Hi friends

I'm a poor lone some cowboy euh no ... lone some biker !
I've got a tail light problem !

NO LIGHTING !

Lamps are ok
I followed indications from technical manuel (electrical chapter) :readit:

One of the solution is to change the tail light sensor...



First question : I ever seen this module ! :sadguy:
This is a picture friom web !

Where is it ?

How can I test it ? (if it's possible !)

Where can I find one ? In USA of course beacause there is not a lot of GL 1200 in France !

Thank for your help
:bow:


P.S : so sorry for my english !

Your post doesn't make much sense Misterfax. Which GL1200 variant do you have? I don't think the Interstate has a tail light warning sensor.

We had an 84 aspy a few years ago with no tail lights. After a LOT of digging around a wire was found to have a kink in it inside the outer sheath that covered a group of wires. After nearly 30 years this kink in the wire had caused the wire to break at that point.
It was an easy fix, but took weeks to locate.

Your bike would be an Interstate.
The tail lamp sensor is behind the cover for your battery. The sensor is located behind the starter solenoid.
Unplug the sensor. Bridge the two brown wires and see if your tail lamps illuminate. If jumper makes the lights work, then the sensor is bad.

If you have as you previously said analog gauges it is an Interstate.

The LTD has digital gauges and it's fuel injected so doesn't have carburetors.

if you do not have fuel injection or a digital dash,without a doubt you have an
"interstate" having a speedo that's metric could mean its a canadian version maybe

if you post us the serial # without the last five digits someone may may able to tell you exactly what version(country) it was made for

checking the parts interchange shows a tailight sensor in all models of 1200's
