Electrical problem (ignition)
I am installing the Cyclone 866F on my Strom 650, and have run into a big fat ugly roadblock. The first step in the instructions is to tap into the ignition wire, and the rest involves getting power form the battery and rerouting the kill switch circuit through the alarm itself. Those connections seem to work fine...but the ignition one is giving me a headache.
I soldered the ignition wire back together, only this time with one of the wires leading to the alarm included in the mix. The alarm itself is NOT plugged in, and thus NOT drawing any power from anywhere.
However, my ignition no longer works. I turn the key and...nothing. No headlights, no dash lights. Fuse is ok, solder is tight.
Only 2 wires were cut in this whole process, so I know I'm not missing a ghost wire somewhere.
Anybody have any ideas?
