Mystery electrical plug connection

Post by Stantheman55 » Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:46 pm



Hey Guys
I just got finished adding an auxiliary fused power line to my bike that I found here on the Doc. site. It was at times a headache but now that it is in I am feeling good that I do not have to try to splice into the original wiring to add an accessory. I also cleaned up a previous owners sloppy wiring job for trunk lights.
Here's my question
On my 2000 1500 SE with the seat removed there is a black female plug housing (another plug slides into it) two wires green and yellow.
It is factory installed sits over the top of the compressor next to the frame left side under the rear passenger seat. This is not the compressor plug I would appreciate all help in identifying this plug as I thought I had marked all plugs as I took them apart and some how missed this one. I (and I may be wrong in this assumption) I don't think its a connection for a light because there is not a matching connection on the other side, of course I could be wrong.

Would also like to say how invaluable I find the collective help and wisdom on this site, thanks to all who have helped me with many of my past and sure to be future questions.
Stan the man.

I think you are talking about the connector for High Mount Accessory Light on the trunk. Not for speakers.

Hi Erdeniz
Thank you for your reply to my question, it indeed turned out to be the left speaker connection. Ride safe.

Glad to hear that.
But the original wire colors should be Gry/Wht and Blu/Yel for the left rear speaker, and the connector should be white according to the service manual.


And green and yellow wires should be going to the high acc.light on the trunk through some black connectors.
