connectors behind front left turn signal, constant 12V?

Postby cbach1981 » Sat Sep 25, 2010 10:53 am



Anyone know if the connectors behind the front left turn signal in the fairing on an 83 interstate have a constant 12v source? my multimeter is lent out at the moment and trying to figure out if i can get rid of the PO's wire that supplies constant 12v to the radio. currently its a wire run from radio, out and along the frame to an inline fuse holder then on to battery POS terminal. would like to ditch that long wire if I can. Thanks


    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape!

There is a wire back there that has constant +12V - it's the one that originally powered the radio's memory. I believe it is red (if I remember correctly) and should have an inline fuse on it.

ok. I have a red along with some others. there are three inline fuses in there. so I might just need to wait till my meter finds it's way home. then I can be sure of my connections
