Brake light wiring on 2002 Suzuki volousia

I'm trying to install a "Back-Off" brake module and am not sure which wire to splice it into.

It says the wire between the light and switch but I'm not sure which it is.

If you're not sure, you'd best leave this modification to someone who can perform this installation for you and provide you with a warranty for their labor.

Also... you may want to check with local law enforcement that your lighting equipment modification is actually legal for your juristiction before you ride with it installed.

Cheers, Jay

How do I remove alarm brain box from wiring on a

"I bypassed the immobilizer circuit only on my alarm module (which is really tedious). Bypassing the whole
module is possible (and little easier), but you will lose the use of the remotes and the ability to arm the alarm.
The alarm module in my '97 900 SETC is located under the carpet, below the driver's power seat switches (a
pain to get at).
If you want to bypass the module completely:
1. Disconnect the battery (make sure you know the radio code-if needed)
2. Unplug the connector from alarm module and remove module from car
3. Install a wire jumper between pin 8 and pin 20 in the connector
4. Install a wire jumper between pin 9 and pin 21 in the connector
5. Install a wire jumper between pin 10 and pin 22 in the connector
6. Wrap securely with electrical tape
If you want to bypass the immobilizer circuit only:
1. Disconnect the battery (make sure you know the radio code-if needed)
2. Unplug the connector from the alarm module
3. Cut the following wires from the back of the connector and splice together as follows (Don't cut the wires too
close to the connector, because someday down the road you may want install a new module, so you'll have to
reverse this process):
4. Cut the wires to pin 8 and pin 20 and splice together w/ wire nut
5. Cut the wires to pin 9 and pin 21 and splice together w/ wire nut
6. Cut the wires to pin 10 and pin 22 and splice together w/ wire nut
7. Secure all with electrical tape
8. Reconnect the connector to the module
Not knowing the details of your problem, please be aware that this may, or may not, solve it. Good luck and let
me know how you make out."

How to change the front brake switch on my 2002 Fatboy...

You'll have to cut the old wires, and solder the new wires.
Cut the wires from both the old and new switches to different lengths, so the when you splice them together, the enlarged area at the splice will be staggered from each other, so the "bulge" created will be smaller inside the wiring harness cover.

Missing license plate wiring and complete assembly. How do I splice in to the trailer or tail lamp wiring? Off the "brown wire"? Is it really that easy?

These are the diagrams basically from the headlamp switch going back to the license plate lamps. The main splice after the headlamp switch going back is in the main harness near the warning chime module. If you need a larger picture or the entire outside lighting wiring, feel free to email me at with all your vehicle information. Yes it is that simple by just splicing into the main rear light wiring at the brown wire. Hope this is what you were looking for.....

Is a special "powered" module

I would use a Curt 56024 T-Connector Kit. This lets you connect the wiring kit without needing to splice any wires.

All my brake lights went out; I checked the fuse, and replaced the brake light switch, turned the car off and back on and the brake lights are still off. Any Suggestions? I have a 2000 Honda Odyssey.

Check to see if theres voltage at the switch with a volt meter. if there is then the issue may be an electrical connection either at the computer module or the grounding at the lights. If there is a towing package installed check the wiring harness at the splice.
Also check the brake light relay usually located in the main fuse block.
I also found this other solution online:
-Begin quote- Ok... SO here is the answer smile.gif After asking my two year old daughter to pray that "daddy can fix the car" (she had to learn sometime that praying for the family dog is great but God can do bigger things).

The panel which contains the tire jack hid the secret.

There is a small black box that has one set of wires going to it. For some reason that only the car gods know, the wire harness that terminates in the box was disconnected.

I am very thankful I didn't take this one to the dealership becuase that is likely one of the last places they would have thought of looking since it is furthest from the switch (brake pedal) that activates the lights. And besides... They bill by the hour smile.gif

Moral of the story:
Make sure the connections are made.

One good gem out of all this is I found the following site for ordering OEM parts online.

Thanks for the people who thought of helping me.

Wireing new mirrors with LED lights to the exsting signals.

If the wires from the mirrors aren't long enough to reach the signal lights, extend the wires with similar guage wires long enought to reach the signal light wires. Make sure to make a good connection when lengthening by useing the same kind of connections that are used to connect your singnal light wires so that you can take your mirros off and disconnect them from right behind where you mount your mirros instead of haveing to disconnect them from way down by your signal lights wires. You can splice into the wires "positive and negitive" to where your signal lights plug into. DO NOT splice into the wires that come off when you remove your singnal lights. That way you dont have to splice and resplice when you have to replace signal light housings. Not that hard really.
