It might sound silly but you are checking for headlight operation while the engine is running, correct ? Its happened before.  If you turn on the key without starting the engine, do you have running lights?

On my old virago, the starter button would get barely stuck in. Enough for the bike to run and starter not keep engaging but the headlight would be off. Had to pull out the switch the last tiny bit

Ok so as mentioned earlier: engine HAS to be running!

Check your fuse first, connections second. Have you Or anyone else done any work to the bike recently? Did you just wash it?

operate the Hi/Lo switch rapidly, does that cause them to flicker on? (Dirty switch)  have you wired ANYTHING into the bike that’s not factory? 

I have some troubleshooting info I can PM you beyond this. Lmk.

Hi, I checked the lights control module and it has power running to it, I then removed it and tried it on another tracer and it works fine, thanks for your help ,paul

Only one side stays on, while the other side stays dim during normal running operations...then the other side turns on when HI beam is selected... both lights do not light up as LOW beam during normal operations...
