Sorting electrics Fuse 10

Post by harry37 » Wed May 15, 2019 6:11 pm



Hi my 97 GL1500SE has lots of electrical add ons mainly lights like spots and ring of fire on front disc covers as well as other led lights.

These additional lights aren't my cup of tea but I dislike them even more now I've seen that they're spliced in to other wires rather than on their own fuse system.

I am spending this weekend sorting this out but can someone confirm what fuse number 10 supplies and why is it called acc? I presume this means accessories.

Can anyone confirm which fuse supplies the fader knob, channel select and mute button located on left hand side handlebar.

Thanks in advance I dread to think what horrors I'm going to find.

Ride safe
Harry

That fuse is only for the acc terminal on top of the fuse box.

Thank you for that. Does that mean it's for additional accessories like lights or usb etc?

Exactly. But if you have a LOT of accessories you may want to power them off the battery thru a relay. You can trigger the relay with Accessory terminal power. Or use multiple relays controlled by other switches for separate circuits. If the separate control switches get their power from the accessory terminals everything shuts off when you switch off the key.
