Intermittent power shortage/outage to stereo and odometer

Post by Tjgabes »



Hi I have been having an issue with my 2002 wing. Occasionally when hitting my brakes the stereo will cut out and then start to play again. I noticed today after this had happened my trip odometer and clock both reset. When I tried to make this happen by applying brakes at a dead stop in front of garage door I noticed my head light was cutting out as well. This doesn't happen all the time just on occasion. Any ideas and/or suggestions would be helpful.
Thanks Tom

Pretty much any time odd things are happening to otherwise unrelated electrical systems, it's almost always caused by a bad ground somewhere.
