Bad ignition switch? 92 GL1500.
 
I turned the key off on my 92 gl1500 and the lights stayed on. Start button didn't work with key off. I had to disconnect the battery to kill the power. I'm thinking bad ignition switch.
How hard is it to replace? :frown2:

It may be the #3 relay sticking.

Check the relay like Dave says. If you end up needing one I've got one available with locks & keys. PM me if interested.

Not hard really time consuming more than anything.

From ALEX BERECZKY thanks again Alex!


1) Remove the front housing (eg the Front fairing and dash)
2) Hammer a Chisel into each of the two bolts holding the ignition switch, then usal the chisal to Turn (eg Unscrew) the bolt --The bolts are the "anti-theft" type, hence this unusual method of removal.
3) Replace with new bolts... I believe they come with hex-heads, that snap off after reaching the proper torque. Myself, I'd just use normal socket head allen bolts.

In the upper right corner of the fuse box behind the saddlebag, hard to get to.

Don't see how that's possible.

Notice you pull a trailer. Any hot wires in the plug for some reason that might short to other wires???????
