I am getting ready to take a trip and I need to disable the servos on my 2005 r1200GS. I might have a bad wiring harness but do not have the money to replace it or the time to search for damaged wires before the trip. My servos and ABS do not work most of the time but sometimes when going slow and applying brakes they will kick in unexpectedly and cause me to come close to dropping the bike(not much fun). How do you suggest I disable them?
A little back ground information on the symptoms I am experiencing.
> ABS and servos work intermittently(mainly not).
> Horn does not work.
> Blinkers do not work.
> Heated hand grips do not work.
> Flashers do not work.
> Trip meter does not work.
> Brake light does not work when front or rear brake peddle is applied(tail light works).
I am picking my pick up from Bloodworth BMW in Nashville next week after they have had it for FOUR MONTHS "repairing" a leaking counterbalance seal for the SIXTH TIME(another story for another time).
Bloodworth's suggestion on how to solve my electrical problems in to replace the wiring harness for $2,000 as a first step and then if that does not solve the problems start replacing other electrical components until they stumble upon the root cause. They don't seem to have the capability or desire to search for a break in the wiring harness and repair it. They would prefer to replace the whole harness and bill me for their lack of diagnostic ability.
I would appreciate your help with how to disable the servos, but secondly I would love suggestions how to diagnosis the other electrical problems.
Thanks for you help.
