Hi everyone,

Just noticed yesterday that my lights stopped working. What do you think the likely cause is? Bad switch?

Is this the stock lighting or a DS kit? If it's stock it could be a number of things. It could be a bad switch, disconnected wire, etc. Also if the AC regulator fails or is disconnected you will blow both bulbs. Or it could just be that both bulbs went out by coincidence. :)

Stock Lighting. Don't know what happened. I had to take off front light and know I plugged it back in. Neither front or back is working.

My switch fried at about 500 miles. I jury rigged something together and it still works.

Check the wiring on the top of the cylinder of the BACK brake. I have a '98 and the wiring was very close to the exhaust, causing it to melt and short out the entire system. New wire, repositioned, solved my problem.
