Control Cluster doesn't work

I just bought the bike, the guy said it needed to be reconnected but I don't see any wires not connected. I thought it was probably a fuse issue, but I checked all the fuses on the handle bar and everything is working. This is my first bike and I'm super busy at the moment so any advise would be appreciated.

    Oh I probably should mention that everything else works, the lights, horn, and lights on the control cluster.

The control cluster usually has a fuse and a ground wire. Check both.

SOURCE: accessory fuse keeps blowing, headlight not working

I know this sounds aomewhat general, however please give the following some thought:
Check your relays, if you have an aftermarket horn you may have a different relay. To troubleshoot unplug your headlight, unplug your horn, etc.. Turn your ignition switch to accessory only. See if the fuse pops. If it does unplug whatever added accessories you may have still have plugged in. Once you can get the fuse to stop popping, turn the ignition switch to on. Then one at a time plug you accessory, headlight, etc. back in. When you find what pops the fuse, unplug that item, start plugging in the other items, if the fuse has not popped you have potentially isolated the circuit causing the issue. Now check the wiring for loose connections, bad ground, and CHECK the relay if that item has one. Hope this helps,

JP

SOURCE: Front speakers on my 2007 Yamaha Royal Star Venture Motorcycle

I had this problem on one of my bikes and found that I had a bad ground. Wires can be broken inside the insulation. An ohm meter can be used for that. Do a continuity check on the wiring.

There is usually a kill button on all motorcycles, make sure it is reset. Also make sure you have the gas turned on. Good luck!

Did you also check the system fuses? The fuse box is located behind the left side crankcase cover above the coolant reservior.

The 15 amp Signal fuse protects the coolant temperature light, the turn signal indicator light, the neutral indicator light, the oil pressure light, horn, brake/taillight, postition light and turn signal light. Basically, if this fuse is blown, your cluster will be inop.

Please let me know if this is helpful.

You may check the dealer for a wire schematic or purchase a repair manual for the bike. Sounds like a manual would be a better resource depending on what you said about getting screwed over.

1992 s10 dash lights do not work, everything else works fuse looks fine and replaced anyway!!!


The instrument cluster dimmer switch is either faulty, or may simply need to be unplugged and reconnected. I have seen this many, many times on vehicles. Over time and with use, the connections lose connectivity due to the lack/depletion/dissipation of electrical contact grease that is used from the factory for electrical connections. When you have removed the dimmer switch, and unplugged it, spray the connections on the wiring harness, as well as the switch with either electrical contact spray, or WD40, reconnect and start to move the dimmer control as far as it will turn in both directions. If that isn't the issue, I would recommend that you remove the instrument cluster, and check the bulbs, and connections. (Bad bulbs, especially all of them at once, is rarely the case.) If the bulbs are good and the connections are clean and making a solid connections from the wiring harness to the instrument cluster, you are looking at buying a dimmer switch.

I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

these trucks have a generic body control module in the left kickpanel. just remove the plastic trim from the drivers floor molding to access the module. inspect the wire for green dust or gel. if there is signs of this then you have a corrosion problem. disconnect you battery and then try cleaning the corrosion all off using contact cleaner and penetrating oil. once the corrosion is gone then reconnect everything and try to see if it works. If not then it is possible that the module is damaged. you will need a new one.

HI THE PROBLEM WITH YOUR REAR LIGHTS IS THAT YOU HAVE A BROKEN NEGATIVE WIRE FOR THE REAR LIGHT CLUSTER TO PROVE THIS, SIMPLY RUN A LENGTH OF CABLE FROM THE METAL CASING OF THE LIGHT CLUSTER AND GO DIRECT TO THE BATTERY NEGATIVE IF ALL THE LIGHTS THEN WORK THAT PROVES ALL THE FEED SIDE .MOST MOTOR BIKES HAVE BULLET CONNECTIONS YOU NEED TO TRACE THE WIRING FROM THE BACK OF BIKE TO THE FRONT UNDER THE SEAT TO THE FUSES IF YOU CAN,T FIND ANYTHING LOOSE OR BROKEN THEN I SUGGEST YOU MAKE A NEW NEGATIVE RETURN TO BATTERY NEGATIVE A PERMANANT ONE THIS SHOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM. GOOD LUCK{ FROM AN AUTO ELECTRICIAN}

Replacing '91 volvo 240 instrumet cluster


I though so too, isn't there an extra wire that wasn't connected to the cluster? On the passenger side of the cluster? It may not be on this late of a model.
