Lighting Tests and Checks

The battery provides power for operation of the headlight, taillight, license light, and meter lights. If none of the above operates, always check battery voltage before proceeding further. Low battery voltage indicates either a faulty battery, low battery electrolyte, or a defective charging system. See CHARGING SYSTEM for checks of the battery and charging system. Also check fuse condition. Replace any "open" fuses. There are individual fuses for various circuits (see the complete circuit diagram).

HEADLIGHT DOES NOT COME ON WHEN ENGINE IS RUNNING
