Mk3 stranded!
« on: September 20, 2018, 08:31:16 PM »
Soooo here I am, unable to start the bike!
The alarm (not Triumph’s) clicks underseat when I press the fob, but indicators do not flash.
When I press the starter, nothing happens. No screen, no light, not even a single relay click underseat.
All the fuses are good (visual check only).
The keyless key’s battery looks good (tried it off near the receiver anyway).
The main battery is good (tried succesfully my Airman on the front socket).

Based on XCATel’s testimony here in May, I think I’ll have to remove all the rear parts, then wiggle wires from the alarm and hope it’ll work.
If my bike is still where I left it tomorrow morning that is...


Any other idea someone?

Oh yes I forgot to mention: four days ago I successfully tapped the rear light to power up my topbox leds.
Can’t see how it would be related but...

Best of luck Nik  :003:  I never really (for definite) found out what my starting issue was and I am hoping the return of the wet weather does not bring a repeat of my random failing to start faults. It has been faultless in that respect for the summer months. Hope you get sorted soon.

Run/Stop switch on?
Are the battery bolts on tight?

I've had one scary incident at a servo. After filling up, I couldn't start my T1200.  Wriggled all the wires around the handlebars, pushed the bike against the gears, played with clutch lever, put sidestand up and down a few times, swore a bit under my breath.  Then it started.  No idea what the problem was, or whether something I did helped.

The one other incident I've had was when at a Motel under a small phone tower.  Screen reported keyfob out of range.  I put it right next to the receiver.  Didn't help.  But the bike started OK, and once I was away from the tower it was happy.  (This is a known scenario.)

Good luck NiK.

Yeah I know about possible interferences. But the alarm fob does send a signal to the receiver (as proven by the clicks I can hear underseat: one when deactivating, two when activating).
Thing is the indicators do not light up. I suspect an electrical problem somewhere, putting the whole system down...

And of course the damn electric steering lock won’t help to put the bike on the assistance truck!

On the T1200 there is no separate kill switch.  The kill/off/on/start, are all one switch.

Ah OK I didn’t know that. It would have been a school boy error to make anyway!
I hope OP manages to sort this out
