Question about 1999 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing

1 Answer

No lights, only instrument working is fuel guage

Red fuse wire from battery to voltage regulator hot. Replaced voltage regulator and now only instrument working is the fuel guage. Fuel guage was not working before. When I first turned off the ignition the lights stayed on for a short while then dimmed out.

After I replaced the regulator there were no readings on the fuel guage. Upon putting gas in the guage went to full a short time later.????

You have a problem...a bad short it sounds like...disconnect all connectors one at a time time till fuse cools down the slowly hook them back up one at a time...if it get hot thats probably where the problem lies.

Fuel guage and tach not working


Hi. Some automotive instruments use a Voltage Stabilizer to stabilize the instrument cluster and smooth out erroneous and erratic readings. Sometimes this Voltage Stabilizer fails, taking some of the instruments with it, and it needs it to be replaced. You can check you wiring diagram and see if your system uses such a device. They don't cost much although some are not easy to replace. You could also try a second hand instrument cluster.

The first thing you need to do is stop wasting your money by replacing parts. Then get a volt-ohm meter and a test light to test the circuits between the battery, the alternator, the ignition switch, the starter relay and the voltage regulator. (a.k.a. Charging System Circuits)

To start, the "B+" or "BATT" terminal on the alternator (large black wire) MUST have a solid, direct connection to the battery. Check for the proper voltage here. Then, the red wire on the alternator at the "F2" terminal should be HOT at all times. If not, you probably still have a bad fuse link that you missed. The "F1" terminal on the alternator (Light Green wire) is known as your "FIELD" wire. It comes from the "IG" terminal at the voltage regulator. It should be hot any time the key is in the ON position. If not, your voltage regulator is not working or your ignition switch is not providing power to the regulator. Finally, The "F" terminal (Red wire) at the regulator should be hot any time the ignition switch is in the ON position. This actually gets it's power from the starter relay, which gets its power from the ignition switch.

Yes, there is a voltage regulator for those two guages. When you go to the dealer for the part, they should give you an idea where it is located to replace it

Tach, Spedometer, Temp, and fuel guage all went out at the same time. Idiot lights, instr. lights, blinkers all working normaly


there is a regulator in the instrument panel that reduces the battery voltage to 9V, often a zener diode, this is likeley to be blown

The fuel gauge is'nt working.I tryed to ground it


When testing a fuel guage you should disconnect the wires to it,guage should read over full,ground the float wire,turn off key then turn back on should read empty.You have to cycle the key for guage to move.If still inop the wire is broken in the harness between the tank and the dash.Voltage on the float wire is low.When tested with a test light it will barely light the light and pulsate.This test indicates the wiring is good.

Instrument panel went dead


Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

Fuel an temperature gauge quit working


There is a voltage regulator for the instruments, usually located on the back of the instrument panel. This may be kaput or it may just have corroded/loose connections. I would check this first.

Sir,
It's probably the brake lights that are staying on, check again, if the brake lights are staying on the brake light switch needs to be replaced. The reason I believe it's the brake lights is that they will turn on even with the key off so make sure which lights are staying on.

Dashbord instrumentation Non functional for Japan imported FB14 Sentra


VOLTAGE REGULATOR
Located behind the instrument cluster
It is attached to the rear panel of the cluster.
input from battery is 10Volts, it regulates down to 5Volts
Any higher voltage inputed will overload the capacitors and resistors will burn,
Also check power distribution center, under hood upper motor area in drivers corner, check all relays and fuses.
Before you rip in to the dash check all ground wires, battery to ground, harness grounds, driver/passenger mid fram rail, Fuel sender is also ground to top of gas tank. IF ALL gauges do not work, that just leaves voltage regulator and/or cluster is malfunction,
