Engine management light on

Hi, Craig it should be noted that the reasons your check engine light constant or flashing, will or will not start, turns over or not conditions varies from the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work or event IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying bike down/crashes, rainstorms/bike washings just before EFI light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin, also carry the appropriate jumper wire to access fault codes to reduce the risk of being stranded or towed, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty Fuel Pump, fuse or system relay switch.
2. Battery starting to fail due to old age/damage, perform a load test.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Faulty switches/sensors: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
6. Check for generated fault codes.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.

How to put off engine check light for gilera nexus 500

Have someone get the error codes from your car's computer with an OBD or OBDII scan tool. That light means you have a problem that needs repair, and the error code will identify what's wrong.

My Gilera Nexus 500 developed annoying vibrations, which are particularly prominent at low speeds. Garage man could not find problem. Any idea what is causing them and how to fix them?

It could be a wheel balance problem, engine misbalance due to poor firing on one or more cylinders or a wheel bearing. Place the bike on a paddock stand to check for wheel balance and wheel bearing errors.

My gilera runner has nt got a spark i have changed the magneto flywheel spark plug but still no spark what could it be?

Check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.

The engine will not start for about 5 to 10 minutos, after a trip

this could be a bad starter solenoid  they are affected  by heat  when they start to fail  they usually act as if the battery is  going dead after a couple revolutions of the motor
