94 XV535 lights blown / not working

PostAuthor: Barberetti » Sun Oct 08, 2017 10:19 am

Hi all,

Something has caused the left indicators to stop working, and blown the bulbs in the rear light. All I'm getting from the indicators is a buzzing sound from the right cover where the relays etc are. As for the rear light, both filaments are blown in 1 bulb, and one filament blown in the other. The semi working one works in both sockets. So, no running or brake lights, just a park light from the one bulb.

Any suggestions would be great thanks!

Sounds like a short of some kind.

Time to grab the multi-meter and start testing!

Also, would probably be worth while to disassemble the left-hand switch and make sure everything is making proper contact.

I noticed you have the UK model, so I've attached the appropriate image below.

Yeah I checked the left hand switch and all looked good. Oh well, time to buy a multi-meter I guess!

Thanks for the wiring diagram :):
