FI light comes on and stays on

Fuel Injection (FI) light on tank comes on and stays on, meanwhile the digital display shows a blinking FI. When Clutch is pulled in idle is normal. The moment Clutch is released idle increases. Dealer has looked at it and provided no solution because they couldn't find a problem. Told me if it does it again to bring it bike is no longer under warranty and cannot afford labor cost for them to ''look'' at it anymore till I can review a solution to the problem. If I can get me an idea to what is gong on i will be most appreciative. thank you - DJ

Find a dealer who has an electronic code checker. All the dealer needs to do is read the codes and the computer diagnostic chip tells him what problem the sensors have detected.

Why is my if light staying on

FI , im guessing is going to stand for "fuel injection"

If the bike now sounds different it has probably got a problem with the fuel injection somewhere that the computer has picked up.

If the sound of the bike has changed it may have dropped 1 cylinder and that is why it sounds different all of a sudden.

It could be a simple blocked injector or water in the your fuel - a bad batch of fuel will play havoc with the fuel injection system on any vehicle.

When was the last time you bought fuel ? was this problem only after getting new fuel? when was the last time the bike was serviced?

id have the fuel system checked buy someone that knows what they are looking at.

My Displays F1 and the red light stays on?

"FI" stands for Fuel Injection. The sensors have detected a problem and the computer is sending a warning. You will need to take the bike to a dealer so they can read the codes to determine the problem.

While touring in France I occasionally got a FI warning light come up, if I pulled the clutch lever in turned the ignition key off waited a couple of seconds then restated it the fault was gone and some...

FI means Fuel Injection. The sensors in the injection system have sent a signal to the computer chip that manages the system. The chip is telling you that a problem is present via the FI light. Since it is intermittent it may be a borderline dirty air filter or a partially plugged vent tube. Anything too serious and the bike will not run. Just go to a dealer and have them check it out the next time it lights up.

The red light is on, and where the temp shows, it flashes "F1" or "FI". What does this mean?

hey mate, i had the same trouble with my bike came up red light with FI it ended up being the charging circuit and i had to replace the regulator/rectifier to fix it...
Im guessing the FI stands for fuel injection and there is not enough charge for it to run the fuel injection system...

could be the same problem with your bike, easiest way to check is to run a multi meter that is set to volts dc over the + & - on the battery and see what its got then start the bike and it should go fluctuate between 13.0v and 13.5v...

If it just stays on 12v and drops slowly it is not charging the battery!

The fi light comes on then off like it works but it loudup with gas

Okay. The bike loads up with gas. That is a problem with the fuel injection system. That is also what the FI (Fuel Injection) light is trying to tell you. The bike needs to go to a dealer to have them read the computer codes so you can find out what the computer controlled Fuel Injection system senses is wrong.

There is a FL light on the dash that stays on when the bike is running... 2004 kawasaki zx6-r

FI means Fuel Injection. The computer chip that controls the fuel injection system on your bike has detected a problem. It could be major or minor. You will need to take the bike to a dealer and have them read the codes to find out exactly what the problems are.

On the gage cluster what does F1 or FI mean

The Fl lamp lights up when the computer finds a malfunction in the programmed Fuel Injection. There are 33 different codes. The offending code is denoted by how many times the Fl light blinks.
Nine of the 33 codes do not show symptoms since the engine still runs okay. If the Fl light just stays on then the engine will not run because the computer will not let it run, (except in two cases).
"MIL" translates as "Malfunction Indicator Lamp ".

This is what the service manual says:

" The PGM-Fl MIL denotes the failure codes ( the number of blinks from 0 to 33 ). When the indicator lights for 1.3 seconds it is equivalent to 10 blinks. For example, a 1.3 second illumination and two blinks ( 0.5 second X 2 ) of the indicator equals 12 blinks. Follow code 12 on page 5-26.
When more than one failure occurs, the MIL shows the blinks in order of the lowest number to the highest number. For example, if the indicator blinks once, then two times, two failures have occurred. Follow codes 1 and 2 on page 5-12."

BOTTOM LINE > A blinking light that can't be understood, combined with instructions that can't be understood make the entire Honda "malfunction alert system" totally worthless and a pain in the neck to the owner. Why can't someone in Japan write a computer program that would render something like " Code 23 error " instead of a blinking light that means nothing because it is not user friendly.

You asked what the FI light means. It means you are forced to take your bike in for service at a Honda shop and pay big bucks to the dealer for something you could have done yourself for $12.00. This is a built-in money maker for Honda dealers.

New technology

The Fuel Injection technology will be featured in the Glamour FI which has a distinctive PGM - FI feature (Programmed Fuel Injection) a first in two-wheelers. This is an intelligent computer-controlled electronic fuel injection system which scans critical engine operating conditions through sensors and provides input to the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) to inject the accurate amount of fuel as per the requirement. The sensors include throttle position engine operating temperature intake air temperature, manifold absolute air pressure and crank angle. the Glamour FI has a Bank Angle Sensor, an industry first feature, is an important safety feature which cuts off the fuel supply and ignition, if the bike tips over (falls). Apart from these, the motorcycle has a FI Malfunction Indicator Lamp which diagnoses any malfunction of sensors and indicates the same to the rider and a LCD Fuel Gauge displays fuel level in the fuel tank which is easy to read and contemporary. Apart from the new FI technology, Hero Honda’s Glamour also showcases new body coloured grab rail and rear view mirrors.,,,
