Wiring help ‘08 GL 1800 w/ 2015 Motor Trike Razor kit

Post by davemarilyn »



Had my baby apart for repaint. I have 2 wiring issues as it goes back together (didn’t take enough pictures during tear down).

1. In the passenger left arm rest there is a plunger switch that is activated when the trunk lid is closed. There are 2 wires on the switch but there are 4 wires on the harness coming into the enclosure (in addition to the speaker connections). Which ones hook up to the switch?

2. I have an open connector under the seat and I’m not sure it is unused or if I’m just overlooking the other end. It’s the small white one in the pic laying on the blue and green connectors. Appreciate any help!

1. The 2-wire switch feeds power to either a vanity mirror or trunk light. The other end that plugs into it is up under the inner trunk lid liner. I believe it's a 2-pin red connector.

2. The Service Manual says it's a "2-pin NAT dummy connector." Sorry, I'm not able to find out what "NAT" stands for.

That makes sense on the light. I couldn't find that connector at all in the service manual. Appreciate the assist. Thanks much!
