    Do you have the v7 Racer? Did you have issues with the lights being covered up by the rear cowl? I have the MAS Enginering fender eliminator and it does not work with the Racer as advertised. Thanks

These are infamous for side stand switches that allow the bike to shut off and more importantly not start when side stand is down. Even worse is that it can activate even with side stand up. So either pull it off and short it out or clean up the connections.

SOURCE: new battery fitted but no

Hello, i haven't worked on but a few Guzzi's, but it sounds like you may have a ground issue. I would check for voltage at the ignition switch, relays & fuses. If no voltage there, check the main battery to frame ground. Then start with a continuity test from the battery to circuit box & continue until you find where the break is.... Some of these bikes, like the sport model, have 2 batteries, so if yours does, make sure that both are good....I hope this helps some.

I have a four part problem that started by some one wiring my trailer pig tale wrong it was the only thing done minutes before the first problem started #1 gear stick wont come out of park un less you...

It is all related and the connections should be undone immediately. I am worried about you having an electric signal going into your gas tank which the fuel gauge gets its readings from. The signals are suppose to work on grounding and low resistence, not strong voltage.

Your Ignition switch needs a signal from a switch on the brake pedal lever which tells the truck that your foot is on the brake. There is also a switch under the dash which can be bumped or broken by hitting it with your feet. The loss of signal is suppose to keep the Vehicle in Park.

Emergency flashers work through the MFS multifunction switch on the turnshift handle. Separate flashers create the pulse to flash the lights. Improper wiring could burn out the flasher units.

On Later Ford products, the plastic cover on the Light hookup had the wiring terminals all identified. If you used an aftermarket kit, the color codes should have been assembled to match the factory colors. There is no guarantee the aftermarket units did do that.

Sometimes working on wiring is difficult if the mechanic is colorblind. Some of the better kits will have a wire connector to install in a plug under the dash between the brake pedal and ashtray. Then this harness runs as 1 piece all the way to the rear bumper. The short wire kits tap into the rear light sockets.

Some of the Electronic light flashers can sense how many bulbs are in the circuit to maintain a steady flashing rate with or without a trailer hooked up. Thats about as much as I can help you with.

I need a color to color diagram for a 92 chevy 1500 for wiring in a trailer.

When installing the kit, follow the manufacturer's instructions. The color coding of the wires is usually standard throughout the industry. One point to note: some domestic vehicles, and most imported vehicles, have separate turn signals. On most domestic vehicles, the brake lights and rear turn signals operate with the same bulb. For those vehicles without separate turn signals, you can purchase an isolation unit so that the brake lights won't blink whenever the turn signals are operated.

When i hook my trailer to my 2002 ford superduty i have no running lights on trailer.brake and signal lights work fine.WHY?

Hello, if you only have taillights on the trailer and no side markers, check your bulbs first. The bright side is used for the Brakes and turn signals and the normal filament is used for the running lights.

If you use a test light you can find the pin on the connector which runs the Running lights. Sometimes the wiring harness will pick up the running lights off of the taillight in the bed of the truck. You would look for a wire going up into the taillight housing from the Trailer plug.

If you are the original owner of the truck there was a small package of Relays and wire ends that came in a plastic bag. It could be stored with the jack. This package had wire color information and instructions for Electric brakes. It also color-coded the Trailer plug-in socket as they use the extra pin holes for the Electric brakes. All the wires are discussed.

If an aftermarket unit was wired in the running light, the wires could be any color. The industry tried to put in a standard, but instructions still say if you don't have one color, its another. That is still vague.

Im looking for color of a brake wire

Hello heinz2127: My name is Roger and i will help you. The rear brake wires are green and yellow. They also are the turn signal wires. The brake lights work through the turn signal switch.The turn signal switch has logistics for determining which side is blinking so as to make the opposite side to show park brake light.Check the fuse box for a blown fuse. Look at the fuse box under the hood. Also try this. Turn on the four way flashers. Step on the brake pedal . The lights should stop flashing If not I would replace the turn signal switch.

Does anybody know how to wire a towbar wiring unit to a ford escort 1999?

Wiring the vehicle for towing is fairly easy. There are a number of good wiring kits available and these should be used, rather than trying to design your own.

All trailers will need brake lights and turn signals as well as tail lights and side marker lights. Most areas require extra marker lights for overwide trailers. Also, most areas have recently required back-up lights for trailers, and most trailer manufacturers have been building trailers with back-up lights for several years.

Additionally, some Class I, most Class II and just about all Class III and IV trailers will have electric brakes. Add to this number an accessories wire, to operate trailer internal equipment or to charge the trailer's battery, and you can have as many as seven wires in the harness.

Determine the equipment on your trailer and buy the wiring kit necessary. The kit will contain all the wires needed, plus a plug adapter set which includes the female plug, mounted on the bumper or hitch, and the male plug, wired into, or plugged into the trailer harness.

When installing the kit, follow the manufacturer's instructions. The color coding of the wires is usually standard throughout the industry. One point to note: some domestic vehicles, and most imported vehicles, have separate turn signals. On most domestic vehicles, the brake lights and rear turn signals operate with the same bulb. For those vehicles without separate turn signals, you can purchase an isolation unit so that the brake lights won't blink whenever the turn signals are operated.
One, final point, the best kits are those with a spring loaded cover on the vehicle mounted socket. This cover prevents dirt and moisture from corroding the terminals. Never let the vehicle socket hang loosely; always mount it securely to the bumper or hitch.

Hope help.

The standard color codes used by most American car manufacturers in the older days were as follows: green - right turn signal, yellow - left turn signal, brown - tail lights. Of course, brake uses yellow and green. I'm not positive if it's the same on that particular car, but that is the standard.

I need to hook up a boat trailor Whats the color code for a 1995

I suspect that the 4 wire harness includes a ground, so you may not be able to connect both brake lights and turn signals, which are separate lamps on the pickup. You may need to get an adapter.

In any case, the color codes on the pickup are:

Tail lights -- pink/blue
Brake Lights -- green/yellow
Left turn signal -- gray/blue
Right turn signal -- gray/red
Ground -- black

My left brake light is not working. i checked the bulb and it was bad so then i changed the bulb but still no light. i then tore apart the panels in the rear of the truck to find no power to the wiring at...

First, one wire cannot control the turn signal and brake light, as the turn signal and brake light have to work independently of each other so I would verify the color code for the brake light wire and then check it.
