(1988 – 1990 Gold Wing, 1990 SE, 1991 – 2000 Aspencade and SE)

Sometimes it cam be difficult to see the “tree” for the “forest”......!!

The following items should be checked first on the GL1500:

(1993 – 2000)

1. Battery voltage. (Should have at least 12.5 – 12.7 volts at rest)

2. Cable connections. (Should be clean and tight)

3. # 11 Ignition/cruise “15-amp” fuse.

a. Power to the # 6 ignition/cruise relay

b. Power to the kill switch

c. Power to the starter/reverse switch.

Note: If the cruise “on” light illuminates, items in # 3 are good.

4. # 9 Start/reverse “5-amp” fuse.

a. Power to the reverse lever switch.

Note: If the headlights illuminate, items in # 4 are good.

5. 30-amp fuse.

a. Power to the ignition switch.
