    '95 R1100RS No running lights

    Brake light and turn signals work, but nothing from the running lights. Can't be on the road at night, though I try to avoid that anyway. I'm on the road, so can't check with voltmeter until I return home, but the fuses are all OK. As stated, turn signals (front and rear) work, as does the rear brake light. I'm thinking it can't be the ground either, as the turn signals are working.

    Any ideas?

    Thx,

    Is it possible that the bulb is just blown? Also, does the flash-to-pass illuminate the high beam?

    Anton:

    Thanks! Yes, all 4 turn signals work, and the flash-to-pass headlight feature works as well. I'm back home now and will pull the bulbs, just figured that it would be unlikely that all 4 bulbs are bad. I'll pull them in a few days and check.

    Thanks again,

    So by running lights you mean high, low, tail and the marker bulb in the headlight? How about the instrument illumination? Do you have a euro headlight switch on the right side?
