Question about 1990 Honda GL 1500 Gold Wing

2 Answers

1990 Honda Goldwing GL1500 lights go off when put in gear.

I own a Honda GL1500 1990 SE Goldwing. The problem is that my tail,brake, and running lights go off when I put the bike in gear. They come back on when I put it in neutral. I changed the flashers and checked the fuses. What can be causing this?

We had the same thing tonite. thanx to the guy that pointed us in the right direction.
More specificly, if you remove the seat, you will find two black plastic boxes, one on each side. they hold a 30-40 pin connector. the one on the left side (as you are sitting on it) we found one burned connection in the corner of the plug. a green wire. we cut the wire off both sides of the plugs & made a jumper (bypassed the plug) works good, even the cruise works now too.
hope this helps. now we can relax & have some beers EH!!

Sounds like could possibly be a ground problem with the wiring.. check for a broken wire or possibily corroded connection
