radio lights and trunk lights flicker

Post by walker70 »



Hi,I have just finished putting my 86 Goldwing back together,while it was apart I checked all my wiring harnesses and even rewrapped a lot of the wires,this problem was there before I took the bike apart so when I put everything back I was hoping that I had cleared up the issue,it only flickers the radio,trunk and maybe the dash lights when I turn the blinkers or hazard flashers on,when they are off the lights do not flicker at all,can't seem to figure it out??? :D

Do they "flicker" exactly in time with the flashers?

Hi,thought about a bad ground and yes they do flicker in time with the blinkers and flashers.

This is not an issue with the lights but I thought I would ask about it,this is something that went goofy a while back,on the auto volume control for the radio there is a single wire in between the din cords and now when I hook that wire up it will cause interference with the sound and also screws up the self cancel part of the blinkers,when unhooked all goes back to normal,does anyone know what that wire goes to,thanks.

In that case check all the turn signal bulbs for the correct type and that the bulb sockets are grounded, could be corrosion in a socket.

Your AV control probably has a short in it.

Ok,thanks,I will check the sockets for the blinkers and I will replace the av control.
