New bike gone bad: Cruise Control
I bought another 2002 K1200RS (new) last weekend while I look for forks for my old one(donor). Unfortunately, I'm having a problem with the new bike and I've got a sinking feeling.
I look to you knowledgable, kind folks for some ideas...
The cruise control diagnostic steps: Key On+SET, Release Set, Res, release Res, Off, On, Throttle close, etc. indicate an issue with the throttle close circuit.
The cables are good, the switch operates (used ohm meter), yet there is some issue.
I don't think it is the close switch. I elimated the switch from the test by jumping the connectotr directly, this process works on the donor but not the new bike.
I'm suspecting issues with the harness or worse as resistance is different between the throttle close connector and the cruse module connector.
* Are there any other tests for the throttle close circuit?
* Ideas appreciated before I keep sinking deeper and swap the Cruise module.
Thanks in advance.
