On my 2012 GL1800: 85 miles into my 500+ mile weekend ride - I lost all power to my tach, speedometer, fuel, temp plus tail lights, signal auto-turn off and the audio enhancer circuits. Also lost cruise control. Got to my son’s house and replaced the 20-amp fuse but it immediately blew too.

Any idea what’s goin on??

Update: found chafed wire on my added tail lights. I guess constant opening and closing the trunk ... hot wire rubbed against ground. Thanks for telling me right where to look everyone!! Goldwing has the very best motorcycle... and people!!

If you added any electrical accessories I'd check them out.

I agree with Ron. Also if you have added any accessory in the proximity of any wiring (trailer hitch, handle bar risers) or made any electrical changes like replacing a battery, those would be potential trouble spots to check out.

Which fuse blew. That is the starting point. And a Service Manual with a wiring diagram in it. Unplug each connector that goes to those item affected. Then plug them back on one by one and when the fuse blows you will know where to look. If you have a trailer hitch, I'd start by looking at that wiring. Unplug the trailer from the bike and see what happens.

It's not the destination, but the getting there.
