4 wire harness id help

Post by CWN »



All the years I've owned/wrenched on my 1500, I don't recall this harness ever being there until recent service work, bundled along side the h.bar wires coming from around the ign switch. Doesn't look oem to me.

What year and model do you have? If you don't have the radio fader knob/CB (lighted) switches on left bar then those wires are likely used for that (SE) option.

91A that had the oem fader prior to installing a firecreek led gauge panel. Still don't recall ever seeing it.

Thanks :<)

Yeah, looks like an aftermarket add on. I don't think Honda ever had connectors like that. I would trace the wires back to the other end and you may find the other end not connected either. The four colors look like trailer wiring.

The four wire colors coincide with the dealer installed CB option. :D
