Does anyone know why my front indicators are permanently on with my new Msx uk spec ?
Does anyone know why my front indicators are permanently on with my new Msx uk...
All MSXs do it. Meant to be a safety feature...but I find it did the complete opposite. Cut the wire with the tracer to stop it
It is a safety feature as my headlight keeps packing up so you need these to be seen
Thanks everyone, phoned the dealer, euro 4 compliant, the Africa twins have it too.
Headlight packing up ?
Yep. Stall it and it goes off but lately just doesn't start. Didn't work at all yesterday
Ian have you had it back to the dealers ?
Not yet. It was to intermittent and they are a long way away so wasn't going to bother till it got worse.
It's a feature there's nothing wrong with them they are all like that :)
Ian I'd noticed you'd wrapped the forks mate so maybe somethings loose ? Did you take the headlight off before it started happening ?
Its a feature not a bug :p
You could just change them for smoked lenses, dual orange/white leds and the relay.
I wrapped them in the bike so didn't disturb the light but I have had it off and unplugged and back on to see if it would help and for a few days it seemed to fix it but now it's not working again. I think it might be happening when it's wet so will see how I go with that idea. I wonder if there is a relay that works it and tells it when to switch on and off so may need to unplug that.
Ian as you say water could cause, also a slightly loose connection as these vibrate quite a bit. I've used acf50 on electrical connectors in the past over winter as it repels water, also covering them in a plastic sleeve and wrapping both ends, really you should get it in at the dealers when you can but at least notify them.
I have done the exact same as Philip! Much better than having running orange DRLs lol
If they go wrong everybody thinks youre turning and pulls out on you :(
It must be a transformer......
