Post GL1800 FI Codes

If FI (Fault Indicator) light comes on pull over but DO NOT shut bike off. Put in neutral and put side stand down, RPM’s below 1500. This signals the ECM to send the error code to the FI light. Count the number of long and short flashes. This will give you the error code. Also known as Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)

If you shut the bike off the error code is lost - sort of. It will be retained in the ECM but it is harder to get out. If the bike stops and the will not restart you can get the FI light to flash the error code by cranking the engine for 10 seconds. The FI light will then flash the error code.

Long Blink = 10 Short Blink = 1
i.e. long long long short short short = 33 check error code 33

tryke lady,
Thanks for posting. Something to SAVE for sure.
Hopefully someone else will benefit from this older post. I know I haven't seen it before.

Trike Lady, is there a way to connect a laptop to the GoldWing computer?

Behind my bike is my most important accessory.

There must be because there are companies that can re-flash the ECU or ECM, whatever Honda calls it. One popular company is Guhl Motors. Don is the guy to talk to there. I assume you would need special wiring hookups and special computer programming to connect and modify or even to connect and diagnose.

You would need to get Honda's version of 'Digital Technician' and the correct cable to hook the diagnostic port of the Wing to the computer.

The software is probably available to Honda Techs through the dealership, possibly not available to the general public. You may want to ask the Honda dealer if the software is available and if they'd sell it to you and if so, how much? Might be expensive.
