If you have noticed the headlight and dash lights coming on slowly(fading on) you probably have a dirty contact base in the ignition switch. Remove the switch, put the key in the switch, turn it to the on position, press the three tabs on the base ,and the bottom of the switch should pull off easily. Typically dirt, grease, and copper will smear across the contacts shorting them out. If you take a new razor blade you can carefully shave/scrape the crud off and stop the shorting. Worst case scenario , you will have to buy a new contact base. Five years ago my bike quit at Mount Rushmore. I coasted two miles down the mountain to Keystone, parked in the shade, scraped the switch contacts clean with a pocket Knife, and have driven the bike since with out the power issues.

My head light flickers on my 1998 honda goldwing 1500 when idling it has a new battery and altanator goes away when riding


Hi, Dennis if your headlight is not working the first thing to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.

1990 GL 1500 SE Gold Wing no lights working


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/low beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.
