Neutral light error

Post by pdays » Sat Jul 02, 2011 11:32 am

1983 GL1100 Neutral light on/b] when clutch handle is pulled in any gear. Is on also when in neutral. Goes out when clutch is released in any gear. This started after starter solenoid replacement. Any Ideas?

There is a diode located underneath your false tank, on the left side, next to the regulator and turn signal flasher. It has failed shorted. Replace it and it will solve your problem.

Thanks WingAdmin,

I just replaced my starter solenoid and mine started doing the same thing. I will replace the diode and let you know how that works.
