Picked up my -03 FJR last Saturday and when I were fitting my intercom system to her, I decided that she needed her engine cleaned. This might have been a misstake but I never owned a bike with a engine management system before.

Now when I tries to start her she have her engine fault lamp lit and displaying what I assume are fault codes; F34 and F16 alternating.

I hope it only is moisture somwhere but does anyone know what the codes means and how to reset the system?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Ride often and ride SAFE,

Morgan

Er.... did this involve, perhaps, a spray can of engine degreaser and a high-pressure steam washer? :shock:

Code 34 suggests an open circuit condition in the primary wire of the ignition coil.

Code 16 is the classic TPS (throttle positioning sensor) problem.

Yeah... better let the engine bay dry out for a while....

and leave it dirty next time....... :p :D

Warchild,
You could earn a living as a psychic.
:lol:

But yes, it did.

So are the engine management system likely to reset itself (providing I haven't caused any permanent damage) or will it require a manual reset after things have dried out?
And if it requires a reset, how is it done??
:oops:

Regards,

Morgan, who now ordered the workshop manual (too late as allways).

Disconnect the battery, clears the codes. Unlatch the connectors of the affected components and clean using contact or brake cleaner, these dry completely and quickly.

Thanks for your replies, much appreciated.

Tonight, after ~20hrs with a fan-heater blowing on her bits, the 16 error had dissappeared.

Knowing what to look for, i found the terminals on the ignition coil so heavily coroded that the cables came off when I disconnected them. :evil:
New terminals and a lot of grease later the 34 code dissapeared and she started :D

:D :D :D

Blowing a fan heater on her bits for 20 hours - there's no answer to that.

Must try that with the wife - maybe she'll dissappear? :lol:

Not advisable, it WILL throw up a six (or should it be a sex) error
