990 Adv - Pass/Flash button

The button/switch which flashes the main beam doesn't seem to be working.

Is this a known issue/easy fix?

Check the bulb? It also doesn't work when the high beam is on. If those aren't the problems, I'd pop open the cover to see if it is getting power.

Cheers for the reply. The flash uses the same bulb as high beam does it not?

If it does my high beam is ok. So must be something to do with the switch. I will try take a look at the switch tonight.

The only difference is that with flash to pass, the low beam stays on in addition to the high beam. It's a better way to get more light on tight roads at night.

Or you could run new wires to it and make it a contact for your garage door opener!

Or rewire it to operate your mode on your speedo instead of getting a trip master switch it works great

This isn't a bad idea actually! Any info/guides on it that you know of? Would be very handy.

I don't understand what you're asking. When low beam is on and you use the flash to pass button you get more light.

You want a whole analysis of that???
