GL1200 Aspy clock
Is the GL1200 Aspencade clock supposed to go "off" when the key is out ??

Mine has remained "on" for years .... and years ...
Possibly re-wired by a PO ??

Its such a small parasitic drain, that I have never worried much about it... until somebody told me, last weekend that its supposed to go " off"....

stays on the radio also uses juice to maintain memory and CB also if installed.
I all ways plug mine in to a battery tender junior unless battery is disconnected.
I dont get to ride often enough any more so it is parked a lot.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

From what I read on the schematic for an '85 Interstate, there is a continuous power source to keep the time running (should be a nominal amount of current) and the display only comes on with the key in the on position.

The functions of the clock are:
continuous time

According to the schematic:
Red - Battery, coming off ignition switch to keep the clock running
Green - Ground
Light Green/ Black - Acc. of fuse block for the display

so, check the plug and see if it has been altered.

-Ride On
enjoying the view from the saddle....... due mainly to the people and information found within this site
