« on: February 07, 2019, 12:09:49 PM »
hi everyone,

i just got a brand new GS911 and this is the result of the autoscan,

please need some help to understand the faults codes.

Hi Afrca1200RT, and welcome.

Normally you will have the actual fault code, then the description of the fault.  Below that it tells you whether the fault is currently present or not.

Say for example your headlight globe pops.  You will get a warning on your instrument cluster saying "LAMPF" (Meaning "Lamp Front" ie. one of the front lamps have popped)  A rear lamp would reflect "LAMPR" (LAMP REAR)

If you run the diagnostics it will give you the relevant error code, and the code description.
Below that it will say, normally in red:  "The fault is currently present"

Once you replace the globe, the error code and description will still be there, but below it and in black it will say "The fault is not present now"

Once you have cleared the faults, they naturally disappear from the list.

Based on your Autoscan, you have previously had faults with:

Ignition Supply
Exhaust flap servomotor
Electronic Immobiliser
Park light
CAN Timeout
Front tyre-pressure sensor
Electrical System under-voltage
Front Wheel Speed Sensor
CAN-bus timeout from Engine
CAN-bus timeout from KOMBI
No communication with ANY of the other control units
CAN-bus error
CAN-bus timeout with ABS control unit
CAN-bus timeout for vehicle speed signal (ABS)
CAN-bus timeout with BMS-K control unit
CAN-bus timeout with BMS-K control unit
CAN-bus timeout with ZFE control unit
Discrepancy in values of total mileage between BMS-KP and KOMBI (instrument cluster)
CAN-bus timeout with RDC (Tyre pressure) control unit
CAN-bus timeout with ENGINE (ASC)
CAN-bus timeout: Communication of backup vehicle mileage (BMSKP/KOMBI)
Electrical System (KL30) under-voltage

All the above are errors the system has picked up in the past but have for some reason been resolved on their own.  You most likely cause of all these errors is the last one highlighted in red, which is a low voltage error ie.  battery was flat.

Issues you do have on your bike that are currently still present are:

Front rebound adjustment
Heated Grips
Horn
Heated seat

Clear all the fault codes.  Have a look at what remains.  If a fault is currently present the error will not be able to be cleared.
If all errors are cleared, take the bike for a ride and do another Autoscan to see which have reoccurred.

Remember that errors like the rebound adjustment on the suspension will most likely be cleared and will not return again after a ride.  If there is an issue with the rebound, the error will only occur once you try to use that function and change the rebound settings.

but after a 10 min ride I came back these are still present

Front rebound adjustment
Heated Grips ( i cancel them because im in africa with 38 degres centigrade as a daily ambient temp)
Horn ( I added 3 other horns)
Heated seat ( I disconnected it due to ambient extrem heat)


unfortunately the nearest BMW Dealer is 3500nm away


really thank you so much

Ok. So the horn and the heated seat are self inflicted errors.

The rebound on the suspension though could be an issue, but that will need to be attended to by BMW.
Heated grips often fail but as you say, not really an issue for you.

Where are you located?

Indeed self inflicted issues

I don't know what is the front rebound, but is it dangerous to ride with that fault?
I'm located in Benin Republic (West Africa)

No, not dangerous at all.  It just means that you cannot change the rebound settings on the front shock.  Not really an issue if you are sticking to paved roads.

oops only paved road, we have a lot of sand road here.
I now understand why last week I almost got stuck while I tried to ride over some sand road.

the ESA mode is in Normal mode, I tried to change it to other modes unsuccessfully.

 ;D  What are you doing in deepest Africa on an RT?  You need a GSA!   ;)

RTs don't like gravel at the best of times, sand even less.  Yes, it is when you attempt to change settings that the system chucks up the error.
