GPS and fuses
Got a power connector for satnav on my 1000. Connected this to the battery, plugged in the satnav unit and, after an initial switch-on of the unit, the whole thing cut out - bike and power to satnav. Satnav is working ok, so thats not knackered thankfully. When I turn on the power, I get nothing, not even the sweep of the dials. And my alarm isnt working now. Checked across the battery terminals and its showing 12v, so thats not knackered. Unfortunately I cant get my fat fingers in to check all the fuses, and cant find suitable pliers for the job so Ive called out the breakdown guys and not admitting to any connector ( I have a comms box attached but this has worked trouble free for the whole time Ive had it, about 2 months).
My question is this. Once I get the bike up and running normally, what can I do to stop this happening again. The connector has a 15a fuse in-line, and is designed for motorbike use. Do I need to put a higher rated fuse somewhere in the fuse box. Or any other advice. Anythin g at all please. Thanks in advance.
