Hi, I'm using a CustomLED board that is spliced into the stock harness. After the track day yesterday, I have no running lights, brake lights, or turn signals on the custom led board. Turn signals still works on the front and on the rear (rizomas). If I insert a standard bulb into the stock plug, I get a working brake light but no running lights.
I've checked fuses (they looked ok) and the wiring. I Can't find any telltale signs of potential issues. Anyone have any ideas? I'm stumped. I figure its related to the fact that the stock bulb doesn't have a running light. I am running the customled flasher relay as well.
As it is, the bike will have to sit in the garage for now while I head back down to Monmouth with the jeep. I'll have to try to troubleshoot it after Wednesday night when I get back.
How did you attach the CLED board to the stock wires? turn the bike off. where ever you made a splice, crimp, soldered connection, grab a multimeter then attach one test lead to the spice, the other to a good source to ground. If you have no direct shorts, then do the following
grab an alligator lead and attach one end right to the running light + spice (or unsplice them if you do not have a multimeter) then the other side goes to the battery. See if it lights up.
if that does not work, also try putting another alligator lead on the ground splice (no not un-splice) to a good/different source to ground
Welp, figured out what the problem was: blue wire broke at the soldered connection to the circuit board. Now I just gotta figure out how to remove the circuit board from the light housing since its super glued into place (as instructed). Any ideas? I can't get access to the wire in order to strip it and resolder it to the circuit board as it is due to my fat fingers and small space.
I thought they told you to use hot glue? Super glue will keep you busy for a while... Try an exacto knife and keep cutting the glue with the tip of the blade, you'll get it eventually. Just be careful, don't cut any traces on the pcb...
You could try a wood burner or soldering iron around the super glued spots, just use a light touch. Super glue actually melts the plastic components together a bit so the pinpoint heating tip "should " let you soften it up enough to get it out. If not use an exacto knife after softening it up to part it. This way it'll be a clean breakaway so you can get it back in place afterwards
