I connected a test light to the headlight connector up front and when I push in the headlight fuse, (with force) I get a light power reading, but when I reconnect the headlamp, nothing. I switched the fuses around, disconnected, cleaned, reattached the junction box, connected headlamp and applied force to the fuse but still no power to the headlamp (although I do get a light reading with testlight attached to the headlight connector, and to the two spots where the fuse connects.

Any ideas as to why my headlight don't function anymore? Do I need a new/used junction box? or any other connection to check? Ride safe.
try bending the blades on the fuse a little you may have streched out the connections in the jb if that isnt it you will be needing another jb
