Indicator dash lights not flashing

Post by loopy » Wed Sep 12, 2018 5:39 am



On my 2010 goldwing GL, all indicators flash as they should except the dash inducator lights do not operate while external lights operate.
Would appreciate advice please

Have you had your top shelter off for any reason lately? Possible burned out bulbs, or a fuse, or unplugged or broken wiring.

If the lights in the mirrors are good, then it has to be either a bad connection in the gauge cluster’s ground circuits at C4 under the left fairing pocket in the white frame or a bad connection on one of the three plugs on the back of the gauges. The turn indicators are LEDs and it’s highly unlikely that both would burn out at the same time. Is everything else in the gauges working properly?

Just remembered that the high beam indicator light does not illuminate even though headlamp operate.

Ok, try something and let me know the outcome. Start the bike, turn on the high beams, then turn off the key, does the engine stop running or does it continue to run? If it continues to run, flip off the high beams, turn on the key, then turn off the key. The engine should stop.
