GL1500 Time Keeps Changing - Any Advice Please??
 
Right. You may have seen from another post of mine that I have recently changed the LCD screen on my GL1500 for a new one supplied by Tanin Autoelectronix. Initially I had an issue with this and the 'bulb test' sequence not working but discovered that there was a fault with the suspension increase / decrease switch, which I have now disconnected for the time being.

Everything seemed to be working as it should so I reassembled the dash back into the bike. I have now discovered, to my extreme annoyance, that the time keeps changing unexpectedly. Not a major problem but something I just didn't expect.

Any ideas anyone?

Probably there is a loose, corroded or bad cantact/wire somewhere on the circuit.
And that might be the previous problem as well.

Are your motorcycles purchased with known electrical problems or do they appear after ownership?:?

Einstein will tell you that time will slow down as you approach the speed of light. Maybe keep it to the speed limit for a while. :cheesygrin:

Einstein will not tell you anything. He's dead. However, if you head over to Mozart's grave, you may hear him decomposing........

Don't really understand why you asked this question, but I can tell you that I didn't know about the issue with the clock has I couldn't read the LCD screen prior to it's replacement.

DBohrer. I did check this the other day, when I had the initial issue with a blank LCD screen, and intend to test it again today, if the weather will allow? Other than that, I was going to dismantle the whole thing again and clean the LCD contacts as detailed in the other post. Very annoying after reassembly, but I have to no other option if the backup fuse is okay :praying:
