GL1800 handgrip heaters

Postby snjmason » Sat Mar 07, 2015 8:05 am



A little while ago, my 2007 1800, hand grip heater became intermittent, and now does not work at all. Anyone ran into this before? Easy to troubleshoot and/or fix?

If you could send me a private message with your personal email, I can forward you 2 pages from the Service Manual that tell you what you need to do. I tried sending on this message and it would not accept the attachments. Your choice.

I'll bet you checked the fuses so I won't say - check your fuses 1st. Its been an issue for the 1800 riders to damage the left grip heat element as we commonly pull back hard on it to use the center stand - avoid that as much as possible (stock heated grips are pricey). Make sure you haven't unplugged your seat heater while servicing things, without the seat heater plug being attached the circuit for the grips fails. All our electronics are basically computer driven and if there is a low voltage supply the ECU and such get stupid (the radio most often looses its mind), so check you battery voltage and connections (charge it if needed following our battery killing winter all the computer junk boots up before we start the engine and then the alternator is delayed another 10 seconds or so). Those are the simple things I'd check. You already have another member offering to send the troubleshooting info so I'll not take more of your time. Let us know how things turn out.

handles are connected in series, the connectors are under the right glove, difficult access, the first breaks down the left handle from making motorcycle
