Strange Electrical Problem 2005 K1200LT
Put on new brakes, refilled both ABS chambers, replaced 6 position aux fuse block with a 12 position (both Blue Sea, equivalent other than number of terminals), and tapped into the red/yellow wire at position 9 of the alarm unit to add an additional LED indicator.
Now, the brake lamps work fine... the first time. They stay on, with the exception of the center tail lamp, which I modded years ago to work as an extra brake lamp as well as running lamp.
My EHCS will not work once I have used the brakes. If I have not yet engaged the brakes, the EHCS works fine.
If I shut the bike down and restart, the pattern repeats and the brake lamps work, the EHCS works... until after the first engagement of the brakes.
If I tap the starter and engage the load-shed relay, the bike also "resets" as if I had turned it off and restarted it.
I think I can safely rule out the brake switches as either one causes the center brake lamp to illuminate, and it goes off when the lever/pedal is released.
I think I can rule out the auxiliary LED as it functions normally, working in synch with the indicator on the instrument panel.
HELP!!! (please... pretty please)
