Neutral light off when key is on.

Post by s.rhett61@yahoo.com » Sun Apr 07, 2019 5:14 pm



I have a '96 GL 1500 Aspencade trike and the neutral light won't come on after I turn the key but all other dash lights come on. I know the bike is in neutral 'cause I can roll it, but it fails to start. Is the problem in the reverse handle as I suspect or maybe something else entirely? I have jiggled and wiggled the handle, checked all fuses, and relays. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

The neutral light gets the +12v from the reverse lever switch, and the ground from gear position sensor via the reverse diode assy as shown below.

So you should check not only the +12v but also the ground circuit of the light.
