K1200LTC Cruise Control Quirks

We have recently acquired a 2000 K1200LTC with a Hannigan side car. Splendid rig. However, there are a few quirks that I have not solved yet.

The main problem is that the ABS and Cruise Control freaks out if you go over a bump. I thought that it was just when the cruise was engaged but it did it the other day going over a speed bump (at about 10 miles an hour).

What happens is the ABS light start blinking and if you have cruise engaged then the cruise turns off. It takes a bit of a bump but not much. You can not get rid of the blinking lights until you turn the bike off. Sometimes you can engage the cruise again, but most times that takes a full off too.

I think that there must be a short in the handle bar some where but not sure.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any info would be much appreciated.

Possibles:

1) Rusted cruise control switch contacts on the handlebar

2) wheel spin variation between front and rear being sensed by the ABS sensor, setting off the ABS lights once you go over a bump?

Dave - have you noticed the speedo acting quirky at the same time that the cruise control disengages??

Hi, again, Dave - take a look here for a possible diagnosis and fix.

Bingo! You can fill in the blanks now, Dick, don't keep the po boy waiting

Good thing you're covering the homestead while we're all out -- you've turned into quite the tech guru!

Thanks for the posts I will start checking.

I have not noticed any problems in the speedometer though, so I think I can rule that out.
