97 GL1500 turn signal auto cancel not working

Postby popellis » Wed Apr 29, 2015 4:20 pm



hi all

I moved up last year from a 85 gl1200 to a 97 GL1500, I replaced the dash lights with LED's I did not like the blue dash light so I replaced them with white LED this year. Last year and this year I have been having problems with the turn signal indicator not working all the time since I changed them to LED ,mostly the left one.
Also I would turn the hazards on and only one side would flash. Now when I turn the signals on and they do not shut off by themselves . I just replaced the right cornering light relay as it would not shut off last year. The cornering light shuts off now. anyone have any ideas. I get a little tired of tracing electrical issues. The LCD is not working again.

The self cancel is controlled with an input from the speed sensor via the LCD. No LCD no self cancel.
This is what I do
Local and need repair help with your 1500, Valkyrie or ST please PM

It doesn't use the bank angle sensor actually, but it does use an angle sensor built into the steering stem that reads the angle of the handlebars:

As for the hazards only flashing one turn signal - mine started doing the same thing (flashing only the left one) this spring - it fixes itself after it's been on for 10-20 seconds. I had a look at the schematic, and the only component in the bike that can cause this is the hazard switch itself, so it looks like I need to pull my switches apart and get some contact cleaner up in there.
