Heated Grip not Working

Post by dlewis1906 »



I have a heated grip issue. The grips do not heat while on nor does the seat. If I turn the grips off, then the seat will heat. Anyone know of a fix for this issue? or a Youtube video to help with the fix?

Sadly there have been a lot of these and a lot of fixes depending on what is causing the problem. The grips and the seat do work together and yes its usually the grips. Mostly I believe is a broken wire in the heated grip wiring on the right side of the bars. If you do an internet search you will find a lot if info.

ur it is the heater controller unit, it sits / hang near the battery (if you look to the battery its on the right) just clean the connector with wd40 and then try again.

Most likely it is a broken wire as keithsaid. But it doesn't hurt to try the easy stuff first but do not use WD40, use contact cleaner. WD 40 is a lubricant and will attract dirt and dust.
