FI problems

Post by MCRyder44 »



I have a 2005 GL1800. My FI light is giving me 16 flashes (1 long 6 short) which indicates.........16 Blinks • Engine does not start • Loose or poorly connected No. 5 injector connector: • Open or short circuit in No. 5 injector wire: • Faulty No. 5 injector

My engine will start with no problem and runs fine. What other issue could be causing this?

Have you pulled the codes by shorting the connector under the seat, or did you use the side-stand method ???

If you have not pulled the code from under the seat, I'd recommend that you pull them that way. What I usually find are all 6 fuel injector codes stored (12, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17). If all 6 are stored, at least to me, the codes seem to get thrown for an erroneous reason. Let me explain ... it has always been my belief that somebody like a DIYr was doing something he should not have be doing. For example, with the key in the on position, he then hooks up has battery ... something dumb like that. However, I've never been able to figure out what someone else might have been doing to trigger all 6 codes to store.

Once you pull the codes under the seat, for your record be sure to write them down, and then erase the codes.

Another shop's theory says that multiple codes stored means that the ECM is failing .... I've never found that to be true either.
