Tip for the GL1500 (1993 - 2000)
Ref: Neutral Light

If you are on the road with the following issue........!

You have the transmission in neutral but don't have a neutral light.

Note: No neutral light (with the exception of a burned out bulb) indicates no voltage from the reverse
lever switch to the reverse diode assembly and reverse relay switch (which triggers the relay A).

You have eliminated a battery issue.

You have tried moving the reverse lever up/down a few times with no results (no light).

Note: And you don't have an incline to coast the bike and jump start it in 1st or 2nd gear.

Don't consider yourself stranded....or......call for service just yet.....do the following....!

Check the # 9 start/reverse 5-amp fuse. (Power to the reverse lever switch)

If the fuse is good,

Remove the seat.

Locate the C32 Red 22-pin connector with 22 wires. (At the right rear corner under the seat)

Check for power on the black/white wire at the C32 Red 22-pin connector. There should be power with the reverse lever down. You do carry a test meter OR test light on your bike....right....??

If no power.................

Connect a small jumper wire (about 18 gauge or so) from the positive battery terminal to the black/white wire at the C32 Red 22-pin connector. You do carry a small piece of wire on your bike....right....??

The bike should start and you can continue on home or to a service center.

Then do a permanent repair.

Note 1: Reverse will probably not work (depending on the nature of switch failure) but you can live
without that to get home or to a service center.

Note 2: The reverse lever switch on the (1988 – 1992) has no affect on the starting circuit. It can
affect the reverse operation.
