Right grip cold left one hot
« on: December 22, 2013, 03:40:32 am »
Are their two fuses for the grips?   Last night, coming home, freezing left hand,  sweaty right.    Suspect I blew a fuse, yet it doesn't seem logical for two separate fuses. 

Any guidance?

Thanks
Jordan

Only one fuse for both. Did the grips both work before? Might be as simple as a connector not plugged in properly.  I recall that someone else had a problem and it was due to a worn/broken wire.

Hi Jordan,

There is a new "How to check the most common faults and issues" topic, in the "HOW TO" section of these forums.

Copied and pasted from there :

HEATED GRIPS NOT WORKING

Exisiting Installation ( Previously working ) :

If  the heated grips have previously been working correctly and have now stopped,
it is possible that the wire(s) has / have been “chafed” where it/they enter the handlebars
near the switch assembly, due to a sharp metal edge, which can then short out and cause the fuse to below.

If both grips are not working check Fuse No. 1 ( 10A ) in the Front fuse box.
If it has blown, and blows again when replaced, then it is likely that the above chafing of wiring is the cause.

If only one Heated Grip is not working, it is likely that that the plug in connector is not correctly connected,
or that the wire is completely cut through, but not in contact with the metal handlebar, ( i.e. the fuse would not blow ).

LOTS of other useful stuff over there too  :028:

Hey Jord, Yep, mine did the same thing early on after buying the bike. But it turned out to be a loose wire in the handgrip itself...really tight fit you see... My Triumph wrench diagnosed and treated the problem in about 10 minutes, no problems since....that was 8K miles ago...-Dr Ron :018:

Yeah..while trying to check for the "Chaffed wire," I managed to rip the wire completely......Sodering gun and electrical tape provided short term fix.    Darn those wire ties!

Did you find that the fault to your one non working grip was the chafed wire then ?

In any event, the fault should be covered by the warranty ?
