PA50ii - Taillight

I am having an issue with my taillight. The bulbs were burnt out from when I received this bike a couple months ago, finally got around to replacing them. I’m not sure the correct operation first off. I’m assuming that the license plate bulb is supposed to be always lit, then when using the front brake the plunger comes out and lights the bulb above and makes the taillight brighter.

According to the wiring diagram for PA50 the connections are are different. My bulbs are stacked on top of one another with the prongs to the bulbs at 9oclock and one prong at 12oclock facing as you ride. I’ve hooked them up every different way I could hook up three wires. With the plunger in I have no lights constantly. With it out I can either get the bottom bulb to turn on with the top hardly on at all, or the top bulb on and the bottom one at all depending on the way the wires are hooked up. Never do I have lights with the brake at it’s normal position nor do I get them to come on simultaneously. I’ve recheck all wiring on the bike and I’m pretty certain it’s hooked up the way the diagram shows. Anything else I should be looking at?

Re: PA50ii - Taillight

mopeds only produce power while its running, lots of time the ligjts are super dim unless you rev the motor, or checking it out in the dark. Does your hobbit has a battery? Clean and ensure tightness on all connections

I don’t have a battery. I have no front brake cable connected right now so the lever isn’t pushing the plunger in allowing me to rev and hold the taillight in my hand. I think I’ll replace all the barrel wire connections with fresh connections. I was just wonder if I was overlooking something.

Re: PA50ii - Taillight

Tail light will be very dim at idle, is to be on always with headlight, brake-light comes on with either lever. Clean sockets I guess, but get the brake cable on and check it out while riding or at night as suggested above.

That looks confusing

Re: PA50ii - Taillight

Double check the tail light wiring. A lot of them go under the fender, drop down on the wheel, get bare spots, and can ground or short.
