    What I'm sure is when the the spanner will reappear. On the CARC bikes, it would show 6,000 miles/10,000 kM after the reset, but I suspect it is preprogrammed for odometer intervals on the Cali 1400.

    Anybody know for sure?

    On my Cali 1400 the spanner appeared at 10001, 20001,30001 and 40001 km irrespective of when it was reset. I have now reset it using the code you discovered (thank you!) at about 47 000 km and fully expect it to reappear at 50001.

    Thanks for the clarification. I suspected this was the case, it's good to have it confirmed,

    It will show up again 6000 miles after you reset it.

    Are you sure it's after 6,000 miles, and not just a multiple of 6,000 miles? I say this because before I discovered the code, I had a dealer reset it and change the speedometer to kilometers at the same time. Less than 1000 km later, the spanner reappeared. It stayed there until I could do it myself.

    I agree. Mine just came on after resetting it 4000 miles ago. Came on at 18700 miles. I think it's programmed for specific miles(km) at least on mine...

    My 2015 Ducati 1200S Monster has a similar code issue. It must be a European thing.....

    Thanks, Kiwi Dave! I just changed the oil on my 2016 Eldorado, and used that code to reset the indicator. I did this before the wrench icon appeared, about 200 miles shy of the service interval. I assume that it worked, as the code got me into the service menu. I also programmed some extra keys for the bike while I was in there. Any idea what the calibration menu item is for? I'm afraid to click on that one, might turn the bike into a very expensive paper weight.

    I doubt if you have reset your indicator, especially since it wasn't present to reset. Expect to see it in a couple of hundred miles again, and this time you can actually reset it.

    The calibration menu is for traction control, which relies on the relative rotation of each wheel for intervention. This would probably be necessary if you change the size of your tires, or some other drastic action. I got into there when looking for the elusive 24 hour clock option, which I now accept is probably a figment of my imagination.

    Thanks again, Dave. That wrench should probably appear by the end of the week, if the weather cooperates. Hopefully, I won't have any reason to use the calibration function, but it's good to know what it's for.

    Should you ever find a way to read error codes without a PADS tool, I would be extremely interested. My nearest dealer is about 2-3 hours away.

    Thanks Dave and to everyone else on this forum. I just referred back to this thread to reset the service coupon (wrench) for the second time. I think I have it in memory now. What a great forum this is. All helpful information from a bunch of knowledgeable old pros. My Ca 1400 is my first Guzzi and seeing the level of integrity on this forum I am quite comfortable with the choice.

    After reading thru this thread several times,and finally understanding it [ I've been in the repair business now for over 62 years of my life] ,and since I may shortly be an owner of a new 1400 Tourer,I have a question.My question is: since this calibration function button is used to clear this "WRENCH" which appears,can it also be used to identify other trouble codes???????? Thank you!! Dave!!!

    No, the calibration function does not clear the wrench icon. It's function is to calibrate the computer so that it can determine the distance each tyre covers per revolution. This information is then used to inform the traction control and/or the ABS when one of the tyres (normally the rear) is slipping.

    That's my understanding of it.

    Beware that calibration is not as easy as it looks. I mistakenly entered it when looking for the elusive 24 hr clock display (I never found that) when I should have been watching the road. A pain to correct.

    After reading the above threads,I thought the button was used to reset or shut off the wrench icon showing on the instrument cluster using the 34534 code.Or did I read it wrong???????????????And if that was the case,why couldn't it also be used [with another code] to read ECM codes.OR, are you saying that info to turn off the WRENCH ICON was incorrect??? I'm confused.I mean, if I do buy one of these machines,I do NOT wanna go into it blind.Follow me??? Please explain!! Thank you!! Dave!!!
