Engine light on after replacing dead battery

Hi Today i went to start my '07 Victory Vegas this morning & it wouldn't start. It sounded like the battery was dead. So i took the battery to a local auto parts store & had them test it. They said it had a full charge. I brought it home cleaned the terminals & bolts put it back in the bike & it started right up but now the engine light is always on. I was told it's a code that the battery was dead & I would have to take it to the Victory dealer so they can clear the code. Is there any way I can clear it so I don't have to pay the service fee. Also after I put the battery in it seems to idle low. Does the have something to do with code as well or do I need to just adjust the idle a little. Thank You Very Much.

Hi, Anonymous you should be able to clear the codes yourself with the speedometer and resetting the Throttle Position Sensor should fix the idle for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Victory, despair not, for a mere zero $ you can download another one.

SOURCE: Engine light on after replacing dead battery

This just happened to me yesterday - except my battery was dead (5 years old). After putting a new battery in it, engine light was on. Found this in a Victory forum, tried it and it worked; Enginer light is off, now. Apparently, low voltage can cause it to lose calibration with Throttle Position Sensor:

I found this info on how to do a manual TPS reset:

Key on, switch on, engine off
Slow 5 count rotate throttle from closed to wide open
Hold throttle wide open for slow 5 count
Let throttle SNAP shut/closed
Cycle kill switch (off then on)
Start bike, and enjoy the ride

2006 vegas 8-ball makes clicking noise when trying to start


Sounds like you have either a dead battery or loose connection causing the starter to click but not fully engage. Assuming you have a good battery (it should read 12+ volts). Clean and tight the connections to the battery? Sometimes the ground wire to the frame may need tightened. Once you try these things, one at a time, checking to see if the bike will start. let me know what you get.

Here is an idea. Check the connections between the battery and the car's ground and the starter. Then find the ground cable which connects the engine to the car and check the connections there as well. Often times odd ball electrical problems are caused by a faulty ground, especially when there is a starter issue. May help, costs nothing but a few moments of your time, and once in a dozen times it is the problem.

Hi, Thepokerboyz the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation, I would call or visit my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.
