1994 EXT 580 efi headlight electrical issue
I could use some help.
I purchased a 1994 ext with some issues. I thought I had all the issues fixed and went to start the sled. 1st pull it fired right up. As it was running the headlight would flash and then it blew. The motor was still running fine and the rear tail light was a solid red. I also had brake lights when I applied the brake. As I was fixing some issues I did notice the connector for the headlight was deformed and melted. I replaced it with a new plug and headlight. I used my ohm meter and did some voltage checks while the machine was running. All I found was an inconsistent reading coming from the voltage. Never had a constant 12V. I shut the sled down and brought it back into the garage. I then proceeded to ohm out the wires. Each wire (3) would provide a connection to ground except for when I would toggle the bright switch, then only 2 would find a path to ground. Any ideas on what the issue is? I assume it isn't a stator since my rear tail light is constant. Do the bright switches go bad? Any help would be appreciated. I was hoping to have this sled fixed so my wife and I could take our sleds and go riding.
