Post service problems
« on: February 09, 2019, 08:42:31 PM »
Hi all

I could do with a bit of advice. I had my 30 00 mile service at a main agent in December. Today I took the old girl out for a run. No problems until I stopped, then when I started up I got the engine light and the traction control light. Stopped and restarted a couple of times but the problem persisted.  The engine was in limp mode no more than 70 in top.  Got home, stopped and tested again and problems cleared.

Anyone got any ideas? No more than 50 miles since the service so inclined to think loose wire or plug?

I thought service was 32K miles. Its a big service so maybe some wires dislodged.

Thing is will it come back again??

Call the dealer and get them to check, will have left a fault code of sorts.

The cause of the MIL (malfunction indicator light or engine light as you call it) will be stored in the ECM (electronic control module) on the bike until read then cleared.  Section 4 of the FSM (factory service manual) gives 2 ways of reading DTCs (diagnostic trouble codes) 1. using the HDS (Honda diagnostic system) Pocket tester or 2. using the jumper wire diagnostic SCS (service check short) connector plug under the seat yourself. 

I'd take it back to the dealer and get em to retrieve the DTCs and fix the cause seeing as how they brought it on.
