Electrical problem, tail light came on funny whining sound and now no power.
my e-mail address is [email protected] I have lost my manual and could use another operators manual to trouble shoot this problem.
There are 2, 30amp dogbone fuseson the Ltd Ed. One is located on the starter selinoid and is the main fuse. The other is a sub main inline fuse and is located behind the starter selinoid. The sub main fuse controlls stuff like the CFI computer, cruise control, air ride suspension and such. I've replaced each on my bike with new 30ampin-line fuse holders....
Don, I have checked the two 30 amp fuses and they where bought blown, I replaced them but still do not have power to anything all I can think is that the ignition switch is no good as something caused the fuses to blow.
OK Barry, let's start simple... First make sure the battery is fully charged and the batteryconnections have are clean and tight. Next use a test light to verify you're getting voltage on BOTH sides of the fuse's.. You say both fuses were blown. If you used fuses that you hadwith the bike they might be old and brittle and failed when you put them in...If you're not getting voltage on both sides of the fuse holders you might want to get some 30amp in-line fuse holders, crimp some round connectors on the ends, and use them in place of the dogbone fuses for testing purposes...
Welcome, WelcomeTo Steve Saunders GoldwingForum.If you have any questions no matter how trivial they may seem this forum is the place to ask them. What I have noticed is that some of the peoplehere were :15red:'sin their previous lives and can answer any question you have. Theforums that I get the most from are::
Yes Don, I replaced the two fuses and I do have power downstream of the fuses but when I turn the key on there is not power and also no power to computer either so it must be something in between as I thing I should have power to computer even if the key is not turned on, unless all power goes through key????
Barry Thank god the season is near done for me here in Canada.
OK, open up the gas cover/Travel computer and remove the fuse cover. Using a test light check all the fuses, 1 thru 11, for power on both sides ofeach fuse then post the result's.. There's some that have power all the time although I'd have to check mine to find out which ones.. Which I'll do if I need too as I need to change the air filter anyway!!
