turn signal switch

Postby silver1lining » Fri Jul 04, 2014 7:28 am



'89 Goldwing Aspencade The turn signal switch is
not working and it has been discontinued by Honda. Is there an aftermarket or another solution. I am still trying to find an older switch from a salvage yard(if you have any names or contacts it would help) Thanks

Often times the switches can be taken apart and cleaned with plastic safe contact cleaner... Might be worth a try... Ya can Google about the process as I'm sure there are several YouTube videos on the process... I have rejuvenated several with this method... Sometimes it's just a matter of a screw that comes loose in the switch as well...

This might help too...

It does require a good bit of digging to get to the connectors... Does the switch you have feel right or does it feel loose and broken inside ??? If it does not show any sign of breakage and you cleaned it up, then it likely is not the source of your problems...
