2X now I have not been able to turn off the power on my my 1500, ACC seems to stay on, radio playing, clock on, Volt Meter working, and not sure 2 whal else is still on.
Seems it does not turn off past the ACC maybe?

What is odd is that I play with the switch, turn it on off a lot, and tyhis time popped off the cover and tapped it a few times down below to jar it some.
Nothing works, but then it just shuts off on it's own when it feels like it LOL

First time tyhere was a really good song on the radio, it would not shut off, then soon as that song ended it shut off LOL

This time I guess I messed with it for about 10minutes or so, gave up went walking over to the shop to get a screwdriver to disconnect the battery and it just shut off.

Any Ideas? While I was messing with it this time I shot a little WD40 in the key whole, I doubt that does anything and the key switch itself is working fine, no sticking or binding or anything.

After it shut off this time, I turned it on and off about 10-15 times and it turned off fine every time.

Maybe the 1500 just likes good music? The 2 best songs of the day were playing today when it would not shut off, the second song just ended when it shut off on it's own LOL
Could I have a Gremlin with good taste in music?

Oh, I do have a Gremlin Bell :smiler:

Naw, this bell is nearly new, not had time to fill up yet.

I think this Gremlin is just attracted to good music like Johnny Cash, not to bells.

instead of WD40 get an electric parts cleanner, spray some and move the key to all sides, use more fluid and do the same 3 or 4 times, then blow some air inside to dry the fluid once the accesories are turning off just add silicone based lube and you're ok to go.

another thing i would try is to tap on the accesories relay it has probably stuck closed.

I think William nailed it.

AH HA!
That was something I meant to ask about but forgot.
Is there a relay or such that would cause this type problem? I think I did hear a click or something the first time it happened, the click was right when it shut off finally.

Where might I find such a relay located on the 88 1500?

I don't have a proper manual on an 88 model so I can't say where it is. Probably in the fuse box is the best I can do.

OK, now that I kinda know what to look for I'll look in the manuals for a relay.
I was not at the bike when it shut off yesterday, but was told now that it did go click then also when it shut off.
