Default Wiring Help...

I have a 2008 Jackpot.. Today I installed a side mount license bracket with tail light.. When I wired it up.. I did a test I connected it to the main wire harness to the tail light.. Everything worked, put when I plug in the tail light plug which I tap into.. Only the tail light comes on, not the light on the plate frame..

Only 2 wires...

Most likely the license platewires came lose during the install. Check wires and connections.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Use a meter and check the tail light plug for power. If it's not there, trace the wiring back to the main harness to see if it's actually connected.

I tried that.. did it all again.. same thing.. Tail light on bike works, but not on plate.. If I un-plug the tail light plug, the bike tail light will go out... BUT the Lic. plate light will work..

Just cant seem to get them both on when connected..

use the brown wire from the plate lights and it should work.
