Hey
Welcome.

Itís been a few years since I had a GT250 but what you are deceiving could be a blown fuse.

Thatís a pretty easy place to start anyway.

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply, I have checked all I think, the 6 in the glove and two in bay?

Sounds like it could be your indicator switch, the contacts are prone to oxidising. Try removing the switch and cleaning the contacts or simply spray some electrical contact cleaner into it.

Why do you think the indicator switch would affect the lcd then mate? Are they linked? Sorry to be thick

The dashboard has a horrible flexible printed circuit 'board' that can have nasty connector problems. Careful examination and delicate repair may be needed, but if you're lucky just a re-seat of the connectors will cure it. If that's the case, then add some dielectric grease to the connectors to prevent a recurrence.

Thanks mate but mine seems to be extremely not flexible, its an actual pcb, with no signs at all of anything rusty or shorted or dry
