A BIG Thank you TechDude! The cancel unit was bad. Replaced it after do the troubleshooting steps. They work like new. I appreciate the help very much.
You’re welcome. Glad you got them fixed, sorry it turned out to be the most expensive part of the lighting system.

Re: Starter Problem

Were at the battery post. I'll try to check the cable nuts on the relays. Ok, before you wrestle the saddlebag loose, check the voltage on the fuse. If you don’t read power on the RVS A fuse, then do the same test on the RVS B fuse. Keep in mind the power should be on them only while the key is on ...

Re: Starter Problem

To measure the voltage at the starter I need to reach the starter, so I have to remove the tank to do that or I'm wrong... Another thing that casually happen when I was pushing the starter button was that at the same time I've turned a little the throttle and the starter spin very little but not en...

Re: Starter Problem

I gave a slow charge and test the battery, 12,6 volts, I think the battery it's ok. I put on the bike and continue the problem, when I press the start button I only hear two clicks (I think from the relays) under the seat and the starter doesn't spin. Two days ago when the starter problem began, I ...

It looks like everything is on. I can change channels on both cb and radio. My buddy can hear me key the cb but can't hear me talk. No sound out of speakers for radio.
Ok, try removing two fuses, wait 10 minutes then reinsert them, Battery Fuse and ACC. Fuse. This will reset the system.

I had to jumpstart my 08 1800 last week while on vacation. Started fine but now I get no sound out of speakers. Any help is appreciated.
Anything else not working, like the trunk release or the clock resetting it’s time after you cycle the key off and back on?

Re: Turn Signals Only Not working - 2002 GL1800

Thoughts; so if its the cancel unit, if I pull the White/Black wire to the cancel unit should the turn signals work then and just not have the function of the cancelling? Also what is the likelihood of this part being bad? CIRCUIT ASSY. (TURN SIGNAL RELAY) 37107-MCA-671 It appears to be a circuit b...

Is there any way to speed up reverse? It is painfully slow. I Am a first time owner of a 2007 GL1800 Trike.
Only thing you can do is rev the engine a little to make the alternator keep the voltage up while backing up. It won’t go much faster, but it also won’t hurt.

Re: Turn Signals Only Not working - 2002 GL1800

This is the position light relay and has nothing to do with the turn signals flashing or not. Sounds like your cancel unit has died or has a bad connection on its connector at the top of the steering stem. If you search for “dead turn signals” at Gl1800riders.com, there’s lots of threads about the p...

Re: Help broken down at Gran Coulee Dam Washington

Sorry, I’m late to this. Your mechanic might not be the cause. If you tried to use reverse even once while the welded relay had the starter spinning, it would have jammed and broke the idler gear. This is why I have warned folks not to try reverse if their starter won’t stop spinning. Greg will get...

Re: GL1800 cooling fan wiring modification kit

Yea, it’s not the belly pan, there’s thousands of 1800s on the road with no heating problems. Since everything replaceable has been replaced, there’s something else causing this. Air flow restriction through the radiators or plugged passages in the radiators or heads would be my guess. A normally ru...

Ok, do you have a copy of the Honda Service manual? I’ve got to get to bed, got a busy day tomorrow. If you have the service manual, go to the suspension section and perform the motor test. I’ll catch up tomorrow.

It’s not the starter button switch or the kill switch, if they are bad the engine wouldn’t crank at all.
