Question about 2008 Honda CBR 600 RR

1 Answer

The FI light blinks after turning on the ignition. The pattern of blinks corresponds to a hi/low voltage problem with the EGCV. Ive eliminated possibility of open circuit, loose wire or short. The servo motor falls within standard resistance and is recieving adequate voltage. However, when the problem is present, it puts an extra .6V draw on the battery while running. (12.5V vs 13.1V) as indicated by a voltage meter. The only possible explanation seems to be a bad ECM. Are there any other explanations besides a bad ECM, and would a bad ECM cause the draw on the battery? How do I know if my ECM is bad or not? Please help. SMRI #313

Hi, Edwardsotoli you Mensa folks get all tied up in numbers that may be accurate but misleading, let me start with the fact that ECM's are virtually bullet proof and barring a nuclear meltdown are never the problem. I would be looking real hard at your EGCV valve/servo for wiring, adjustment or faulty integrity issues.

SOURCE: 2004 Honda Metropolitan Scooter - cold engine starting problem

i had this problem before,i suggest first replacing starter valve w/ a chinese equivelent part(cheaper than honda but the same),can also replace w/ manual enrichener plunger, but it is inconveinent to access, or what i did was seal off plunger hole and squirted gas through fuel line and a primer bulb, teeing off from main fuel line run spigot fitting into plunger bore and jb weld to seal.now mount primer bulb in convienent location.definitely an unauthorized repair and a little tedious to fabricate ,but works like a charm, as those starter valves are notorious for not working correctly.

SOURCE: Ignition Coil for Honda 125 CM /84

The 12v coil on a 6v system will only give a weak spark at best. The coil in the photo should work very well assuming the wires are long enough. Any 6v twin coil should work. If you fit another coil and the bike has spark but will not start, swap the wires at the points. Don't purchase a condenser unless the old one has gone bad. If needed, get a 6v condenser matching the old one.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks from Dallas Texas!

SOURCE: 84 honda shadow 700 vt lights are unpredictable

There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 99 cbr 1100xx short in head light system causing

the problem is within the wiring system. there is a loom that gathers all wires which is used at time of manufacture to test that the bike has been wired properly. once tested the loom is capped and has no other usage. this loom is not depicted in the wiring diagram and over time it degrades and shorts out causing the FI light to come on. the fix is to cut it out. I went through this on my 99 Blackbird. I found this fix on the blackbird site posted by a fellow from Britain.

A 2007 rancher 420 my fi light gives 9 blinks. Do you know what code this is and what it means


Most likely you water in one of the connectors, this code is for voltage high or voltage is low at the IAT sensor (air temp sensor in the air box) It could be the sensor connector that is at fault or the control unit back by the battery.

Hi, Nickey_star this is above my pay grade so for this situation, I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

TV won't turn on


the first thing that you need to do is to open the back cover of your tv.Go to the power supply section it is separate board where the power cord is connected.Using a multitester,plug in the power cord and measure for the output supply.see if the 5vdc ,12vdc and 24vdc are present..if one of this output is missing,replace the power supply board But if the output voltage are complete,replace the inverter board,It is a board that supplies the high voltage to the backlights of your monitor/screen....You can also try to reset the system of your tv by pressing the the small switch mounted on the main board press it twice while the power is on...tnx and good luck!

WHY IS THE SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT ON IN MY SATURN??


The Check Engine light will light when the ECU stores a trouble code.
Counting the Flashes
To retrieve trouble codes, turn the ignition key to the "on" position with the engine OFF.
The Check engine light will flash many short blinks. The total number of blinks equals the code number. For example, flash,pause, flash,flash = code 12.If more than one code is stored, the Check engine light will flash the codes in sequence (lowest to highest) with a pause between each code. The codes will repeat until the key is turned to the OFF position.

11 Transaxle codes present 12 Diagnostic check only 13 Oxygen sensor circuit 14 Coolant sensor/high temperature 15 Coolant sensor/low temperature 17 PCM fault - pull-up resistor 19 6X signal fault (92-95 models) 21 Throttle position sensor-voltage high 22 Throttle position sensor-voltage low 23 IAT circuit low 24 VSS circuit-no signal 25 IAT circuit-Temp out of high range 26 Quad driver output fault 32 EGR system fault 33 MAP sensor - voltage out of range high 34 MAP sensor - voltage out of range low 35 IAC - rpm out of range 41 Ignition control circuit-open or shorted 42 Bypass circuit - shorted or open 41/42 IC control circuit grounded/bypass open 43 Knock sensor circuit shorted or open 44 O2 sensor indicates lean condition 45 O2 sensor indicates rich condition 46 Power steeringpressure circit(91 models)open or shorted 49 High idle indicates vacuum leak 51 PCM memory error 53 System voltage error 55 A/D error 58 trans fluid temperature too high 59 Trans fluid temperature too low 66/67 A/C pressure sensor 81 ABS message fault 82 PCM internal communication fault

Engine stalls(dies-down) upon blinking the headlights...


you have a bad ground,or a battery voltage that is so low,that the 20 amps from the high beams circuit is pulling the voltage down so low that the ignition can not run properly.
put on the rear defogger,does it do it? if not,look for the ground junction common to ignition and the high beam circuits.

Fi indicator comes on at high revs


The indicator will give you the information you need to find the source of the problem. The error code should be stored in memory
Remove the seat and find the service connector and short the two pins with piece of wire or paperclip.
Then turn on run then the ignition and count the number of 'blinks' that are indicated on the FI light - 'long' binks are the 'tens' digit and short blinks are the units; e.g. one long and two short would be 12 etc.
There may be more than one error, so get all the codes till it repeats.
There are too may codes to list here - post back with your results and will look them up

1. CHECK THE MAIN FUSEAND FI INGN FUSE IF OK THEN GO TO 2.
2. MAKE SURE ENGINE STOP SWITCH IS NOT ON.
3.MAKE SURE THAT FI RELAY IS CLOSING. TURN ON KEY SWITCH AND THE FI LIGHT SHOULD COME ON. THEN CHECK TO SEE IF 12VOLTS IS AT RED/WHITE WIRE COMING FROM RELAY ( RELAY IS UNDER THE SEAT)
NOW IF THIS SO YOU SHOULD HAVE SPARK AT THE PLUGS. IF NOT SOMETHING IS SHORTING THE ENGINE CONTROL MODULE. MAKE SURE THE BIKE IS IN NEUTRAL
AND THE IGNITION PULSE GENERATOR IS GOOD

Hi thanks for replying


The clicks you are referring to sound like High Voltage Leaks or Arcing. While it is clicking check for sparks around the high voltage transformer only with your eyes from a distance. If you see sparks shut it off immediately.
