    Starting issue, TES fail , engine light on

    Had my 10,000 mile service, no issues prior.  Drove home 3 hours after service.  Firs ride next day stopped for gas.  When I went to restart, the display flashed on, then off , and all the gauges, speedometer etc, dials went up and down repeatedly.  Tried key several times same results.  Left key on for about 5 minutes and the display returned.  I was able to start at this point, but now have TES error on screen and engine light present.  I am 3 hours from service, and they are closed until tomorrow, wondering if anyone has any thoughts.  Bike is under warranty.

    Check the wiring loom coming off the wiring harness to the ignition switch, could be pulling tight around the neck of the frame and the wires to the ignition switch. Its been a more frequent problem mentioned here lately by other members.

    Check the battery connection.  Make sure it is tight.

    Loose main battery terminal(s) are the most likely cause, and the easiest to fix !

    However, if the below checks don't reveal anything untoward,
    check for any "Diagnostic Trouble Codes" ( DTC's ) stored in the ECU Memory.

    It's easy to do this and have them displayed on the instrument panel.
    It's highly recommended to check this whenever there is any problem,
    and to make a record of any Codes displayed ( Smart Camera phones are good for this ! ),
    particularly in the case of an intermittent fault - as many of the codes are erased from the Memory
    after a certain number of "no fault" starts, leaving you with no "evidence" to show the Dealer !  :157:

    Instructions here : Servicing Data, Reference Info. & DTC ( Fault ) Codes
    ( Scroll the page to Reply #8, "Diagnostic Trouble Codes ( DTC's ) / Fault Codes )
    where you will also find a downloadable Word document at the end of the Post
    giving the meaning of any Codes that are displayed.

    Let us know how you get on  :028:

    If one did happen to have the 'wiring at the ignition switch' problem, is there actually a code for that?? :002:

    According to the service manual, code P1698 is a 5 Volt Sensor Supply Circuit Malfunction. Most of the Pinpoint tests all have to do with checking different ECM pin cables.
