O.K. here's the deal: I have a 1998 GL1500 SE with some electrical issues, the bike starts and runs decent, but I have no dash lights, fuel gauge, temp. gauge. The reverse light does not light up and sometimes doesn't work at all. I have a manual, test light and multimeter. PLEASE HELP..... Thanks, Lon

All fuses are good, although I have no power on Fuse #7, I swapped relay #3 and nothing changed. The bike starts and runs. It does seem to be running hot, the fans are cycling. but the temp gauge is inop. so its hard to tell. Thanks...

You only have power on fuse #7 when the switch is in the park position, nothing to worry about there. If fuse #8 is good pull #3 relay and check for power to 1 terminal all the time, 2 terminals when the ignition is on. 1 terminal should be grounded and the other goes to the lights and gauges etc, (will also show continuity to ground).

Hi dave,



Beat me to the post. I will add, if you have no power in the conditions Dave described, I would pull the fuse/relay box to see the condition of the connections at the back of the box.

Ditto that, I just today worked on Aspectone's bike and that seemed to be the problem with the brake light relay but once I got the fuse box out and the back cover off it started working and could not make it quit.

I have a new issue with my '98 Aspencade. Replaced the battery and everything looks until I start the bike. The LCD is dark, radio inop and cruise wont set. If I turn bike off and leave key in ACC position the LCD lights up and the radio works?!?!?!?

:wtf:



Any help will help. Just got this beautiful bike and it has been flawless until this...



Thanks for any help... Mike

just thought of something. It seems to me the power to the LCD is cut when starter is engaged. Is there a relay that may be stuck causing thepower to be cut to LCD when bike is running??
