Diagnostic - FI Fault Indicator lamp gl1800

Hi i have a 2004 1800 Honda Goldwing which is now Triked But the F1 Light comes on after i have done between 2 to 9 miles and i would like to know where the OBD is situated? is it under the Seat or maybe under the Left hand Pocket? the rev counter at times on tick over seems to go up and down Not a Big deal But i know it shouldn't, when the F1 light comes on it stays on and it does Not flash Can anyone Help me Please Many Thanks Dusty

Since it is a trike you need to find the side stand switch connector, disconnect whatever jumper they have between the green/whit & green wires. Then start the engine and watch for the FI light to blink codes. Long blinks =10, short blinks =1 as in 1 long and 2 short = 12. I have a feeling you will have a 25 or 26.

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

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

It would be very advisable for you to install a switch somewhere, and wire it to the Sidestand switch. Label the switch so you , and future owners will know what it is.

that way, you can easily test for the Fault Indicator codes at anytime, without have to jack up the trike to access that connector.
