Wiring help needed

Post by rcgreg »



Hi guys,
I am attempting to add a CB Unit to my 1985 Ltd. So far I think I have all the parts however the transceiver harness I wound up with has two DIN plugs cut off. These are the ones that plug into the terminal component fig 7 in the cb radio installation manual. If I can get a schematic that can show me which wires get connected to which pin on the DIN connectors I can fix it. Can anyone help with this?

Thanks !!!

Yup, but, in my area of mountains, lakes, valleys and sweeping vistas - many areas are devoid of the cell tower !
Now I do have a meter set I can use - but not many fellow riders are also Hams :)

Just got finished putting the modules in my '85 LTD back into the small space that Honda gives you. The PO had the terminal component, power amp and antenna distributor placed in the fairing pocket but not in the right spots. The terminal component goes in first and to the front of the pocket. The power amp goes in next. To put the nuts on the securing bolts for these two items, may be easier to remove the upper fairing from the bike - have the fairing off my bike and it is easier. The antenna distributor module goes in the bottom of the fairing pocket just forward of the CB unit.

The only concern I have is the audio controller connectors for the travel computer. The travel computer connector that has a blue band is straight forward; however, the connector that has red banded is not. The only connection left after all is hooked up is one from the auto volume controller that has a blue band. I have the travel computer connector that has a red band hooked to the auto volume controller connector that has a blue band. Hopefully this works (don't listen to the radio when I'm riding anyway).

Cheers

Forgot to mention that there is one connector that does not have a home. It is the driver headset connector from the junction box that fits on the back of the CB unit (see figure 12 of the install manual). Don't know why. Haven't tried the CB unit as it is not high on the get to work list right now.
