late ex500d wiring diagram missing

Hi,

I was looking to try and fix my rear left turn signal daytime running light. However it appears the wiring diagram in the wiki is missing.

The one you're looking for? It's still there, just the thumbnails escaped to another dimension.

Re: late ex500d wiring diagram missing

First off, welcome and congrats on the "new" salvage you picked up.

Now, ummmm........ what DRL on the rear are you talking about?
These bike's rear turns don't light up unless the turn signal is activated. The rears use an 1156 single filament bulb. There are only two wires to each signal stalk on the rear. A positive and a ground.

Only the front turn signals are on to act as a bit of additional lighting. They use an 1157 dual filament bulb like the tail light/brake light.
They're on the lower setting in normal operation and flash brighter when the turn signal is activated.
The fronts have three wires, one positive for the "parking light", one positive for the actual brighter turn signal flash, and a ground.

If you have more than two wires for either of the rear turns, you have the wrong signal stalk back there

Re: late ex500d wiring diagram missing

it does have the 2 wire set up. i checked the constant to the rear right and it is 3.1 volts. the left is only 1.1 volts. i switched the light bulbs between the two sockets. same result. right is a daytime running light. left is not. When i picked up the bike it had the set up like this.(pictures Below)



Key is in the on position.



front of the bike

Re: late ex500d wiring diagram missing

You've got a problem somewhere then.
There shouldn't be voltage unless it is being sent by the turn signal relay when you physically slide the switch on the left handle bar, indicating you want to make a turn.
The rear are only supposed to be lit up when you activate the turn signal switch. Period.
The bulbs in the rear only have one filament, the base of the bulb only has one contact. In the very center of the base. It is called an 1156 bulb.

The front ones use a dual filament bulb called an 1157. That allows the fronts to operate as a "parking" or "marker" light when the key is on or the motorcycle is running.
Once you activate the turn signal with the switch, the second filament in the front bulb begins to light up in accordance to signal sent by the flasher relay.

Look at the bulbs in the front, or look at your tail/brake light bulbs and compare those to the ones in the rear turn stalks and you'll see the difference.

You may have a bad wire, connection, or bad bulb socket but the rears aren't supposed to be on all the time.
