I’m new to GoldWings and I need help. I recently purchased a 2006 GL1800 with124,000 miles. I’m having a couple of issues

1, the cruise set light keeps blinking and it doesn’t go into cruise control.

2, twice now I‘ve gone to start the bike, I turn on the ignition, the lights come on but when I press the starter button nothing happens. I make many attempts to no avail then, suddenly it starts.

I push the switch a dozen times, nothing then out of the blue it started.

3, as of yesterday the reverse gear doesn’t engage. It kinda grinds and sticks but won’t move the bike.
the only thing I’ve done recently was I left the ignition aux on and as a result had to replaced the Battery. I cleaned and tightened the cables as I reconnected the battery.

The starting is probably just a dirty start button. Reverse might be the same thing but doesn't sound like it.

The cruise light sounds like something is loose. Those bikes have a lot of brake light and cruise switches. Any one of them can cause the cruise to not engage.

The reverse cables probably need adjusting.
