ON page 17, adding backup lights with two SPST relays, if I were adding the optional light switch, I would put a diode between terminal 85 of relay 2 and the splice in that wire. I would do this to prevent the ECM from thinking the machine is in reverse when the optional rear light switch is activated.
I looked at the Kawasaki Mule Pro - Smart Book. I like any of the relay methods; page 15, 16, or 17, better than just splicing into the ground wire to the reverse switch.RJMJR,
‘Have you ever connected backup lights off the transmission reverse switch through a relay circuit to power LED cube back up lights mounted in a rear bumper? I saw a couple of applications in the Kawasaki mule pro - smart book that claim ( if done properly) will not fry the ECM & will work properly when in reverse.
Are you aware of this book/application & if so, Do you endorse this application?
Man i was half way thou this tread and was thinking the Whole time im going to post the MuleBook pdf, then Wayla already done, thanks Jeremy! I would like to buy the man or men or woman who put that together and buy them a few cold drinks!! have used it multiple times for a few small add on's ive done and Going to do! Plus having all the Wiring schematics is Awesome
Thanks Zebrafive! I will use one of the relay options & update this thread when finished.I looked at the Kawasaki Mule Pro - Smart Book. I like any of the relay methods; page 15, 16, or 17, better than just splicing into the ground wire to the reverse switch.
If using the optional switch shown on page 17, I would add a diode. See my previous post #23.
Hello, This is great information, but I purchased a brand new 2020 mule pro fxt and I'm trying to install a winch. Those two wires (Brown / Red and Black / Yellow) are absent. I've looked all over the front hood area and I can't find them anywhere. Any ideas on where a 12v ignition source would be?Bigfish, did you happen to view the PDF in my first post on this thread. It shows the three places that Kaw provides for Plug and Play into the 12v circuits.
1) Front - Left side of the front area (Female Spade Connectors). "Horn Accessory" is a Brown/Yellow wire with 12v @ Ignition on from Fuse Box 1, Fuse #5, the 20A Light Fuse. You can plug directly into Ground on the right side up front to the Black/Yellow Horn Button Accessory wire.
2) Front - Center of the front area (Female Barrel Connectors). "Accessory Terminals Front" is a Brown/Red wire with 12v @ Ignition on from Fuse Box 1, Fuse #3, the 15A Accessory Fuse Front. There is also a Ground there - Black/Yellow.
3) Rear - Right rear area along the frame (Female Spade Connectors)." Accessory Terminals Rear" is a Brown/White wire with 12v @ Ignition on from Fuse Box 1, Fuse #4, the 15A Accessory Fuse Rear. There is also a Ground there - Black/Yellow wire.
