I know that this isn't specifically about a Bonneville, but the part that I am struggling with came from one and it's going to go into my Bonnie. Furthermore, people here are so knowledgeable and helpful I thought I would give it a try.
I upgraded my Bonnie's headlight to a PIAA Xtreme white. Since I have the original bulb sitting there I figured I do something useful with it. I had laying around a li-ion battery that I was using for other projects and I thought I could re-purpose an old flashlight (torch for those on the other side of the pond) to have as an emergency light by using the old Bonnie's bulb and the rechargeable li-ion battery, which can be stored and carried with my Bonnie in case of an emergency.
The trouble is, the bulb won't light up. The battery is a 12.6V 4800mAh battery. I tried connecting an LED light strip and the LED light works with the li-ion battery, I tried connecting the old H4 bulb to a car battery and that works, but the H4 bulb to the li-ion battery doesn't work.
What am I doing wrong? They batteries are both 12V DC, shouldn't that work?
Forchetto, everywhere I looked, the High Beam connector is the one opposite the Ground and the Low Beam is the on "on top"
