Howdy again folks, since it's too cold in Tn. to ride(for me) I have been trying to get self schooled on my 1800GW trike..I was checking out the switches and buttons and when I pushed the cruise on, the button won't come back out, got to the flasher button, pushed it in ,flashers come on but the button will not pop back out..I sprayed some lub. and still stuck. I have some graphite that I will try. Just wondering is this something for mech. to fix, or if any of you guys know something I should try?...Thanks, Ride Safe

WD40, then a little air from one of the compressed cans of computer key board cleaners.
I would not use any graphite on switches!

Dust and dirt accumulate in the switches and they stick from time to time. Compressed air will help to clean then out. Lubs can work, but leave a film that can attract more dirt and dust.

Any decent electrical contact cleaner should do the trick, definitely no graphite though:eek:

As far as the cruise button, spraying around the perimeter, trying to penetrate behind it , as best you can , and " working it " may do the trick. The Hazard switch may be a different story. That one would best be cleaned / lubed from the underside of the panel it is attached to.

I did not know that about the 1800:confused:
Like was said above a good electrical contact cleaner sprayed in around the button/switch while working the switch. Once it is free a good flushing again with the contact cleaner followed by a blast of canned air to get the gunk out.

Dan: patting the top of your head and rubbing your belly while whistling Dixie should do it.:eek:
Actually I prefer the electrical contact cleaner;)
