1990 GL1500-Bike Losses All Power When Turn Signals Activated
I have developed a problem recently with my bike shutting down, as if you turned the key off, when I activate the turn signals. It doesn't happen all the time but when it does, everything goes dead, no lights, no horn, no 4 way flashers, and it won't restart. It doesn't matter if the bike was running or just turned on, or if I'm driving down the highway. When I wait a couple minutes, the bike powers back up and starts back up like nothing has happened. I've tried a lot of different things to try and find the problem, but I'm running out of ideas. I've checked all the fuses and looked at all the relays, shook the hell out of the wires, but no luck. The thing that puzzles me, is after it all shuts down, it'll come back up in a couple of minutes. I have replaced the battery and had the charging system checked at a dealership and they said it is fine.
Any ideas........I'm stumped. Don't know what to do or what to check next.
