    Can someone tell me about "LAMPS" on my instrument screen?

    I was mucking around with the instrument settings (2016) and now I see "lamps".

    WTF is this and can I turn it off possibly with Motoscan?

    I think it’s the warning that tells you a bulb has blown or other similar lighting fault.

    Just checked all lighting (headlight, high beam, turn signals, brakes, parking lights) and everything works fine.

    That’s weird. Handbook says yellow warning triangle with “Lamps!” (Plural) is “Rear lights and front lights defective”.  :084:

    Just checked and damn, not that either.

    I just noticed when I turn the bike on:

    LAMPS! isn't there.

    Brake light fine (hand & foot)

    Headlight/High beam/Parking Lights fine.

    Turn signals front/back and emergency flashers fine......but soon as I turn on the turn signals the LAMPS! pops up on my instrument cluster  :084:

    I'm guessing there isn't anything to worry about but it causes OCD issues. :112:

    The lamps may work but may not be pulling the required amount of current...unplug and reconnect them, the see what happens. Have you replaced any bulbs or lamps recently..??

    Haven't done anything bulb wise.

    Do you mean unplug every bulb as in take them out of their socket and put back?

    The headlamp and parking bulbs are the only ones you can "take out"...the rest are LED.

    Leave it alone, if it comes back, now you know to look for a burnt out bulb.
