Front directional lights and instrumentation lights go on after ignition turned off

Fellow Riders:

Concours 2001, ZG1000A16 .... Does J-box need rebuild or hot wire?

Is the problem a failed J-box or a wire becoming energized on its own. Heres the scenario...

Front directional lights and instrumentation lights go on after ignition turned off. This is an intermittent problem that only seems to occur after bike is very warm/hot after a long ride. When the lights do comeback on, it happens about 5 to 10 minutes after bike is switched off. when the lights come on on their own, the lights will go off when the ignition is switched On then Off. Already had to buy a new battery last week when the lights came on and i forgot to check them so they drained the battery beyond it being able to take a charge.

The ignition switch was replaced and problem still exists.

I think there is a wire intermittently being energized? There is only a small amount of wires exposed so before i start to tear open the wiring harnesses, do you have any suggestion?

In advance, Thank You

Update

This is where I am at.....

I checked the wires around the jbox all looks good. I put the bike back together to let the problem re-occur. When the lights go back on by themselves after the ignition is turned off (after a 5 to 10 minute time delay), then Ill tap the junction box to see what happens. From the Kawi forums I got a few replies saying to tap the jbox and even get more aggressive and hit it pretty good with the handle of a hammer. If the lights go off after the jbox is hit then they say the jbox is the culprit and needs replacement.

However, what I will do first is after I find the lights come on Ill move around the exposed wiring harnesses under the fairing. If the lights go out or blink then I can continue to isolate what wire in what wire harness is at fault. If this has no effect, Ill pull fuses at the jbox, one at a time, till the lights go out in order to isolate the circuit fault.

Last note is that I took the bike for a small run 30 miles each direction. The lights did not come on from either ride. Wont be back on the bike till either tomorrow night or Sunday so time will tell.

Really appreciate everyone's technical support.
