I'm installing my passing lamps and have come across a problem with wiring. The instructions state that on O4 and newer bikes "connect the white wire with the connector to the B+ Connector on the harness.

Sorry for the big photos........can't figure how to make smaller

The attached photos will show the "white wire with the connector" to But what are they talking about B+ to he harness

B+ refers to battery voltage, it means a wire that has 12v all of the time and is not switched. If you can post the complete instructions it will help to put it all in context....Bill

Here is what the instructions say

:All 2003 and earlier models, cut the connector off the *********** lead and replace with ring terminal. Connect to the copper stud (Batt) terminal of the main circuit breaker.

:All 2004 and later models connecdt the white wire with the connector to the "B+" connector on the harness.

I can't figure out what harness they are talking about! I could always cut the connector off and use a ring terminal, but we know that the connector is a better way to go!

I see no harness on the bike that the connector will connect to, I must be missing something.

there's a matching connector floating around down there somewhere, as long as you're bike is an '04-up. I believe it is under the seat area.

I'll see if I can find a picture of it.

If this is a factory light set-up post the # on the instructions. It's near the top, I'm pretty sure that they all start with the letter "J". If no one else chimes in here I will get a copy tomorrow and see if we can figure it out.....Bill

They are HD's and the number you speak of is J03437....the instructions are easy to follow except for this B+ issue

I'll get a copy of that tomorrow. In the meantime I know that you are itching to do this. There is not that much harness on the bike so the connector can't hide forever. Look everywhere that you can in the hole under the seat. There are also 4 nuts that secure the plate that holds your fuses, remove them and look behind the plate, it could be hiding back there.....Bill

I was wondering if since the bike was an early 04, built sometime in Sept or Oct 03 if they might have not used the new wiring harness and there is no plug to be found.

The plug is behind the electrical panel near the bottom of the area behind there. It'll be taped up so it's hard to tell it's even a connector but all 04's have it. Follow down to the area where the main wire harness comes out of the backbone and then feel around back there. If that doesn't work try pulling the TSM/TSSM and check in that area before you have to pull the electrical panel off. It's there though, Harley even makes an accessory adaptor plug for it so you can hook up multiple accessories. Good luck!!!

Almost everything I have ever purchased from HD that came with instructions had instructions that not only had glaring omissions, were incomplete, or were just plain wrong, I usually throw them away after cussing for a while trying to follow them.
