Re: Wrong Battery Boost Hook-Up, Now No NAV+

Can you pull the accessory relay out and probe its socket pins for power with the key on? Use the battery negative post for ground. You should see power on 2 of them, 1 light green wire and 1 light green/black wire. Make sure you have the correct relay, it’s the second one from the left(rider persp...

Re: Electrical question for 2009 abs comfort navi

Thanks Techdude2000. I will check that out this weekend. As I am a pharmacist, I am fortunate enough to be able to still be working so I will not be able to check it out till then but will report what I find out this weekend. Cool, my employer is closed so I have too much time on my hands. Stay safe.

Re: Wrong Battery Boost Hook-Up, Now No NAV+

@Techdude2000, I just checked the BATTERY fuse and it's good. I think this path is leading me to a trip to the stealership, where I know it's probably going to cost me a thousand dollars... Thank you very much for your suggestions though. I appreciate it, as well as the suggestions from everyone el...

Re: Electrical question for 2009 abs comfort navi

I don’t post much but always appreciate everyone’s help when I do. Recently my flashers and dash indicator lights are not flashing when I use the key fob to lock/unlock my bike. All these lights do work when I turn on my signals so I know the lights are functional and not a fuse for the light eithe...

Re: Wrong Battery Boost Hook-Up, Now No NAV+

Yet you recommend not following the proper troubleshooting procedure. By the way, i was working on aerospace electronics since the vacuum tube days, but I'm not trying to start a pissing contest. You can take all the offense you like, its no sweat on my brow, but if you are so knowledgeable and exp...

Re: Wrong Battery Boost Hook-Up, Now No NAV+

Moron in the hayfield refers to just checking components without knowing why or where in the line of succession they are. This electrical system is quite complex and branches into many sub sections inter dependent on each other. Without the proper troubleshooting technique you are basically hoping ...

Look, stop hunting for the invisible man. Get the shop manual and follow the troubleshooting diagnostic tree. This is way too complicated for the moron in the hayfield method. They might even have it on goldwing docs! You have at least 3 computers and two relay banks, fuse links, routing switches, ...

The LCD screen initially goes bright for just a second, then does very dim grey with some horizontal lines through it. And remember, I DID replace the NAV module/computer to see it...

Ok, that relay and the associated fuse supply power to the audio unit, the turn signals, the Nav unit, etc... I believe this circuit is definitely suspect.

Re: Wrong Battery Boost Hook-Up, Now No NAV+

Sounds like you blew up the Accessory relay. Find it in the bank under the seat and swap it with another one like it in the bank. Have you checked the fuse labeled “CB/Radio/Flasher”, it powers this relay and this relay powers lots of stuff, including the Nav unit. Does the radio turn on and have an...

Re: ADG

Worst case, it could shear the spine drive of the alternator or drop a piece of its clip into the oil pump drive chain and stop all pressurized lube to the running engine. Both are rare, but have happened in the past. :shock:

Re: 2003 Frame defect

These small tube cracks are not part of any recall and Honda won’t do anything about them. Best thing to do is swap the frame with a 2005 or newer frame that was strengthened in these areas.

Re: 2003 complete restauration

The recall for the frame issues never included these small tube fractures, only the lower crossmember welds and joints. Honda won’t do anything about them, hitch or no hitch. Good luck with your rebuild. Yep, the weld failed, and you decide to change frames(?) Damn.. why not simply re-weld the brok...

Re: GL1800 Start Issue

Ok, since you are seeing the FI light coming on for a second or two, then the bank angle sensor is OK and the ECM is getting power for its power on test. You need to take a voltmeter and check the fuel pump connector for power while you see the FI light turned on. If you find battery power at it for...

Re: GL1800 Start Issue

I do not see an FI on my screen but I do not hear the fuel pump. The FI light is at the bottom of the speedometer gauge. If you don’t see it come on, then there’s an issue with the FI system and that will keep the pump from running. Have you checked for any blown fuses? Have you pulled the seat off...

Hi 2003cobra. This is a new to me 1800. There is a recall for that problem. 2001-2004 are included in this recall.

Re: Starter Problem

Finally I took out the starter and the brushes were slightly used but with a lot of rust, I think because of the humidity of my zone (and 6 months without almost using her). I went to a dealer Honda and I've bought all the parts new. During weekend I'll complete the job. Thank you all, you were ver...

Thank you! I think it could be the brushes, I'll know soon. Just a quick note. When you go to reinstall the starter, DON’T pull it into the engine using the bolts! Use only your hands to turn it until the reverse idler gear and the starter clutch gears engage properly. Using the bolts can cause you...
