Headlight & Tailight Not Working

Greetings to All,

I am looking for some help for an 01 ZX9 US Model. I cannot get my headlight or taillight to come on. Everything else such as turn signals, brake light etc. works. I have checked all the wiring and fuses and all seems to be ok. I have replaced the bulbs with new, still no luck. The taillight will come on when I press the brake, but will not come on when the ignition is turned to on, nor will the headlight. Any insight is appreciated.

OK the problem is either in the ignition switch, unlikely or the plug that connects to it. This plug is located under the fuel tank and forward of the air-box (I fairly sure).
:arrow: Power going into the plug is the Red and blue wire, which turns into a blue wire the other side of the plug, it then goes into the ignition unit and back out on the red wire when the ignition is switched on. Check the plug pins for corrosion.
:idea: Do they come on when you select park ? if yes, then its the red blue wires, if not then its the red wires. :)

Thank you for your help, will try and post reply. Neither the headlight or the tailight will come one while running or with just the ignition turned on. The only time the tailight will light up is when the brake is pushed, then goes off when brake is released. The headlight will not come on at all.
