I have been recently putting back together and X22. I redid the wire harness with an X18 wire harness. I got a wire diagram from SD Scooters that shows all of the plug ins for the x18. I plugged everything in and I get no "Power on anything"! I checked the battery and I am reading 12.71 Volts. I am getting the same at the starter relay. I did an inline fuse and I have voltage at the fuse, but nothing else. The diagram shows a ground conected to the frame, but the only ground the harness has is connected with a black wire which I have connected to the negative side of the battery. How can I test where the voltage stops? Any help would be great!

Hey looking at that diagram u sent me it doesn't seem right they way the power should flow I would use a test light start from the battery and go from there following along the harness to each thing that should have power if that checks out alright then I would connect the ground side of the test light to the positive on the battery and check and make sure all the grounds were ok I wish you were closer to me doing this trouble shooting with text sux if I wad there it wouldn't b more than a 5-10 min fix dam it we will figure this out tho

bclair40, you said that you have only 1 gnd. The harness may plug into components such as the starter motor. However, these items need a Ground side as shown in the schematic. So check these.

Test light.... Looks like a screwdriver but has a light in the handle and an alligator clip on a 2-3ft wire out the back of said handle...clip on ground, touch the tip to something "hot" bulb lights up...same for vice versa

You can get a digital volt/amp meter at H/F Tools for less than $7.

and with the test light you can check grounds as well just hook the clip to positive and touch it to what is supposed to be a ground and it should light up as well

I love my power prob I use I almost everyday to trouble shoot at work one of the best tools I got so far you can power up ground or complete a circuit as well and its a built in volt meter I say every one needs one of those and a decent multimeter and you can troubleshoot anything
