guys I have a 97 1500 and it turns over but wont start. if I jiggle the wires going to the starter magnetic switch it starts. my dash also flickers. could it just be the switch or something else?

Sounds like a poor loose connection that wiggling makes contact. Check all connections in that area.

Also the GL1500 is famous for grounding problems but if at any time you can wiggle something and it works then it is a connection problem.

jiggle

I'll keep checking connections. I don't really want to buy parts if it's just a connection somewhere.:praying:

tap tap tap

Thanks for all the help. but after checking all the connections now the bike wont turn over unless I tap on the starter magnetic switch. Now it's time to buy a new one.
