Exclamation 03 Instrument panel problems

Hey all I'm new to this forum - recently bought a used 03' CBR600RR (in RED)

Last night while riding I noticed the right blinker signal works intermitently and the same with the high beam light. Is something lose or possibly a short?

Another pain in as well is the fuel gague seems to be off , after I fill it up it says there is only 5 of 7 blocks. Which also plays a role with the low fuel blinking. I usually will burn about 1.5 gallons of fuel until it starts to blink.

When I fill it up, I'll fitll it to the metal cage for the cap.

Is it a possibility that my instrument panel is all together messed up?

Bike still has 2 years left on the warantee.



Any help would be great! THanks!

check the plug to the gauge cluster, they do tend to vibrate loose sometimes.

Where is this located....I just got the bike a few days ago so bear with me, I tried to trace some of the wires to see if anything is loose...gauge seems to be covered pretty well?

yes it is, the plug is on the back side of the gauge cluster, and you almost have to remove the whole upper fairing to get to it... in fact, it might just be easier if you do.

I was able to grab my younger sister and coach her into pushing the plug into the gague cluster. Now the only thing left to get fixed is the fuel problem.

It will blink that I'm empty...but then it will re-adust and say I have 2 bars left. Sometimes it even does some funky 'show of bars' where it will light them all up and then they will all dissapear slowly...i'm guessing this is what is supose to happen when you are allll out of fuel?


Anyone?

You mean like this? If that's the case it sounds like your in tank fuel sensor may be bad or you could still have a short somewhere else.

But the rest of the guage is working properly now?

Read those two paragraphs. It could still be in the wiring harness somewhere.

All the lights work properly on gauge.

The bike is still under warantee, but I don't want to take it to the local dealership if it's an easy fix in under an hour.

If it's the fuel sensor take it in. You'll have to pull the tank and the entire fuel pump assembly out in order to replace it. Atleast you have narrowed it down for them so maybe they'll only keep it for a month or two.

I had a sending unit just up and **** on me on my 04, it wouldnt read correctly, so I took it to the stealer. They tested it and found it went bad, warranted it and bent the new one when they installed it :) I cracked it open and fixed the new one myself, they just bent the float bracket.
