    LAMPF! from parking lamp?

    I have the LAMPF! error displaying on my 2010 GSA, but both low and high beams are fine. The tiny parking lamp is out, which is no big deal, but the error bugs me. I hooked up the GS-911 and got "Short circuit in parking lamp."

    Is that the error you get with a burned out bulb, or am I looking at a wiring issue?

    Should be just a bulb deal.

    Parking Lamp Bulb

    The parking lamp bulb gave a LAMPF on my 2010 1200r.

    Replace that bulb & see.

    Thanks for all the responses! I'll source the bulb and replace it. Hopefully that was the only issue.

    I found them in stock at AutoZone and their cross-reference book even lists BMW motorcycles.

    Thanks. We don't have those in rural Vermont. This will be a phone hunt followed by a two hour ride to the Big City unless it's a beautiful day like yesterday when I ended up in Maine.

    So... your bike has a lamp problem AND a navigational problem? LOL

    A replacement lamp should fix it as others have mentioned.

    Well, there was this road that looked interesting. And then there was another one, and another. And the sun was shining. And the tank was full...

    I believe it's a simple "W5W" 5 watt bulb - Walmart has them in stock (locally to me at least)

    Question: Pete says that his GS911 shows a short ... But "typically", when a bulb blows, it's "Open", though on rare occasion the arms that support the filament may warp and touch each other. So... can the GS911 tell the difference between a short and an open? Or will it display the same fault for both conditions?
    If it can, I'd look very closely at the socket, too.

    The GS911 does not actually measure anything, it just accesses and reports information from the bike's computers, which do not report the type of fault. When I was experimenting with some (cheap) LED lights, problems were difficult to troubleshoot because the circuit was shut down by both shorts and opens.
