Autoswitch gave up. Suggestions?
Dealer installed an Autoswitch on my '06 to turn the Motolights on and off from the headlight switch. Basically, you needed to flash the headlights a couple of times to turn them on or off.
Seemed like a nice way to avoid the Motolight's switch being placed somewhere on the bike. Plus it had a LED to tell me that they were on or off (glows green if on; red if off).
Well it puked and all I get it a LED light but not Motolight operation. Dealer said they turn on by wiring the relay hot, consequently the power out of the Autoswitch died.
Another dealer said they wire their's through the turn signal switch. The uy at Autoswitch said it won't work that way on the newer Can-Bus bikes. He said they are coming out with a newer Can-Bus Autoswitch that should do that, but they've been saying that for a long time now.
Anyone else have a suggestion on how to get the Motolights to turn on? The installing dealer kept the old switch and Motolight want $85 for the wiring and switch that I didn't get back from the dealer. Too late now, plus the dealer is 300 miles distant so riding up there to get get it fixed, waiting overnight in a motel, and riding back would cost more than $85 for them to fix it right. No doubt they'd say "What switch?" anyhoo as it's been about a year since.
