High Gregg my previous question About led panel going blank, My make and Model of bike is 1991 Honda Goldwing GL1500 Aspencade

Hi, Steve thanks for getting back to me I'm guessing due to the age of your bike it's probably a wiring issue the insulation gets brittle and starts to crack first thing I would do is check your instrument fuse if you have one next I would check the connection between the panel harness and the main wiring harness look for corroded, loose or broken pins. I found a free service and owners manual for you should have a wiring schematic in the electrical section for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

96 dodge intrepid brake lamps do not turn off. already replaced brake lamp switch. lights stay on even after removing fuse. please help

Hmmm... sounds like a power( live line ) melted the insulation and fused together w/ the brake line, thus it powers up your brake light.

Check your rear brake wire harness leading to the front connection main harness., if the harness are covered w/ plastic insulation, cut the insulation and look for a wire that melted and fused together.
If you found the wire, seperate it and put some insulator tape to prevent power line shorting.
The power line usually colored RED.
Hope that helps!

I have a 82 gl 1100 goldwing. The previous owner

The fuse on the starter solenoid is the main fuse for the bike. If that fuse was removed and replaced with a wire, you could melt down the entire harness or even burn up the cycle. The short that was popping the fuse has probably melted part of the harness or popped fuses in another part of the bike. Start checking in the main fuse box in the fake tank for shorts. Also check the solenoid with the main fuse for melt down, good luck.

2005 Honda Goldwing- Electrical issue. Bright

sounds like a wire has been added the wrong way or wires have damage, switch could be the culprit. Does the kill switch work? I would be checking all wires and the conectors for heat damage (melting).And fuses for all circuts. if low beam is used does key work to stop engine?

89' banshee power trouble

that is a possibility. i would make sure that all of the connections leading from the battery to the coils are good . if that doesn't help the coil/s may be going bad or getting old ( if the coil/s are starting to go bad it works fine at lower rpms because the coils dont have to work as hard and have more time to charge up between each charge release)

1997 nissan pickup stopped running with smell of electrical burn. I noticed some melted wire harnesses coming from the batteries positive terminal. It was not the main battery terminal cable but rather...

Those wires need to be replaced or repaired. They probably were rubbing together and shorted out, not uncommon in older vehicles. If you do it yourself, make sure you replace them with the same gauge (size) wire and use heat shrink tube on your joints. Do them one at a time so you get them hooked up right.
Once you get them repaired you may find other electrical problems that have occured because of it, it all depends on where they went.Hope this helps.

My 89 Honda Goldwing wiring started smoking, blew fuses, and melted part of the fuse box. Can I buy a new wiring harness (and where?) or do I have to buy a used one? Also, are there any other year models...

you may be able to get a loom but it will be very vey expensive ! from a dealer
try google for forums on your model or clubs!
as they have items for sale columns etc.
good luck
