coding adapter cable

Postby paneuro » Sat Jun 05, 2021 6:07 pm

Hi, Does anybody know where I can obtain an adapter cable so I can clear the faults on my 56 plate 1200rt. I have a brake failure light which won't go out. the bike has been standing in the garage since 2018 and I had to put a new battery on it. When it went for the MOT the light stayed on. It still passed as there is nothing wrong with the brakes but I am putting it up for sale and would like to fix any problems before I put it on the market. thanks Paneuro.

Codding hey..... something fishy here I think....

I would have linked to hex etc... but as you’re selling, either pop to a dealer, or take the opportunity to use someone’s GS-911.
Many advertise it for £25 for one use.

Hi Mark, thanks for the advice, I think I only need the adaptor cable as I already have the Carly tool and the app. Not sure yet if it covers the Bmw bikes but it does most of the cars but I will find out and let you know. thanks Paneuro.

Your ABS unit will likely have stuck brushes presuming your bike has the later version AFTER servo ABS brakes

The Brushes stick back in their holders and there is no circuit for the ABS controller to identify so it lights the ABS fault lamp
I presume your ABS lamp is on as soon as you switch on your ignition no flashing lamps at all

There are two ways you can do this After many different attempts and becoming completely pissed off with BM's cheap parts sourcing that leads to this recurring fault

I found that a Fiesta Mk9 ABS pump will mount to the ABS unit in place of the Original ABS motor and solves this problem for good I used 4 studs but on reflection 2 would have been fine when leaving the raised aluminium blocks

A couple of GENTLE raps with a spanner or small hammer might free them up to get the light off But it will come back

Thanks for that, I will give the hammer cure a go first and see how that goes, I assume these pump motors are sealed and can't be opened when you suggest the hammer surgery? is the ABS pump under the tank? also I have a feeling this has servo brakes but i'm not sure, I will have to have a look.
thanks for the information I appreciate it. Paneuro.

Servo integral ABS has 2 abs Lamps which are separate on the dash When you key on One flashes 7 times and then goes steady until it "sees" Wheel rotation via the sensors and will then go out

The other lamp blinks on and off until it sees wheels turning Fast flashing = fault code

Which could be that you are applying a brake lever?

That steady red lamp is usually the next evolution of ABS after Servo brakes Send me your Frame number by Private Message and I can check your build date

Hi Jaythro, firstly you'll have to teach me how to send a private message as I have never done it before. Cheers Paneuro.
