driving lights 3 Years, 4 Months ago  
My driving lights went out and I can't get power to them . Does anyone know if there is a relay or module specific for them. The headlight still works. They are the factory lights on an 05 silverado that come on once the bike starts up .
Thanks, Bucketlist.

Pull the lights and check the ground in the bucket.

I believe there is a fuse in the headlight bucket for the aux lights.
One of the auz lights should have a switch mounted on the side. That is a cheap switch so it might either be bad or needs the wires resoldered to it.
Other than that, there is no relay or fuse as far as I know. Everything in contained in the headlight and aux lights.
At least that is the way my stock aux lights are.

I'm searching, but I thought I saw something that referenced the Dyna 3000 install that didn't handle the aux light from the ignition switch very well (on early models) and gave people some trouble.

Apologize for the lack of clarification and direction, but I vaguely remember reading something about it. If you have a Dynatek Ignition module installed, you may want to follow that lead, at least to cross it off.

Could just be a bad switch, those things are just crap.

Re:driving lights 3 Years, 4 Months ago  
I'm don't want to hijack your thread but my questions are still on topic. On the return trip from our Canada ride last week I stopped at a car wash to get rid of some bugs and mud. I went to wash the bugs off of my passing lamps and when I did, the whole bar rocked back a little and then just fell off and hung there by the wires. It didn't break at the weld. It broke in the mounting bracket right next to it. I guess 53,000 miles of vibration had fatigued the metal to the point it just broke. I was able to get back on the road with some vinyl zip ties and later I reinforced it with some hose clamps. Has anyone else seen this? I'm considering having it welded but then I'd have to have it plated again. I can get a new OEM replacement on ebay for $80 + $16.50 shipping. Does anyone on the forum have a used one they would sell for less than that? Any recommendations? Thanks!

Ok. Here's where I saw the reference to the Dyna 3000 and passing lamp problem. It was in a tech article on this site. Scroll down on the article to the comments made by users.

If you go to Dynatech's website www.dynaonline.com you will find that only the 2005 Roadstar has the passing lamp problem.

Re:driving lights 3 Years, 4 Months ago  
2005 silverado driving light went out left side. Checked bulb, bulb burned out, element broken off. replaced bulb. now left side still doesnt work and the right side comes on when it wants to when the switch is engaged to on position. The switch is a piece of junk so I thought I would replace the switch with a better one. But before that would check out the wiring to the lights. what concerns me is that the right one comes on when it wants too. Anyone have any ideas?? if there is a fuse in the headlight bucket I assume that if the fuse was blown neither light would go on when the switch was flipped. maybe it is the ground wire in the left bucket. Just rambling here. This bike has a lot of little problems. I had a suzuki for eight years before with nary one problem. Oh yeah its devewloped an oil leak too. Yikes what next????
