Re: Gauges & taillights not working

Thanks for the help. If it starts acting up again I'll pull the relay box and check out the terminal

Re: Gauges & taillights not working

This is the suspected ground. To keep it from rusting again should I repaint around the frame and ground screw?

Gauges & taillights not working

Last summer I started having intermittent problems with the OD indicator light going out on my 98 GL1500. Then on the last ride of the season, the low fuel light came on when tank wasn't low. Then the fuel and temp gauges quit working. I started troubleshooting when I got home and realized the taill...

Re: URGENT: Bike SUDDENLY won't start???????!!!!!!!!

Maybe the problem is your new short commute. If you're only riding 5 miles per trip, maybe the battery doesn't have time to get recharged.

Re: Electrical Connection Power Plate

I use battery tenders on all my vehicles. Will it damage the tender if the vehicle is started while the tender is connected?

GL1500 won't start till starter button is released

I saw an article about the 1500s cranking and not firing till the starter button was released but can't find it in back issues. Can someone send me the article.

Re: Cornering lights not working

The question I still need answered is if I don't have any power at the light sockets, is it most likely that both relays are bad?.

Cornering lights not working

Neither of my cornering lights are working when the signal light is on. I found a burnt bulb in one, but the other bulb is good. There is no power to the light socket. Would both the relays be bad at the same time? Is there a way to check the relays to see if they are defective before buying 2 new o...
