I have a 2001 1800. Does anyone know what is the female connector that is attached to the front of the ignition switch for? Is there a wire with a male connector under the radio area that connects to it? :?

Is something not working? I remember you were trying to get the switch bolts out the other day
Is there a clean look inside the connector- unused/ fresh?
Can you post a pic?

Often there are extra wires for different countries requirements on equipment or accessories, same as cars have
1 wiring harness fits 30 countries rules... one needs DRL lighting, another calls for extra side markers etc.

Sometimes the bike will not start. I took all of the Tupperware off and changed the air filter. After re-installing the main cover I noticed I did not connect the harness just in front of the ignition switch. I guess the male end is still under the cover.

Back to the original problem. Sometimes the bike will not start when pressing the starter switch. About a week ago I was riding along and the engine suddenly died for about three seconds. I was guessing the ignition switch had some bad connectors, but a mechanic friend suggested loose connections somewhere. Now I am about ready to see if the tightening of some ground wires solved the problem. thanks for your response.

Check the battery connections.

Check the cut off switch atop the right switch POD. My 02 would die for a split second flash an F1 code and recover faster than I could react. I sprayed out my switch and flipped it back and forth a few times and it only happens now if I spaz and rock the switch accidentally when I'm in bulky gloves. The switch should feel loose and should actuate with three positive detent positions and no rattle.
