No running lights 1985 LTD

Postby daveswing » Sun Sep 07, 2014 7:46 pm



Traced problem in drawing to Tail Light Relay. Can't find it on bike. Thought I found it beside rad cap but wire colors indicate it is Indicator Light Relay (after I replaced it). If I jump power from Ignition switch to TL1 circuit all the lights work. Anyone have any idea where this relay is located??

I had to do some research - apparently the tail light relay exists only on the LTD. Looks like the relay you found is the correct one:

GL1200 LTD Tail Light Relay
GL1200 LTD Tail Light Relay

Thanks for your time and info. I found a relay beside rad cap and removed. Shindengen ET-65. Honda still stocks this relay as it was used in bikes till 2002. Bought a new one and replaced. Didn't work. Checked the wire colors to this relay and found this was Indicator Light Check Relay according to electrical drawing (wires blue/red, Blue/orange,Green, Black/brown) and is a 4 pin red connector. According to drawing the wires feeding relay Tail Light Relay are Green, White, Black, Black with a light blue tube. It is a 4 pin black connector. Is there more than 1 relay in this area? I didn't see any. Still looking!!
