Dying Multifunction Display


TEDZ

Recommended Posts

I have a 2013 R1200RT with a bad Multifunction Display. It was fine Tuesday, but today on start up the lower half flickered.  After stopping for lunch, the lower half was out.  Only about 12,000 miles on the bike, it's stored in a garage and kept on a battery tender.  One year old battery.  I noticed a bad harness connection in the faring.  Maybe related,  but I don't think so.  Am I looking at a new Instrument Cluster?  The song?  It's A Bad Thing.

It does look like yours is failing but you can at least try a few things.

 

If you have any other added electronics, added non-oem headlight,  or added-on electrical devices  on that motorcycle then try disconnecting those as a test. 

 

You might also try a half-hour battery disconnect as a test.

 

You might also try disconnecting then re-connecting the dash connector just to see if reseating the connector helps.
