Question about 1994 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing

1 Answer

My 1994 Goldwing SE keeps blowing the starter fuse. I took the switch apart and cleanded it, 'cause it sticks sometimes. The starter relay on the right side is new. I know it also ties in with the neutral gear, but can't figure it out.

I was called to look at one of these beasts once where it was popping fuses and sometimes it would run for a short while then die. It ended up being the rectifiers in the alternator. I removed the alternator and took it to a car electrician who replaced the diodes relatively cheaply, If I remember correctly, it cost about £25. I found out that the numpty who owned the bike had fitted a battery where the connections were reversed and weakened the rectifiers hence sometimes it would run then it wouldn`t. Hope this helps, Ian

Hi, Raymond before diagnosing your blown fuse issue check the bottom of your seat if its metal and comes in close proximity to the positive battery post you need to take the necessary steps to ensure there is no contact (electrical tape, thick rubber insulation, hammer a dent in the seat bottom etc.) You are going to need a wiring diagram from your service manual, a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses.
If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with and ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any number reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.

My 1994 Mazda MVP will not start. Battery good. The heater blows cold only. Windshield wipers will not turn off unless the fuse is taken out. I'm assuming it electrical. Turn the key, nothing. Turned it...


There is a central component called a body computer among other names. I would think this would cause all of the problems that you are describing.

Goldwing won t start


Check for any blown fuses or relays, check the starter switch to make sure power is going into the switch and out to the starter solenoid, if there is power coming from the switch to the solenoid but the starter wont turn you will have to have the starter checked or replaced.

K2500 Suburban with. 6.5 Diesel and the instrument fuse keeps blowing when I turn the key to the on position. When I disconnected the glow plug relay the fuse did not blow. Also while running with th


did u replace the relay just a curious question, sometimes they have rust and water in the inside of the relay but my guess would be that you have a bare wire rubbing somewhere, causing the fuse to blow, anything significant has happened before that issue?

1995 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing will not turn over


Hi, Richard before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Blown fuse - What's it protect???


in what country ?
My '89 2.3 liter Isuzu pickup
NO TRANSMISSION STATED (auto or stick)?
fuse are to prevent FIRES
ever see a wire burn red hot and then melt a fuel line (ugly *****)
fuses on cars with fuel are serious.!
lesson 2 is There are not 1 fuse for every load in a car, or you'd have 100s fuses.
lesson 3, the power distribution is a tree with branches fused.
same deal on cars, trains, boats and planes.
for the same reasons
my wild guess1
you work with no 89 2.3 liter schematic the proceed to hack it and find fuses blow. sure.

so my guess 2 is you bypassed the starter solenoid ?
and overload that circuit.!
the relay has purpose, its a current buffer (lesson4)
the reason car didnt crank
is the relay
the blk/white wire uses like 8amp
current is buffered by the relay to 30 times less.
This less current save you from burning up and expensive
ignition switch, (some are $100)
that 5 relay saves 100 bucks. and repeats.
the relay also us for logic
the USA laws mandate a park /in gear lock out
so the relay did that, at blk-pink wire.
now defeated. by you.
try a new relay (if hacking is a goal)
and put switch to ground (pin1,) and pin2 of switch to
brown -red wire on new relay. bam starter fixed
and no burn burned up ignition swithes or fuses.
see fuse 12 below. 10amps
that fuse can not run a solenoid direct, the relay must be working.
the starter solenoid uses a 60amp fuse. blk wire (main).
