Ok....I admit it, I suck at electrical stuff...that said, I do know how to align the + & - poles on batteries so I can use the remoter for the TV..... 2009 990 ADV My brake light will not light. It's got power at the socket however. Using a multimeter, If I turn the bike on, brakes OFF, I get ~45 milliamperes (it's all up and down though, not really a steady reading, but never into volts). Activate the brake, the reading jumps up to ~10 volts. Start the bike and activate the brake, and the reading goes up to ~13 volts. Ok...so far, so good. I tried 3 different single filament bulbs ( not sure if I could have an incorrect bulb? I should mention, bike is brand new to me last week) but I cannot get the bulbs to light?! I even tried taking the socket apart and touching the wires directly to the side and base of the bulb to isolate the socket. No luck. Should I be able to light the bulb holding it in my hands touching bare wires to the sides and base? I thought that would definitely work. I tried it with bike running, bike off, etc. Got power every time and it cycles with the brake switches, but the bulb will not light up. The rest of the circuit does work by the way, (horn beeps) I checked and swapped the fuse as well just to be sure it's not something funky going on with the fuse. I'm out of ideas.....anyone got any thoughts on what's wrong??
