Hi, I'm new on this forum. I have a k1100 Rs 1994. The headlights won't turn off even if I take off the key. :sad I tried to put the key in any position, parking/off/on and the headlight is on. Any idea or suggestions?

Thanks
Mimmo

I am guessing it is a relay switch. Relays are 1 inch square electronic boxes that know if the key is on/off to send full battery power to the accessory (your light). I think your relay is busted, got wet, etc. Take your plastic panels off, locate your headlight and turn signal relays. Dry it out, look for loose wires. Did you power wash your bike? Fall in a creek?

See link on similar guy's problem.

Looks like a $25 part fix.
