New from South Africa and need help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Postby SA Goldie » Mon Feb 25, 2013 11:11 pm



Good Morning to all and thank u for a lovely site. I have just become the proud owner of a 1993 GL1500 SE after riding my GL1100 years. The 1500 is a dream machine but i do have some problems. The cruise control and the compressor doesnt work and the lcd display is totally dead. Is there something, apart from the fuses, that i can check before i start stripping?
Thanks guys
Gary

Hello and welcome to the forum.
You may want to check the relays for the cruise control and compressor.

Welcome to the forum.
The compressor only works under two specific conditions.
1, Adjusting air suspension can only be done when the bike ignition switch is on (running or not,) and the bike is NOT in gear.
2, External air hose can only be used when the ignition switch is turned to Park.

Your cruise control issue may be more difficult to rectify, though not necessarily difficult to repair. While this might not be the problem you're having, it is by far a ridiculously simple thing to check before you pull your hair out. Anyway, here is a short write up I did on a VERY COMMON C.C. issue with these GL1500's, look at the 7th entry in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12019


Keep the rubber side down.
