    Unusual screen behaviour

    This morning, because of the heavy frost on the screen (it was -4 Deg C), I wanted to lower the screen for better visibility of the also frosty roads. However the screen would only go up. Even when I pressed the down button!  :187: Eventually I allowed it to raise to the limit, and then was able to lower it, but when it hit the bottom limit it immediately returned to it's post-ignition-on position, and I was back where I started insofar as even the "down" button moved it upwards. Going through the cycle again, I was able to lower it from the top limit, and I made sure I stopped before the lower limit where it thankfully remained. After the short hop to work, I've not attempted to move it again, but I've 200 miles to do later today, so I'll check it again then.

    There have been several reports from Members of Screen "sticking" problems,
    which can be found using the Search button.

    This one : Windshield would not move up or down may help.

    There is also a calibration process for resetting the upper and lower limit points of the screen,
    which is usually accomplished using the Dealers Diagnostic computer - connected to the Trophy,
    but is also included as one of many functions that can be performed with the after market DealerTool device.

    Cheers  :821:

    I found that keeping all those pivot points lubricated certainly helps, if they bind then the system thinks that a hand is being trapped between the screen & bodywork, hence why it actually raises whilst you are trying to lower it.

    I've connected my screen controller to the radio - so it raises up & down automatically according to the speed.

    That sounds good. Are you able to share the steps for that? Wiring diagrams etc?

    I've been bad and have to admit my imagination does run wild sometimes  :192:

    Good idea though...?

    I have a system that monitors wind, speed and temperature and provides me with verbal direction on when and by how much to adjust the wind screen. I call it "the wife" :002: and if you try to ignore it you'll be provided with physical cues such as a jab to the ribs or knock to the head.
