Scroll down to the bottom, on the left in the FILES section you will see a link to wiring diagrams. You will need to register (free) to be able to use it; probably the best thing you'll do this weekend!

Dead electrical circuit - how to trace

Hi, Anonymous you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

I have 1989 Goldwing gl1500 that willnt start

Have you tried the electrical connections to the battery. Corrosion on any terminal will not make a connection to the bike. If this does not work, trace your wired from starter button down through to the starting mechanism. If intact it may need a new starter.

1996 goldwing. going from reverse, neutral light will not come on

Hi, Carlsam53 before testing any electrical component in the Reverse 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 otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. The reverse electric motor fuse was blown.
2. Reverse button stuck in the depressed position.
3. Run/off switch in the off position.
4. Bike not in neutral.
5. Faulty relay, reverse actuator, solenoid, regulator module,
6. Wire connectors in the reverse system faulty due to corroded, bent, broken, loose, retracted or missing wire pins and sockets.
7. Reverse cables not properly adjusted.
8. Faulty reverse lever components.
9. Reverse lever not in the on position.
10. The side stand is in the down position.
11. The reverse motor has failed and needs an overhaul.

1982 1100 goldwing innerstate no power to the lights or nutural light want come on but im getting a lil spark to the plugs fuses are all good

I'm not a Honda expert but I think in '82 the lights had to be turned on with an extra twist of the switch. Not like today's machines where the lights came on with the ignition. If this is the case, you could have a bad switch. Otherwise, you need a wiring diagram to trace everything out. A GoldWing is a bit of an electrical nightmare.

Fuses keep burning out


It's not a common problem with Goldwings at all.

As with any, and all electrical problems, time and patience is a necessary thing right now.

Piece of advice for you for down the road...never alter your scooter in any way unlesss you know exactly what you're doing.

The best advise I can give you right now is not good news.

Take your scooter to an authorized dealer and let them find the short and fix the other problem as well.

I know from experience that shorts in the electric system can make you pull out your and the nieghbors hair. If you make an error in trying to fix the short and it's not the correct solution you can fry your entire loom (wiring system).

Good luck Jon, and keep the rubber side down, I hope this helps you and thanks for letting us at help as much as we could.

Charping system

I would start by getting a shop manual, Get either a Honda manual or a 3rd party manual by Clymer or Haynes. The manual will have pictures/diagrams of the locations of different parts and a wiring diagram which you can use to trace all the wiring and connectors. The manual will also give instructions on how to test the regulator/rectifier/stator etc. You will also need a multimeter.
