HI all :bow:

Bit of a problum
Went out to start the nelli and the battery was well down. its not run for a long time and its been bloody clod here. :cool:
Turned the key on, kill switch in the run position and NO DISPLAY OR CLOCK MOVEMENT.. :eek:
Out with the jump leads and she fired more or less straight up but still no display.. :eek:
Battery off and on to the optimiser and it reads down but recoverable. :clap:

Is it just going to be the battery low or have i got a issue :confused:

On the back of your dash there is a large black plug connector. Unplug that and reseat it. It may have wiggled a bit loose. That happened to me once and it reset perfectly never to happen again. I had to take out the screen to get to the plug. You may be able to get to it from underneath.

Thanks friend.
I'll charge the battery for a day or 2 then investigate the back of the clocks as per your instructions. The way my luck is running its not going to be that simple. Think abit of robfm's luck has come my way. :doh:

Need to get a little more technical now.
On page 319 of the workshop manual, you'll find a diagram of the cable end plug. The numbers on that diagram correspond to the numbers on the table below, NOT to the connector pin numbers marked on the connector! The Green / White wire (#1) is actually pin 20, and the red wire (#2) is actually pin 19.

Do you have power available at the dash plug - Pin 19 - a red wire ?
- should have +12V permanently connected, regardless of the switch position.

If SO -

Do you have power at Pin 20 - a Green / white wire - from the Main Switch - when the ignition is ON ?

Many thanks for your help

Went out to the garage today and started nrlli. still no clocks.. Bugger
They light up but no display or temp/rev counter

Left it running to warm up for a short time and when i came back they were working fine :clap: :D

Turned it off then restarted it again and,,,,, bugger and other swear words, No clocks again.
So with this in mind should i be looking at something else before i start to strip the fairings/screen so i can get to the plugs on the rear of my clocks. I can get my hand round the back and have tried wiggling the plug but nothing happened.
:doh:

Sounds like a dodgy connection, but that could be anywhere.

Wiggling the connector isn't enough. You need to remove it & re-seat it. That will wipe the oxides off the contacts.

If that doesn't do the trick, check the voltages, as per my earlier post.

Plugs

I had to completely unplug mine and then plug them back in. I don't know if the few minutes off power allowed some type of cache to clear in its memory or what but it worked. Same exact syptoms as you had mate.

Hi friends :hiya:

Went out to the garage today armed with a fully charged battery and connected it up AFTER a quick rub with sum sand paper on the terminals and battery connections. As soon as i put both leads on the display sprang into life for 1 sec then went off. :eek: Turned the key on, depressed the kill switch and all is well.. Everthing worked, started up as usual and the clocks were fine. Ran it for a while then turned off. Repeated this several times over a few hours and the clocks and display worked every time. :D
So the only thing i can think is that 1 of the 2 earth leads was not making a good enough contact. All seems well now tho, I will try it again tomorrow to make sure though.
Down side is that there does not seem to be any work for the taking and Beni may well have to go to make sure the morgage gets paid... Bugger :mad:

Ta friend. I owe you a million for your efforts you are a star..

I can always buy another nelli in time if it has to go. Quite fancy a Tre K as a replacement.

Simon, I'm thinking, that if the fault was dirty battery connections, you wouldn't have been able to start it. The voltage drop would have been MUCH larger during cranking, than what you'd have for normal clock current.
But I've been surprised before, so perhaps this is another of those times.
The good news is, the fault appears to have gone away. Let's hope it stays on holiday.

There are 2 -battery leads. I presume 1 comes from the starter. Wot about the other. Maybe if the 1 that doesnot come back from the starter was not making a connection do you think that could have caused the problem. I did put them back on the other way round to wot they originally came off...

I THINK :confused:
