Gl1800 Weird Lights / Turn signal behaviour
Hi, I run a 2004 GL1800 here in the UK, and I've suddenly got some problems with the headlights and turn signals - hope someone can help!
The issue came on suddenly during a long ride - no sign of any problems before.
What I'm getting is:
- all turn signals (front and rear) on constantly but very dim. The turn switch on the left bar has no effect.
- four-way flash doesn't work
- no headlights
- tail lights normal
- brake lights work fine
- right-side main beam is ON
- all other lights are OFF
The bike drives fine and all accessories are fine.
I have previously had an issue with the starter switch, but this was fixed and this is a different issue I believe.
All help appreciated!
[UPDATE] I continued looking into this problem - and found a blue connector under the left fairing pocket showing signs of corrosion. I opened this up and sprayed contact cleaner through it, and now I have working headlights, and the four-way flash works too. However, I still have no turn signals.
Something I didn't mention in the original post was that I rode through heavy rain for a couple of hours yesterday, so I assume some damp has got in there - it's only corroded in one corner, suggesting there's a leak from the fairing above.
I can't be certain that the turn signal issue is related - I first saw there was a problem when the signals stopped working, but it was only when I stopped and checked over the bike that I saw the problem with the headlights.
