2015 FX loses 12 volt power, then it comes back
« on: May 25, 2017, 11:39:23 PM »

So, coming to work this morning I noticed that the turn signal wasn't working. I checked the head light and it wasn't working also. About 2 hours after I parked it I turned it back on and all the lights worked except for the low beam. I smacked the housing with my hand and the light came back on. Any suggestions on where to look first? Or could the DC-DC converter have an intermittent fault?

Some corrosion on plugs/contacts I guess. Disconnect them, clean them with electronics cleaner, and put them back together.

disconnect, clean, then put dielectric grease on them so it doesnt happen again.....

Okay, I took off all the plastic and pulled apart every connector I could find. Put dielectric grease on the connectors. Lights worked fine. The next day they didn't. Cycled the key 4 times, still nothing. Took the gas bike, came back several hours later and the lights worked again. It just sat in the garage. Any ideas?

Have you checked the AGC fuse in the DC to DC?

Where is the converter? I recognized the charger, and the controller, but I don't know what the converter looks like.
