Motorcycle Lighting Circuits Board

This hands-on learning resource allows students to build a variety of motorcycle lighting circuits using a range of on-board components. Used in conjunction with our automotive cloud-based learning content, students are set tasks that encourage them to explore circuits practically to help develop their understanding of electrical components, circuits and systems. The resource is also focused on the development of diagnostic and fault-finding skills using real test equipment.

The optional cloud-based learning resources also offer supporting material in the form of presentations, investigations and assessments to underpin the practical tasks carried out.

Practical topics covered include:
  • Using a multimeter
  • Introduction to fault finding
  • Brake (stop) lamps
  • Dip/main (lo/hi) beam lamps
  • Direction indicator (turn signal) lamps
  • Side lamps (park and tail) lamps
  • Introduction to headlamp circuits
  • Relay circuits
  • Relay-controlled headlamp circuits
Typical activities include:
  • Use a digital multimeter to measure DC voltage and resistance continuity.
  • Use a multimeter to investigate an instrument lighting-circuit fault.
  • Investigate a brake (stop) lamp circuit using a multimeter.
  • Troubleshoot a faulty brake (stop) lamp circuit with a multimeter.
  • Construct a dip/main (lo/hi) beam circuit.
  • Troubleshoot a faulty dip/main (lo/hi) beam circuit using a multimeter.
  • Investigate how a flasher unit works.
  • Build a direction indicator (turn signal) circuit.
  • Troubleshoot a faulty direction indicator (turn signal) circuit.
  • Add direction indicator (turn signal) repeaters on instrument panel.
  • Troubleshoot a faulty side (park and tail) light circuit.
  • Construct a relay-operated headlamp circuit.
  • Build a complete motorcycle front-lighting system.
The circuit board provides the following features:
  • On-board mimic of a motorcycle, with access to the following circuit components:
    • 12V battery
    • Fuse (resettable)
    • Two relays
    • Flasher unit
    • Six different types of switches
    • Headlamp circuit with dip/main (lo/hi) beams
    • Park and tail (side) lamps
    • Brake (stop) lamp
    • Direction indicator (turn signal) lamps
    • Instrument panel repeater lamps

Note that this resource requires a 707-01 Autotronics Accessory Pack.
