Brake, Running, and Turn Signal Lamp Wiring Location Under Seat

Post by GBKid »



I recently installed a Show Chrome Accessories Installation Isolation Fuse Block on my 2000 Goldwing GL1500SE. Can anybody tell me where the wires for the Running, Brake, and Turn Signal lamps are located under the seat so I can tap into them for future add-on accessories? Thanks for any help.

Easiest way to get to them is to remove the trunk under-cover.

Cyclemax sells a nice Relay Isolator kit (meant for trailers) that takes a feed from the battery and runs it to a bank of relays controlled by stop / turn / running lights. I have one on my 1500.

You don't have to use it for a trailer, you could trigger all sorts of accessory lighting with it. The nice part is it is "Plug-and-Play" with connectors that go into the factory wiring harness. You disconnect the plugs for left / right stop/turn signal lights, plug those into sockets on the isolator kit, then plugs on the isolator kit go to the lights in the trunk.
