Ecu plug

Good mornig all,

So question goes like this. 2017 RGS, Harley has made it so you cant have switched power from the Accessory plug under the left side cover unless you buy their switches. I have installed Show Chrome driving LEDs and ran all of the wires. The last thing I need is a switched power wire to tie into. Is there a reason why I should not buy a female 6 pin Deutsch plug and use the one pin in the data link connector that has switched power for the light switch hook up?

What's the amp draw on the circuit you want to tie in to the plug? Data connector is generally a very low amp circuit.

Good question. It is to power the little LED light on the switch.

Indicator LED on a switch should be no problem unless the BCM senses it as a short to ground and opens the circuit. I'd probably try a temporary connection before I ordered the right connector and pins.
