GL 1500SE No Power At The Gauges

Post by stewartnorrie1 »



I have a 1996 GL1500SE with no power at the side stand light, Reverse light, oil pressure light, fuel gauge and temp gauge. There is power going in and out of the fuse panel when the key is on, there is power at the reverse switch by the handle, no power at the pig tail plug ins for the side stand etc. Does anyone have a suggestion where to look next ?

The sidestand switch switches ground, so no power there. The light is powered by fuse 11, relay 3, and fuse 8.
Do you have the wiring diagram? If not, there are good ones on this site.

I have a wiring diagram and I have power in and out at all of the fuses, I did switch the relays around, but maybe need to look at them closer ?

Make sure you check the connections in the relay panel to insure they are making good connection to the tabs on relay #3.
