Default Yamaha Headlight problem

I have a 2015 Yamaha carbureted cart. It has LED headlights with high and low beams. Whenever I drive through even a small puddle the headlights blink off and almost immediately go back on again. It only happens in the rain. Any ideas of the cause?

Thanks

I've got the same thing going on intermittently. My kids say I need to pay the Electric Bill.

You are getting a short from the water somewhere getting in contact with a wire that needs to be made waterproof with some sort of insulation. You need to find where the uninsulated wire is located and fix the problem. Liquid electrical tape works good for such a job. Fixing the problem is easy, finding where the problem is being caused us the hard part.

I agree with topchfa. I would start by taping all connections up that are exposed to weather. I would also look into the light switch. Maybe water is getting up into that area also.
