Turn signal relay

Post by krazyman63 »



anyone know where I can find the relay for the turn signals when we turn them on while idle they shut off after 5 to 6 flashes. or is this in the switch itself on the handlebar? thanks,

You didn't say what you are working on, but if you mean a GL1500, the turn signal relay and the hazard flasher relays are both at the back of the bike under the trunk.

Your right, if your just sitting there they shouldn't shut off. I really love the auto cancel turn signals but they turn off quick sometimes. Then again when I ride another bike I ride around with the turn signal on for miles :)

Gotta be careful doing that, you'll run out of Blinker Fluid! :lol:

I will keep an eye on that too along with the windshield washer fluid.

BTW - the auto-cancel unit is in the steering stem, has a mechanism to detect the front wheel being straight ahead while rolling.... :)

I must be low on blinker fluid for the left turn signal, mine always turns off while waiting through two rounds of the light :lol: . Right turn signal works fine. :D
