ABS issues from a newbie


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I know this is probably a silly question, but since I'm new I don't feel bad asking it. I've had my 2000 RT for about a week and last night the abs fault went off. It's an alternating flashing, top then bottom. Any ideas?? I've read in other posts that it may be battery related, but I would appreciate any thoughts on this. Thanks.

If it flashes normally (in sequence) before you engage the starter, then yes, It's probably the low-voltage fault. If, on the other hand, it flashes alternately as soon as you turnt he ignition on, it's a persistant fault and needs to be investigated/cleared.


Do a quick search on ABS Fault and you will find all the links to diagnose this fault.

One thing to try and get into the habit, is to turn the key on and wait 10-15 seconds before starting the bike. This gives the ABS to perform its 'test' before you put a drain on the battery while starting, thus eliminating the possible low voltage fault.
