power to radio and accessories

Postby arnoldg » Sat Jul 05, 2014 3:43 pm



I am not getting power to my radio and to my voltage indicator gauge and clock gauge. I checked all the fuses and all were good. Is there any way to check how many fuses go to these accessories and where they are located. this is on my 1982 goldwing gl

i'll assume 'checked good' means tested in some way and not just looked at

sounds like you are on top of the possible fuse issues, looks like at the least, wiring issues at this point, i'd get a wiring diagram and start with basic troubleshooting

I can't figure out what all those fuses in thre are for. The only accessories I have are the radio and cigar rest lighter, and there's a jumble of wires in there. Every time I try to power up the radio, a fuse blows. I'm beginning to suspect a short elsewhere

i also can not figure what all the fuses go to but i feel that there is a another fuse in there somewhere that is burned and
the reason why i don't have power to my radio and to the voltage gauge. i looked in my owners manual and it has no wiring diagram.
Does anyone know how I can get a wiring diagram or a troubleshooting manual?

That diagram is good ,but if I'm not mistaken, it doesn't have the radio or any of those other inline fuses on it. Is there one for the fairing and accessories?

That diagram does not have the radio, cb, or cassette.

I have a diagram of how to install the whole system.
I do not know how to get it on the web.
It is 12 pages.
If anyone wants a paper copy pm me with name and address.

Click on the Manuals page at the top, and download the Honda Goldwing Clarion Type II Radio Installation Manual. It has a diagram inside that shows all the connectors, fuses, wire colors, etc.

Indeed, that's a useful manual. I'll have to take the time to chase all those wires down and figure out where the short is now. At least I have a map

GOT IT !!!. I opened up the left turn signal again and this time i replaced all six fuses in there with new ones even though they checked out good with the volt meter ohms. When I replaced the 2 amp fuse my radio and voltage gauge came on. So I got everything back up. Thanks to everyone for all
your ideas. the fuse wiring chart really helped, it showed me that there were no other fuses to the radio and volt meter. I hope this helps someone
in the future. THANKS AGAIN, I will continue to view and maybe help someone like I was.
