Instrument panel indicator display
« on: 16 October, 2019, 11:35:16 AM »
The left indicator light on the instrument display panel has stopped working. Is this a difficult fix? Thanks.

I think the lack of responses is because people haven't had this issue. Subject to more accurate and informative advice -- and just so you have a response sooner rather than later -- it looks like the dash is all electrical/circuits rather than bulbs.

Here's the part of the workshop manual you'll need. Page 21-11 is the one you'll need (or search 21-10 and its literally underneath).

Perhaps try greasing the connector plugs with Vaseline and check for seal / water leaks (or frayed wires/damaged wiring/trapped wiring).

If it were me, for what looks the work involved, I'd be annoyed and continue riding without doing anything as long as (A) not an M.O.T failure (will let you look) and (b) the indicators themselves work without issue.

Thanks for replying. The indicators are working fine. We don't have an mot in ireland so that's not an issue. I'll try greasing the connector plugs and see what happens.

It's a more common problem than you might think. See this thread, esp. the posts from Biker Mike on page 1:
