1995 R100RT.Went for a ride ,all was well, except that the rear park/license plate light was not working. Opened up,changed bulb, still not working. The front park light does not work either for no evident(to me at least!)reason.
Looked at it again today and the fuse on that circuit is blown and blows with every attempt to switch on the ignition.No ignition lights, horn, lights. Disconnected that plug from the rear that carries the rear park light, brake light and turn signals. Fuse does not blow, but no ignition light display etc.
While fiddling and before I discovered the fuse was blown,I heard an odd noise from underneath the gas tank,as though compression were escaping and for some reason I thought the starter relay had blown? No smoke ,no smell, no visibly damaged wires.
Last thing I did before I finished fiddling last week was applied front and rear brakes to ensure the brake light was working. Engine off, switch on.It was.
The battery is showing 12 v,so it has not been drained by an open circuit.
Any testing or troubleshooting suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
