2004 GL 1800A reverse not working.

Postby vent12 » Sun Aug 26, 2012 8:05 pm



Jumped on my Gl1800 went to back out of drive and will not work. I push in the button and the light goes on and the unit shifts in and it will not rock either way but when you push in the button it goes no where. Push button again and light goes off and bike will move either way ?????????????? Please help.

Will the bike start when the reverse button is NOT pushed in? First thing came to mind for me was a low battery.

I take it that you have the engine running when you engage the reverse if not there may not be enough power in the battery to reverse your bike. Also do the usual things of checking the cutout is not switch over and the side stand is up. If these are all done it does sounds more like a connection problem at the bar ends seeing as it engages etc. Spray the switches with an electronic spray to get rid of the crap that gathers in the casing and then give it a go.

Did you have the sidestand down? It won't move if it's down.
