Check Engine Light - October 11, 2007, 07:08 PM

One of my co-workers has been telling me about how right at 20,000 miles, his 2001 Triumph TT600's engine light came on. The bike still runs great but he needs to know what to do to shut it off so that he can sell it. At the 12,000 mile checkup he was charged over $800 and he's desperately trying to avoid that again.

R.I.P. Eric. You were truly like a younger brother to me. May you live on in all those you helped and reached out to help. You are truly missed!

12k's are expensive if you have the dealer do it all. Most of the stuff they charge you for is checks.

Has he checked the battery cables and voltage?

I think the TT600 has a Sagem ECM. To reset it simply start the engine without any throttle input. Do not touch anything. let the bike idle until the cooling fan cycles. That should reset the ECM. If the light stays on he will have to get it scanned, that should not cost more than an hour.

He tried disconnecting the battery for several hours but the light still comes on when started. He's going to try running it a little while and see if the ECM resets however is unable to start it without throttle input. I personally thought this to be strange for a fuel injection system.

go and get a good obd scanner, it's prob just a hose. after diconnecting the battery you should give it three heat cycles and then see if the light goes out. good luck!
