Cruise Control failure
« on: September 17, 2013, 09:25:09 PM »
Hi, first problem with my new Trophy. :233:

Riding at  more than 50 kmh, in 4th o more gear, no brakes or clutch pressed the cruise control does not activate !
I red the activation procedure (very simple) 1000 times and I'm sure that something goes wrong. :005:

Only a question about the intiial global check:

Turning ignition key on all lights are blinking and after 2 secs, only ABS and (optionally) Neutral still remain on .

After engine start and at a speed of 10kmh the ABS goes off.
Right ?

In my case , during the check I've also the Cruise Control light blinking, and it goes off after engine start.

Is this correct ?

Any kind of help is appreciated !  :400:

I think a trip back to the dealer may be required

my bike only the abs light and neutral stays on abs go's off after 10 mph

 :112: have you got the cruise control button pressed in all the time

as you can disengage cruise by pressing the button on and off :187:

rather then just using the set toggle switch and brakes  :033:

Yes, engage/disengage button pressed on and off, nothing happens .  :435:

So, you confirm (as stated in owner manual) that cruise control light shall not blink after check ?

Great !!!

After only 250 km I have to go back to the dealer ... 200 km away from home .

Hi,

Only a question about the intiial global check:

Turning ignition key on all lights are blinking and after 2 secs, only ABS and (optionally) Neutral still remain on . yes, right on mine excuding cruise light

After engine start and at a speed of 10kmh the ABS goes off.
Right ? yes on mine

In my case , during the check I've also the Cruise Control light blinking, and it goes off after engine start. not on mine

Is this correct ?

Considering the manual, my cruise is not working as mentioned. I've to press in sequence the cruise (pulsante), then set, then again both. After this, in case I brake or change a gear, I've only to press "set"

Ciao, a presto,

Hervé

When the Ignition is first switched ON, the Cruise Control Light DOES NOT light up at all.

After 2 seconds ABS should be blinking, and stays blinking until speed of 6MPH / 10 KM/h is achieved.
Neutral light shoudl be ON ( if gearbox is in Neutral ! ). 
Main Beam light may also be ON if headlight is set to Main Beam.

All other warning lights should be out after 2 seconds.

Cruise Control Light should only be lit when Cruise Control is activated.

To activate Cruise control :

1.  Press IN the Cruise Control Switch to switch it ON ( The switch is to the left of the Starter )
    The switch should remain "IN" - if it is "OUT" then Cruise Control is OFF.
    MAKE SURE you press the switch all the way in so it latches IN ( difficult when wearing gloves  ! )
     If the switch does not stay IN - it is faulty !
     
2.  Ride at more than 30MPH ( 48KM/h ), and in 4th , 5th or 6th gear.

3.  Press the "SET / -" button.  The Cruise Control light on the Speedometer should light up,
     AND the lower section of the Instrument display should display the set speed for about 4 seconds.


Cruise control will be de-activated if :

The Cruise control switch is turned OFF ( Button = OUT ),

Either brake is applied ( make sure you are not accidentally "riding" on the rear brake pedal ),

The throttle control is rolled forward slightly past the Idle position,

The Clutch lever is operated, or

Speed is manually increased by use of the throttle, and remains above the Set speed for more than 60 seconds.

Cruise Control Set Speed ( when Cruise control is ON ) is adjusted by :

Pressing the "RES / +" button to increase speed ( 1 brief press will increase speed by 1 MPH or 1 KM/h,
or Hold the button in until the desired speed is indicated on the Instrument Panel display then release ).

Manually accellerating to the desired speed and pressing "SET / -"

Pressing the "SET / - " button to decrease speed ( 1 brief press will decrease speed by 1 MPH or 1 KM/h,
or Hold the button in until the desired speed is indicated on the Instrument Panel display then release ).

After de-activating the Cruise control by any method, the previous Set Speed is stored in memory,
until the Ignition is switched OFF, and can be restored by pressing the "RES / +" button.

Hope this helps  :028:

Yes, I know the procedure ... and it's what I've done several times without results.

Today I’ve called the dealer and he told me that the failure may be … not a failure !!! :084:

He sad that during bike preparation before delivering to the customer it’s necessary to connecti the bike to the maintenance computer  in order to check some parameters regarding ride by wire and ABS. This is called "safety control", if all parameters are correct the software enables the Cruise Control.

The cruise control light blinking during check in the dashboard on my bike confirm that this check hasn't been performed.  :157:

So, tomorrow I’ll go to the dealer, he will perform the check and the cruise control will be activated (I hope).

Greetings

Sergio

As it is such a long trip to your dealer and you are only doing it because they failed to do what they should have done as part of the per delivery inspection I suggest you insist on a free gift!

Although I guess you could always wait until the 500 mile first service when you have to go in anyway and get them to do it then.
