I've noticed that the indicator stalk, when signaling right, does not always work, my guess is that this stalk caused some sort of short circuit.

I have tried fiddling around with this stalk, but it kept working as normally, only periodically it has this loos contact of some sort.

Don't know if this could even cause the issues i had, just something i noticed. I'll swap the stalk unit anyways since the indicator does not always work as intended 8-)

Hi

The COM2000 won't affect the engine.

But it is common for these to fail, and fitting a replacement usually fixes the problem but some have even managed to repair them.
