Autoswitch wiring - suggested location

Decided to wire in my Autoswitch yesterday. Pulled it off my 2003 that someone else had installed before I bought it...what a MESS! Had to find a better way. After studying the Clymers wiring diagram, I thought I would tap in near the flacher module instead of running up to the cancel button on the right bar. Already had the tank pulled so I looked in the wiring/relay box - knew I found my mounting location.

On my 2003 and 2005, the flasher cancel wire is a brown wire with a white stripe. Found it easily in the relay box. Stripped a little back and tested just to make sure. Put some double sided tape on the Autoswitch and fixed it to the left inside of the box. Ran power from the battery (fused) up the wiring bundle and put some friction tape around the whole bundle. Couldn't get any friction tape where the wires run under the box, but they are protected there. All other wiring is done inside the box. I did tap switched power from the green wire inside the box. Plenty of room for the light relay as well.

Hope this helps someone.

Interesting location. I actually have two autoswitches wired up into the cancel switch. Tap-and-hold for aux lighting and double-tap for garage door.

Triple duty for the cancel switch. Nice work!
