Thanks for the suggestions.I'm taking them one by one. Relays are easiest so I replaced and not the solution.Neutral switch is next. Being a bling'd EV-T it has the chrome cover hiding the switch and aggravating me. Can't figure how to get it off to gain access. Is there a method? Right now it's fiddle, cuss, beer, repeat. There has to be something I'm doing wrong, what?Thanks.Walt
I had to pull the one on my 03 EV in a rainstorm on a mountain road, it was a royal pain to get off but eventually it does come loose. Then the problem turned out to be the sidestand switch, which is much easier to get at. I cut the wire to the sidestand switch where it runs up the frame on the front left side, spliced the wires together and haven't had any problems in the 10 years since doing that. Good luck!
A couple rides ago, everything worked as it should. When parking I put it in to neutral, the light came on and light came on and when I put the sidestand down it didn't kill the engine. As I said - this is intermittent and frustrating. My biggest fear is being stranded along the road somewhere remote.I've rotated the bling cover enough to be able to wiggle the connection to the neutral switch - same issues remain.Stu's post made me thing that I may be looking in the wrong area. Does the sidestand switch affect whether the neutral light will come on?I'm totally intimidated by the electrical stuff and appreciate the help and suggestions from the WG community - thank you all.Walt
The neutral and side stand are wired in parallel, they can easily be bypassed if they fail. When I had an EV I sketched out a simple drawing that showed where all the wires connect to the relays, if I knew exactly which schematic I could do one for you.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
That would be much appreciated. What do you need from me? Schematic?Thanks!
I've seen that style switch fail. Not real cheap for what it is. I THINK your 2003 has the new style switch. Screw it out, and try to clean it. And of course make sure the connector is tight.It is wired so the sidestand switch does NOT turn on the light. But the neutral switch does allow the sidestand to go out with the motor running. There is a diode between the neutral switch and the sidestand if I recall.
