Question about 1991 Honda GL 1500 Aspencade Gold Wing
Posted by Anonymous on
I have an1988 Goldwing 1500 and lost my dash, all instrument, and head and taillights on a trip back to Kentucky from Florida. I sent most of the Saturday in Atlanta finding a repair shop and finally spent $95 for a technician to regain my power by doing as follows. You can loosen the 4 8 mm mounting bolts in your left saddlebag. 2 at the top and 2 in the floor. Remove the left side cover, the Fuse box cover for the Relay cover to clear, pull hard on the saddlebag at the front. Then unsnap the relay box cover and work it to the front past the fuse panel and remove it. On the back of the cover you will see a diagram of all your relays and what they control. Remove the main relay which controls your head and taillights. Pull the relay that controls you air compressor because you dont absolutely need it. Place it into the main circuit. That will restore you head and taillights. I had a short in my low beam headlight relay that took out my headlights and taillights and I was pulling a trailer and needed them both. When removing the relay it freed the circuits and all was restored except my low beams. I ordered a replacement relay when returning to Kentucky for a price of $28 each. You can match the relays up with Auto Zone Pilot fog light 30 amp relay for $8 each but they must order them because the former older Pilot Fog lights are not sold there anymore. They will fit exactly only slightly larger but will work over the 20 amp factory but you must break off the mounting tab and grind off the residue on the sidewalk or using a file in order for your Relay Box Cover to close. Then reverse putting everything back together. I hope that resolves your problem. I keep 3 extra relays in my saddle bags. You can test the relays by connecting 12 volts to the 2 side terminals and they should click. Connect an ohm meter to the other 2 and you should get a reading to infinity. If no response the relay is bad.
