I just put a trailer hitch on my 650... easy... I put the harness on for the trailer lightsI was testing the system out on every step... after I finished the wiring harness,,, I started up the Burg and all was well... When I started to button up the rear tupperware,,, I took care with the wiring but something got crossed up getting the Burg ready for a test ride... I have headlights but nothing else... no digital dash,,, no tail lights,,, no starter ,,, nothing...
Anybody got any ideas??? and all the fuses are ok... got to be something simple...

First thought the fuses under the seat or behind the air filter cover to the left of the glove box. No trailer is connected right?

Your first check should be the battery connections then report back here. :)

The first thing you should do is check the work you did to make sure you did not short something out. Whenever there is a problem right after working on something the best place to look is where you worked on it. You might try undoing whatever you did to see if that solves the problem.

You have probably blown the signal fuse. Likely there is a short somewhere in the wiring you added.

you are correct Buffalo... I looked at the fuse and it looked OK... but the ohm meter said open... That will teach me to ohm out a fuse instead of looking at it...

Thanks a lot... :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

A 2003 must be different from a 2007, because on a 2007 the headlights are supplied through fuse 5 "signal" as well as their own hi/low fuse (US) or left/right (European version)

The fuses will sometimes look good but a test light probe's tip in the little exposed area on the top of a fuse will let you know too. Look at the 15 AMP fuse in this Wiki link for the two exposed areas. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Elect ... e_type.svg
