98 se controls illumination

Postby 981500se » Wed Sep 30, 2015 6:38 pm



i have a 98 se and I'm plagued with the sticky handlebar controls. I have tried to lubricate and clean them but it doesn't last. I will be ordering new switches for both sides and i wanted to be sure to expect my left control assembly to illuminate. the right one does but not my left currently. The hazard lamps also don't work unless i turn the right signal on then move back to the left while the hazard button is depressed. They also blink back and forth not together. Any ideas or inputs?

Start by checking fuse #10, if it's good, it might be the hazard relay and it's not easy to get to.
Do you have a Service manual to refer to? I could copy the pictures and send to you on how to check the continuity as well.

They should be close enough for what you are doing. I probably use the same manual on my '92.
Start on page 19-22 in the manual.
If you run into an issue or have a question about something, there are lots of people here that are willing and able to help more.
