PostSubject: socket under seat in side compartment   socket under seat in side compartment I_icon_minitimeMon Jun 25, 2018 4:36 am

Confused of Croydon here....
Happened to open the little access flap on the left side of Swing, under the seat which allows access to the rear indicator bulb, I assume, and found a small white male socket with three wires coming to it. It is fed from the loom. A friend has confirmed that he has the same thing on his, but his has got a red cover on the plug, mine seems to have lost that.
I have tested with a meter and two of the wires produce 12 volts with the ignition on.

Can anyone tell me please what the socket is for? I am thinking I would like to add an accessory socket for phone charging etc, with the socket mounted on the wall facing into the main underseat storage.

Bike is European spec and new to me.

I can't seem to add pictures directly to this thread and site instructions say I can only link to photos stored elsewhere, but I have no idea how to do such things. Shocked

Any help would be appreciated.

No idea bud.  I'll check the wiring diagram, what colour are the wires ?

The wires are as follows:
Green
Red / blue
Brown / white.

False info from my pal about the red plastic cover over his, that is something else dangling in the same area, probably a diode or something. This is a specific white male flatish socket that is similar to the Goldwing 12 volt socket under the front left glove pocket that is specifically for the plug and play 12 volt socket.

I wish I could show the pictures I have taken of it. This is something that is just straight into the loom, not something that a previous owner has added.

If the color codes are; G, Br, O/W, and Bl/W it is a test plug for the ECM. HTH

I don't know what it's for but wire is a very small size.
Best to add accessory items wired directly to battery with a fuse.

Thanks for that. Sounds right, those could be the colours, it might have been my old eyes and poor light, but anyway, as Mech 1 twa said, they are pretty thin gauge wires, so hardly sufficient for powering a 12 volt accessory socket.
I am probably going to add a small secondary fuse board, wired to the battery, to ensure safe additions of accessories.

Old post, i know. But i came across it. It's the plug to reset the abs module. Had to deal with it these last few days

Is that the wire that connects the compartment light? Some people take the bulb out, some just unplug the lights

If you mean the 3 wire plug featured in the photo then NO, it is the reset for the abs module. And the compartment light and switch only has 2 wires, and a known battery killer when the switch sticks on after you close the seat.

Just a quick re-cap on how the ABS socket is used for those without a service manual.

If the ABS light stays on when riding :........

If the ABS indicator does not go out, perform the following:
1. Turn the ignition switch "OFF':
Remove the left side body cover (page 2-6).(optional as the socket should be hanging in the R/H rear bulb changing compartment)
Short the ABS service check 3P (Natural) connector terminals with a jumper wire.

TERMINALS: Brown/White - Green

2. Do not squeeze the brake lever.
Turn the ignition switch "ON':
Read and record the how many times indicator
blinks, and determine the cause of the problem
(page 17-6).(service manual)
3. Turn the ignition switch "OFF':
Remove a jumper wire from the ABS service check
3P (Natural) connector.

To re-set ABS.

1. Turn the ignition switch "OFF':
Remove the left side body cover (page 2-6).
Short the ABS service check 3P (Natural) connector terminals with a jumper wire.

TERMINALS: Brown/White - Green

2. Squeeze the brake lever and turn the ignition
switch "ON':
3. Release the brake lever when the ABS indicator
goes out.
4. Squeeze the brake lever when the ABS indicator
lights.
5. Release the brake lever when the ABS indicator
goes out
6. Check the ABS indicator blinks 2 times.
If the ABS indicator does not blink 2 times, the
self-diagnostic memory has not been erased.
Repeat the memory reset procedure from step
one.
7. Turn the ignition switch "OFF':
Remove a jumper wire from the ABS service check
3P (Natural) connector.

Happy riding people.
