SUPPLEMENT
d. Start the engine and note the voltmeter
reading. It should be 2-4 volts with the
engine running.
e. If the voltmeter readings are not as
specified, the wiring between the meter
and the ignition coil is defective.
3. KZ550-HI only Check the meter switch
that controls tachometer/voltmeter function:
a. Disconnect the 3 leads from the switch
(green, red and yellow).
b. Connect an ohmmeter or test light
between the green and red terminals
on
the switch. With the switch released,
there
should
be
continuity
(low
resistance, test lamp lights). There
should be
no
continuity (infinite
resistance, test lamp unlit) when the
switch is depressed.
c. Connect the ohmmeter or test lamp
between the red and yellow teminals
on
the switch. With the switch released,
there should be no continuity. With the
switch depressed, there should be
continuity.
d. Connect the ohmmeter or test lamp
between the green and yellow terminals
on the switch.
There should be no
continuity at either switch position.
e. If the switch does not perform as
described, replace it and repeat the test.
If the switch performs as described, the
tachometer/voltmeter unit is defective
and must be replaced.
SOLID-STATE GAUGE AND
WARNING LIGHT PANEL
(KZ550-HI)
This
computerized
instrument
panel
monitors sidestand position, engine oil level,
battery electrolyte level and fuel level. A
liquid crystal display (LCD) continuously
shows fuel level; other LCDs light up or flash
when the computer detects a problem in one
of
the
monitored
systems.
A
red
light-emitting diode (LED) flashes when there
is a problem in one of the monitored systems.
The LCDs and LED should light when the
ignition switch is first turned ON to show that
they are operational. If any one of the LCDs
or the LED does not light when the ignition
switch is first turned ON, yet others are
functional, there is an internal fault and the
entire instrument panel must be replaced. It
cannot be disassembled for repair.
If none of the LCDs or LED light when the
ignition is first turned ON, there may be a
problem in the bike's wiring harness. Start
with Step 1 of the following troubleshooting
procedure.
If one or more of the individual warning
systems does not work, yet others do, that
system's sensor may be defective. Perform the
appropriate
tests
in
the
following
troubleshooting procedure according to what
system is at fault.
If these steps do not pinpoint the problem,
repeat them (where possible) while riding the
bike. The problem may only show up under
actual operating conditions. If the sensors all
test okay and the bike's wiring is in good
condition, replace the instrument panel.
1. Make sure that battery voltage is reaching
the panel:
a. Disconnect the panel's red, 6-pin
connector.
b. Connect a voltmeter positive lead to the
brown wire terminal on the harness side
of the connector.
c. Connect a voltmeter negative lead to the
blacWyellow wire terminal on the
harness side of the connector.
d. Turn the ignition switch ON. The
voltmeter
should
indicate
battery
voltage. If it does and none of the panel
lights work, replace the panel. If there is
no voltage reading or a low reading,
check
the
battery
and
wiring
connections.
2. Check the wiring between the panel and
the various connectors:
a. Disconnect
the panel's red, 6-pin
connector.
b. Using a voltmeter and ohmmeter, make
the test connections shown in Table 20.
Be sure to use the correct test
instrument and measurement range.
c. If any of the readings are not as shown in
Table 20, repair the wiring between the
