BackOff Wig Wag Modulator

Post by Bluedude54 »

I'm installing a Back Off Wig Wag brake modulator on my 2010 GL1800 Audio Comfort. I want to install it under the truck. I cannot locate the brake light wire for the upper left brake light. I know it's green with red stripe. Has anyone else done this? If so, where did you find the brake wire. I have opened the wiring harness with no luck.

Yes, I did it on a 2007 3 years ago. I put it under the seat and tapped in to the wiring harness in front of the fuse/relay box under the seat. Just put the seat on last weekend or I would get some pics. Easy to find there tho....

I bought the Wig Wag about a year ago, and I also purchased pigtail wiring and the correct wire spades and lugs to be able to remove the OEM wires and insert the Wig Wag's wires into the OEM harness, so nothing would have to be cut and it could be enabled/disabled with a switch.

This wiring job is a bit complicated and has literally the worst instructions of any job out there. Akin to "find the striped wire". When you get the back wheel cover off and see the black-grime-covered harnesses criss-crossing left and right, and when you realize how hard it is to get into the light fixtures in the back, you might opt to cut into your harness and/or use one of those evil vampire taps instead. I just gave up because ain't nobody got time for that.

Wig Wag, new in box, for sale. LOL.
