Hazard light flashing and FI light is on, fuse for FI/cruise pops

Post by flight43 » Sat Feb 02, 2019 9:03 pm



Hello biker friends, need some help with my '06 GL1800 electric.
I recently had a breakdown on a trip and it seems the battery got drained until the engine stalled, checked out the alternator and it was not charging the the battery. Tried a new batterie and a new alternator but the same problem , no charging. Checked the fuses and it showed the 10 amp fuse FI/cruise popped as soon as the cruise control switch was pressed. With proper fuse charging works fine. I replaced the alternator, fuse and after starting the engine, FI red, hazard lights flashing and engine runs normal????
Why does the hazard light flash??? Any ideas? I can't read the FI code. Before I have to spend the big bucks at Honda I would like to try a few more things myself. Thanks in advance for any suggestions! Edgar

The hazard lights are flashing your 4 turn signals?
Or are you saying the FI light is flashing?
Your wording is kinda confusing.

Hello newday777
the hazard lights are flashing and at the same time FI light is on.
I also disconnected the hazard light panel, on the left side, than the FI light starts flashing.

Thank you very much for the code link!
I’m not a electronic expert, hope I will learn work with it.
And sorry for my bad or confusing english...😉

Dont know about your F1 light but I bet the hazard switch is stuck on. I have an 06 and it sticks from to time too time and a quick jab or two or three sometimes four (Ha) un-sticks it. :roll:
