    Shorting Link next to Front Accessory Socket

    Does anyone know what the plug and socket positioned behind the glovebox near the 12v outlet is for? The photo is of the plug, the socket is wired in. I couldn't find any chat about it? I thought I could use it as a power outlet for new lights but couldn't get any voltage out of it even with the engine running. Then I noticed that the wire in the plug connects the pins together, making a circuit for something??

    Itís nothing to do with the Locking Solenoid connector !  :164:

    It is not present on all Trophies.

    On a new Trophy, where the socket is present,
    it has a Blanking Plug with no wires inserted.

    This is replaced with the Shorting Plug ( T2502509 )
    that you have, and is used when Heated Grips are fitted
    to activate the  Icons that appear on the Instrument Panel
    display when the Heated Grips are switched on.

    Cheers  :821:

    You're a legend Coconut! How do you know all this stuff? This post was the closest I could find (wiring and near the solenoid) but I did wonder where to post. Should I have started a new post?  :430:

    I assume I can't use this plug then to take power off for some switchback lights and will have to connect to the cigarette plug. I was wondering if you know of any double plugs to connect into the back of the cigarette plug or something to make it easier to take an extra power line out, but I should probably post that on the switchback threads which I do know are there!  :001:

    A new Topic would probably have been better -
    The Forum Admin or Moderators will see to that though if necessary.

    How do I know all this stuff ? - By having the right background for "general" knowledge,
    along with many years of Trophy ownership and an inquisitive nature for the specific stuff !

    You can not use that connector for a Power take off.

    Cheers  :821:

    It is possible ( but fiddly ) to remove the spade terminals from the Accessory Socket
    connector Housing by inserting a fine tool to depress the retaining "barb" :



    With the Pins removed from the housing, use a "Piggy Back" spade connector
    on the Live wire to your Switchback lights, clip the Live wire for the Accessory Socket
    onto the extra "Piggy Back" spade, and then fit it back onto the Accessory Socket.



    The original Ground wire just pushes back on. 

    Keep the now redundant housing in case you ever want to revert to stock.

    Cheers  :821:

    This New Topic has been created after being split from an unrelated Topic

    Almost all the shorting link related posts are found in the "heated grips" installation threads.
