2001 trunk lights

Postby csw4480 » Sat Apr 05, 2014 11:41 am



just purchased 2001 GL1800 are the trunk lights supposed to work as brake lights. I know the newer models do. Only saddle bag lights work as brake.

I have a 2002 and its brakelights (unmodified) are top and bottom (trunk and saddlebags). Turn signals are only the amber on the saddle bags. I'd check the light bulbs they are common two filiment bulbs you can get at auto parts shops, just very short wires on them. There are modifications that add turn signals to the trunk I understand so I'd look for modifications and compare with what your turnsignals use before digging into more than light bulbs.

Thanks, I already checked the bulbs. I checked and have no voltage to bulb when brakes applied. Will have to go into wire harness and look for problem.
