Headlight no longer working..
hey dear FJR owners.. you're my last hope.
i have an electrical issue I cannot resolve. here is the story:
I had to change nose/headlamp/forks of my GenII after an accident. I was able to put all back together to a nice state. While I was waiting for the last parts I tested the electrical system and all seemed to be working fine.
then about three weeks ago the headlamp decided not to turn on. This is what I've done so far:
Checked the bulbs (tester for conductivity), tried new ones JIC
Checked the 25A fuse (same as above)
Uninstalled the nose to access all the relays:
there are two relays on left of the speedometer. one is for hazards, other is either dimmer or on/off headlamp. tested that one and it works (following directions on yamaha mechanic manual)
in front of the battery there are other three relays: fan motor, headlamp dimmer or on/off and a third line I can't remember. Tested all of them and all work.
I entered the diagnostic menu and under d52 trouble light goes on/off 5 times, I hear clicking but still no light.
I'm running low on ideas. There are still two things that I have doubts about:
when I checked the voltage at the light bulb socket, i get a reading of around 6V (shouldn't it be 12V?), second thing is that larger relay under the headlight (picture below 5VK-81950-30-00), I can't test it because my tester won't get in the small openings. I know it's for other functions such as fuel pump, main switch etc. Does it have anything to do with headlamps? I could try to buy a new one just in case. I've visually checked all the wires/connections and I can't see anything obviously wrong. Any other things you can think of that I might have missed?
Without lights I can't get an MOT, therefore no insurance, therefore I can't ride it to a mechanic. It's diving me insane!
Any help will be rewarded with a pint, shipped right to your door!
