Can someone tell me how the wire harness is routed to the taillights. I am installing taillights on my 314 and replacing the complete wire harness and would like to run the wire to the rear as it is suppose to be.

Thanks for any help.

I can check the service manual at home if you like.  I ran the wire under the gas tank and above the frame under the left side of the pedestal.  I might have pics somewhere...

Larry, to the best of my recollection it goes down the inside of the console and under it, then along the top of the left frame rail and up and over the gas tank to terminate in connectors for the lights near the rear fender deck mount. That's the way my 314 was wired when I got it. I wired both the 314 and 317 that way. The seat switch wiring follows the same route but comes up through the hole under the seat on it's way over the gas tank. That may not be the way they were wired when new, I have no way of knowing the original wire routing.

from the light switch 

one wire to the switch - power to the switch

two wires from the switch

one goes to the front - on the front there should be a disconnect for the headlights - so the hood can be removed

one goes to the rear - under the seat pan there should be a disconnect for the rear light - so the set pan can be removed

Larry, you'll find many schematics in the internet - mostly for the 318. but I don't know, if it works.

No Wolfgang the 318 is a completely different beast. It has a much more complex electrical system with a PC board.  Heres the 314 wiring diagram. It's pretty simple. Oddly this diagram doesn't show the lights. I think the lights may have been added after a certain ser. No. and the rear lights may have been optional on the 314. It may only have had reflectors in the back.

Wow! Lots of bulbs in those little things. LED's I guess?  What kinda price those have?  I've tried to find the 2-bulb ones in past, but with changing of light bulbs now days, even those are going away it seems. In future we won't be able to even find bulbs for most of the  old style lights still working and have to update, like it or not.

I think the LED marker lights were $10 the last time I picked up a set.  They were $17 when I purchased the first set for the 120.

Here are a few pics of the LEDs on the 120 and the harness that I made for it.  I used some extra auto wiring harness pieces for it.

Those are the same lights I am using  ($7.69) at wally world or ($7.89) at Flying J truck stop. I tried       led bulbs in a set of 1 bulb marker lights but didn't like the look. I also have marker lights on the front. I had flashers set up but the LED s won't flash.

Thanks for all the info on light wire . I'm going to post another thread in a few minutes.on a different problem.
