Question about 1985 Honda VT 500 C Shadow
I have a 1985 vt 500c that was converted into a trike. i just built a rack that connects to the bumper so that i could put my wheelchair on it and was trying to connect so lights that were on the rack. i was using a test light on the wiring harness for the normal tailights so that i could find the right wires for my auxilary lights. i found the correct wire and as soon as i did, the tailights quit working. i cant find a fuse anywhere. what would cause this problem?
Sounds like a loose connection, check that bulb is seated properly also. There is a relay for the reart light also its usually located on the battery side and attached to the plastic rear fender on a two wheel shadow follow the wires. Hope this helps. Oh check fuses also.
