Whats Up! Apparently when the dealership acquired the police bike I currently own, done something to the wiring harness when they removed all the police equipment. I recently had a rear brake light issue, and have resolved that, but in the middle of doing that, I undone what they done to the harness under the seat, and now the bike wont start. Here is some pictures of what I'm dealing with.This under the seat, and the connected it to the harness that leads to the tail light. Any ideas or suggestions on this, thanks.

Picture is too out focus and too close up to tell what you are working on. Do you have the manual? Did you get a warranty from the dealer? Do you have spark? Fuel? Anything else not working? Fuses ok? Check fuses with a test light or meter, not visually. Does the fuel pump run when you turn the switch on? Stop run switch set to run?

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like something may have got hot. I'd probably start with the most basic and check the fuses. After that, if those wires are actually melted, I'd repair that by soldering in some new wire with proper insulation. I say, if that's the problem, as it is hard to tell from here.

Pretty much what Norm said.

Sorry about the blurry picture. The blue wire is in the same little harness that has the two black wires and a green with red stripe wire, which was where they had put a trailer connector on. And on the bigger harness, which feeds the tail light, is a red with a white stripe, had a trailer connector on it. And when you turn the key on with the run button on, there is no sound of the fuel pump.

I think while wiring in the trailer harness, you tripped the security system,,, since the security system is located in the turn signal module,,, and you spliced into the turn signals as well as brake and running lights...
When the security system is tripped, the fuel pump is disabled,, the engine cranks but won't fire, or it fires and runs for a second or two..


Undo what you did, then attempt to reset the security system, per the manual,, if thst doesn't work you may be buying a new TSSM modilule..
What year is the bike?? You should hope it is a pre canbus model..

What I meant was they used those blue trailer wire connectors, the one you wrap around the wire that you want to attach to then crimp them. Thats what they used to tie in one of those wires in the photo, to the red/white wire on the tail light harness. I reconnected the green/red wire back together and the blue wire that was in two, and still nothing when you turn the run switch on.

If a dealer repaired your wiring using those blue connections you described, never use them again! That is backyard shade tree hack s&#$! You NEVER use those as permanent connectors, especially where they can get wet!
I don't have a manual for that year, so the colors are no help, but you need to check for power at the fuses and the run relay. Is the bike carb or EFI?
