I installed a door jam switch to operate the dome light today on my 2018 X1100C. Now when I open the door my dome light comes on. The light is set up to come on by the ground being switched so this was an easy hack.
You are getting fancy! Looks like a nice module. If it works as well as the intermittent wiper module it will be a nice addition.I'm taking this one step further and adding a delay module so the light will stay on for a few seconds (adjustable) after shutting the door door. The module is programmable for amount of delay and also will shut light off after a few minutes if door is left open.
It monitors ignition and if ignition turned on the light fades as soon as the door is closed. If the door left open the light shuts off after 10 minutes of inactivity.www.ebay.com

It is kind of a pain to install where I put mine. Problem is you have to drill thru the frame which is a tube, so you have to drill through both sides. I see the same problem anywhere along the door frame. Putting it in the side of the dash seems feasible but you will have to run another wire to add a ground the switch + you have to make sure the switch is long enough to contact the door when it closes. The delay module seems like a nice idea. I didn't even know something like that was available.
I have a two pole switch coming and I hope to install it at drivers shoulder height on the plastic. There is enough space behind it and it is easy to get to. The switch is arriving this week so I hope to have a report by the end of the week. Have already snaked the wire and made the connections at the dome light so all I have to do (I hope) is to position the switch.
