tail light problems

Recommended Posts

On my 2003 Arctic Cat 250,   with the headlights on, I have no tail light /no stop light.

with headlights off, I have brake lights, no tail lights. Where should I start looking for my problem?

Start by  checking the  ground wires  for the tail  lights. I would suspect  there is corrosion preventing a proper ground. The  tail  lights  are feeding  back through the common power  wire connecting headlight and tail light .. When  headlights are on  that  circuit is powered so it cannot  act as a  ground.

Thanks for the help. My tail light was  rusted  inside,and was not getting a ground. Rusted so bad, I'm going to have to replace the whole thing. Thanks again.

      I installed a LED bar, but have yet to wire it in. Would like to wire it into light switch circuit for low beams, assuming it will stay on for high beams also. I am an old fart so am looking for an easily accessible place if possible. 

      Other concern is current draw. It takes 2 amps. So wherever it goes, the circuit has got to handle an additional 2 amps.
      Any help will be appreciated.

      I bought a used 2017 Outty 1000r and have been hearing about folks melting plastics due to excessive heat near the pipe.
      It's winter here & I've been plowing my drive for a couple months without heat issues. I'd like any input if this will be a problem come summer?!?
      TIA

      I just got a 2003 arctic cat 400 and I'm having a time finding where the cdi box plug is located. Guy said he took it off and forgot where it was located. Made no sense to me but hey what do I know. Any help would be appreciated.

      I'm joining to get help and opinions on my z... I just had the entire bottom end and carb rebuilt new rings and plug rose it maybe 4 hours and on the way home it backfired and blew the carb boot from the head and now it won't start? Getting fuel and fire but when I check the plug its covered in fuel? I've checked time and clearance everything seems to be fine? Just cant figure it out?

      Hello - I have just had delivered my 2004 registered King Quad 300.
      The gear change is pretty fierce.  Pretty hard to get into gear from neutral on the foot pedal and when I select reverse on the hand lever, it jumps into reverse with a hell of a kick.
      I am waiting for a service manual to arrive, but in the meantime, has anyone any suggestions please?
      Thank you.
