I believe holding the flash to pass switch too long eventually damages it and the whole left switch pod would have to be replaced to fix it unless you can take it apart and fix it but they don't sell repair parts.At one point, the yellow turning botton did work the lights; so I taped closed. That was a temporary fix. I'm back to no lights. I'll check the white wire in the hi/low switch.
You have one problem why they were not working but holding the flash to pass can damage the spring (it carries the current and was not built to be used constantly only mometarily) in that switch. There was another guy on here a while ago that was trying to find a replacement spring for it because Suzuki didn't sell repair parts.MJR, the lights were not working before I tape to pass switch, Are you sure?
Hey Jim, you could take the whole switch assembly apart. I've done it a couple of times, but honestly you could try the less is more approach too which might work. Grab yourself a rag, a can of WD40 or other suitable spray lubricant, one that has the long thin plastic nozzle. Place the rag under the switch housing by whatever means necessary. It's simply to soak up any excess lubricant. Take that long thin nozzle attached to the can of lubricant, and poke it in amongst the switches, in between the small gap of the starter button as best as you can, squirt liberally all the while pressing and depressing that friggin starter button... until it works itself loose and it should. Spray a little more for good measure once the starter button springs back out as it's designed to do. This method has worked for me, on both my K4 and K7 scoot... I'm hoping this might not be something needed on the L4. But time will tell...Hi, My name is Jim, and I am in East Texas. I am having the same problem as you have described here. I was backing my bike (an '06 Burgman 650), out of my shop after storing it for the winter. I had a trinkle charger on it all winter. and while backing, the headlight
went out. I carried it to the Suzuki shop to have it checked. I figured it was some relay that went out. But later, when I found your site, and info. it sounded exactly the same problem as I was having. When I got it to the shop, I told the manager to go ahead and
replace the starter switch, as it was getting weak, and had to cmpress it real hard to make contact. Then the button did not spring back out. It just stayed flat against the housing. But when I found your post, I figured I could fix it myself, and save the $80 an hour. So, I brought it home, but haven't had a chance to work on it yet. Could you please give me some advise before I start on it??????
Thank's so much;
What MJR said.Here's a photo of one taken apart. More photos here. http://www.gotgroceries.net/modules.php?name=gallery2&g2_itemId=781&g2_page=3
All '05-up pushing the starter switch in disables the headlights unless someone has wired bypassing it, which I wouldn't put past some owners. The fuse box at the dash just pulls off its mounting tabs. You definitely have a wiring issue it sounds like.reading other head lite problems, mine seams to be a little unique. I have no hi-beams, period. the flash to pass does not work and the stat does not turn of the low beams. I can get some voltage at the fuse clip for hi-beams(4-5 volts) other times 12 volts until I put the fuse back in. I have changed fuses several times. I think I have a loose connection on the back side of the fuse block. trouble is that I do not know how to getr it out far enough to try and repair it. Help if you can, it will be appreciated.
