Audiovox CC100 install question

Okay, I've got it installed. When I hit set the led lights up. When I hit resume the led lights up. When I hit the brake the led lights up. The chain doesn't bind. The vacuum is strong.

It does not work! I can reach down and pull on the cable while riding and it move freely and speeds me up.

The only thing I can think of is the brake relay I installed. The brake connection was showing 12v when depressed and .07v when it was not depressed. Because of that I put a relay in line to get that voltage down to 0. I suppose I could have installed it wrong.

Does anyone have any words of wisdom? Also if anyone knows a better relay then a $9 NAPA part I'll order that instead. Please help, I'd like to get the bike buttoned back up by next weekend.

Thanks,
-GW

Do you have LED brake light or OEM?

Good question. The unit seeks ground through the brake light filaments. An LED brake light doesn't provide a ground connection. That's what the brake relay is for. See the diagram at http://11109.rapidforum.com/topic=109771864108 for wiring suggestions.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Great point, I do have LED taillights. I still have the stockers, I'll try swapping them.

Is that some kind of standard relay? My relay only has three posts.

Sho nuff!

I put the regular bulbs back and she worked.

I noticed it surged quite a bit at 40-45mph. Is that normal or do I have something still slightly out of wack?

That's the very bottom range it works at. Mine doesn't have a problem there but it is the bleeding edge. You can use the LED brake lights if you add a relay as shown in my last link.

I don't suppose you have a part number or model for that relay? As I said the best NAPA could do for me was a three prong job that obviously didn't work.

Now now, you come on UP and I'll do yours. But you gotta get rid of the LED taillights or get someone to reveal the part number for the relay.
