Problem with onboard compressor

Postby k3nn3y3 » Fri May 27, 2011 2:10 pm



I have a '99 gl1500 se.
For some reason, I can no longer add or decrease the air in my rear suspension.
The display works, it shows how much air is in the shocks, but it won't let me adjust it, up or down.
It worked just fine before I replaced my battery.
Since the new battery has been installed, now I have this problem.
What could be the cause of this?

Does the compressor sound like it is operating when you push the INCREASE button? Do you hear a click when you press the DECREASE button?

No, it doesn't make a sound.

Since it is not making a sound, I'd look for a fuse or a disconnect connector in the area of where you had been working when you changed the battery. Look at the schematic on page 12-5 of the service manual. That shows the power distribution. Here is a portion of the page to get you started:

I have had the same issue with my 99. I Checked the fuses and it was fine. I went after the relay and without having a meter (on the road) I was not able to tell if it was bad.. So I took the Highbeam relay out..(both the same amps) put it in the compressor slot and it worked.. This told me I needed a Relay. new about $35.00. used $15.00

Thanks MikeB I'll check the relay, I checked the fuse, and like you said, it was fine, so I'll checked the relay. Thnx.
