Question about 1985 Honda VT 500 C
Hi, I need to run new wiring from the flasher unit to the back indicators as there is a fault with the existing wiring. My problem is that I do not know which wires correspond to which indicator as there are only 3 wires coming out of the flasher unit so I assume this feeds back and front and left and right but which one does which?
Any help would be appreciated.
This motorcycle is a Honda VT500 EF 1985
The flasher unit is made to flash 12 volts on and off only. The turn signal switch is what is used to direct that flashing 12 volts to the proper signals.
The flasher unit:
First wire is a ground. Middle wire is the send to the turn signal switch. The last wire is 12v positive (with key on). When you flip the switch to the left, it makes a connection between the left turn signals and the middle wire of the flasher unit. The flasher unit then "sees' a load and starts flashing 12v on and off at the middle wire. When you flip the switch right, it makes the connection between the right signals and the middle wire of the flasher unit. Again, the flasher unit "sees" a load and starts flashing.
