690 2018 with dash not working except for Soft 4.1 dat 14
« on: August 23, 2020, 01:52:13 pm »
what does soft 1,4 - dat 4,1 code on a 690 mean.
 I went for a ride yesterday , and after stopping for fuel I got a blank dash with these code  , , there are no flashing Fi codes . after a short span of time the dash comes back on but all trips are reset to 0 and clock are reset to 12:00

washed the bike today and when I started it to dry out got the same as the above, its as if its loosing power to the dash ,

the bike runs fine all the time.
where are the manne that know this bike.


people wonder why I hate electronics on Bikes and love my 950 .

Soft n.n Dat n is just the dash displaying the ECU software/firmware version on reset, not a display of error codes.

First thing to check is the dash connector. Make sure it's seated correctly.

Then maybe the battery.
Just to point out that your battery may have enough current to crank the engine, but not enough voltage to power the ECU which is extremely voltage sensitive.
Simplest test is to remove the headlight fuse and see if the ECU keeps resetting when you turn your key.

bike runs fine just no display and can hear the display trying to reset , after a short ride the display comes back to life. the battery is as old as the bike and the bike has just come out of warranty so am hoping it is just the battery , will test with a the battery from my other bike and see what happens.

Sounds like a bad battery or possibly a bad connection where the multiple goes into the speedo.  I had a similar problem where it turned out that the power wire in that multiple was dodgy.  I then spliced in power from a different source nearby and all was good again.
Multiple without autocorrect is multiplug.
