I would start with these two manuals, from the Manuals page here:

Honda Goldwing GL1200 A and D Honda Service Manual
Honda Goldwing GL1200L Limited Service Manual Supplement

There are members on this site with Ltd's, if after perusing the manuals you still need help try there. The site is dedicated to the 1200 series.

You will definatly want to get the LTD manuals downloaded and on your computer. Don't even think for a moment you can get away with the Claimer or Hayes manual as these bikes are very involved.
First thing to check is to see if the computer under the trunk is flashing a code (LED's on the left side) If it is you will need to look up the code in the manual and go from there. Also check to make sure all the fuses are OK. If it is your fuel light that is on and there is no code flashing on the side of the computer (your trunk light is probably not working as well as the clock in the travel computer) then check the in-line fuse located inside/under the left side fairing pocket.

If the code tells you it is the throttle positioning sensor dont panic, but you may want to take up drinking......

Good luck and keep us posted on what you discouver.
