Dash lights playing up

Post by davidchef »

Odd things happening with my dash warning lights, when I use the indicators the ! warning light flashes with the indicators, when I apply main beam all the warning lights glow. The obvious earth connections in that area have all good connections. Anyone come across this behaviour and found a solution?

I would start by checking the plugs going into the binnacle unit.

Hi Capncol, I've had the binnacle unit out and checked the plugs - all is well.

Just a word of warning. If you end up replacing the binnacle, you can corrupt the mileage display. Try and get one as close to your mileage as poss.
