Question about Honda GL 1800 Gold wing Deluxe Motorcycles

1 Answer

My problem is with a Honda ATV, I hope a motorcycle guy can help. The 1st gear light is flashing 3 times like an error code. The shift doesn't change gears. Sometimes I can turn off the key and the system will work. I can be driving in 3rd gear and the light will start flashing. I am trying to find a list of error codes for this ATV. Thank you for any help.

Hi,

The flashing of the indicator is hondas self diagnosing function. in this case it is code 3.

This is the code for the shift switch. most likely what as happened is the electronic shift switch harness has developed a short or open. it is very common for water to get into those harnesses and cause these codes or water, corrosion, or slighly disconnected connector can make this code appear below the front fender you should notice two connectors attached to the frame. one round white connector and a square looking gray connector, the gray connector is the connector for this harness. i would reccomend inspecting the connection of this connector, and all the harness leading to it. if nothing is found then it is likely that water may have gotten into the harness and with the use of alot of compressed air, sometimes you can clear most of it. accessing it by peeling away some of the black tape that seals off the insulator for this harness.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

2007 420 Rancher ES. Why is it stuck in 3rd gear and seems to be flashing a code of 12?


Most transmissions go into a fail safe mode to prevent damage to transmission but you can still damage it if you keep driving it. Most related codes are due to speed sensors. But you will have to look up what the code means exactly.

Shifting to neutral is a bit tricky until you get the hang of it. From first gear, shift only halfway. From second downshift only halfway. Don't do a full pull on the shifter just lightly. It takes some finesse and practice, but you will get it in no time.
