Clocks going blank
« on: May 27, 2020, 06:01 PM »
Evening all , I've got an intermittent problem with the clocks on my 09 650 . The rev needle and the main display dont work one minute,  the next they do . Doesnt seem to matter if you move the wires or anything , it just does not when it wants . The back light and all the indicator light work . Any ideas ? Thanks in advance .

Would appear to be a loose or dirty connection probably the connecting plug in the back of the panel.

 Its a multi pin so best unplug it, spray with electrical contact cleaner and give it a blast of compressed air.
 A smear of dialectric grease over the pins is a good idea too.

Some MK1s used to suffer from fraying wires in the harness because of rubbing around the steering tube head stock thingy ,
might be worth a look.

It might require closer inspection as mine was extremely hard to spot but was there under very close inspection.

Thanks all , non of the above works unfortunately.  Ive tried everything but no luck,  unplug it and plug it back in and it works for 20 mins,  go back to it and nothing .

 Sounds like the clocks themselves then ...ouch  :003:.

 Nothing else acting up? All grounds clean and tight? Might be worth doing some continuity tests in the harnesses, but I don't know where to suggest.
