Location of rear turn signal wires?

Postby bill603 » Tue May 10, 2016 10:32 pm



Can any one tell me where to find the wires to the saddle bag mounted turn signals? I have an '08 GL1800. My reference is an '02 shop manual. If I'm deciphering correctly it goes thru a 22 pin gray plug then a 14 pin white plug then splits to the needed lamp. Orange is left turn, light green is right.

Can't find the plugs. Any help greatly appreciated.

I can't vouch for a 1800, but on all of the 1500s that I have had the wiring harness is under the seat. Hope this helps.Ride safe.

On my 2012+ 1800's the rear lights can be accessed via a large multipoint plug in a boot under the seat, just to the rear of the relay box.
If you check it out you'll find a multipin socket with a blank plug in it and that contains all the wires you'll need.
Hope this helps.

Ian Thanks for the heads up, I went back looking for the plug you mentioned. What appeared to be gray in last nights fading light was actually an off white. Also found a flaw in my trouble shooting, see below. All needed wires located.

<NOTE> Don't trouble shoot the turn signals using the 4 way flashers. It appears the lights are powered and the ground is interrupted in 4-way flasher mode. The ground is constant and the power is interrupted in turn signal mode. If some one has a copy of the 4-way flasher circuit I would sure like to see it. My '03 Shop Manual doesn't show it.
