Need info on how to change cruise control

Postby ronnett » Wed Oct 07, 2009 12:45 pm



Looking for info on changing my cruise control on a 1989 GL1500. The shop said the servo valve was bad and would cost $400.00 for new fix. I found a salvaged one for $10.00 and now is the time to change it out. Any help would be apprieciated. thank you

Download the GL1500 service manual from the Manuals page here, and you'll find the procedure starting on page 4-75.

What was your cruise control doing (besides not working...lol)? I have a 94 GL1500. The "cruise on" indicator light will light on the dash, and the "cruise set" light will come on when I try to set the cruise, but it immediately goes out and I cannot set the cruise. Is this similar to your problem? Thanks. Tony

This is the same problem my 1998 Goldwing has. When I would push the set button the set light would come on for a second then go off. The next time I would ride it might work flawlessly. I had it at the Honda shop where they cleaned and adjusted all switches. Now when I push the set button the set light comes on but the cruise doesn't activate.

Can anyone email me the SERVICE MANUAL for my 1989 Honda Goldwing?? I am having the same issues with my cruise control and I need some help. The Cruise ON light comes on but I cant set it. I also just noticed that my odometer and mileage counter is not working. It reads SPEED fine, but not mileage. This maybe the cause of the problem but I just dont know.
