Angry immediate assistance - I can't see - February 2, 2009, 11:36 AM

A & Q

A. I have a brand new wiring harness
B. I have after market fog lights for headlights.
C. They are wired into the OEM headlight plugs - professionaly done using wires included with lights...nothing "extra" was done.
D. Have been working ever since, and worked this morning.
E. I have no headlight HI (because they are fog lights and not wired up that way)

Now the issue....

why am I continuously blowing a 15A fuse? It's for my headlight LO.

I put in the fuse...turn the key...POP.

It happened on the way to NJ, put in a 15A fuse before I left NJ...worked fine, got me home in the dark. Now...I can put in a fuse and turn the key and literally watch the fuse the blow.

I started the bike this morning and the lights were on...let it warm up, went in the house to get dressed...came back out...blown. Didn't have any extra...so I rode down the block to Autozone.

So I bought 15A fuses...POP (it takes 15A fuses)

So I bought 20A fuses...POP

So I bought 25A fuses...POP

Now I got a gang of fuckin fuses and no headlights. This is the only fuse that is blowing.

Can a ground come loose causing such a problem?

TIA

I kept on blowing the ignition relay on my bike, when the real problem was that the brake light connector had popped and was arcing against the frame. It sounds like a short, so go to every terminus on the wiring harness and inspect the connection. If that yields nothing, go to every zip tie and make sure it hasn't cut the wire insulation. Keep going from there.

this will be a new bike by the time i'm done with it.

and DD did the wiring, did a great job with the entire harness, stator, and R/R. So if I have to take it back to a shop...of course it'll go back to them.
