1984 Goldwing Aspencade clock

Postby rickya » Fri May 06, 2011 11:44 pm



( 1984 Goldwing Aspencade clock ) This year when I tried to set the clock after reinstalling the battery, I pushed the button as usual and now to the left of the lcd the am is over the pm and it just shows a zero for the hour and a zero for the minutes. I hold the button in and it does not blink for the hour to be changed...

I was told there possibly could be a watch battery for the clocks memory ???

Please help,

Thanks,

Rick

Mine has cut in and out since I bought the bike. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it shows weird display (like yours). I gave up trying to figure out what was wrong with it, and check my watch when I need to.

I don't know if they have an internal battery,but, you can find a few on e-bay. I've seen them priced from $15~$200! :shock: Just keep looking and I'm sure you will get one there if you want to replace it. :idea:

a friend who has an Interstate says his did the same thing and he sprayed light silicone spray behind the button that sets the time on the clock...

not sure if I should spray silicone in there or not...

Rick,

Hmmm, not sure. Might try spraying some contact cleaner in first - that shouldn't hurt anything electrically - maybe I'll give it a shot when I get home tonight.

My clock just started flashing on an off. Checked Clymer manual but cannot find instruction on clock battery replacement. Would anyone be able to provide information on how to replace the battery on the quartz clock?

Under the left hand pocket there are two fuses, the smallest of the two provides memory for the clock and radio.

If the fuse is OK check that there is voltage present at the fuse.

If not have a close look at the red & white wire at the solenoid.
