Head light won’t shut off

Just bought a 2002 volusia. Got it home and the front headlight won’t shut off when the engine is off and the key is removed. Any ideas?

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!


I would guess that the ignition switch has gone bad. Pull the fuse for the light to keep from killing other things and then check out the switch. Most likely it overheated and fused together the contacts so that it doesn't shut off when you move the key to off.

Yeah...I'd pull the main fuse till you get it figured out.

Did previous owner do any noticeable/unorthodox mods? Possible linked the headlight to taillight aux. When the ignition is turned past off/lock position, there is an auxiliary/hazard light setting. I'd also suggest checking that.

Excellent proposition!
