    Ignition Coil fault?

    Travelling into town this morning on my 2014 TTSE and I had warning lights start flashing, followed by a message that the TC (traction control) is now disconnected. The TC and EML lights remained lit (amber).
    Nursed it off the motorway and into the office on two cylinders, read the codes and up pops P0353 (Ignition Coil fault - coil 3).

    Being 180 miles from home I rang the local Triumph dealer, they advised that they could take a look at it - in two weeks! I guess it's not going to them anytime soon.

    I then tried another dealer about 50 miles away (recommended by people on here) who was a lot more helpful. He advised that they don't see many ignition coil failures and it was usually a wire become disconnected. After a little poking around (no tools to hand) I can't get much of a view of anything around the top-end so I will have to get the bike to him for analysis.

    Looks like I'm going home by train this weekend :023:

    Bummer!  Hope they get it sorted quickly for you.  Let us know what the problem was once you find out.

    Update on the current situation.
    Due to the London dealers being unable to look at the bike for some weeks I had the bike recovered to my local dealer in Somerset.
    They looked at it on Monday and advised that it was definitely the No. 3 coil at fault, Triumph were sending out a replacement.
    Tuesday - phone call from Dealer, Triumph had not sent the part out as requested and the repair would be delayed. Another phone call 30 mins later, the sales guy had checked which other models used the same part and found a bike in stock to take one from. Advised that the bike would be ready Weds evening.
    Weds eve - turned up to hear that the bike had just failed the road test - all was fine whilst being bench-tested but as soon as it was ridden under load it packed up. Sounded like a connection or wiring issue to me, and considering that the fault initially happened with no warning it did not seem to be a coil breaking down.
    Thurs - Called the dealer, they advised that they found a burnt wire in the loom, it had been chaffing on something (I don't know where yet). Order was into Triumph for a new loom but they don't expect to get the bike back to me this week.
    To be continued........................

    Whoa! That's already 8 days without your bike! Hope it gets fixed soon.
    I presume it is out of warranty, but it sounds like it might be a good shout for help from Triumph? How many miles has it done?

    Still in warranty, by a few weeks!
    28.5k miles.
    The shout out to Triumph will come when I get an invoice for labour, at the moment the Dealer has advised that it is a warranty claim although I am sure that they will try and tell me that it only applies to parts when it comes to collection time.

    In the meantime I am on trains and buses, 40 a day and 2 hours for what is normally a 60 minute ride into the office.

    Extracted from the Warranty Terms and Conditions as laid out on the Triumph Web Site :

    Triumph will bear labour charges for work carried out under the warranty.

    UPDATE!
    The dealer has called to say my bike will be ready today! It's a shame that I'm 160 miles away and can't get there until Saturday morning, but it will be good to be back on a bike, even in the winter temperatures.
