Help!!
« on: February 08, 2016, 11:55:34 pm »
I took the bike for a ride today, and the temp gauge stopped working, and the bike started acting like it was cold. I shut it down and checked the fuses to no avail. When I restarted it the temp gauge started flashing and I got an overheat indication on the screen. I shut it down again and it went back to like it was cold. Is this a thermostat, a relay or something else, please help, so frustrated.  :148:

Possibly an error code was set to the ECM/PCM memory, shedding a few clues to the nature of the problem?
Somewhere on this forum is an excellent instruction on how to retrieve the codes, and what they indicate.
No test equipment required, it requires a switch combination and ignition key enable.

Hey jetman, I'm going to say not a thermostat. Temp would not vary with a thermostat. I'm thinking something in the connector / heat sensor is sending faulty info to the engine management system.

Hope that helps and please let us know the issue once you get it resolved

Awesome, thanks for your guy's help. I am going to dive into troubleshooting this weekend, and hope to have a resolution. Brenchly, I really appreciate the link to the code tutorial, that really helped in at least getting to a starting point.

If you do have any Fault Codes ( DTC's ) post details here,
as this may lead to further help and advice being forthcoming !

Your Profile shows your Trophy as being a 2014 Model - is it still under warranty ?

If so then I would recommend taking a Photograph of any displayed DTC's both for reference,
and as evidence in the event of a warranty claim, as many of these Codes can be automatically cleared
from Memory after a certain number of "No Fault" starts, such as when there is an intermittent fault,
and it could then be a challenge to convince your Dealer that there is / was such a fault ! 

Cheers  :821:

I do have a fault code, it P0118 coolant temperature circuit. So I don't know if this is a sensor, a relay or a wire.

DTC P0118 = "Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Open Circuit or Short Circuit to 5 Volt sensor supply."

From the Service Manual :
The Sensor is situated at the rear of the cylinder head, on the left hand side.
Coolant temperature informiation, received by the ECM, is used to optimise fuelling
at all engine temperatures and to calculate hot and cold start fuelling requirements.

A faulty Sensor is the most likely cause of your problem,
followed by a wiring fault between the sensor and the main ECM.

There are two wires connected to the Sensor -
one is Black, the other is Pink with a Green trace,
which should help you to identify it.

The Sensor Part Number via World of Triumph is PFKL1206491 and costs £31.61.
( Click that Link to  go to the World of Triumph Web Site
where you can see a drawing of the Sensor at Item 8. )
Sorry that's the UK site - I didn't have time to look up any US Suppliers !

Hope that helps !  :028:
