hello forum...... When I sorned my gt11 last may I had electrical problems in that the horn wouldn't switch of once activated. (engine running) if I flashed main beam I lost my rev counter and main beam led was weak. Plus the ignition wires were all cut up and spliced back together, they looked a mess.
So this last month I began to strip out the dash and all around it to change the wiring loom. The new loom is new old stock and had all the connections intact.
The light switch connector on the new loom is black, whilst on the old loom it had a red connector. my original switch had a couple of spade connectors oriented 90 degrees so didn't fit. I have spare light switches and found one that fits and seems to function ok. However after refitting the dash, console and instrument binnacle all is not well. When I switch on the light switch and run the engine the lights go out on the instrument binnacle the rev counter stops working and the new digital clock fades away.
I have looked on the web for fixes to these symptoms, plus my neighbour said it looks like the ignition is taking away the ground/ earth from the binnacle instruments. I've run a new earth from the connectors next to the fuse box straight to the rocker cover. No change, so I then spliced a new connection with the brown wire feeding the binnacle.... No change.
I'm at a loss for an explanation on this, as I had some symptoms before replacing the old loom.
Don't suppose there is a member living near Burnley who is savvy with electrics????
