Indicators on constant since battery was replaced

Hope you can help :)
The battery on my zzr1100 went dead during the week (it is also fitted with a Laserline 860 alarm), i replaced it and the alarm works fine, can be armed and disarmed and the engine starts but the indicator lights are constantly on and will not switch off (I have disconnected the battery so it doesn't waste the new battery). What can i do to fix this problem?
many thanks

Hi again,

Appreciate the quick postback.

Let's try process of elimination:

  • could not be the fuse marked TURN 10 A, there is power to the signal/turn lights;
  • could not be the turn switched, it will be either one but not both at the same time;
  • but it could be the flasher relay (flasher can or indicator relay). In some Kawasakis, they would be right beside the starter relay. And since you replaced the battery, which is right next to it, possibly dislodged/disconnected the connector at the bottom. Might as well check the ground wires.
  • Alternately, it could be any of the connectors slightly pulled/disconnected within the same area.
Should this not address the issue or if the flasher relay be not there would appreciate updates (for any developments or even the lack thereof).

its the lights on the bike, instead of being able to switch the left or right indicator on so they are flashing, both are on constantly.

Why should my 2.7tdi terrano get through 4 glow plugs in one week?

Yeah, I agree that the relay is probably working...but my thought is that the only way you can burn out 4 glow plugs in a week is if the signal going to the relay is screwed up, and the glow plugs are on until they burn out... Did you have a battery problem during that week? Need to recharge or replace it? That could be a clue.... Or if you went on long journeys during that time where the alternator managed to compensate for the drain.....

Bad battery! if it goes dead while just sitting. A good battery should last for weeks if not months as long as there isn't a constant drain on it.

Skytech receiver batteries keep going dead


The heat from the fireplace can have an adverse effect on the life of the batteries. Sometimes simply re-positioning the receiver to a cooler location under the firebox and/or adding a heat-shield can improve battery performance with the Skytech remote receivers.
As a test, you could even place the receiver outside the fireplace for a period of time to gauge the effect of heat on the unit.

According to the owner's manual for the Skytech 3301 Thermostat Remote:

"For REMOTE RECEIVERS that operate on BATTERY POWER, these heat conditions can cause batteries to discharge when temperatures exceed 115 degrees F. Studies show that alkaline batteries, when exposed to a constant temperature of 120 degrees F, can lose up to 50% of their operating power. When the battery cools down, it will partially recharge itself, but constant heating and cooling will reduce the battery's normal life expectancy."

Hope this helps!

Repalced battery as old one had dead cell the new battery was fitted and went flat have replaced starter and alt but still get flat battery have check all fuses and all are in woking order and to stage...

check the parasitic draw on the battery. If the draw is greater than 40 ma, something is causing the battery to go flat before it should. Recommend you monitor parasitic draw using a DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter) and unplug one fuse at a time until you discover which circuit is draining the battery.

Phone dead

I am guessing heat can only come from discharging the battery in a non-intentional way. Short circuit or something internal.

Did you plug it into something besides the connector it came with?
An FM transmitter for the iPod killed mine.
Hard reset, wall charging, USB charge, iTunes restore, replaced the battery ... still dead.
Considering how hot it gets, (could be a fire hazard?) surprised Apple doesn't issue a notice or warning.

Caveat emptor, going back to Motorola.
