K1200RS Digital Display problem
My 2002 K1200RS's Digital display (Clock/Gear indicator LCD) has simply packed up over the weekend and fails to display anything at all. Worked on last ride a week ago and just doesn't work at all now. Never went intermittent or inaccurate, just stopped displaying.
I've checked the fuses and have determined that there is 12V to the connector behind the instrument console to the LCD when the ignition is turned on.
Having spoken to my (not so) local BMW technician he's sugged that there should be a permanent 12V supply to the clock (i.e. even when ignition is off). This is not happening, none of the 6 connectors is live when the ignition is off.
He further suggested I remove the tank and look for corroded/damaged cables in the electrical connections box/ radiator area. I cannot see any problems here either.
I have reseated all connections but no success.
I am now wondering if the "load relief" relay may be at fault here, but I'm unsure of its function.
Any thoughts / ideas would be appreciated, I'm about to start studying the wiring diagrams but am not hopefull.
