Not an open wire. What is the charge on the battery. Sounds like maybe the voltage regulator is defective and the battery is draining back through it possibly. Disconnect it or pull the main fuse and see what happens then.

SOURCE: Instrument Cluster needles stuck -- Electrical Problems

Needles stuck indicative of instrument cluster complete failure. Cause unknown. This is second instrument cluster that has failed on this bike, first one failed at about 3000 miles, twenty-two months ago. This "new" one died in mid May 2008. Received word from Ducati North America that they will accept the warranty claim for the toasted instrument cluster!!! Am still concerned about cause...this is second instrument cluster for this S2R800. Seems to be an issue prevalent on some of these late model Monsters. Will update more after instrument cluster gets in and replaced by Bloodworth Ducati in Nashville.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try recharging the battery again. Remove the connector to the voltage regulator. Start/run the bike. If it lasts more than "3-5 minutes" then you have just confirmed a defective regulator. The voltage regulator would look something like below image.

SOURCE: anti lock brake lights flashing simultaneously

I would check the brake pads first to see if they are worn badly, spent a lot time once learning that will cause ABS lights to flash!
Grounding the middle pin on the ABS diagnostic plug , turn on the ignition and mash both brakes to see if the bulb checker light goes out! Very important, left out of procedure on IBMWR, if the red bulb checker light doesn't go out you have a blown tail light or stop light bulb and the ABS won't reset!
Or you have a bad bulb checker module underneath the seat. If the red light goes out then the ABS lights should go to flashing then push the ABS reset button and hold for slow count of 10 or so. Release and try it. Hope this helps!

1985 Honda aspencade battery doesnt seem to charge


How old is the battery. Unfortunately it's one of those things that need to be replaced every season if your bike is stored during the winter. Once you have a new one and it reaches winter again, do your best to crank and run your bike at least once a week and let if idle for 20-45min.

Battery will not take charge, but can jump start and it runs, but does not keep charge


Possible charging coil under the flywheel issue, or with the retifier, there is a tool called a negative shunt, this will quickly tell you if there is any charge to the battary from the engine

Good idea put it on a trickle charge, however, the battery had enough charge init to start the bike initially, and the bike should have charged the battery after 10-20 miles, worth checking the charge rate to the battery from the rectifier,

Won't start without charger on battery.


when you charge the battery make sure that its cable is is loosen from the motor coz it can damage your charging system. on your case you have damage it already that's your light dims whenever you rev the rpm up. so change your voltage regulator of your charging system, charge the battery and it is done easy.

Ducati 620s - Won't Start - Dead


The battery has died over the winter. Indicators staying on is a sure fire signal of low battery charge.

The battery may have enough amperage to get the headlight and the horn working, but the indicator relays take a bit more.

New battery I'm afraid.
