1500 light problem

Postby auditray2007 » Thu Oct 28, 2010 3:15 pm



Hi Guys,

Fitted leds throughout my 1989 including the driving / cornering lights and have a problem now. Everything works well with the exception of the front marker/flasher lamps. The marker light's do not go off when the flasher lamp is operating.



I also have the Fuel and Cruise On /Set indicator lights on brightly even with the Cruise switch in the off position. The Cruise works perfectly. I have removed all the lights with the exception of the two front marker/flasher lamps but the problem is still present. All ground's are good.

Any ideas?

If Your referring to the lower cornering lamps they are suppost to be lit when the turn signal is activated, Not both just the side thats signaling. You did not mention where You tied into the power source? As for Your cruise and fuel lamps go It,s being backfed with power from somewhere, Without more info. I cannot even guess. Try disconnecting Your cornering lights one at a time see if there,s any difference. Good luck To Ya.

I am referring to the two Signalling / Yellow Marker lamps up top beside the position lamps. They are wired into the harness as standard on this bike at least. Marker lights are on all the time and are supposed to go "off" when left or right signalling light is engaged.

I only mentioned the driving lamps which are wired to stay on all the time to give a full picture of what I did to the lights on the bike. They are not the issue. As I said, everything works without fail. Just these Signalling / Yellow Marker lamps and the dash indicator lights are not as they should be.

Is there anything that can be done about this back fed problem?
