  • checking the tps

    i know when you take your back seat off their is a plug and you can put a wire into it to check the tps and also any error codes. under my back seat their are two diff plugs. one looks like it can hold like 8 wires and the other looks like it can hold only two. im guessing its the one that can hold two but also dont wanna short anything out. i dont have a truck to take the bike to the mechanic if i ruin something. im not to mechanically savy but would like to dive into it myself because i really love the bike and would like to say that i worked on it by myself (with the help of the people on the forums). i appreciate any advice in advance. also if anyone has a picture laying around of the plug that would really help too.

              You have to give folks a chance to help. Expecting it in less than 4 hrs will set you up for failure. Also go to the file vault and download the manual. It and the site will steer you clear of the shops for small issues

                ahhhhhh... there is always a first time, so I am not going to badger, but seriously, that is probably the most common, seriously, item you can search here for "dealer mode": over 8 pages of results...

                the other two you jumped, the two little plugs with two wires in them (there should be three of those) Those are the turn signals (third is the tag light).

                glad to hear you got it sorted out.

                    If you tried searching you would have found that the question has been asked beofre You would have also found I'd posted this link about 1000 times already. http://wotid.com/tls/content/view/54/60/

                    Just in case you were thinking that the question hasn't been asked since 1997 and you were the only one who thought to ask here is the link again http://wotid.com/tls/content/view/54/60/
