Got any questions about the BMW's R1200RT/R1250RT's onboard audio, Bluetooth or the Electrical system?

Best place for +ve supply that is instant off with ignition?

Post by gadgetgaz »

I'm looking for a +12V supply under the seats that disconnects instantly with the ignition. All the ones I have found so far stay live for the standard CAN bus 45 seconds.
Does anyone know of one please?

How about the on-board fuse, have a look through this thread, http://sgbikerboy.com/2018/03/20/wiring ... 1200gs-lc/
it's for a GS but I believe the RT is the same.

This video supports the same theory, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTpsccTIW6Y just depends which fuse is selected.

Thanks David but I already tried those fuses. One is permanently live and the other stays live for about 45 seconds after switching off the ignition.

Is the supply to the heated passenger's seat (before the rocker switch) switched on/off with the ignition. Might only be live with the engine running.

The tail/brake light could be an option but I think the voltage varies and may not be 12V all the time.
