Unhappy Multiple Issues . Where to start?

I went for a weekend ride IL to Nebraska and our 02 Goldwing Trike Cobra CS. I fueled up and noticed the instrument panel gauges didn't come back on right away. We took off each time mostly during the day the gauges would start working before we pulled out of gas station. Now last night heading back home after a fill up and found out we have no tail lights or dash lights and gauges didn't work. Turned on the flashers and checked the brake lights they all work. We traveled about a mile and the gauges started working but also have an FI fault light. I really don't know where to start. I searched the forum for the FI error and found a great thread from AZgl1800 back in 2018. I dont have a side stand it was removed during the trike conversion. Also the bike would stay running but the rpm would drop all down to 1-2 hundred almost stall out. Thanks RT. I also posted this in the Trike section as well.

There has been a few who had similar issues. The fairing must be removed to find a "gang" of ground wires. There is a bad connection somewhere in the gang. There is a thread with pictures if you can search and find it.

EDIT: Found the thread. Read below.

Honda hasn't moved forward. That similar "ground connector" on the GL1500's can be accessed without removing the fairing.....!!

Okay final update unless there is a 2nd 3rd or 4th opinion. I pulled the relay in 2nd row #3 marked tail light with the original relay in no dash lights speedo tach or fuel gauge I replaced with a new one and everything came on and started working. I found a video on checking relay. Apply power to relay then measure the resistance across the open pins this relay had a 21ohm all other I checked where 0 to 3. I hope this solves the issue. Add this to the knowledge database for noobs.
