Just picked up a 98 500 4x4 with 810 miles on it, traded it for a plastic john boat. The thing looks to be in awesome shape, much better than expected for a 98 model, just needs the top end put back together. Anyways here is my problem. When I turn on the headlights, the low beams and running lights come on, but there are no brake lights. When I try to turn on the high beams the headlights turn off all together, and still no brake lights. I checked the fuses and the bulbs and they all seem to be okay. Anybody else having this problem or have any ideas to what is going on? thanks

Well, are you applying the hand brake lever? The light doesn't come on with the atv, just when you hit the brakes. I am not familiar with the 98's but are there two separate head light bulbs for high and low beams? I would check to see if the bulbs are good with a direct 12v source and if they are good then check for 12v and ground at the headlight connectors.

Yeah, I've already checked the filaments on the brake lights they are ok, I'll probably just throw in a new 1157 just to be safe. As for the headlights, are they sealed on a 98, or can i remove the bulbs?
