Looking for a little help, have a 2005LT putting auxiliary lites under tip over wings and would like to use a autoswitch.Problem is I'm not sure where to hook up the trigger wire for the switch. I understand that the signal cancel switch is to be used but do you have to splice into the harness in the handel bar or is there a better location and what would the wire colour code be.Checking through the fourm I found mention of a brown wire white trace in large electric box?

Re: Autoswitch

I just bought a 2008 RT equiped with the Autoswitch tied into the turn signal, problem is they don't come on automatically when I start the bike and I don't always remember to turn them on. Since my idea behind the extra lights is "to be seen by others" I was thinking about removing them from the Autoswitch and wiring directly into the low beams so they are always on and turn off when the ignition is off.

Re: Autoswitch

I used an autoswitch on my 05 which I installed when it was new. I did splice the trigger wire to the wire from the signal light cancel switch. It worked well.
