My Shimano hub lights are not working correctly. All help greatly appreciated. First time I've had a bike with lights like this.
Specifically, the rear works all the time. But the front is basically out of action.
It worked on the way to an appointment, then on the way back it didn't. I accidentally pulled the cable out of the plastic housing when I tried to rectify it (in the rain in the dark...) and so no lights at all on the way home.
The next day I reconnected the copper wire in the plastic contecter and the rear worked, but not the front. Strangely it decided to come on after about 2km riding, on the way home - and repeated this pattern for the next three days. Start the day dead, then come back to life after the journey home, just as I turn into my street. But now it's even stopped doing that.
So... Is the front simply "not charged", is that even possible, and if so, can I recharge it with a battery or something?
Or, as I read on an other thread, have I reconnected the cables in the wrong order and it's now shorting?
Or, something else?
Thanks for the help folks.
