What did I do wrong? Has anyone else installed passing lamps and then they did not work? I have a 2002 1200 Custom Sportster. I am thinking that maybe the splicing of the headlamp wire is not good enough? I hate to have to take the gas tank back off, this is a beech. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Get 12V test light and start checking. If you spliced into the yellow wire which is low beam, when you turn on the ignition, does the headlight low beam work?? If it does there is no reason the spots shouldn't work assuming they are grounded.

Oh, by the way, the high/low headlight switch is not set to high, is it??

Ok. Got them to work. My thought on the splicing was correct. Now I just need to clean up the finger prints.

Thanks.
