Remote keyfob?

Post by two_wheeled »



I have a 2002 GL1800. I've only had this bike for a year. I have two keys--one original Honda key and one Ilco copy.

Someone told me recently that all GL1800s are also supposed to have a remote keyfob that will lock/unlock the bags. Is that true? Is it possible for me to get one this late in the game?

They came with 1 FOB & 2 keys. after some of the FOBS would stop working due to the wires run along the hinge for the trunk hinges and the wires would break,. I have the FOB but as many times as I have tried to program it it does not work, I guess the wire is broke and I do not wish to take it all apart. it's not a big deal to lock & unlock with the key.

The FOB is nice to have but after awhile some of them would not work due to Honda routing the wires by the trunk hinge and the wires would break after several years. My other 2 1800 never had an issue but the 06 I have now the remote does not work. I changed the battery ibn it but I guess the wires are broke and it's not that important to me to fix that/.
