Blinker/Brake light (I know, the pinned post)
« on: Oct 11, 2017, 03:23:23 »
I bought a pair of dual filament brake lights/turn signals as well as a 5 wire curt trailer adapter. I read the pinned post multiple times, hooked it up as explained, and could not get either of the lights to actually blink. This is the first time blinkers or a brake light have been hooked up to this bike, so maybe there is a deeper issue? For the record I replaced the flasher relay, but is it possible I could have ruined it by mixing up the wires connecting the adapter? Either way before I drive myself crazy, how exactly would this combo be laid out, maybe I'm simply mixing wires up. For the record it is a cb550. To my knowledge, on the bike orange is left signal, blue is right signal, brown is running light, green/yellow is brake light, and green is common ground.  I have these going to their respective places on the adapter, so it is the out side that I am unsure of. On the light there's black, black/white, and red.

It's been a couple of years since I tinkered with one of these, but there's some obscure setup to use if you have dual filament bulbs. Something about grounding the brake wire on the output side? Sorry, I can't remember the exact change, but it was something weird like that.

Which is the brake wire? Black/white?

The brake wire on the trailer module should be labeled. Can't remember the color. Sorry.
