K1200LT fault codes 288 & 5381
« on: October 16, 2018, 10:34:10 PM »
My 2002 K1200LT started dying at stops. Ran great under throttle but when I stopped it would fluctuate then die. I ran the auto scan and got these 2 codes.

288    Throttle Position Sensor, Internal Fault on Upper or lower Potentiometer Slider. The fault is not present now.

5381 Idle Switch, Short-circuit to Earth.The fault is not present now.

The printed autoscan doesn't show it but on the GS911 it said they had occured 20 or 30 times. I'm going to change the TPS and recalibrate it. Has anyone else had a similar issue? Was the Idle switch error caused by the TPS or is it bad too?
