blue - work light positive
orange and red/yellow for tail and brake.

The relay has numbers on the bottom side and here is how to wire it:
relay 85 and 30 tied together to red/yellow
relay 87
relay 87a to red
relay 86 to orange


This will make the tail lights come on with the key on and/or headlights. Then the brake pedal will activate the new brake lights
I hate to be a tard but you just "spliced" into these lines to run the relay. This keep the tail lights functioning as normal, right...?
Thanks

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

yes, works as designed plus the new tail lights. I solder all connections to keep water from causing a problem later.

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

thanks steve, i think i know what to do now. i read another thread, that the rzr tail lights work off the ground, not like a car where positive is sent to the tail and brake lights. i should be able to tap into the ground and install a switch to break it and that should kill the lights. thanks again , rich

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

I want to add a LED tail/brake light assembly at the center of my Polaris hard top roof. Would the relay work for this application? It is a single ground wire and hot of each of the brake and tail lights.

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

Look at post #20 I did. There is a wiring diagram I did that is correct. I had a wire wrong on the first post.

http://www.rzrforums.net/lighting-st...hematic-2.html

Yes, this is the way to another break/tail light to a rzr.

No, it is not a single ground and hot like you would think. You have to use a relay like the wiring diagram shows.

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

So if I wanted my brake lights to work all of the time but the taillights to only be on with the headlight switch, can you please explain to me what I need to do? I do understand standard auto wiring, but can someone please explain what it really taking place w/ the stock wiring (how it's really working with only one ground wire serving two lights?) thanks.

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

Bump - I understand the attachment in this thread, but I still would like to know how to use this same wiring but only have the taillights on with the headlight switch (as I'm going to wire in separate running lights on their own switch). I'll also use this schematic to wire the 7 round trailer hitch plug I plan on adding to the RZR. Thanks in advance.

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

Polaris ran the wiring this way since the brakes run off a pressure switch that also functions as a starter override.

Now my questions are....Are the wire colors on a 09 and up the same colors?

Has anyone verified that this will work for just putting LED bulbs in the factory taillights?

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

I'm going to monkey with this in the coming week or so. I'd like to run LED tails so I was thinking of using the diagram above to actually rewire the factory tail/brake lights. I also want the taillights to only be on with the headlights, so I need to figure out how to do that as well. I'll let you know when I'm finished. Thanks.

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

I installed my Pete's racing rear light bar, amber/red/wht lights. I couldn't get the running lights to light without pushing the brake pedal. I just ran a seperate wire to the ambers and wired the relay like the diagrahm. Brake lights work fine, just no running lights going through the realy.

I installed the relay for the brake lights and swapped the brown wire and red/yellow wires at the rear sockets
and stubbed out after the relay for my high level LED brake/tail light and it works good.

Re: Tail light wiring schematic

Please see the schematic that I put together. I haven't wired this yet, but I think it's all going to work. I may need to swap the wires inside the oem sockets as is mentioned on another post. I should be able to finalize all of this wiring in the next week or two and then I will post my final results. Thanks.
