Mine may be different from the 1996 GL 1500 SE.
1989 GL 1500 Electrical Troubleshooting Manual:
1. Accessory Fuse, #10 supplies powerfor the Hazard Lights. It is a 10 amp fuse.
2. My manual shows three 5 amp fuses:
Fuse # 1, Accessory Terminal, is for the optional added accessory terminals;
Fuse #9, Back Up,is hot at all times and supplies power for the memories, clock, radio, etc.;
Fuse #12, Tail/Ign.,supplies power to Bank Angle Sensor, Ign. relay coil, tail (main) relay coil.
I suggest that you check all your fuses and make sure the correct size fuse is in each slot.A couple of the fuses could have been switched over the years and maybe you now have an over fused circuit with a 10 amp fuse and an under fused Hazard circuit.
You could have a bad Hazard relay. The Hazard Relay and the Turn Signal Relays are both located under the trunk.
Looking at my schematics, I don't see anyway the Hazard lights can cause one of my 5 amp fuses to blow. Otherwise let us knowthe number of the5 amp fuse that is blowing.
Maybe someone with a 1996 will be able to give you better troubleshooting ideas.
