GL 1800 A8 dash lights

Post by darktux »

I have a 2008 UK spec GL 1800 (airbag & sat nav) & am having trouble finding the answer to a simple question, whilst most of the switches have a great back light & are easy to find at night, the switches below the sat nav display & for heated grips and seat are not illuminated, is this normal, my local dealer is useless and shows no interest in helping.

I have the same question for the high/low beam switch as well

Thanks keith

I have the same model bike as you do, and yes, you are correct. Those switches and the heater controls are not illuminated. High/Low headlight illuminates on the dash.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
