Odd Electrical Issue...1996 SE
1996 SE with 202,598 miles....Just started this morning. Took the Wing out for a ride and noticed that both of my blinker dash lights were on..but dimly. When I tried to use the turn signals, I would get no response. Also noticed that my saddlebag light and brake lights were out and brake light did not work!..HOWEVER..this was only when the bike was IN GEAR. In neutral, the turn signals worked, brake lights work, the saddlebag light were on and all seemed good. Turned around and went home to troubleshoot.
Before the questions begin:
1. Saddlebag, trunk, ring of fire, side trunk lights, hand control lights and side lights on fairing were changed to LED / LED strips 2years ago and have been working fine since.
2. Some of the bulbs in the dash were change to LED..still working, changed over about the same time as above.
3. Nothing new..except a new outlet for my GPS has recently been install (on a completely separate ckt).
4. As I said the bike was running fine yesterday when I took a run to the store....now today I have issues
I'm assuming the issue may be a bad relay (#2 or #3)..but I have rotated multiple relays with no change...go in gear...light go out!
Will take any thoughts ...suggestions
