My hazard lights push switch and the rev switch stick. What is a good lubricant for Gl1800 switches. What chemicals to avoid.
ThanksSome will argue this, but WD-40 will usually free up the switches temporarily, however, it's best to take the housings apart and clean the actual switch, then apply some dielectric grease.
Thanks Snowmoer. I agree that the dried grease needs to be removed. FYI, WD-40 is not a lubricant. It was designed as water displacement, therefore its name. The 40th experiment is what we use today. WD-40 will tend to wash out lubricants including grease. If these efforts don't work then by all means disassemble and lubricate with new grease. I am waiting to see if WD-40 and CDC work before taking the switch apart. Thank you for your reply and excellent advise.The CRC works great on the volume, channel, and speed up and down switches. These are dry switches and just need the contacts cleaned when they stop working.
For the hazard and reverse switches, you need to pull them apart like Dennis said. You need to remove the old grease that gets sticky and replace it with fresh dielectric grease. Same goes for the turn signal switch. There are small springs and the part that locks the switch on that stop moving when the grease gets sticky. Spray lube/cleaner is just a band aid for these switches. In no time you will be right back to where you are now.
so has anyone ever done a video on the Honda Goldwing/F6b on these sticky switch's fixSome will argue this, but WD-40 will usually free up the switches temporarily, however, it's best to take the housings apart and clean the actual switch, then apply some dielectric grease.
