Canít find an ACC wire to connect my headlight halo.

Iím desperate, Iíve been scouring the inter-webs trying to find a hopefully simple answer or solution to my problem. I purchased a day breaker headlight with a halo ring that is powered by a Bluetooth based switcher. I can get everything working by simply connecting the red and black wires to the positive and negative of the battery. All good, except even after turning off the key, the halo is still on. I contacted the company and they suggested that I connect the halo wiring to an ACC wire, then that way when I turn off the bike, everything goes off. I have attached a few photos showing you the negative wire connected to the negative side of the battery and the red wire hanging free. I need to tie in the red wire to an ACC connection. I was thinking of wiring it to the license plate light, but Iím not sure which wire that would be. Iím hoping there is any easy solution. Pleas help. Thanks!

Itís a 2016 HD Street 750

If you remove the fuse cover you will see a fuse for ACC. Simply look at the wire that goes from there (I am not at home or I would look for you - if you get stuck I will look later) - if you unwrap the black insulation you will find the wire, just fetch the plastic off and solder / fix a wire from this for your positive supply. This supply is 'switched' and will cut out when the ignition is turned off.

Ok, well I was finally able to get to the bike and pull of the fuse cover. I was hoping there would be a small sticker telling me what fuses are for what part of the bike, but alas no. This is what Iím looking at.

Any ideas?

LOL, yep - that's the one. Can't remember but the wire FROM the fuse is red / grey or red / yellow I think - you will easily find it. As you can see that circuit can carry 5 amps - that should be more than enough for the halo.


I fitted additional LED lights to my bike using this circuit, with an additional switch on the handlebars - works fine.


Have fun.

The fuse that was there from the dealer was a 15amp! What I ended up doing is connecting the black wire to the battery and the red wire, I soldered to the actual prong of the fuse. I didnít want to cut any wiring. So itís working great now. No problems, knock wood. Here is a shot of it working. Also, I lifted the gas tank and ran the wire under it per the suggestion of other posters. Iím glad I did it because I originally ran it down the side of the bike and zip tied it. Now itís super clean. Check it. Thanks for your help. I couldnít have done it without you.

Glad you fixed it but why didnt you just use the side light wires that were behind the headlight ??
Ignition switched - just what you needed.

Hey, the question was asked two days ago and you chimed in just now. Things move fast on this forum, especially with new owners.
