Intermittent Electrical Short

United States

#1 May 31, 2009
I have a 2001 Guzzi V-11 Sport. Recently, I have noticed that occasionally, the tach, the low fuel indicator light, the headlight, and the rear break light don't work at all times. They all malfunction together and come back together. While this happens, all other electrical features including the parking lights in the headlight work properly. I have inspected the fuses and battery connections; they all seem to be in proper order. Can anyone give me an idea what could be the problem?

recently my Cali EV 2000 happen some problem like yours, on highway the front light turns off and the low idle indicator lamp goes down together, in inspection, the fuse front light broke down and the alternator don't charge the battery, just change the fuse and everything be ok. IŽll do another electrical inspection on wire, soon I let you know what happened.
