Where's the connector?

Replaced the triple tree, rebuilt the forks and installed new head bearings yesterday in my '01. After reassembling, my CB and audio controls on the left handlebar have decided they would go on strike. Turn signals work, cruise works(I think) and horn works. It looks like all those go through a blue 14 connector. Looks like it must be half way unplugged. Think it is located in between the fairing and the storage pockets(?). Anybody know what has to come off to access? Can I get to it by removing one of the storage pockets? Bike is over at the shop and I'm headed over there to tear back into it...

TIA!!!

The blue 14 pin and the light green 12 pin connectors under the right fairing pocket are the ones for the audio controls. You should be able to reach it through the pocket opening.

Techdude, what's with this? I went back to the manual and checked and it says it is a blue 14p. I'm not sure what I fixed, but I just reached in and reseated any connector I could find. So was it green or blue? 12 or 14... No difference, as I'm not going to dig back in just to satisfy my curiosity.... but....

Sorry, my mistake, I looked it up and saw C23 on the schematic, but referenced C24 from the pictures in the manual. The blue 14 pin (C23) is the correct plug for the controls except one wire and it's in C24. It's one of the ground wires for those switches and must have been disconnected. So we both got lucky... I corrected my earlier post above. Even the Doctor makes a booboo now and then.
