Help please help

Postby gmoe » Mon Mar 11, 2013 10:31 pm



i owned my 1985 goldwing GL1200 limited edition for only 5 days.I have rode around 30 miles on it. So today I took it to work and made it there on the way home as I was braking for a red light all electrical went dead the clock on the nav computer and all the bike died and would not start.
the man I bought the bike from had a battery tender hooked up and told me to always have it plugged in if i was not riding it the air ride system and auto level system dos not work I only get EEE on both front and rear. when the bike died i tried to jump it and I got nothing it was like no cables where on the battery.

Please any suggestions or advise on this matter is greatly appreciated. Just trying to find out a good starting point to work on this and fix it.

any all info I can give I will

!st thing I would do is pull the cover over the battery and there is a solenoid on the positive battery cable, there is a thirty 30 amp fuse and also if you pop open the cover on the solenoid there is a dog bone flat fuse, either one could have blown. The other fuses are under the fake tank, lift out the glovebox and they are under there. Thats the 1st things I would check. Here is a link to an article that has some great info: http://gl1200goldwings.com/techcenter/article1004.htm

Sounds like your battery wasn't being charged, and the bike was running off the battery. The battery got lower and lower, and when you hit the brakes, the added load killed the engine. Then trying to restart it really sealed the deal.

First thing to do is to check the 30 amp master/dogbone fuse as described above. Next, check the connector on the three yellow wires, next to the solenoid containing the master fuse. Pull that connector apart and check the state.
