Wiring Issue

Somewhere along the way with my modifications, I seem to have crossed some wires... need a little help with suggestions as to how to diagnose the issue.

My headlight works fine (using an HID), but when I put the brights on - the instrument cluster also turns on the low fuel light. I've visually inspected all the wires, and can't seem to find the reason that way.

What's the best way to find the issue without ripping all the wiring out and starting over?

TIA for any suggs.

Well, you have a major problem. Bike is now junk. Work wasted.

You should not be wrenching on anything now or in the future.

Did you work inside the tank? Filter change?

I was thinking it might have been the sensor its self. I believe it grounds at the filter clamp.

I'll assume it has fuel since you were riding it lately.
