Happy New Year guys! Connecting wires today and am having a problem with the brake lights not working. All the individual wires in the wiring harness tested good for continuity. When applying 12V to the white magneto wire, I have headlight, tail light and speedo lights working but no brake lights with either lever. The tail light bulb is good. I tested each individual brake light switch and I had continuity between both wires ( on the throttle side black and yellow wires for example) when the plunger on the switch is depressed like when the lever is at rest and an open circuit when the plunger is out as when you squeeze the brake lever.
Does that sound correct? Seems weird to me that you would have continuity with the plunger depressed.
I believe I have the headlight switch installed correctly (as it was when I took it apart) and the wires hooked up to it properly. On the double terminal side of the switch, I have the white double wires to the headlight and the single white wire to the speedo lights. On the opposite side of the switch, I have the black wire to the ground in the rear and the white wire to the magneto on the front terminal.
I have included the wiring diagram for your reference. Anyone good with electrical will hopefully be able to tell me what is wrong or at least something to check out.
Thanks for your replies! (edited)
