Dash light

Post by tvanvran » Fri May 29, 2015 7:01 am

This just started happening. 1994 Goldwing Aspencade trike! While I am riding my dash lights will come on, in particular the cruise control lights and the oil light on the far right. Then they go out. I have also had the Neutral light and OD light on the left not come on once I start up and then they will come on after awhile.

Has anyone else had this issue? I haven't started looking yet so anything is on the table.

Thanks for your help

Can't swear to it but my first thought is a bad ground. Corroded or loose. Vibration causing the change in status of the lights. Again, not being able to troubleshoot it on site I am guessing at what I think is the first and most obvious issue. Good Luck.

Mine does this also, about 5 miles or so after starting off in the AM, and was told it is normal, comp cycling or something like that. . .

Sorry I can not give a better , more precise answer, but is normal.
