Wiring help needed
I am in the process of farkling out the 07 DL1000. I added the following successfully:
Electrical Connection Power Plate and Ground Block
Powerlet Socket and Powerlet Lighter Socket
J&M 2003 Unit
All was ok up to this point.
Here is the issue. I just added fog lights using the relay method. The lights and ground go to the battery and the switch is powereing the relay from the Power Plate.
After all was buttoned up I now have a problem that when turning off the ignition the Datel does not turn off right away. It counts down to about 3 volts then goes off. When the key is off I have 1.5 to 2.0 vokts still reading in the overall system on my volt meter not the Datel.
I removed the fuse for the fog lights and all connections for the fog lights and it is still doing it. So...I have current bleed somewhere not related to the fog lights.
But...here is the kicker, if the fog lights are hooked up and ON then the datel goes right off when I switch off the key. If fog lights are off I still have the two volts. Somehow, wherever the problem lies, the fog light circuit if completing the open issue when the lights are on.
I know this was alot to absorb but thanks for your thoughts on the matter.
