The wiring was a mess on this '87 CMX250. I re-connected everything and consulted a wiring diagram whenever I was unsure. At the end, I had one leftover pair of brown wires sticking out of the harness that seem to have no home:
Given my limited knowledge in this area, I have to ask: Is this normal?
The main reason I have any doubts is because I'm still having some turn signal issues that I can't seem to resolve. I plan to purchase a new flasher next time I'm in town, because I suspect it's at least part of the problem.
When I started troubleshooting, the right signals were working just fine, but the left signals would just stay on when initiated. Now that I've re-wired everything, the issue is reversed and slightly different: the left signals work fine, but the right rear signal stays constant when initiated; while the right front signal does nothing whatsoever.
Confused yet? I know I am.
I know all my bulbs work, and the rear turn signals are brand new aftermarket deals. BUT, the license plate light quit working on me half way through this whole troubleshooting process. The bulb is fine, and even when I bypass the socket, I still get no light. This problem seemed to happen out of nowhere and for no obvious reason.
Anyway, I'm just looking for some tips, insight, or help of any kind... and an answer about my homeless brown wires
