Hello All,
does anyone have a clear wiring diagram for a bx23s, I am hoping to install some auxiliary lighting on my rops for this winters snow blowing, I would like it too be wired so the tractor has to be on and running to operate, I am planning on adding a dashboard mounted on/off switch.
thanks

Check your fuse block. You may have a work light fuse in place. On my L2501 it's a ten amp fuse. Since my light bar only draws five amps it was an ideal source. The factory connector on mine is under the left rear fender. I don't know how a BX is wired but that's a starting point for you.

there is a lot of threads on this with ideas. But to get you started. There is an auxiliary 12v pigtail tied up in wire wrap near your 3 point hitch. I used that to feed the power, added water proof box w switches to the SMV sign mount stud, and install whatever lights ur heart desires.

Lights, winches, operator cooling fan, motorized material spreader, radio, jump start cable, ect. Maximum versatility requires adding your own electrical system.

Thanks, that what I was looking for, so it’s inside the wire loom on the left rear side looking forward correct

There's a WSM available on www.kubotabooks.com.
I downloaded that WS manual recently, and it was very nice with color pictures and so on, BUT the electrical diagram images were pi$$ poor, frankly. Hard to make out...frustrating to say the least.

Other than that, the WS manual was very good. But I too was interested in the electrical drawings...:(

Glad and sad, that I'm not the only one truly disappointed with the quality of the wiring diagrams for the BX23s. Even one PMed me from another orangeguy, though better, isn't really. By the time you zoom in a section, you cannot READ the text ! Reminds me I have to email the dealer ,see if he's got a REAL good PDF.
