Doesn't the manual somewhere list the MIL codes? I would think it should... what's the point in having user-accessible diagnostics if they don't let you know what they are?
Computer controll engine, is not an end all for trouble shooting. You will not get a "light' for a verity of possible malfunctions IE bad TCI, fuel pump not pumping, oil leaks, loose wires.You still need to go back to basics, then check codes. Oh this works for cars too.
For all the excitement of the C5, I wonder how many riders are telling themselves they'd better wait a year before considering one?
Thanks for all your concerns,Gents, and in particular thanks Kevin for the list of MIL blink codes, -no they are not in my ,manual either, but they soon will be now! I must say your level of expertise is very helpfull -I'm not quite sure were we on this side of the pond would be without this forum and all the advise given by its contributors.The bike is not yet fixed ( my dealer has limitations on labour resources), but it is now thought that somewere in the electrics there is a loose spade connector, thereby not being able to signal to the MIL/ECU or what ever?? -hence currently no blinking red light. So at the end of day 3, still waiting patiently and slowly climbing out of this bed of self pity.Regards
Well it is now June 26th. Its now 16 days since the recall (as far as I'm concerned)I haven't heared a thing from anybody, apart from 2 occasions since I made a couple of calls. Every day I look to see if my postman delivers this letter that we are expecting to receive.Now I know that a lot of people are saying you must be patient and that these things take time, but you know, how long do you have to wait, how long will your patience last.I think this is the trouble with us Brits., we don't jump the line, we generally don't make a fuss, -- this stiff upper lip thing,-- is it really doing us any good. Ah well sorry about the moan (one thing we(me) are good at ),-back to watching the letterbox.JamesC5, you must be really pulling your hair out by now, its not as though they have to transport your bike, as I understand, they have it!
