I did a very, very bad thing... and really need some help.
2011 WR450F. I was attempting to wire a neutral light into the switched plug behind the headlight, and forged a makeshift connector to fit the existing spade connectors in the plug. Everything looked great, but when I turned on the power it kind of sparked, then I lost power in the display. It looks like my connector spread too wide and touched a neighboring pin. I now have zero power up front.
The main fuse checks out ok, but somehow I've lost all power to the main switch and multi-function display. I have checked the service manual, as well as followed the cables, but can't find an inline fuse or other reason for losing power. I'm lost here, and really hoping someone can help me understand what I've done, and how I can fix it. I have my first big ride of the year planned for tomorrow morning, and praying I didn't blow it (yup, I blew it).
After performing a range of voltage and continuity tests, I have come to the conclusion that my multi-function display is toast. There is a possibility that the main switch is fried, or even some other component, but I'd put my money on the MFD at this point. So, I'm hoping that somebody, somewhere can corroborate my findings.
If this is truly the problem, does anyone have a lonely multi-function display they'd like to sell?
