Motobecane dies when head light is turned off

Hi,

My son has a 78 50v that has developed a rather strange problem . When you switch the head light to the off position the engine dies. Also, the horn is not working... I suspect that on of the coils on the magneto has a break, what do you guys think?

Regards,

Rick

Well , I just figured it out... the contacts on the brake light switch have pulled out of the plastic housing causing an open circuit somewhere. I simply just held the contacts together with it running and switched headlight off and it didn't die. The horn worked too..........

That is strange... Man, that is pretty funky wiring set up !

Don't turn off headlight! lol! sometimes the kill switch and horn button can cause this...get a manual ans sort it out! Good Luck!
