2004 Goldwing Key fob

Postby firespot » Sat Jun 04, 2016 12:58 pm



OK....have a 2004 Goldwing. Am trying to get the keyfob to lock and unlock the trunk. I have changed the battery in the fob and when I press the buttons, the little red light blinks, but nothing happens. Is there a fuse or a circut breaker that powers the trunk release? The bike had been sitting for a while and there were a couple of fuses I had to clean to get other systems to work, but I cannot find one for the trunk release. HELP!!!!

Have you tried to re-program the fob?

about ten times...turning the key on and off, pointing at the bike and singing kumbyia...even going so far as painting myself up and sacrificing some KFC,( did not want to use a live chicken). Nothing.

I have tried reprograming the key fob with no results. That is why I am asking which fuse powers the latch release. I want to check for a blown fuse or corroded terminals to ensure the system is getting power. The fuse box is not listed with a "trunk release" fuse.

From the look of the schematic diagram for your bike, it appears two fuses and two relays are in play:

Fuse 21, ACC
Fuse 22, Trunk Lock Control System/Audio System
Relay 12, the ACC relay
Relay 17, the Horn (call) relay

Question have you tried the horn button on the remote ? If it doesn't work either that might help isolate if it is the remote or the control bike.

Nothing works. Red light on remote lights up when button is pressed, but does not activate anything on bike. That is why I am thing power problem.

Have you checked for broken wires leading to the trunk lid, especially at the trunk lid hinge area? They are notorious for bending and breaking there, leaving the components dead. Most often, the speaker wires are found to be broken, probably they are easy to notice when the speakers don't work.
