brains needed
« on: April 18, 2015, 02:24:22 pm »
OK brainy people advice needed

62 plate TT SE, 9500 miles, had all recalls done.
About a month ago whilst out on a long run the traction control light and EMS light both came on and the gear indicator went to 1 even whilst cruising on the motorway at 70ish MPH, no loss of power, everything fine apart from above got home switched bike off switched back on gear indicator works and traction light goes off EMS light stays on bike still runs fine.
Rang dealer advised to run a couple of heat cycles and see if that resets EMS light, which it did.

Onto yesterday out on another long run cruising along the A14 approx 70mph and the same happened again, stopped switched off switched back on traction control and gear indicator works as normal but EMS light stays on again ran a couple of heat cycles and light went out, so carried on 5 mins later same again so just carried on home no problems until when home if i revved the bike either in gear or neutral the bike stalled. 

Again rang dealer this morning booked in for next week for them to have a look at, so advice needed is what should i be asking the dealer to do and what sort of answers would you be expecting back, have been told it should about 2 hrs to download any info from the bike and look at it.

You could try looking to see what Diagnostic Trouble Codes have been "Stored" by the EMS...

I can't find the exact link on this Forum by try searching in the "How To" Section.

Found it, try this

"Now that we know how to get DTC's displayed on the Instrument panel
( Press the SCROLL UP and SELECT buttons together,
and hold them in while switching on the Ignition -"

I've done it once, to find nothing was stored, but if you manage it then it will give you an idea where the problems lies - before the Dealer gets his hands on it..

Information on reading the DTC's  ( Diagnostic Trouble Codes) can be found here :
Servicing Data and Reference Information together with an attached file on how to decode them.

After whatever fault caused the DTC has been cleared the MIL ( Malfunction Indicator Light ) 
will extinguish after a certain number of No Fault cycles,
and is then erased from memory after a certain number more -
the number of times depends on the actual Fault Code.

Check to see what Codes are stored, then look them up to see what they mean  :028:

Cheers,

Hi Bloodbiker, I am assuming on the 62 plate that you are now out of warranty, has it been mentioned how the work will be paid for? I have a 62 A1 TT and had pretty much the same problem early last year they had the bike for about three hours and all was then fine. It might be worth checking the display is still showing heated grips etc before riding off, I had to return to the dealer to sort this later.
