Those are both controlled by the same fuse, fuse 10 (Accessory fuse).

Check that when the key is in ACC, you have +12 volts on BOTH sides of that fuse.

Also, check the Accessory terminals and see if you have 12 volts across them when the key is in ACC. If you don't have power there, check fuse 1.

If you DO have power on the accessory terminal, but the radio and compressor are not working, then the problem is almost certainly fuse 10.

If you do NOT have power on the accessory terminal, and the radio and compressor are not working, and fuses 1 and 10 are OK, the problem is likely the ignition switch.

Ok I have been working on it this morning and I remember the guy said he replaced the alternator and Battery last year so took battery out and there was a ground wire that was not hooked to the battery but there was a red hooked to pos. of Batt. so I hooked up the green and the radio works now, but my guess is that he bypassed the radio, so the compressor still does not work. I will try those test you suggested later today WingAdmin . another thing the LCD screen does not light up or show anything it is just Blank. Anymore help will be appreciated, thank you

So I went back and rechecked the fuses they are good I used my meter instead of sight while plugged in and they are all good. then I checked all my Relays they were all good except #5 so I replaced it with the High beam relay tried the pump switch and still nothing so I unhooked the plug to switch checked voltage on all plug outlets and only one had 12 volts so I jumped them and I could here the relay to kick in on one terminal and on one of the others I got the pump to run. so does that tell me that the switch is bad or the ignition switch is bad?? or is there other test I need to do first????? please help someone my wife and I would like to take a rode trip this year

Here is what you said on the test

If you do NOT have power on the accessory terminal, and the radio and compressor are not working, and fuses 1 and 10 are OK, the problem is likely the ignition switch..
But this is what I have---
I have power on the accessory terminal, and the radio and compressor are not working, and fuses 1 and 10 are OK, so then what would be the problem

When you are trying the compressor, are you trying it with the ignition in Park mode (all the way to the left, with the steering locked)?

Also, do you have a CB? If so, does it function?

Sorry I was out of town
Yes I have a cb and it does not work either. I have 12V on both sides of fuses except the 7 th fuse down it is a 10 amp fuse and the fuse is good but no voltage. Also I can not get my key to go in to park or lock- it stops at off,
What next

Fuse 7 is the park fuse, it will not have power unless the bike is in park mode.

Turn the steering all the way to the left, push the key downward, and then rotate left into the park position. You might need to jiggle the steering a little bit to get it to go in. Then try it again.

Ok I was able to get it into park, I now have 12v on that fuse but the compressor switches increase and decrease does nothing- but the compressor runs if I push the outlet switch, also the display does not show anything, any ideas

Try holding "P Check" while pressing increase or decrease

While in park when I pressed the increase I also pressed one of the switches to the left then I tried the other and nothing. What do u mean about holding park?

the "P" means pressure. Hold in the P button and press the increase to run compressor and indicate increase in air pressure in rear shock. :D :D

Ok if I push the p switch and increase or decrease nothing happens, if I push just outlet the compressor will run but when I then push increase or decrease nothing happens.
and nothing shows up on my display screen

I have been searching my shop manual for my 99se and I am only taking a stab in the dark. But check fuse #10. It controls --air pump relay,cb radio,stereo/cassette deck,hazard lights,instrument panel indicator illumination and wheel speed sensor. This is a 10amp fuse.?? :D :D

I have checked it is good and I have 12 v on both sides. And the relay is good as well. :cry:

How comfortable are you with pulling more apart? I think the next step is to check whether or not there is voltage at the radio connector.

One more thing to try before yall start to get complicated. I see you have the outlet working now while in park. Are you trying the increase/decrease while in park or with the ignition on? My '96 will only pump the shock when the key is in the "on" position, not in "park"

I tried it on every click of the IGN. switch and it only will run in park and only the outlet switch.
also with the key in the start position the only lights on the dash that come on are the green light to the far left then the kickstand light and the oil light, and kind of a back lit light on the display but nothing on the display

Doesn't make much sense - what does "When display. Quit." mean? Was he trying to say the display quit working when he started it with the quick charger?

If so, it's entirely possible a voltage surge killed circuitry either in the display itself, or in the display-related circuitry in the radio.

If the LCD is not showing anything at all (i.e. no pressure for the suspension), it's possible the LCD circuitry is gone. You might be able to find a display unit with a failed LCD panel for fairly cheap (or free!), and try transplanting the circuit board from it into yours, and see if that fixes the problem.

Re: No radio or compressor

Don't know if this helps, but my '97 has the well documented LCD / Humidity problem, where the LCD displays nothing until it warms up and drys out. While it's in that 'blank mode', the compressor is dysfunctional, indicating that the LCD, and compressor are somehow tied together, more than just a display of pressure. As soon as the LCD kicks in, the compressor is back to normal. I don't know if you have tried drying out your LCD area with a hair dryer, as strange as that might sound, but it's worth a try. If the LCD was toasted by the jump start of the PO, then you may be out of luck until the LCD is replaced and functional. Also, with no LCD display, it's difficult to tell where your radio settings are at. There are the "cassette/radio", "earphone/speaker", and CB setting (if you have one) that can all cut the radio function out. Without the LCD to tell you where they are set, it's a crap shoot.
