I got 99 problems, and a fuse is one...
First off, I wrecked my bike. So I have LOTS of problems to deal with. But I was hoping you guys could help me figure this first problem out to get me one step closer to it operating again. Just to get a general understanding, its mainly front end damage. Lights, intake, BAS, gauge cluster... pretty much everything forward of the key is missing or broken.
METER ILLUM TAIL fuse keeps blowing. But its kind of confusing. Earlier today I was trying to install a new gauge cluster. Before I hooked it up, I'd turn the key, and the tail light would light up just fine. Then I hooked up the cluster, and POP! fuse blows. Replace fuse, POP again. Every LED on the cluster is dead EXCEPT the neutral blue light. I wont even mention that the bike wont start, or that the fuel pump doesnt turn on either, because Im sure those are other problems related to the BAS or other mechanical failure.
But why do you guys think this is popping? Im blanking on the name, but could it just be cluster connection piece causing the short?
I've got a long road ahead of me to get this baby working again, but every solved problem gets me that much closer. Thanks guys
