Electrical Problem

Post by DJacqus »



I'm trying to find a wiring diagram for a 2009 Honda GL1800. I have a short in a wire coming from the fuse box location 31.

Don't have wiring diagram but this could be a good place to start. Pretty sure fuse 31 is to Horn / Trunck lock relay located under the seat. Someone will be along shortly to correct me if I'm wrong.

Reading through following link may help. This is for 2007 1800.

Please more info....You say "short" so you are indicating that it keeps blowing fuses????
Some people use the word "short" when they mean something isn't working with a good fuse (which is an "open" circuit). :?:

Don't have a wiring diagram/schematic. Do have a GL1800 service manual in PDF format. It is about 68mb in size so email probably would not work. Could put it to CD and snail mail it.

Thanks for the help. The fuse doesn't blow but the battery drains every two days because of the fuse 31.

I found this pic on a Google search based on the info you gave. In the bottom right corner, wire #31, 3 amp fuse goes to the coffee mug.

Coffee Mug? I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it.
I wonder what it is actually connected to in reference to the Coffee Mug?

Apologies to the OP an others for the enigma. I have to admit that when I found the schematic, it looked legit enough, and 'coffee mug(?)', I thought to be a farkle that a GW owner would be familiar with, such as the 'Knight Rider' item listed. The question lingered in my mind too, so I searched for the corresponding bike to the poster of that schematic. What I found was a very professionally farkle-laden GW! This bike is quite an interesting read. And yes, it has a 12 volt heated coffee mug!

Yellow Spot III
I received a 12 volt heated coffee cup for Christmas one year and I almost didn't add a circuit for it on the bike, but I had one fuse slot left over after drawing up a schematic and decided to use it for the cup. I'm glad I did; nothing but heated clothing beats hot coffee on a long cold ride!
...And to the OP, I'm still searching for the answer to fuse box location #31

Using manualslib.com, depending on the accessory package model id of the bike, fuse location 31 feeds:
trunk lock control system
audio system
combination meter
navigation control unit

Fuse 31 supplies always on power to the trunk latch and to some areas of the audio (keep alive). It is a R/Y colored wire. That is all I have.
