charging system short

#1

Post by Detroitblue » Sun Mar 27, 2005 7:00 am

It seems that that my charging system is shorting out while the generator light wire is connected to the "A" terminal of the generator.

Been having this problem since the spot lights were installed along with some wiring updates. My first symptom was that I would loose my battery would drain at night when I ran the spots. After a little trouble shooting I found that lifting the generator wire from the a terminal eliminated the short.

I have the 1958 duoglide with a 12v updated charging system and aftermarker electric starter.

Any suggestions ???

It sounds like you have a problem at your dash plate, possibly your bulb socket or the it's wired ?

Do you have your spot lights wired to the same post on your dash plate as your gen light wire is
