Re: GL1100 No Power

I found one green wire ground behind the neck. The others all look like there in harnesses. Should I be checking using the ohms setting? I'm new when it comes to the multimeter maybe time to pull the ole test light out. Thanks again guys.

Re: GL1100 No Power

I just tested it out. The battery side is 12.78 volts check the in-line fuse 12.66 on the hot side. Isn't this the side that send power to the rest of the bike, the red and red/white wire? The starter side has no reading key on or off.

Re: GL1100 No Power

That's just it, no power for lights or anything. Does the solenoid power everything, I did the in-line 30a fuse. Shouldn't power at least be going to the rest of the bike.
