02 FZS dashboard short.
« on: 03 June 2015, 05:52:21 PM »
got a short that occurs on my dash when i put the high beam on or use the pass button where the milage and certain lights go off then come back on with the oil light staying on for a few seconds.

guy at mot thought it might be the handle bar swith so took a punt and changed it, unfortunatly has not cured the issue and now i find that my pass button is not working either on my old switch or my new one, therefore could a faulty relay be the problem?

All the other buttons work fine and checked the terminal connentor when i changed the swith over and ended up cleaning it up.

I had this a couple of years ago - drove me mental! :'(

Turned out to be corrosion and gunk in the main multi-pin connector inside the left-hand fairing.

Open it up and try and clean the pins as much as you can and it should solve it.

/\ as above, this would be my first thing to check, be careful and take your time checking the pins are correctly seated plugging them back together!
Some say...

I have this same problem with my pass light. Is the front fairing easily removed?

right, cleaned the main connectors under the left hand infill panel got the pass button working again but still the same dashboard short so
can someone point me int eh direction of the earth connection on the bike please.

The fairing is easily removed as once the infil panels and screen have been removed it is only held on by four screws, oh and not forgetting the connectors behind the dashboard.
