Well I screwed up something
« on: July 01, 2022, 02:06:46 AM »
Today I was installing a brake light modulator and managed to arch a red/green wire to the frame. It was only a fraction of a second, but enough to bring up a warning triangle. I ran an AutoScan and generated 22 codes :-\

I am hoping that I just tripped a breaker somewhere. The bike (a 2017 BMW R1200RT) still runs and other than the warning triangle, I don't see any problems. I erased the codes, but they all came back. So they are still there. What do I need to do to troubleshoot and fix this? I am stumped :(

"Status left malfunction switch from KOMBI) The fault is currently present"

the codes are:
CC9420
CD9420  C & E
CD9468
3A1301
D35468
D35420
D3542  E&C
D75420
E1140  A, C & E
E11410
E11412
E11414
E11416
E11418
B7F60F
E11441  A & C
E59420

Most of the codes say terminal 15  on
                                Terminal 30  on
                                Voltage between 9v and 16v

Hi Randyjaco

That's quite a bummer! With that amount of fault codes, I'd suggest running them through this portal Schuppi has highlighted in the past:
https://bmwfault.codes/

Most likely you'll see a common denominator which should point to the problem child that was hurt, I hope it's something small that's cheap to replace!

Kind regards and safe travels

Thanks Ruan. I did run them through Schuppi's portal and pretty much got the same/similar answer for all of them;telling me that Terminal 15 or 30 was on and that I was running between 9 and 16 volts. They are not clearing and I have no idea of what action to take. Surely there is a breaker somewhere I can reset. At the moment I am flummoxed.

Hi
first remove all connections and components that you have installed.
Read fault memory
If the same errors appear again, this indicates a fault in the CAN wiring or the control units.
No idea what a brake light monitor is, but you must have connected it incorrectly.
The described red/green cable is definitely wrong

Problem solved  ;D
Thanks for the replies. It turns out that I blew the 7.5 amp fuse. I replaced it and this time when I cleared the codes, they didn't come back. Even the lingering filler cap code, that has been bugging me for months disappeared. My bike is code free. Yeah!
I am surprised that the GS911 doesn't show a blown fuse??

Hi Randyjaco

With a blown fuse I'm surprised as well! Usually anything electric is reported by the bike's controllers, but this seems to not be one of them. The GS-911 asks all controllers how they're doing, and if anyone of them has something to complain about (fault codes), that will be displayed on the autoscan or controller's read fault codes section. So if it wasn't reported, that would explain why the GS-911 isn't reporting on it.

Kind regards
Ruan
