on the end. Okay, here are the symptoms…the bright works fine, as does the headlight UNLESS I turn on the auxiliaries and that shuts down the headlight too, riding dark with only running lights, brakes/signals work fine as does the bright headlight setting. Turning the bike off and to Aux, then back to Ign…headlight works again but only if the auxiliaries are switched off. Repeated riding and shut down the headlight works fine, as does switching back and forth between bright and normal. It would seem there is a possible short in the auxiliary lighting or switch, I am hoping it is anything but over half a grand for a ‘must program at dealership’ BCM box!

      I also noted that the red led light on the speedo dial isn’t on unless I flip on the aux lights..and all goes dark.

        Well it’s fixed now and thankfully for nothing but my time. Using forums and the service manual I took the nacelle apart and loosened and shifted the gas tank back in order to remove the entire headlight/Aux lamp harness and switch. The LED lights still had dielectric grease and were clean from my own install but the rest of the connections, including under the gas tank, were lightly corroded so I used 400 grit sandpaper rolled into tiny rolls and contact cleaner to get everything shiny…and I mean each and every connection and the switch. Then globbed them all with dielectric grease and put it all back together and walaah! Problem solved, I even rode it in some of the heavy rain we’ve been having here in the Houston area and solid as a rock. Now I’ve further knowledge of my bike and how it’s built, how it works and it all feels great, thanks for your input. There are great resources like Dr. Google to find bike forums and Fixmyhog and what I found is that it’s common for this to happen, especially near the sea and riding in the rain. So I will be doing this to all the connectors I find to help prevent further mysteries…it’s like maintenance really. Considering the time it took and that some dealers want to sell expensive parts and new bikes I saved around $200 doing it myself. Thanks 🙂

    I have a problem with my headlight and passing lamps on my 2001 Roadking cutting off intermittently. I checked the fuses, connections and the plugs. Nothing seems to be wrong with that. Sometimes it works, but then suddenly it will just go out and visa versa. Is there a headlight relay that I might be overlooking? The rest of my lights, tail light, turn signals, running lights, brake lights and fender lights are all working

    I recently bought an LED replacement H4 build for my headlight on my 2013 Softail. The bulb only flashes for a second whenswitched to high beam then reverts to low beam, as if it is nor receiving enough draw (as would happen if the high beam bulb was burnt out). The LED bulb supposingly has a resistor in it but I can not confirm that and if it does it is not adding enough resistance. Interested in how I might correct this problem.

        I would love to know what you found out, because I am having the same symptoms, have tried 2 different LEDs (Pathfinder H4SFX,and Headwinds 8-9032-H4) with the same results, Headwinds suggested their CANBUS filter (# 8-9030CB-H4) which made no difference. Pathfinder, I see, now offers similar filter, but they have never gotten back with me, yet…hmmm everybody seems to be second guessing from this point. This is on a 2012 Heritage Classic, Dino

    I have a 2012 ultra limited and the other nite I was at a rally and noticed my lights not on I pulled over checked my fuses and all was good checked my relay switched out with one I
    Knew was working. All good got help to a shop and pulled my
    Faring off and test lighted the harness and no power to
    It with the ignition on even the spots wasn’t working. Tested my high low beams nothing. I found a continues power wire that came on when you turned you ignition switch on and spliced it into my
    Harness and now my
    High beams are on and you can’t change them. What is going on.

      Hi, Shane. Could be a multitude of issues on an electrical system that is almost 1/4 century old. Suggest removing your outer primary. Grab your test light and a multimeter and start inspecting/testing. https://www.fixmyhog.com/videos/electrical/Could be a number of issues on a wiring harness/switches/breakers/plugged connections that are almost 1/4 century old. Sounds like you might have a bad ignition switch but that may not be the reason that you have a breaker that is tripping. Suggest removing your outer fairing and grabbing your test light & multimeter.

    Hello, this is probably an old question. We have a 05 Dyna and the Daymaker runs both LED’s on high beam. Just purchased a 7″ Daymaker for our 16 Heritage and this Daymaker switches off the low beam on high setting. We live in a heavily forested area and I would like both beams if possible. HD switches off my spots when I use high beam. I do not want to harm the Daymaker by using creative wiring, any ideas sir?

    I installed those very bright daymaker headlights and the two daymaker aux lights and now my volt gauge appears to be pushing 14+ volts most of the time. I never really noticed how high my gauge used to read as when I took a quick glance at it, it appeared to be on the plus, charging side but I never recalled how much it was charging, just thought it was working fine. Now I’m wondering if the lights are drawing too much voltage or is everything normal and ok. Thanks in advance for any help.

    On 2011 heritage classic noticed at night headlight would get brighter like high and low beam were on at same time. This would only last a few seconds then return to normal. When it happens it kicked my speedometer light off then it would come back on after a few seconds. Change out lights with leds next night high beam went out on led. What is going on?

    Have a 03 Road Glide with a headlight problem. Have checked the headlight plugs and they are clean with no problems. I changed out the headlight fuse and thought this fixed the problem. Today I rode the bike for about an hour and once again both headlights went off. I removed the seat and left side cover and checked the headlight and it works again. Any ideas or would it be better to take the bike to the stealership because I know very little about electrical wiring? Don’t want to take it to a shade tree mechanic to start cutting and splicing wires.

      Hello Jason,

      Start by checking for possible Diagnostic Trouble Codes.
      https://www.fixmyhog.com/video/troubleshoot-with-harley-error-codes-008010/
      If you have an aftermarket seat with a steel pan, it may cause interference with your security antenna.
      Verify that your security antenna is in its correct position.
      Try disconnecting your battery ground for a minute, then reconnect. Sometimes this helps resolve electrical issues like this.

    I have a 97 FXDL and last season my headlight suddenly wasn’t lit up when I turned on my ignition. I took the light assembly apart and the plug assembly was melted. I replaced it and put everything back together and my headlight now works, but then we noticed my low beam was very low and my high beam display light is dimly lit when on low beam. We checked the light bulb and it’s fine. There is 12 volts going to the plug assembly for the headlight and the headlight works normal when we disconnected it from the bike and hooked a batter up to it. My batter is brand new which I replaced last fall. Everyone says it’s a ground issue and suggests I replace the ignition which is under my seat. Is that where I should start? I doesn’t make sense to me but I’m thinking it’s in the switches somewhere in my handlebars. I can’t ride at night so I really need to resolve this problem. Thank you in advance!

      Hello Tadhg,

      You will need to access the toggle switch.
      Remove the power supply wire from the toggle switch. Use a test light or multimeter to determine which wire to remove.
      Remove your headlight.
      You should have an open orange accessory wire near your head light plug.
      You can extend and use this wire to constantly power your toggle switch.
      You will then have passing lamps regardless of hi beam / low beam.

    I have an 08 FLSTN . It has sudden dimming of the lights on high beam, to about half brightness…it is not going to low beam. When this happens..I switch to low beam…after a min it too instantly goes to half brightness…when I switch to high beam it is bright again for a min or two…then instantly goes to half brightness..and so on.
    Each time I switch…it stays bright for maybe a min…on both beams .

    Similar issue, but not quite… Riding a 2012 FXDF and swopped out dual halogen headlights w/ 7″ bucket and Headwinds H4-LHW LED. Low beam works fine; high beam comes on then switches off after ten minutes (although I can flash). Headwinds suggested CanBus Filter 8-9030CV-H4 which improved high-beam ‘on’ to an hour, but still switches off and will not switch back on until bike is turned off then back on (again, will flash). Also diagnostic throwing BCM B2131 High beam output open error. Thnx for help.

    – Here’s an odd one. 03 Road King. Lights do not turn off when I turn the ignition switch off. Replaced the switch and worked fine twice. Now it is back to the lights staying on when I turn the ignition switch off!! Sometimes it turns off when I put the kick stand down and get off the bike. Other times the lights will stay on for as long as 15m. Thanks for your assistance.

    I’ve got a 2002 1200C. Ican get only the high beam to work. No voltage on low beam at the headlight. I’ve checked the switch and I have power on both high and low there with one wire having continuous voltage. Under the tank there is a harness connector to the headlight and there I’m only getting 1 continuous hot wire and my high beam wire is hot when switch to high. Where could I be losing my low beam power at? Is there a relay? I can’t find it!
