hi all,

i was wondering if anyone of you have heard of a reason that there is no power going to compressor, radio or Cb unit . A friend an i are trying to restore a gl1500 1988 model and have discovered it has some electrical glitches. (This bike used to belong to the Preacher (R.I.P)of Goldwing owners club of Ireland .)All fuses were checked and ok ,but havent checked relays yet. We suspect relay trouble but it would help if someone who has had this problem before could tell us if its one thats in the fuseboard or one of the power relays beside the battrery box.

The bike is running well enough for her age , but its getting frustrating trying to locate this problem





many thanks in advance

It's not the Starter relay switch A (with the 30-amp fuse) by the battery. If that relay is bad or the 30-amp fuse is blown, the bike will not start.

Power goes from the ignition switch to the # 10 (10-amp fuse) This is a Light Green/Black wire.

A Light Green/Black wire goes from the # 10 (10-amp fuse) to the CB and the Radio/Cassette Deck. This is the main power to the CB and Radio Cassette Deck.

I would recommend checking the # 10 (10-amp fuse) plus check the contacts where it plugs in.

If you have no power to the CB or Radio/Cassette Deck, the problem is no doubt with the fuse, contacts or the connectors involved with this power wire.

Looks like this one slipped down a few pages before we could get to ya. DBohrers post covers all the main checklist things. If the radio LCD display is out also, then you have a main power out to the whole audio and that lite green & black wire at the back of the radio is what feeds from the ignition. I've seen bad ignition switches cause this issue and shaking and pulling the harness might get the radio to flicker on and confirm it.
