I have a problem with the indicators on my 2015 MP3-500ie. At first I noticed that the right side indicators weren't working but now none of them work, except occasionally. The fuses are all fine. I have checked the indicator switch on the handlebar and it seems to be working and the wires seem to have power. The next thing I want to check is the indicator controller but I can't find much information about it. It's made by Guilera (who didn't reply to my question) and the P/N is 018610P2. Does anyone have any information about this or any suggestions of how to test it? Or any other suggestions for what could cause this?

Thanks

I had exactly this problem way back on my '07 Fuoco (MP3 500). The controller is at the left rear, under the side and right in the path of detritus being thrown up by the rear wheel. So the permanent +12V feed's pin on the connector just corrodes into blue/green dust.

Luckily there's an unused pin right above it that is internally connected to first one, so you can cut the wire back, add a few cm, and solder that to the unused pin. You have to cut away some of the connector housing to get to this.

Then smother it in dielectric grease, then wrap self-amalgamating tape around that to keep the elements out.
