Default fuses blowing gl1200

Hey guys, been riding the wing around town here and there for about a week now and all of a suddenly the accessory and horn and turn signal fuses blow at the same time. I figure theres a short somewhere. Any clues on where to start looking?

Thanks, Mike

Strange that three fuses would all go out at the same time. Could you have possibly had a blown accessory and horn fuse for a while and not noticed until the turn signals stopped working? Only thing I can suggest is to disconnect everything, replace fuse, then reconnect one at a time until it blows again, that will at least identify which item is causing the problem.

The key is the acc. fuse. What has been added to the bike and how do the aftermarket pieces relate to the quality pieces and their circuits?

ie: Aftermarkt cruise control will hook into the brake light circuit, as will a wig-wag or BL flasher.

Its only fuses the horn and signals are one fuse and i noticed that they blew last night replaced and rode it to work and within the 3 mile ride they blew. The only add ons are rear running lights and went threw all those wires the other day since a couple were hanging down but they all looked fine, wires and connections and I electrical taped all connection. And they only blow while riding, after changing the 2 fuses last night i ran it for about 20min and they were fine. Defiantly a weird thing

Fuse block on '87 is different than yours, and Honda's wiring diagram for the '84I doesn't show a fuse for the turn signal or horn. But...on the '87 brake light horn and turn signal are all on the same fuse.

All that aside, I still say look to anything that has been added by ANYBODY other than a Honda factory worker. There can be corroded OEM pieces blowing fuses, etc. but you say the accessory fuse is blowing.

yah the acc. Fuse and the turn/horn fuse both blow. Ill just have to follow the all the add on wires first and check them out then I guess I'll move onto the turn signals and horn wires

check the wires that run down the left fender to the saddlebags,they have a problem with getting loose and rubbing on the tire,often creating a short

Ok, so I narrowed it down. The horn, turn and brake 15a blows when I hit the brake, F&R. So then I took out the rear light and checked the bulbs and wires all look good, btw I tried it with them out and blew again. So then there's some acc. Lighting that does braking too so I took out the acc. Fuse so those lights were out, and the rear lights are still out. Put another fuse in tried it again and pop. At that point had enough for the night. Does anyone have any ideas where to go next?

Does the bike have an aftermarket cruise control on it, or any evidence it ever did?

Check your ground wires had a similar problem years ago a ground wire was broken couldn't see it inside the harness but I kept blowing fuses took awhile to trace down and a stock CB750 harness is simple compared to a Wing
