    12V in glovebox not working

    There is a 12V inside my ST1300 lockable glovebox that ceased to work after I plugged in Aerostich pump to fill my tires. I have checked all the fuses in the fusebox but all appear to be fine. Everything else is running just great. I'm wondering if there is an inline fuse on the 12V behind the glovebox?

    Bike came with the 12V already installed so I'm not sure if that is the case. But as these are pretty popular, I'm wondering if anyone can confirm this and if so, how do I remove the glovebox to get at it?

    If they used the "quad harness" as Honda does to power it, there is a fuse under the left side fairing where the harness connects...believe the left side must come off... the standard fuse for that is only about 2a which is why it popped!

    BTW, while your in there and find it, put a small extension on it and bring it up to behind the left mirror so it will be easily changed in the future

    The 12v outlet isn't stock.

    Possibly power was taken from the left side panel under the seat .

    It's the panel opposite side of the battery .

    There is another set of fuses there .

    If that doesn't help, you may have to pull off the side cowl plastic to access the area .

    You've blown the in-line fuse in the accessory socket, as seen here:

    I'm not near the bike, but I think the OEM fuse is only rated at 2.5 amps. I only run my Garmin GPS off this socket. You'll have to pull tupperware to get at the fuse, but I don't remember if it lies closer to the right side, or the left side of the bike, where the quartet harness is located.

    I'm sure the much more experienced guys will chime in on this one.

    To muddy the waters, my mechanic installed one for me and wired it right to the battery with an inline fuse so it is right in front of the battery box and easy to get at.

    Most dealers connect it to the quartet harness and put the inline fuse under and in front of the left mirror. Don't ask me why, or how I know.

    So you're saying I can try and pull the mirror off and have a look see?

    @thumperjdm - that's kind of what I thought.

    I have hooked up the other SAE connector that came with the pump to the battery and left it hidden away for future fill ups in an effort to avoid blowing the inline fuse as I'm certain that's what it is.

    It's a easy thing to do as the mirror pops off... but if the regular wires were used ( oem type stock ) its prob not long enough which is why I mentioned adding an extension on the wire.

    Also . looking up from the bottom at wheel, you should see/feel where the wire goes .

    Yes, that is the easiest aproach. Otherwise you'll have to pull the tuperware off on the left side and trace the harnes back to the location of the in-line fuse. Good luck!!!!

    Not enough room to get to it through the mirror. You will almost definately have to pull off the left side fairing.
