Default Electrical glitch

Went to fire up the bike to go to work. I have the Digital Guard Dawg installed so I just flip the Run-Stop switch to Run, and ignition energizes, but no headlight. I heard the ignitor but no light. Turned off and on again, weird flickering on/off etc without me doing anything. It's a new battery that I installed about a month ago. My accessories work without issue so I don't think it's a battery connection issue.

I think the problem is with the DGD. I'm going to take it out of the equation and go back to the key and see if it helps...

But on the real I think you are on the right track with removing anything that has been added which could be a possibility.
I am following because now I am curious. LOL

I did a bunch of electrical work on it the other day; I wired in a new stereo and a controller that allows me to use the factory controls with the aftermarket radio. But, like I said, the accessories work fine. Something is up with the ignition trigger, so I'll start there.

Well the DGD is pretty new to me and I'm running a used one so I'll be watching this to see if that the issue.

Not to derail too much but did you get pics of your new stereo setup? I'm curious how that looks.

I really hope it isn't the DGD and an easy fix for you. Now you got me thinking I might throw my key ignition it saddlebag for my upcoming long distance trip. Haha.

I’ve had the Scorpio/Victory keyless ignition for a few years now with zero issues. Though my oem ignition switch has been wrapped in a small towel in my saddlebag ever since.

All the best,

I'm hoping it's just a loose/dirty connection...

Do any of the items you recently wired in draw power all the time? (On purpose or accidentally)

Check the battery voltage to see if it's still topped up.

Disconnect everything you've added, put a charger on the battery, give it another try.

Not all those who wander are lost.
