1500 body swap/ electrical issues

Guys - My 1994 was hit by a car and so I swapped out the body off another 1500. Saddlebags, trunk, fairing etc.


Got it all back together, but have a strange electrical fault:


Upon turning the bike on:


  1. a relay or two can be heard clicking on and the LCD, cruise control, radio, CB and fuel gauge light up.
  2. but that is all - no trunk lights, headlight, marker lights, parking lights, neutral light or starter motor?!?
I've missed something, but cannot think of what exactly.


Where should I start guys?


Cheers!

Do you mean the OD light is on at all other gears?

A White 22-pin connector under the seat provides "power" and "ground" for all lights on the rear of the bike.

Check the "green" ground wire for continuity to ground....?? It should have continuity to ground.

If not, check the ground point at the radiator.....!!



A Red 22-pin connector under the seat has an affect on starting.

You probably had both disconnected during the swap process.

See attached files regarding functions they control......

Note: I could also send you the Head Light Circuit if needed....!

Yes sir - Whether clicking up or down - the OD on the dash remains on.


(Oops - I'll throw in the Reverse handle for correct testing I guess)

Threw the Reverse handle back in...
Bike started no troubles. Fuel pump ran it for 10 minutes.



Current troubles.
No power to fuses 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8


So, no power to Tach, Speedo, Fuel gauge, Temp sensor, dash back lighting (just LCD), no horn, indicators or parking lights. No headlights or marker lights. Radio and CB are functioning.


We checked continuity on the Green under the trunk - good continuity.
We checked the red 22 pin - seems undamaged.
Cannot locate the white 22 pin...

You need to check the 55-amp Dog Bone fuse........!!!!!

GL1500 Main Fuse B “Dog Bone” 55-amp (white wire). (1993 – 2000)

1. It is located to the right of the battery and gets voltage directly from the positive
battery terminal.

2. It provides voltage (white wire) to the following:

a. The # 2 Horn/Turn (15-amp) Fuse (Powers the # 1 Horn/Turn Relay)

b. The # 3 Stop (15-amp) Fuse (Powers the # 2 Stop Lights Relay)

c. The # 5 Headlight (15-amp) Fuse (Powers the # 4 High and # 8 Low
Beam Relays)

d. The # 6 Air Pump (10-amp) Fuse (Powers the # 5 Air Pump Relay)

e. The # 8 Tail Illumination (15-amp) Fuse (Powers the # 3 Tail Main Relay)


Note: The # 7 fuse only has power when the ignition switch is in the "PARK" position......!!!!!

This should help...........!!!!!!!!
