Another day, another problem…
Yesterday, Friday October 5, Molly was to have the factory alarm installed along with the latest map (#47)
The tech got the infamous, STOP ENGINE, 0 Voltage, error on the dash before he’d had a chance to do anything. Funny, instrument panel error codes was the one problem my bike had not displayed and THE one I was most afraid of getting, far from home. What better then to have it happen to the tech while at the dealership?
On direction from the MV Canada rep Molly will be staying at the dealership until all issues are resolved..
Hopefully the error code is just a bad connection or sensor. The tech will go through the entire wiring harness inspecting connections and sensors.
Map #46 will be reloaded. According to the MV rep, Map #47 is for the US market only. NOT TO BE USED ON CANADIAN F3’s! Even though they refused to do this when I begged them to during Molly’s first service. What changed, I dunno?
Other issues to be corrected at this time include, incorrect gear indicated and corroded fasteners. The MV rep will be at the shop on Tuesday to observe and I assume report the findings to Italy. He's also bringing the new fasteners.
