glove closure
« on: May 01, 2014, 10:40:55 pm »
hello
wanted to know if anyone could identify the wire speed, which sends signal to the closure of the glove box, that keeps it closed when the motorcycle is running

Hi miss,

This is not stated in the Owners Handbook or Service Manual,
just that it locks when the motorcycle is "in motion".

From memory it is quite a low speed - about 5 MPH.

Going by the wiring diagram, the Black/Green wire is a ground that goes to the both the solenoid and associated diode as a parallel connection (as well as the TES module), and the Green wire comes from the canbus harness to the solenoid and diode as a parallel connection to provide a signal. Without testing I don't know if it works by being closed by default when everything is turned off (this would make sense power use wise) and only open under certain conditions (ignition on and not moving too fast), or what the voltage is.

Hope that helps.

My glove box won't open. Triumph say it's a problem with the solenoid. The dealer sent me a new one.

But I can't 'get the glove box panel off as there's a screw inside the box which I have to remove..

Is there any other way of opening the box?

Hi Iain,

Tricky one !

These catches do "stick" sometimes and need a little persuasion to pop open.

I'd remove the one screw that IS accessible - this may allow the glove box to move slightly
on top of the fairing panel ( be careful not to scratch the paint ), and that in itself can free up the lid,
especially if it has been fitted a bit tight up against the other panels. 

With the Ignition ON, I would then try gently tapping the glove box lid,
on the side opposite to the release button ( so if it does release you don't knock it back locked again  :138: )
and "prodding" the release button a few times.

You can also try a combination of the above while using a soft bladed prying tool
near to the release button, to lever the cover open.
 
You might also be able to remove the fuel tank centre cover, ( two screws at the back,
accessible when the riders seat is removed, and two at the front ),
then reach under enough to have a wobble of the solenoid catch.

Na,nothing happening. It won't open and I'm afraid I'm going to break something if I push it any harder. I've tried everything I can think of and have had screwdrivers in every which way but it doesn't want to open.

Part of my reason for buying this bike was the long service intervals but since my purchase I've already been back to the dealer for the ECU recall and it now looks like I'll have to go back with this. Complete pain!

I've got my big trip of the year coming up and it's disappointing to have this not working. I suppose teething problems are inevitable with any new model. I'll just have to live with it for now. :003:

Iain; I'm not sure if this will help as I live in the US. Maybe this issue maybe different on UK/Europe version SE. But.... My glove box will not open while the key is in the off position. If I just turn the key to the start position and press the button for the box, it opens. I can also open it, despite what I have read here, while the bike is in motion. Again, not sure if this will help but good luck.
