Traction control malfunction warning
« on: April 24, 2015, 04:55:25 am »
I've searched the forum and haven't found any posts with this exact issue...
Returning from Charleston, South Carolina to Ohio today. After a couple hours riding I was shifting from 3rd to 4th gear when the bike suddenly went to about 50% power and a "traction control malfunction" warning came up on the dash. Power came back and the warning cleared after about 5 seconds. It did this 6 or 7 more times when up shifting. Stopped at a Trump dealer in NC. They said the ECM was showing no faults but there was a loose battery cable that they thought was the culprit. Tightened it up and I was on my way. No problems for the next 150 miles until I stopped for a short break. Did it again as I was shifting.
Anyone experience this before?? Just a tad bit frustrated at this point...

Had a 'similar' issue a couple of weeks back on a tour of west France.  Was entering a highway at around 80mph when suddenly I lost power. More throttle gave me less power.  Knocked it down to 5th and got the power back.

Mentioned this on my return to my local Triumph dealer who had not heard of this before.

It was exactly as you described and I felt it was the traction control, although I had no warning light.

It hasn't happened before and hasn't happened since.  But I'm keeping an eye on it.

Sounds like the same issue. If it happens again look at the bottom section of the dash readout. On mine there was no warning light. Just a "traction control malfunction" message that is visible for only a few seconds.

I had this issue a couple of weeks back. Took it back (as luckily was in the area where i bought the bike) Plugged it in, uploaded an update and hey presto, all back to normal.

Cheers

Just had a word with Staffordshire Triumph and unfortunately there was no name/number to it purely the "Current Update" which solved the issue.

Sorry could assist further

Today I encountered a similar problem. I was at the local credit union for some banking and when I came out to start the bike the TES calibration was inordinately long. Then when I went to start the bike I got a TC malfunction message and the TC warning light and the bike won't start. I checked the battery leads and they were fine. So then I disconnected the battery and contacted the + and - leads for about 30 seconds to drain all power from the system.

Any other suggestions? Just firmware updates? I think Mother Triumph will have to take a look.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
