Trip Computer Changing Readouts On Its Own
My trip computer seems to be changing readouts on its own a lot lately. By that, I mean that I usually leave the readout on Trip A, which I reset with every gas fillup. I've noticed in the past few weeks that when I start the bike, it sometimes shows the odometer, instead; I could've sworn that it stays on the same function you left it on, when you shut down the bike and then re-start it.
I went for a short ride today, and it seemed to be changing the readout about every mile, or less, sort of cycling through the various values on its own. What was different today, BTW, is that it was 47 degrees out, and I had the seat, grips, and my heated liner on ("medium" heat). That's a lot of current draw, so I wondered whether that contributes to anything. (Nope, I haven't checked my battery terminals for tightness since maybe April, at which time I applied the official torque to them, after adding some farkles.) OTOH, I plugged in my Battery Tender Jr. when I got home, and it was "green" immediately (which means that the battery wasn't low, which in turn means, I believe, that it wasn't being drained, as a result of insufficient alternator output or because it wasn't connected well).
This may be an issue for the dealer come next spring. In the meantime, has anyone else noticed the trip computer's cycling through its different readings, more or less on a whim?
