The Fl lamp lights up when the computer finds a malfunction in the programmed Fuel Injection. There are 33 different codes. The offending code is denoted by how many times the Fl light blinks.
Nine of the 33 codes do not show symptoms since the engine still runs okay. If the Fl light just stays on then the engine will not run because the computer will not let it run, (except in two cases).
"MIL" translates as "Malfunction Indicator Lamp ".

This is what the service manual says:

" The PGM-Fl MIL denotes the failure codes ( the number of blinks from 0 to 33 ). When the indicator lights for 1.3 seconds it is equivalent to 10 blinks. For example, a 1.3 second illumination and two blinks ( 0.5 second X 2 ) of the indicator equals 12 blinks. Follow code 12 on page 5-26.
When more than one failure occurs, the MIL shows the blinks in order of the lowest number to the highest number. For example, if the indicator blinks once, then two times, two failures have occurred. Follow codes 1 and 2 on page 5-12."

BOTTOM LINE > A blinking light that can't be understood, combined with instructions that can't be understood make the entire Honda "malfunction alert system" totally worthless and a pain in the neck to the owner. Why can't someone in Japan write a computer program that would render something like " Code 23 error " instead of a blinking light that means nothing because it is not user friendly.

You asked what the FI light means. It means you are forced to take your bike in for service at a Honda shop and pay big bucks to the dealer for something you could have done yourself for $12.00. This is a built-in money maker for Honda dealers.

My gages won,t reset when I go to start my truck.when that happens it won,t start when thay reset it starts whats my problem to look at


Some instrument clusters may be able to self-test, it will turn warning lamps on and off, plus, sweep the gages, w/o outside input, meaning buss or serial data. If it passes that test, it is considered to be ok.
Yes, checking voltage and ground for instrument cluster is always a good idea, when problem is ongoing. At least, one voltage feed to instrument cluster should go hot with key on, could be problem in that area?
Are there any applicable trouble codes?
I can't look up much info w/o year--make--model?

My dash lights and gages are not working and my night driving lights are not working either... do i need a new cluster


If you mean the parking lights, they are not affected by the cluster.
The gauges are on one fuse, the dash lights are on another, and the parking lights on a third circuit.
I would check for power at the fuses then headlight switch for the lighting problems. And for voltage at the fuse and the connector on the back of the cluster for the gauges problem.

Bike back fires and the f1 light comes on on the cluster panel as well as bike dies


The F1 light is the FI fuel injection light. Your bike needs to be diagnosed and scanned by your dealer or trusted mechanic. There is a problem with your fuel system and a code has been registered, your bike won't start or run correctly until your mechanic has scanned, fixed and cleared the code.

Cluster problem,transmation temp gage ,engine temp gage not working but in info message center flashing other problem like battery voltage flashing but working gage no high beem indecater only sometimes...


This sounds like a few problems, the first thing i would is to have the computer scanned for any storeed codes, have the engine computer and body computer checked then scan the cluster for any problems, these trcks had a few problems with the cluster and the throtlebody just to name a few things, start with the scanning then maybe replace the cluster, on most of these newwer trucks the replacement cluster must be program to truck inorder for the truck to run correctly and cluster to operate correctly. hope this is helpful also check with your dealer for any recalls on this cluster problem you may be able to get free repairs.

My check gage light is on what do i do help!!!!!!!!!!


A "check gage light" typically indicates a faulty reading on one of the gages located on your instrument cluster. After starting your vehicle, observe your instrument cluster if one of the indicator needles on the instrument cluster remains all the way to the left or "pegs" out all the way to the right, it may be the cause of your fault. The exception is the coolant temperature gage it will take 10 to 15 minutes after which the needle should rise to a normal position. Correcting the "faulty gage light" will depend on which gage is malfunctioning. Once you have figured out which gage is causing the check gage light to illuminate, then we can proceed to correcting the problem causing it.
