Question about 1999 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing

Fuses keep burning out

I have a 1999 GL1500 GoldWing and the turn signal/horn fuse keeps burning out. How do I find the short ? Is this a common problem with GoldWings ? I took some bad advise and put in a circuit breaker fuse yesterday and it now seem that it has blown another fuse or the relay to the signals/horn. I dont know what to do next. any advise you can offer is greatly appreciated.
Thanks !!

It's not a common problem with Goldwings at all.

As with any, and all electrical problems, time and patience is a necessary thing right now.

Piece of advice for you for down the road...never alter your scooter in any way unlesss you know exactly what you're doing.

The best advise I can give you right now is not good news.

Take your scooter to an authorized dealer and let them find the short and fix the other problem as well.

I know from experience that shorts in the electric system can make you pull out your and the nieghbors hair. If you make an error in trying to fix the short and it's not the correct solution you can fry your entire loom (wiring system).

Good luck Jon, and keep the rubber side down, I hope this helps you and thanks for letting us at help as much as we could.

For 2004 ford truck f150 extended cab, I found the horn fuse, where is the horn relay?

disconnect the horn or horns, operate the horn and see if the fuse still blows. if the fuse still blows then there is most likely a short in the wiring. relays rarely cause shorts. if the fuse doesnt blow with the horn disconnected, reconnect the horn and operate the horn again, if the fuse blows you have a shorted horn.

Lost headlight,horn,both turn signals last week after a pretty hard bump in the road.Keeps blowing the top and bottom 15 amp fuses on the left bank of the fuse block

Somewhere you have a dead short, i.e. wire shorted to ground. Only solution is to trace all your wires from the fuse box to the switches, headlight, horn, and turn signals. This will be much easier if you have access to a service manual, but can be done without one if you are patient.

1999 gl1500 turn signals do not work, hazard flashers work

The steering sensor is only to cancel them. Sounds like there is a loss of power between the fuse box and the switch on the handlebar. Open it up and check for power

Speedo, turn signals, brake lights, horn stopped working. All else is fine.

Gap your plugs to 38 thou. Check all your bulbs (one burned out will affect the rest) Take a look at all your fuses and make sure they are all ok. Otherwise you are probably looking at a wiring short which will require trouble shooting of the elctrical system. Buy your self a service manual for your bike, this will help you a lot.
