    Hi guys,

    I bought a Griso 1100 in amazing condition with everything working.

    It was left for a couple of months (Winter) and the battery lost charge ( I didn't know), when I tried to start it everything obviously lost power.

    It now will not
    1. Cycle through menus using the left front select button.
    2. The clock has stopped, just doesn't run.
    3. The view select switch shows battery ( with no menu Toggle available), trip 2 on BOTH position 1 AND 2

    I tried on/off, battery disconnected/connected. Bike starts and temp, mph, rev counter all work. Is there a reset or something I can try?

    Help please.

    Thanks

    I am not aware of a reset button but you could disconnect the battery then remove the plugs that go into the dash, spray them with contact cleaner and re insert. Maybe your Scottish winter got the better of them.

    Thanks Kevin, Winter only started today with a pathetic attempt of 0'C and the bike hasn't been out in even that.

    I have tried the connections already without luck.

    I am dreading that it may be something more sinister.

    While waiting to connect your new battery, short the positive and negative terminals together overnight.

    If the fault still persists, unplug the Dashboard, clean the contact and reinsert several times.

    Hi again,

    Tried all sorts and still missing functionality. Anyone know how to go about reflashing ecu from a standing start.

    Or where to get another.

    Cheers

    Reflashing ECU won't make the dash work. Dash is of itself an ecu, sort of. I would try dash on a different Griso 1st. Does bike start OK now?

    Yes, the bike starts and rides fine. it shows mph and rev counter both working.

    the clock does not leave 00.00 and function button does nothing.

    cheers

    Does sound like a dash issue. Have you tried cleaning the multipin plug that plugs into the dash yet?

    Hi

    Yes, I have also removed and refitted it several times. Might I be missing something?

    Once you have gone through everything you can on the bike. You may need to send the dash to these folks. https://www.carmo.nl/

    I know it's no consolation, but I had a Breva 1100 that I removed the battery for several months. When the battery was installed the odometer jumped from 26,980 kM to 335,544 kM and froze. I never leave bikes without a battery connected for long periods anymore.

    It doesn't take much current to maintain the dash. Find 12v in dry cells or whatever, and place that temporarily across the battery terminals (observing polarity of course). Or get your new replacement battery now.

    Having the ECU disconnected will do no harm.

    For the past 10 years i have disconnected my battery in my griso an the wife's breva to keep them in a warm place and the bikes stay in the cold garage. I never had any problems reconnecting them. all works fine. I do make an efford in disconnecting and reconnecting the leads without Sparks and in one try.

    Ok - I put the Giso 1100 all back together yesterday with the replacement (used) ECU, battery in and fired up and ran fine. A little rough to at first because of lack of fuel but then good. Took it for a test ride and all good. My original problem was not re-starting when hot and left standing for an hour or so with various random symptoms. - So Ive been through it and got advice and think it was a bad earth to the ECU and possibly water damage in the ECU. More test rides to do to confirm reliability of the fix but wow enjoyed the Griso experience once again
    Just for info related to previous posts - the dash still works fine after months disconnected, keys worked fine with replacement ECU. -
    Now it is running fine to my knowledge, but Question is, the replacement ECU is from an 06 bike when mine is an 08, so should the ECU be updated to a newer 'flash' or whatever - in the UK ?

    If you have software to reset the TPS, it should be able to show the version in the ECU. There are downloads of various maps available on line, it's up to you whether you want to trust them. Whatever you do, always back up the existing map first before replacing it.

    Good to hear the dash (another ECU) survived the months of being disconnected.

    Dang, I have the same problem as Raggitash! Had my battery disconnected and on a battery tender over winter (I have no power in my garage).

    Got the bike going again last weekend and since then my dash only works partially - speedo, odo and rev counter work, the rest is dead.

    With the trip switch in "Mode" the LCD display goes blank.

    Raggitash, have you made any progress with your situation?

    Hi guys,

    I sent my dash to Carmo. They were very helpful to the point of send a video clip.

    Turns out there is nothing wrong with the dash. I have just refitted it and still have the problem.

    Koen at Carmo gave me some checks to do around the three way switch and I am not getting the voltage responses he described.

    I want to check my earths but don't know where they all are, Can you help?

    I would also like to know where the mode button terminates so that I can check that as well.

    Looked at the cct drawing but it is not clear. Help would be gratefully received.

    Thanks Raggi
