    While searching for a fix to my heated grips problem I found this group. What a find! This is Joe from Florence Alabama. Been riding for over 50 years and have live in the south for 4  years. After riding everywhere out west, I am enjoying new road and friend in the south. I have a 17 Trophy SE in black and a 14 Triumph America. Belong to TOMCC (Triumph Owners Motor Cycle Club) as well as Triumph Owners of the Tennessee Valley.

    Did you solve the problem of heated fists?
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    Hi ducatijoe and :400: to the Club !

    You’re right - this IS a brilliant Owners Forum !

    What was the problem with your Heated Grips,
    and have you solved it ?

    Cheers  :821:

    Not yet. It's still under Triumph warranty but I am 3 hours from the 2 dealers (Nashville and Chattanooga TN) in my area.

    Turn on the switch and nothing happens.

    OK - Here's s few things that might save an unnecessary trip to the Dealer :

    It's possible that the heated grips are not actually fitted ! !

    They are an optional addition and not standard equipment.

    The switch on the handlebars is fitted to every Trophy,
    and a lot of Dealers think this means that the actual Heated Grips are also fitted.

    If you were told by the Sales "person" that Heated Grips were fitted,
    and it transpires that they are not, then you have a good case
    for going back to the Dealer for them to be fitted at no extra cost.  :169:

    You can easily check whether they are fitted by carefully peeling back the left-hand Grip rubber
    to see if there are wires underneath for the heating elements.

    Alternatively you can remove the glove box ( 1 external screw and 1 internal screw,
    then lift the Glove Box upwards and to the rear to disengage the 2 pegs from
    their rubber grommets under the front edge ), then have a look underneath for
    the two small white rectangular connectors, to see if anything is plugged in to them.

    If Heated Grips ARE fitted, note that they only work when the engine is running.

    When switched ON with the engine running, Icons should appear at the lower corner of the Instrument Panel, and are removed from the display a few seconds after switching the Grips OFF.



    The Icons sometimes need to be enabled before they will appear on the display,
    either by insertion of a bridging link plug that replaces a blanking plug also located
    under the Glove box, on the sub harness feeding the Glove Box Power socket.

    Some Trophies did not have the Bridging Link arrangement, where the Icons can be
    enabled or disabled within the Dealer accessible menu. ( Trophies with the
    Bridging Link can also be enabled and disabled in this way ).

    Enabling / Disabling of the Icons can also now be accessed by use of
    the after market “DealerTool” device.

    Note also that even if the Icons do not show up on the screen,
    the Heated Seats should still work !

    Hope this helps !

     :400: ducatijoe to, as you say a great forum. Yes it is. And I agree with Coconut when he says that the heated grips may not be actually fitted. Just because the switch is on the left switch block does not mean their fitted. If you bought the bike new then they will definitely not be fitted as they are an accessory item that requires the dealer to fit them. Sorry to be the bearer of "bad" news. Another way to check is if when you turn on the switch [heated grips] no icon appears on the dash then they aren't fitted. Cheers, and enjoy your riding.  :821: :158:
