Dead Dashboard??

Went to ride my '12 990 adventure yesterday... and the dashboard is completely dead.

The backlight comes on, and the ABS light, but that's it. No self check, no tach reading, nothing. The bike still starts and runs great.

This winter it did get the battery drained, twice. Sat in a -20F garage for a few months. I didn't replace the battery, just put it on a trickle charger for a while and it's been fine.

First time I rode this season the dash went out on me, but I pulled over, shut off the bike, and when I started it back up everything was good to go. The only other thing I can think of is I rode through some pretty heavy rain a couple of days ago.

Any thoughts on how I might fix the dash? Do I need a new instrument cluster?

Ck your fuses. Something like this happened to me when we accidentally shorted one of the acc taps.

I did just wire in a GPS to ACC2, but it still works and has been wired in for a couple of weeks. Fuses look fine to me. I even replaced ACC1/Clock fuse even though it was not blown.

Happened to me once after I (stoopidly) used a pressure washer on the dash. Came back when it dried out.
? get some di-electric grease on the connections.

This happened to me twice..... ('12 990). First time only the speedo failed, control lights still worked. Dash was replaced under warranty. Half a year later it failed again, just like on your bike only the ABS light worked.

Of course all obvious things were checked, to no avail. So, again a new dash. My dealer noticed the last dash had a new part number, so maybe KTM updated it.

Apparently the print plates are a bit weak, they tend to come loose. We openend the failing dash, pressed the print firmly in position. After that it worked for a short while before failing completely.

So, my guess is you too need a new dash
