Windshield would not move up or down
« on: December 07, 2015, 09:59:36 pm »
I recently allowed the battery on my TTSE to go dead. After charging it enough to where the bike would start and run again, the windshield (windscreen if you prefer) refused to move.

All the other functions on the bike seemed normal. I pulled the fuse for the windshield motor and it was fine. Cleaned the oxide off the blades of the fuse and replaced it. No go.

A search on this forum suggested that resetting the system might cure the problem.

I pulled the main fuse at the battery, waited half a minute and replaced it. That's all it needed. The windshield now goes up and down, deploys to the last position on startup and stows on shutdown. All is well.

Posting this in case it helps anyone else. This is such a great forum, saved me going to the dealer!  :046:

Thanks, I'm sure if it happened to you; others will benefit from your discovery.  Sometimes when faced with such a situation, we forget that our Forum probably has a solution if we just search for the topic.  :152:

The other day my windshield began acting a little weird. Upon start up the windshield would only raise just a bit, and not to where it was the last time I turned the bike off. When I pushed the buttons to manually raise and lower it, they wouldn't work. The windshield would move an inch or so then return back to where it was. Now it gets a bit stranger. As soon as I got over 20 mph the windshield moved up and down using the buttons just fine. I guess I'll disconnect the battery and see if the problem happens again. The bike is still under warranty so I'm not too concerned.

It's such a quick and easy thing to try (and free!) it would be a shame not to give it a shot. I didn't have the luxury of a warranty, so it was a big relief when that fixed it for me  :062:

Good luck, and let us know your results.

For members that have purchased the "DealerTool" device,
there is also a Screen Reset facility where the screen is motored to the fully Up and full Down positions,
allowing the ECU to "learn" the limit stop positions. ( See Image below ).

The Search Button is really useful .....

There is also a possibility that the screen has been installed a bit off and that the pressure on the windscreen just realigns it a bit so that the helical screw moves easier and does not trip the too difficult to move sensor.  I spray dry lube on my helical screw  :156: after every wash (although therefore not that often)
