Lighting problem for spotlights

I just bought spotlights for my bike. Wired them up and they don;t work. I thought at first that it was a ground problem but then I wired them to my headlight and the same problem so I rewired them to the normal spot. Tonight I'm going to run a test wire straight from the battery to the lights to make sure they work. My question is where can I get a wiring diagram for my bike it's a 2002 Kawaski Vulcun VN1500 Classic. Any help in this would be great.

Might be one in your owner's manual. Otherwise you could get a repair manual (Kawasaki, Clymer or Haynes).

Some people wire trailer plugs differently. If the plug is not wired differently than yours, make sure the tow ball is clean. No rust. That's where the trailer gets its ground from. Usually they will work if thats the case, but not right. I can't remember what the wire colors are right now. Go to etrailer and look up the diagram.

Fitted a set of anti-roo spotlights on my wife's car. However, trying to get a signal to the relay via an on/off switch in the dash from the high beam, the wires all seemed to be hot at some stage


Yes First, you may be able to get a FREE diagram from Autozone.com by registering your car. Foreign cars a little less likely.

When you look at a Relay there are several terminals. While conventional thought is that a Relay just interrupts a wire and breaks connection, the Reality is that both Positive and Negative wires tie in several Relays.

For instance, a Positive terminal in a Relay engages and it moves a pair of connections inside the Relay. But another Relay is lacking a Negative Pulse to engage its connection. The first Relay activates and then makes a connection supplying a Negative or grounding charge.

So the way you are wired, you are providing a ground to a KeyOFF terminal. Now it completes the circuit to light. When the KeyON Relay is activated, it toggles the Circuit and breaks the connection.

What you want to do is add an external light relay. Think of it like a starter Relay. A small tickler wire connects those massive battery cables to the starter. But only when the ignition is turned to start.

Use the tickler wire to activate the external Relay. Tie the tickler to the high beams so when the highs are on, the added Roo lights will work too.

Remember to fuse the hot side to the relay from the battery. That way you can lose the added lights but not the factory lights in the event a fuse breaks.

I hope my solution helps you.

Signal lights on R1 don't work...


Though I can't recall what the wire colors are for your bike's turn signals, here's how to figure it out: on the turn signals that you bought, first determine which wire is the ground by removing the light bulb and then checking to see which wire has continuity to the turn signal's metal bulb socket base.
Then find out which wire is the running light and which is the turn signal by hooking the ground wire and one of the other wires to a 12 volt power source. Which ever wire makes the brighter part of the bulb light up is the turn signal - the dimmer one is for the running light.
On the bike, match the turn signal wire to the bike's wiring that is 'hot' with the turn signal switch on. Plug the running light wire from the turn signal into the bike's wiring that is 'hot' whever the key is on. Hook the turn signal ground wire to the bike's ground wire(s).

3-light LED spotlight kit with remote solar panel #555-208


The Spotlight kit should still be under warranty for at least a year through the manufacturer. Check your manual and contact the manufacturer. The problem might be the seal which is allowing water in and therefore it needs to be replaced
