Unhappy Instrument Problems

A few days ago I noticed that the read out on my instrument panel was switching between ambient temperature and time in an erratic manner. Additionally, the Odometer/Trip Meter/Fuel Consumption Meter/Instrument Panel Light Brightness was advancing without a meter select prompt.

At the suggestion of my dealer, I disconnected the negative lead from the battery overnight to determine if a reboot might help-it did not.

Any suggestions before I address the matter further?

See if the meter switch on the left handlebar housing is stuck.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

So the dealer didn't suggest you bring it in? Big surprise there.

If you DIY I'd say what GW said. Take it apart and maybe the return spring or mechanism is bad/stuck/damaged.
