Just got a 1982 blizzard 9500 plus. The headlight is not working while motor is running, but when I turn ignition key off the light turns on during 3 second rundown. What's wrong?

Could be a faulty ignition switch but sounds like you may have a bad voltage regulator. Had one on my sled that every light worked accept headlight. I swore it was a wiring harness problem. Long story short the regulator couldn't handle the juice of the bulb due to internal issues. New one solved it. Using a voltage meter you can hook onto the light plug and test your voltage as you shut it off. Numbers will be all over the place if it is bad.
