Need electrical help on 2014 gl1800

Post by survior »

Hello everyone, I just had A "Motor Trike unit installed on my new Goldwing, Trike rides great but, I have no power to my CB, Radio, and self cancelating turn signals do not turn off. Also , the only information in the display panel is "clock" trip meter" and speedometer. The guys who worked on it do not have a clue what is wrong, and, I am afraid to have them work on it any further as I am sure they will frie the electrical system. I told them this was a total plug and play bike, and if anything unusual came up to let me know. They delivered it buttoned up and then told me the news. Any comments/ suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Survior

It was working when you brought it in, let them find and fix the problem. If they brake it, they should pay for it.

While I agree with Flash 2002, I realize your fears also. Perhaps you can work a deal with the trike guys that you take it to a Honda Dealer and they pay for the fix. I suspect something is hooked up wrong, or just not hooked up.

I had a VW Golf that a local mechanic admitted freely was running better before he worked on it than when he finished. He suggested I take it to the dealer and he would pay. It seems that he forced a plug in upside down the wrong wires were mating up. The dealer tech found it in about 5 minutes, cleaned the plug, straightened the prongs and put it together correctly. He then informed me about the water pump going bad. I had them replace the pump and they charged me for that only. I told the local Mechanic what happened and he still felt bad and offered to pay for the water pump replacement. I refused to allow him.
