Thanks, T800XC

It would be great to meet, as I'm new to using diagnostic tools, and going through the set-up process would be very useful.  I haven't yet worked out how to message to another member on the forum, but if you message me with a phone or email contact, I can give you my details.

As Coconut says, getting to the bottom of this engine light/cruise control issue and posting it will help if others encounter similar problems.

Teign500 :

Have you checked for any DTC's yet as suggested in my previous Post ?

No external equipment is needed to check this, and I always recommended to check
for any Codes sooner rather than later, especially in the case of any intermittent faults,
as some of the DTC's will be removed from the ECU Memory after a certain number of "No Fault " starts.

There are several potential causes of the Cruise Control disengaging,
and if a DTC has been logged, which is likely if the "MIL" ( Malfunction Indicator Light ) is ON,
this may indicate where the problem lies.

More information on this ( and many other issues ) can be found here :

HOW TO : Check the most common faults & issues. Page 1 ( A - D ) -
Scroll down the alphabetically ordered list to "Cruise Control Not Functioning".

If there are any DTC's stored, please start a New Topic listing them, and describing the problem
in one of the other Forum Sections, such as "Maintenance, Servicing and Mechanical Issues",
for the benefit of other Members who may browse that Topic in future.

To send a PM to another Member, look at the left side of a message they have posted,
and click on the little Personal Message button :

Thanks for your information, Coconut.  I hadn't realised that you could bring up fault codes on the instrument panel without having a diagnostic tool to hand.  I'm away from the bike for a few more days, but will check when I get back to it.  Other happenings suggest that the battery, or connections could be involved.

Hi, folks.  Got a 1200 Trophy with all the touring gear last year.  A bit different to the Velocette Venom that I've ridden and maintained for 43 years.

My past bikes are all BSAs.  I did meet someone in Lincoln once and he asked me where I lived.  I told him Tynemouth...he said yes, Devon is a lovely place  :008: :008:

Something to do with accents, I think....
