Some may of read my earlier post about loose wires under my recently bought '03 LT Custom. I had three connectors that were loose, while digging around trying to figure why the Midland CB doesn't work. I dicovered a 4th wire!!! After doing a the usual careful Cajun/Redneck examination (IE, touch them to the battery and flip switches and see what happens
). I was able to get the fog lamps on the front tire to work, Woot!.
Now I got these last two wires left. The have a BMW sticker with part numbers on it, and the both appear to got into a Bosch Relay (Might be a relay.) One has a red band near the end and the other has a orange band. When you touch one ( believe the red one) of them to the positive terminal, it shorts out the bike. Well as much as I was listening to the radio with the key in the accesory posistion. I touched the post with the wire, sparks flew, radio cut out and I went inside for another beer.
As these two appear to be factory installed, I was wondering if other LT owners have a clue as to what they are for, and where they go. IE, if ya got a '03 look under you seat seat and tell me,
As for while the Midland CB doesn't work, I don't have a clue. I removed from the base and brought it inside and wired it 12v power source. It came on fine. I guess I'll need to radio shack and get a cheap volt meter to trace the loss of power.
