SOURCE: problems with 1999 valkyrie interstate Radio

Is this a factory install?

Based on what you are saying here ... I suspect you have a faulty ground. Make sure you have a good ground.

You can test this by making a temporary ground with a wire connecting from the metal case of the radio to the neg side of your battery. This may not be a teller since you say the trouble is intermittent. Your radio will probably never give you the chance to check it peacefully. It will always work when you have the tools out!

If in doubt, install a good ground. Use a very flexible wire, at least #14 or heavier, stranded or woven NOT solid. Fasten the new ground onto the metal case of your radio - make sure you don't create any shorts. Hook the other end to a known good ground on the frame, NOT the handlebars. To make absolutely sure, go to the neg side of your battery with your new ground. Also, make sure your antenna has a good ground and is not shorting to that ground (bad leadin wire).

Let me know if this works for you.

First I suggest that you join the VRCC club ( its FOC) and they have lots of answers on the site.

Of course it depends on the make.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Valkyrie Interstate. How can I check

The fastest way is to get a multimeter and set is on DC volts, get to the battery and start the bike place the leads of the meter on the battery posts and rev the motor to about 2000 RPMs you should get a reading of 13-15 volts if the system is working if you dont get that reading then you will have to check the stator,and regulator.

On a 2004 chevy tahoe. Once the instrument cluster wire clip is detached and new bulbs are soldered on the cluster. Does the instrument cluster have to be reprogrammed ?

Shouldn't need reprogramming. I removed the cluster from my 04 Silverado and sent it in for repair and replacement of the bulbs. It was out of my truck for 2 weeks. When I got it back everything worked just fine, no problems at all.

Air bag light bulb change

Airbag SENSOR light bulb? Do you mean the airbag system warning lamp in the instrument cluster?

That all depends on the YEAR and MODEL of your Lincoln. (which you did not mention)

Some newer vehicles have LED's that are an integral part of the instrument cluster. If those go out, you must replace the entire cluster to fix it. Otherwise, the instrument cluster must be removed so the bulb can be replaced.

How do i change the indicator bulbs cant get to them

Indicator bulbs for what? If you are talking about indicator bulbs in your instrument cluster, you must remove the instrument cluster to replace them. Then, it depends on what kind of car you are talking about. Some of the newer instrument clusters use non-replaceable, LED lamps. When these fail, the entire instrument cluster must be replaced or shipped out for repair.

I need to fix Dash air vent light -Left side - that goes on and off- How due I remove the bulb and check the wiring?

Check out the "Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs" section below:

2002 Volkswagen Passat - Repair Manual - Chassis Electrical (excerpt)

Dome/Map/Cargo Light

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its retaining clip contacts. If the bulb has tapered ends, gently depress the spring clip/metal contact and disengage the light bulb, then pull it free of the two metal contacts.

To install:
  1. Before installing the light bulb into the metal contacts, ensure that all electrical conducting surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
  2. Insert the bulb into the holder. If the contacts have small holes, be sure that the tapered ends of the bulb are situated in them.
  3. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.
  4. Install the cover until its retaining tabs are properly engaged.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs
The instrument clusters installed on these models are one of 2 types and distinguished by the instrument lighting color, either green or blue.
On models with green instrumentation, only the control light bulbs are replaceable. Should any other failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.
On models with blue instrumentation, none of the components are replaceable. Should a failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.

Map Lights
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its electrical connector.
  3. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Instrument cluster bulb is out. how do i replace

It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.

Need to replace instrument cluster/AC bulbs

Hello, You can obtain a 2004 Ram Factory Service Manual with all of that information available from The reason why it may be so important is because right before the removal instructions the service manual has diagnostic instructions to try. There are numerous pages on removing the instrument cluster, and cluster bezel.

(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
cable. (For Airbag)

(2) Remove the cluster bezel from the instrument
panel. (Refer to 23 - BODY/INSTRUMENT PANEL/

(3) Remove the four screws that secure the instrument
cluster to the instrument panel structural support
(Fig. 5).

(4) Pull the instrument cluster rearward far
enough to access and disconnect the instrument
panel wire harness connectors for the cluster from
the connector receptacles on the back of the cluster

(5) Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument
