TURN SIGNAL / INTERMITTENT PERFORMANCE

Post by JStanuszek »



I have a GL1100 (1983) and am encountering a problem that is a little puzzling. There are times where my turn signals work fine when I first start out riding then freeze up, then later work fine again. Other times they do not function starting out but start functioning fine after a little while. I suspect a ground issue somewhere but am curious if anyone might have a clue as to where to begin looking first.

Thank you.

If your turn signals freeze up..(stay on)..you don't have a ground issue.You have a flasher problem.
It's a switch.Replace it.
If you mean that they go completely out..push on the hazard switch..see if it works normal..it's a separate flasher but the same grounds.
