My driver side headlight wiring started smoking so I unplugged it. I pulled the wiring apart and cut out the bad wiring but there was a diode or resistor in the wiring. Does anyone know what the resistor is that is inline? Does anyone have a wiring diagram? I found the brown and white wires are hot wires but not sure which one goes to the halo and which one goes to the headlight? I am also not sure which one has the resistor as it was all melted together. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
I had 3 sets of headlights fail on my Duruxx due to melting wires. After checking with a lot of owners this has been a typical issues on the Duruxx and Oreion and very costly to replace the headlights. I purchased the new Rebel LED headlights last month and half the price and they are a much better quality and very bright.
I just took a 2015 Oreion Reeper in trade for my Harley Davidson as I could not do two wheels safely any longer. This Reeper is in near new condition (only 750 kilometers on it and everything on it was working until I just trailered it from Texas to Florida. Now the headlight/taillight stem switch will not turn on the headlights and tail lights. All other lights come on with the switches on the dash (halo light switch, etc., as do the turn signals, emergency flashers, etc. Have checked all fuses listed as relating to headlights. Fuses all appeared good and I swapped them around to see if another problem cropped up but none did. Does anyone have a suggestion for the cause of the problem and the repair necessary. I would have to rent a trailer and haul it about 100 miles to get to a dealer and would like to repair myself. Have been a "shade tree" mechanic for almost 60 years but this is a new animal for me and the owners manual in right next to useless, in my estimation. Will greatly appreciate any/all feedback on this problem. Thanks.
Dennis, I apologize for the inconvenience but we do not allow guest to post on the Forum there for your post will have to be deleted. We ask that you please join and repost. It doesn't cost anything but a minute of time to sign up and then you can receive notifications when someone replies to your question. I would make sure you have power coming from the switch they do have a tendency of going bad we've had several members who have had to replace switches. Again I apologize for the inconvenience as it is foreign policy thank you.
I have a 2017 rebel r2 the head lights come on with the key in the run position with the switch off,also have no power with the key in the acc position,I kinda need a wire diagram for dummies (what color goes where) just bought this unit last week with 25 miles on it didn't know if the lights are supposed to be on all the time
I have not heard that the headlights are auto with key on. Possible, but I have heard that. Does this rebel have LED headlights?
Maybe they are different. When you say no power in acc do you mean to headlights? I know they are not energized in the acc position as the acc position is actually the key off, but not removed or ahead one click.
Hopefully the forum resident electrical expert lugnut will chime in.

Yea Phil the switch doesn't function like a US manufactured car. The acc position is with the key turn all the way on to the on run position and returned back to the off position. Until you pull the key out of the column does the switch actually cut it self off. So say if you pull into the garage and shut the engine off and don't remove the key it will run the battery down from not taking the key out and turning off the accessories. We do have wiring diagrams if you need them but unless your troubleshooting something will you will not need it. And it is strange to look at. Private Message me if needed. And yes the key does turn on and off the headlights.
Ok thanks for the info,I'll try the key tonight.I've seen some with just the blue halos on with no headlights guess they have tinkered think I may do the same😬 my driver side headlight only works when it wants to but when it does the bright works,on the passenger side the light works all the time but no bright sunco where I bought it is 4hrs away so I'll be tinkering anyway
Yeah I thought that's how they were set up but even with headlight switch to off position lights are on no halo then parking light position halo comes on with light, full on position no change (because headlights are already on)thanks for all the help this forum is better than talking to the salesman lol
First thing to do is remove the whole headlight buckets and open them up and look inside for bad or loose grounds. Usually, its were they have shot the screws in the retaining frame around the lights. They overshoot the screws and it breaks the little legs holding the whole thing together. You can read how I fixed mine on the forum under electrical stuff. That's why you have a halo on one side and not the other and one headlight working and not the other. When the switches fail you don't get anything. Except for the four-way flasher switches. Sometimes you only get one side to flash and it is in the switch. I scrapped my switches a long time ago. Before they failed me when I needed them. Ps: the light buckets are a booger to get out and very tight to fit in their place. Patients will have their rewards here.
