So about four days my headlights didnt turn on when i started my scoot, its a kymco people 125s, i thought the bulbs died, i bout new halogen bulbs hooked them up turned on the scoot and nothing, Sad ..turned the scoot off , fiddled with it turned it back on and for a brief second both lights came on !! then died and havnt came on since then, i looked at all the connections i even took apart the horn /blinker / light mech to look inside, looks good , everything else still works both blinkers ,break lights, and horn . So im at a loss i have no idea what to do and cant aforrd to take it some were , any , and all suggestions would be great thanks, i no its a kymco but im sure people have seen something like this before

Check the fuses?

I'd check those first, then I'd check the switch. Then I'd start poking around with a multimeter and checking all of the connections and wiring.

You can buy a multimeter at any hardware store. Mine is great and ran around $20. It's similar to this one:

There are downloads of the Service Manual all over the net; I found many via Google.

Did you touch the bulbs with your bare hands when installing? They should always be handled with gloves or wiped very thoroughly after installation.
