No. It will still flash.
Found this on Nyroc's site:
Prairie 650 - Flashing 2wd 4wd lights
by nyroc, 2005-02-23
Page 38 of manual says:
flashing 2wd/4wd indicator lights signal a malfunction of the kawasaki engine brake control system or the selectable 2wd/4wd system. A flashing interval of 0.5 seconds indicates a malfunction with the 2wd/4wd actuator, a 1 second interval indicates the KEBC actuator is malfunctioning, a 2 second interval indicates both actuators are malfunctioning.
Apparently, the fuses under the seat could be to blame for many people's flashing lights. So, before you waste time and energy diagonosing problems with the 4x4 selector and KEBC, try this tip from OldmanWheeler:
"Pull out each fuse and take a pair of pliers and just barely twist the ends of the fuse. I also took a small screw driver and tweaked the clips in the box. The idea is to make sure the fuse fit real tight. Once you have a tight fit use a small screw driver to place die-electric grease between the fuse contacts. Once that is done I filled the cap, closed it and filled all openings. Once this was done I never had any more problems. According to the Kaw person who told me how to fix this, it's been a problem, especially
I also found this, on Nyroc's site, on how to rewire so that light will not stay flashing. I am too lazy and have just gotten used to it...
FourwheelFurry sent me this to put in the tech tips. It lets you disable the KEBC and still use the 2wd/4wd lights in the dash. The following all came from FourwheelFurry. Note that he used a dual throw relay and wired the light to the pole that is contacted when the relay is not energized. If you use a single throw relay, the light will be opposite(wrong).
I discovered this fix to the 2X4/4X4 light some time ago myself. This is a
GREAT way to fix for cheep!! I have been running NO KEBC and my 2X4/4X4
light works exactly as it should.
The relay is a simple 12Volt automotive style 5 prong relay. It can be
purchased at many auto parts stors or like I did, gotten out of a junked car
First... the green/white wire (that you are supposed to clip), if you ground
this wire the 4X4 will light up on the dash.
Second... the 4X4 switch (mounded on the handle bar) is a 2 wire switch to
ground. When it is in 2X4 the switch is closed (grounded) when it is in 4X4
the switch is open (ungrounded).
Third... If you connect these two wires together (green/white and green)
this will command the 4X4 to light on the dash WHEN the switch is in 2X4
mode and the dash will light 2X4 when the switch is in 4X4 mode (it operates
Solution... I wired a simple 5 prong relay to reverse this operation an now
it works perfect. This only reports what the switch sends and not what the
controller is actually doing but I like to know when it is in 4X4 and this
is good enough.
The relay is wired as follows:
Terminal 85 - Brown wire from ignition switch plug 12V + key-on
Terminal 86 - Green wire from 4X4 handle bar switch
Terminal 87 - nothing
Terminal 87A - Green/White wire going to the dash 4X4 indicator
Terminal 30 - Chassis ground
I hooked up the relay in the front under the front fendors as it was easy to
get to all of the connections from the switch and dash and also ignition
12V. It is also well hidden however, this can be done under the seat as all
of the wires listed go to the controller.
