Reverse light flashing no cruise control

2003 GL1800 no new work has been done. Converted to trike in 2004.
Cruse control would not engage. then noticed the reverse light was flashing. no cruse and no reverse, but otherwise runs great. any ideas???

Looks like the only "common" component is the CRUISE REVERSE CONTROL MODULE, but is there any other item in common? Are the fuses and/or relays used for seperate systems? So it seems like each fuse and/or relay is not common to both systems. Or is my logic wrong?

From Daves earlier post.

2. Reverse Indicator Operation Inspection
Check that the reverse indicator is blinking.
Does the reverse indicator blink?
NO - GO TO STEP 10.
YES - GO TO STEP 3.
3. Reverse Shift Relay Inspection
Check the reverse shift relay system (page 19-34).
Does the reverse shift relay system test OK?
NO - Faulty reverse shift relay(s) or related circuit.
YES - GO TO STEP 4.
4. Reverse Shift Relay 1 Coil Control Line Voltage Inspection
Check the reverse shift relay 1 coil (No. 40) circuit at the cruise/reverse control module (page 19-39).
Is battery voltage present when tested as described?
NO - Open circuit in the Blue/black wire between the control module and reverse shift relay 1.
YES - GO TO STEP 5.
5. Reverse Shift Relay 2 Coil Voltage/Control Line Continuity Inspection
Check the reverse shift relay 2 coil (No. 34) circuit at the cruise/reverse control module (page 19-39).
Is continuity correct?
NO - Open circuit in the Blue/white wire between the control module and reverse shift relay 2.

Open circuit in the Red wire between reverse shift relays 1 and 2.
YES - GO TO STEP 6.
6. Reverse Shift Relay 3 Coil Control Line Continuity Inspection

Check the reverse shift relay 3 coil (No. 27) circuit at the cruise/reverse control module (page 19-39).
Is continuity correct?
NO - Short circuit in the Yellow/white wire between the control module and reverse shift relay 3.
YES - GO TO STEP 7.
7. Reverse Actuator/Shift Relay Ground Line Continuity Inspection
Check the reverse shift motor (+) (No. 1) circuit at the cruise/reverse control module (page 19-39).
Is there continuity?
NO - Open circuit in the Pink wire between the control module and reverse shift relay 3.
YES - GO TO STEP 8.
8. Reverse Shift Motor Ground Line Continuity Inspection
Check the reverse shift motor (No. 8) circuit at the cruise/reverse control module (page 19-39).
Is there continuity?
NO - Open circuit in the Green wire between the control module and ground terminal.
YES - GO TO STEP 9.
9. Reverse Shift Actuator Motor Inspection
Check the reverse shift actuator (page 19-36)
Does the reverse shift actuator test OK?
NO - Faulty reverse shift actuator motor and related circuits.
YES - Faulty cruise/reverse control module.
10. Gear Position Neutral Line Continuity Inspection
Check the gear position (neutral) sensor (No. 47) circuit at the cruise/reverse control module
(page 19-39).
Is there continuity?
NO- Open circuit in the Light green/red wire between the control module and gear position sensor.
YES - GO TO STEP 11.
11. Reverse Shift Switch Line Voltage Inspection
Check the reverse shift switch (No. 23) circuit at the cruise/reverse control module (page 19-39).
Is battery voltage present?

NO - Open circuit in the Yellow/white wire between the control module and right handlebar switch. or Faulty right handlebar switch (reverse shift switch).
YES - GO TO STEP 12.
12. Cruise/Reverse Control Module Ground Line Continuity Inspection
Check the ground (No. 20 and 52) circuits at the cruise/reverse control module (page 19-39).
Is there continuity?

NO - Open circuit in the Green wire between the control module and ground terminal.
YES - Faulty cruise/reverse control module.

Flashing Reverse and no cruise control

Thanks for the response. Looking for the answer to this >>Looks like the only "common" component is the CRUISE REVERSE CONTROL MODULE, but is there any other item in common? Are the fuses and/or relays used for seperate systems? So it seems like each fuse and/or relay is not common to both systems. Or is my logic wrong?

FYI, posting a new thread will not get you any different answers. You have to go through the troubleshooting procedures to find the problem, we are not psychic, maybe psycho.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

Thanks for your response Dave. This post was not asking for a solution to the problem. I was asking if the 2 systems, Cruise and Reverse had any other components in common besides the module. Thanks, Ron

Not much. Remove the right engine cover, where you check the oil, there is a small switch screwed into the engine case right above the dipstick with a rubber boot over it. Check that the nut on the wire connector is tight.

Ron,
It is not fair to assume because you lost reverse and cruise there is a common issue. It is pretty normal when you have an issue with one system (say reverse) the cruise will default to off. Fix reverse and cruise will work as it should.

That is my thought on the reverse switch, it does input to the control unit and would probably cause neither to work and a friend of mine had that happen.
