Problems with Control Panel Empty
PostSubject: Problems with Control Panel   Problems with Control Panel I_icon_minitimeThu Apr 21, 2022 11:26 am

I have the following problem: Whenever it's cold in the morning, the turn signal doesn't work, neither on the right nor on the left. When the sun shines on it, at around 20 degrees Celsius, everything works as it should. Why can that be. I've already sprayed in contact spray, that helped for a day. Do I need the whole control panel again?

I had trouble a few years back with my turn signal lever sticking and not working right. My solution was to spray some WD-40 in there and work it back and forth several times. I haven't had a problem since.

Yes, when those switches get cold (40°F/4-5°C) the lubricating grease gets very stiff and the electrical connection can become spotty because of that. If you “toast”* the switch body with a heat gun then work the switch back & forth the heat will “dissolve” that solidified grease and the switch will “live happily ever after”.







*Heat it, not just warm it up.

What a great tip Tim. Hadn't thought about using heat to get the old grease moving.

Thankfully I don't live where it gets THAT cold... Like Kismet I have used electronic contact spray (tuner spray) in mine. Haven't tried WD-40.
