Question about GPS

1 Answer

I have to connect 2 wires (red and black) to the wiring of my motorcycle to use the motorcycle power to feed my zumo 500 sat nav. I don't have any wiring diagrams for my bike. Can anyone point me in the right direction? My local garage wants loads of cash to connect the 2 wires!

1. Most public librarys carry a series of books by "Chilton" or "Hayes" which are basically illustrated guides to rebuilding every make and model of non-commercial vehicle.

2. The black can most likely be connected to the negative terminal of the battery.

3. The red is typically connected to the "accessory" position of the ignition switch. Often, you can simply crimp a connector on the red wire, and insert it into one of the spare fuse locations in the fuse panel.

I am replacing a two way switch with a two way Trimatron dimmer 6681 The dimmer has 1 black wire hot, 2 red wires and a ground (green) The box has 2 black, 1 red and 2 white What do you connect...


The best thing you can do in that situation is match the wire colors of the dimmer to the colors of the screw terminals on the switch you removed. Unfortunately, its too late for that - so here's my best guess: One of the black wires in the box will be coming from the same romex cable as the red wire. Take THAT black box wire and connect it to one of the red wires on the dimmer. Take the red box wire and connect it to the remaining red wire on the dimmer. Connect the black dimmer wire to the remaining black wire in the box. The two white connectors in the box get tied together - they don't get tied to the dimmer. And the ground (green) wire on the dimmer just connects to the bare ground connection in the box itself - or to the metal backbox - or cut it off and don't use it.

OK .. the thick black and white are the power for the fan , are there also white wires on the lamp sockets ..??
The thick black wire should connect to the black wire on the switch.
The small black wires connect to the red and blue wire on the switch .. two small black wires each .. that should give you a position for 2 lights , and 4 lights, on the step switch .. but there should be white wires from the lamp sockets connected to the thick white from the fan .

please respond .

How to wire a zumo 550 sat nav to a honda cb1300sa


I'd suggest you don't pay their bill! ****. You'll need to find the accessory supply and connect the red wire it to that. Goodness knows where they connected the black (negative wire) if they are that stupid. Don't trust their work - I home they did not work on your brakes.

Pioneer Kp-500 wiring red black gray green Red hot black common for speakers green 1 channel gray 2 channel Will play using radio chasis grounded should the black be grounded to the vehicle?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments on the KP-500.

The black wire serves as common/return for the green/gray speaker wires. Yes, the black wire should also be grounded to the vehicle as it is the power ground and is tied to the chassis/body of the stereo.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Black or ground to chasis, Red to battery if you want it to have power all the time.
To the fuse box to a switched line if you want it to turn off with the bike.
Be sure to have a fuse in line with the power wire to prevent damage to the GPS umit or a fire on the bike.

Wiring To an 08 Ultra Classic


If you are mounting the unit to the bars or fairing, I would recommend using a power lead which is available in the fairing, rather than the AUX accessory switch.  The AUX switch sends power to a connector under the seat, in front of the battery.  You would need to run new wires up under the fuel tank, along the neck and into the fairing to connector your Zumo to the AUX.  Instead, there is a 12+ V switched ignition power lead which is not used on U.S. touring bikes and would be perfect for connecting your Zumo.  Pull the fairing off the bike (7 screws, TORX T-27) and look at the headlight harness, which is 3 wires, black, white, yellow.  Attached to this harness will be 2 wires, a black and an orange w/ white stripe.  The orange will have a red silicone cap over it to prevent it from shorting out in the fairing.  Cut the zip-ties which connect these 2 wires to the headlight harness and then hook it up to your Zumo, black is negative, Orange positive.
