Dash lights

Went to work today, and when I got to work I noticed that the high beam indicator and both turn signal lights were on. The turn signals both work and the bulbs are ok. When the turn signals are flashing the high beam also flashes. High and low beams both work. No other issues except the dash lights don't work, and they did this morning. Any thoughts? I plan to hook up the gs911 tomorrow morning and see what if anything it says.

On my 2000 k1200 LT

I would suspect a bad earth which is feeding back into the cluster

Re: Dash lights

Check for melted wires or corroded ground (brown wires) up in the headlight area this is usually what causes a high beam light to flicker

Re: Dash lights

Update: all lights work - high beam, low beam, turn signals, flashers etc. went looking for a bad ground. So far found none. When the bike is running - the turn signal dash bulbs(x2) and high beam indicator bulb is on constantly. Only the dash indicators, not the actual bulbs. When making a turn and signaling both the appropriate signal indicator and the high beam indicator flash at the same time. Also, there are no dash background lights. All the dash indicators that come on when the key is turned to on seem to work. Headlights are standard, no hid.. I called several service departments (none in Rochester) and no one has seen this. I am stumped.....

Re: Dash lights

does it have a trailer plug on the back? I still think it's is an earth problem, dash back ground lights I believe i read somewhere, have a light sensor they come on at night.
