Hazard light indicators came on GL1500

Postby fwsundance » Mon Dec 01, 2014 6:31 pm



Went for a ride this weekend on my 92 GL1500 trike. The hazard indicator lights came on. They didn't blink but stayed on and my turn signal indicators would not work and the cruise control would not engage. They would go off when in neutral. Does anyone have any ideas they can share? I appreciate any and all feedback

Sounds like one of yours turn signal bulbs has lost it ground, causing a backfeed. Check the bulbs and see which one is not lighting up good.

It does sound like a bad ground problem.
There are 2 common ground connector blocks in the 1500s wiring harness that tend to over heat. They are on both sides of the frame, orange in color, wrapped in electrical tape. Located about the knee area behind the side shelters.

If you have a trailer connection you might also check there. The connections have given me trouble with damage being caused by abrasion and or road grime. They can become green inside leading to all sorts of electrical malfunctions.
