2001 GL1800 ABS Code 10

Post by seagul »



Hi guys n gals,
Can someone please assist me.
I have just recently even getting intermittent abs warnings come up.
I've gone through the diagnosis for code 10 and each time i come to the same "conclusion " which is basically sorry but either something may have jammed temporarily or the bike has been hit with or been near some high frequency radio signal. Al the typical checks on air gaps and cracks in pulse rotates and abs ecu connections and continuity has been checked. By all indications the ecu seems to be ok. The only thing I have noted is my battery seems to be a bit to quick to lose a bit of charge, but then again it's the start of winter here.
Any ideas as I'm really not looking forward to doing an rnr on the abs modules.
Kindest regards
Robert

Your battery is the problem, replace it if it's not holding a charge. You have to have full power for all the systems to function properly.
Have you kept a battery tender on it when it sets more than 2 weeks with good long rides?

Also clean the ABS sensors off with brake cleaner on a rag(have to remove sensors to clean them) they get brake dust on them.

Thanks for that I'll try that. The bikes my day to day rider I just can't seem to want to get of her. That being said the distance i ride each day through the week is only short, which may also explain why she didn't play up on the long ride directly after I pulled the bike down chasing the problem. I wasn't looking forward to replacing major components so here's hoping your advise works for me. Will let you know how I get on. Now I just got to get my wife to give me some money 😭😭😭😭
Again thank you for your help
Kindest regards Robert

If you only do short rides to work, take the long way home especially if the CFO doesn't release fundings!
Hopefully she will go for the long rides too.
Really should be kept on a battery tender if you "Can't" get out for long rides at least once a week.
How old is your battery and have you had it load tested?

A good read on battery failures and how you can load test your battery.

I've had the bike for 2 years now and I suspect the battery would be some 2.5 to 3 years old, which I suspect would be about what you would get out of a AGM battery. As for the CFO she prefers her GS500 over the wing, go figure no accounting for taste or class! What should I expect she married meπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Test the battery to see what it's condition is. Some AGM batteries have given 7-8 years of life. Some not.

I don't know what you have for shops or parts stores down under but here in the USA the auto parts stores will charge and load test a battery for free.
A motorcycle shop should have a load tester and charger if you take your battery to them. Maybe they won't charge a fee to charge it and test it?? Might save a CFO payout???

πŸ‘will give it a go! I'm in central Queensland and actually have very little confidence in local mechanical work shops. Actually there's a rumour that look government is going to trial something called traffic lights instead of our stop go pelicans we have been using for generations πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
As for CFO well if all works out I might be able to lever out the funds and use it for some bling if I don't need a new battery. I'll let her know it was your suggestion so I don't get in trouble πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
