Blowen Fuses

Post by Willie McMahon » Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:05 pm



My Bro has a Honda Goldwing 1500 year 1995. It has started to blow fuses. The fuse which keeps blowing works the indicators. The fuse may not blow right away it may last for a day or so. At the minute the fuse it holding but the front indicators lights come on when you put the main light on but the indicators will not work and he has no Blake lights. Please could some one help us with this one.
Many thanks
Willie
P.S. This is my first post. I have a Honda Goldwing GL1800 year 2001 with 9995 miles from new. I took ill shortly after getting my bike new at a cost of £ 16500.00 pounds so have just started to put some miles on the clock this last year. We both think the Honda Goldwing it a wonderful piece of machinery.
Once again thank you.

You could start with checking the relays in the fuse/relay box on the left side of the bike. One of the relay might have a melted contact. Test the relays on the bench and inspect their pin holes and if necessary the wires behind the relay box.

If there is "add on" wiring inspect there.Especially if there's a trailer light plug.
Wiring can rub on a metal part and short intermittently blowing a fuse.
