03 GL1800A Won't start issue...

Post by Redwing52 »

OK Guys,
Someone from another site has an issue. It is an 03 GL1800A and it will not start. That is unless you jump from the FI relay to the ECM. I'm just wondering if anybody has run in to this issue before or has any info on where the splice might be located, The GL1500 manuals had splice locations but I can not find such a thing for a GL1800. Hate to see him just hack in to his harness. I have attached a schematic indicating where the power is lost. Any help appreciated.

Well if power is lost on that black/yellow wire in between the relay and the ECM, you have two options:

1. Hack into the harness and find the break, then fix it
2. Run a new wire and abandon the old one.

I know which choice I would go with...
