Hello everyone! I hope y'all are having a great evening! Has anyone installed an LED bulb into the headlight and now your high beam indicator stays on? I forgot some detail...I am riding a 2000 Vstar 1100 classic!

The issue with the led bulb is it feeds power back to your cluster through the high beam ground side when in low beam. I'm not sure how to solve it other than putting a diode in the wiring to stop the power flow going back to the dash bulb on the wrong side.

I tried an led bulb and had the same issue so i just didn't bother trying to solve it and found an off-road use atv bulb that was 60/100w and used it instead.

Thanks for the info...that helps out! It actually is not even letting the headlight change from high beam to low beam. But now i have a starting point.. thanks again! My apologies for duplicate message in the private message.. still figuring out navigation on cell.
