I have installed the rear lights with no problems. when I installed the front led lights which is a 2 wire system when I turn the signal switch on all 4 lights flash weather I turn the switch for left or right turn. I do not have a wiring diagram to properly trace the wires. Also the indicator light will not light up. I have used the third wire for a seperate running light which I wired into the new mirros which work fine. where did I go wrong in installing the wires?
I had the same problem with my 1997 marauder the only way i have found to make them work is to hook up the LED signal lights into the stock signal lights i know it sounds crazy but what i have figured out is that it uses the stock bulbs like a fuse. all you have to do is take the headlight out just like you did when you wired in the LED lights and wire in your stock bulbs along with the LED lights once you have done this put the stock bulbs in the headlight assembly and put the headlight back in this should fix your problem at least it worked for me let me know if it works for you as well good luck

one_jimmy_james. I'll try and make it as simple as possible. From your description it looks like you want to have a master switch that feeds two separate switches to control two sets of LED's. I also understand that the switches have 3 spade ends. So lets get to the switches first. Thee switches are either lighted switches or are a two way switch. You have to determine that first. If the switch handle is clear or a transparent color they are probably lighted. Else they are probably a two way switch. Either way they will work. Possibly you can find that info on the packaging. Will need that info from you before being able to give you exact directions. Here is what I can give you right now. First we'll say positive from the battery is +, negative is -. take a tap off the + battery terminal and attach that to an inline fuse. The other side of the fuse will feed the master switch. You may not need a master switch to conserve space since the turning off each control switch will do the same thing. From the master switch, feed each of the control switches (so 2 wires out of the master switch). Other side of the control switches go to the LED's. LED stands for light emitting diode. So there is a polarity issue that you have to consider. + to +. You might want to test connections before finalizing installation. The other terminal from the LED's goes to ground (-).
Check the wiring, you might have the tail lights wired wrong or if you have led taillights installed they could be the culprit - you might have to install a new flasher designed to work with LED lights.
Not having the front turn lamps installed and connected is the problem. This system is very sensitive to the total load that is on the unit when activated. Even on the older systems with the standard "flasher", if one bulb was out, that side would light up but not flash. The system on your bike is a much more complicated system as it uses a Turn Signal Cancelling Unit. Contact me directly and I'll send you a trouble shooting guide for the system. email@example.com I'll send it in jpg format.
Honda always grounds the turn signals separately (usually a green wire)not directly to the frame.Not hooking up the running light should not effect anything except forward visibility to other motorists. If you have a two prong flasher relay, go get a cheap flasher relay ($5-$10) and replace it. The only problem I have ever heard of when switching to LED turn signals is a flicker / fast flash instead of a normal slow flash. This is remedied by adding diodes to the wires.
You are missing you rear turn signals. Yes there should be a flasher but it requires all lights to be working before it will flash. It needs the original loads on the system. If led sights are installed they should be accompanied by loads that fool the flasher into thinking that the original bulbs are still there.
