What did you jump it with?
Is the battery fully charged now or what?
Does the bike run now?
You should pull the bulbs and see if there good.
Look in your owners book it will show you where the fuse are and check them with meter or put in new ones just in case.

Fuse might be blown. Never jump the bike again. Always recharge a dead battery with a battery tender.

Jack, there's a push button switch on the TC's up under the lower triple tree for these lights that is notorious for failing-pull off the switch & twist the two wires together and wire nut or tape and tuck it back and you'll be good to go.Brian

Sit on the bike and with your left hand reach under the lower triple tree, you'll feel a micro switch with a rubber boot covering the plunger. try clicking a few times to clean the contacts-if lights still don't come on pull the switch and hook the wires together (they"ll only come on on low beam)

Simple FYI - I found this thread simply because I had read a review stating something along the lines of "not being able to find the switch for the driving lights without an owner's manual"....

The above quote got me looking in the right direction. However, the switch on my particular bike was on the right underside of the triple tree, not the left....Not a huge deal, but just in case someone else starts looking on the left (like I did), this could save a little time.

Enjoy!

Sorry, I'm a little late catching this thread. But maybe this info will help if you want to get a new switch (and not pay an arm and leg to Victory).

I had the same problem some time back on my '02TC - the switch went bad. Actually corrosion on the contacts inside the switch made it flakey. Luckily we have a great electronics dealer in town so I took him the switch. He took one look at it, walked into the back and about 30 seconds later came out with an exact replacement. Even the original rubber boot fit on it. Cost me all of about $7. He said it was a switch commonly used on bathroom vanity lights. The new switch had wires about 6" long so I spliced them onto the original harness and tied them up with a zip tie. Good as new!
