    Hi,
    I had a lamp indication come up on my screen and rightly so the headlight lamp was no working.

    I purchased a new H7, installed it and no go.

    I checked the voltage at the plug and zero so I am assuming the fuse has blown.

    I can seem to locate the fuse box.

    Can anyone advise??

    Thanks in advance.

    TerryV

    Your bike does not have any fuses. The computer (ZFE) controls all the circuits and will shut one down before too many amps will cause a problem. This is the same system that sensed a blown bulb.

    The computer resets itself when you turn the key off, and boots up when you turn it on. This is why you should wait until the warning light goes out before starting the engine after turning the key to the "on" position.

    So to your problem: make sure you start the engine. The headlight will not come on unless the engine is running (nor will you get voltage at the plug). If the bulb is good, then the lamp error will reset itself. If that doesn't work, you should check the new bulb for continuity to make sure it is good.

    I had a problem with my 2013 800... it turned out to be a loose connection at the plug where the harness plugs into the headlamp assembly or the back of the cluster... I forget which but I could wiggle the plugs around and get the light to come on or off.

    Thanks for that - you nailed it in one.

    Once I started the bike the fault cleared.

    Cheers
