    Auto canceling signals

    Good day all,

    Just wondering if there is some sort of "time out" adjustment for the turn indicators ? They were both working fine last year, but I noticed now, the right side cancels itself after about 3 seconds after the turn, but the left side takes about 10 seconds or longer before it quits.
    Any thoughts ??   :112:

    There is no available setting to adjust the amount of time that the Indicators
    remain ON, when in "AUTO" cancelling mode, or to adjust each side to a different setting,
    however, be aware that this is not just a Time based setting, but includes
    a distance element too, as described on Page 49 of the Owners Handbook :

    AUTO - Indicator self cancelling is on.

    In this mode the indicators will self-cancel
    after 65 metres have been travelled and 8 seconds have elapsed.

    If the motorcycle is stationary the indicator will remain on


    Cheers  :821:

    It may be that the turn signal buttons are dirty and this causes resistance. You should clean the turn signal buttons with contact cleaning spray.

    Thank you for the replies, I will try cleaning since they seemed to both be working about the same last year.

    I have my self cancelling always to OFF as they appeared to cancel just when I did not want them too.

    In the UK leaving a left turn signal unintentionally on is a BIG mistake, vehicles tend to pull in front of you when signalling to turn into their road.

    I have a mate who I have followed for miles that is always leaving his indicators on unintentionally.

    My riding plan I think is safer when I tell the bike what to do not it tell me.

    Just my $0.02 worth.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    Dave

    I have mine set to Auto Cancelling mode.

    In Auto Cancelling mode of course, the Indicators can still be cancelled manually,
    and I often / usually cancel the Indicators manually before they Auto Cancel.

    When exiting a Motorway or Dual Carriageway though, where I have usually activated
    the Indicator at the 300 Yards from Exit board, I find that they self cancel too early !

    For me that is a minor inconvenience though, compared to the potential danger
    of leaving an unintended Indicator ON for a prolonged period,
    which cannot happen in Auto Cancelling mode.

    Nice to have the choice of Auto or Manual though !  :028:

    I understand where GarminDave is coming from and what I do is after turning just give the cancel a push after I have made the turn (I have mine on auto-cancel)  :018:
