BLOWN RELAY ?

Postby BUBBACAYMAN » Tue Jun 25, 2013 9:23 pm



OK, THE OLE MAN MESSED UP AGAIN.

WAS WIRING THE LIGHTS TO A TRAILER FROM THE 1993 GL1500 I AND LET 2 WIRES TOUCH BACK AT THE SLPICES, HEARD
A SNAP AND THE RUNNING LIGHTS TAIL LIGHTS WENT DARK. SEARCH AS I DID, I FIND NO FUSES BLOWN AND CAN ONLY
SUSPECT THAT THE # 3 OMRON RELAY HAS BLOWN.

SO IS THAT WHAT EVERYONE THINKS AND IS THERE A CHEAPER REPLACEMENT THAT WILL WORK LESS THAN $25 :oops:

Did you check both fuse boxes?

This is one of the best reasons for wiring in a trailer light isolation kit. $26 and a wiring fault will cause you will blow the fuse in the harness, not somewhere in your bike: http://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1500_ ... /129/59647

As for the relays - yes, you can find cheaper replacements. Should you? People who have tried, find that the cheap replacements end up failing soon. There's a reason that Honda charges an arm and a leg for relays, and it's not just to line their pockets.

To check the relay, just swap it with a known good relay and see if it fixes the problem.
