Hi guys, I bought a Beltronics detector and the rest of the stuff to mount on my motorcycle. Having some trouble, and I think it is in the SmartPlug. Anybody have trouble with SmartPlugs? Here's the problem:
06 Honda Sabre. Cracked open headlight. Found the "Always-On" hotwire to the blinkers that has a constant 12v when the key is on. Checked it with a voltmeter. Everything OK. As instructed, tied the red/blk SmartPlug wire into that constant 12v blinker wire. Ground the other SmartPlug wire on a chassie bolt. Turned the key on. All lights on the bike light up. There should be 12v going into the SmartPlug.
Pluged the phone-jack style plug into the Beltronics detector. nothing. Hit all the buttons on the detector. Nothing. Hit the button on the SmartPlug a few times. Nothing. jiggled all the wires. Nothing. I have no way of verifying that there is nothing comming out of the plug attaching to the detector, but that seems like a good conclusions.
Took the detector over to my car and plugged it into the cigarett lighter. Works just fine.
