Question about Suzuki DR-Z 400 Motorcycles

1 Answer

Im having problems with the electrical system. my lights dont seem to shine very bright. my gauges are digital and they flash on and off continuisly and dont even have enough power to register the speed or anything else. its like they wanna come on but dont have enough power to do so. but when i hit my brake light the headlight gets a little better. then if i turn the signal and brake light and hit the horn the headlight shines bright and the gauges start to work for a sec. it seems that the more of a load i put on the system the better it works. do i have a bad ground? and if so where is a good place to start?

Yes. a ground is a good possibility. Check the system voltage with a volt/ohm meter. Look closely at all quick disconnections, look for melting which indicates high resistance. often you have to wire around a faulty multi plug, or replace both sides. Once a connector starts to fail it needs to be replaced.

Be sure the battery is up on water.

Dsc t90 screen backlight spoilt


You need a new screen, unfortunately. Does it light up at all? Have you tried getting a bright flashlight (e.g, a mobile /cell phone camera flash) and shining it into the screen?

I have a 2003 C180 Kompressor - 4matic. Im getting a replace alternator sign but its seems to work fine but im geting also increase in electricity in the car and even disconects and reconects while im


The voltage regulator in the alternator has probably failed. The AH rating of the battery has nothing to do with it. This is why I would never own a MB, too many gadgets that cost a fortune to fix when they fail.

My dash light do not come on


FIrst, spin the brightness knob back and forth, if dirt or corrosion are causing the problem, this cleans the contact area. If that does not resolve it, check the fuses number 7 and 11 just under the dash on drivers side, it has a cover on it that comes off.

If the lights for system check do not come on when the key is turned to run without starting engine, check the fuses number 9 and 5 just under the dash on drivers side.

If this does not correct the issue, and the following- Radio glove box light, ashtray light, ABS light at startup with the other system check lights do work, the bulbs for dash illumination are probably burned out.

if the radio, ash tray and glove box light work and the other system check lights do not- the dash cluster may be seperated from the connector on the back side. or the ground wire for the cluster may not be making contact. The ground wire specific for the dash cluster lights is a black wire with orange trace stripe.

My pictures vary from normal to too bright and/or too dark


Pictures being too bright normally mean that you have direct light shining towards camera. try to change angle of photo or else compensate with flash or lighting

Display dosnt work at all. it plays music fine i just dont see anything on the screen.


look and see if the yellow illumination wire behind the stereo is connected to the power wire, you may not have its lights wired up, this could cause you not to be able to see a display, to test this for sure shine a bright flash light into the face while its playing, if you see some display, this is the problem

My camera is set on autoflash but it flashes even in the bright day- light resulting in over expose, what could be wrong? It takes good pictures at night.


Yes I believe I fixed my problem. I shined a bright flash light at
the light sensing photocell and took pictures with it (no flash).
Then I darkened it, took pictures (it flashed). I did this back and
fourth and it seemed to work although I have not tried it in the
field yet. Thanks for your offer of help and I do think your
rates are reasonable.

Camera Flash & Picture


I just got this camera for Christmas the only way that I know of how to fix it is to change the exposure manually. If the picture is to bright you need a negative exposure, if it is to dark you need a positive exposure. I have noticed that the auto exposure does not get the correct setting that you need for the lighting.

Pictures look like a bright light has been turned on.


Hello, posted by clowrie When I take a photo (doesnt matter if I am nusing flash or not) the photo is all white washed and there are fine lines along the entire picture. Does any one have any suggestions for what may be the issue? Comment by clowrie, Because of your help I was able to findout that Sony is aware of the CCD problem and is reparing the problem for free. Thanks so much for the help.
