I have fitted the unit, wired it up to the battery on the bike and it worked perfectly. Now it will only work on the internal battery. when I mount it on the bike it won't switch to external power, it just runs on the internal battery. I have to charge it up on the mains and if it's over four hours ..........it goes off because the battery has expired. I have cleaned the contacts and checked the fuse and all is ok. Help!??
On the lower side of the zumo there are copperm coloured contact points which have to fit to uprising points of the holder on the motorcycle/car. These contact points are very vulnrable to pollution. Clean them dry and use a tiny bit of contact spray. My first zumo was replaced under warranty because of damage to the contact points due to a leaking battery

Possible causes for a dead battery or it not holding charge
1. Battery has lost its ability to hold a charge (dead battery)
2. Charging system on unit has failed (battery cables, alternator, or alternator control board)
3. Stuck key on the display is causing a constant draw from the battery.
For any further troubleshooting you can contact our Technical Support Team and we would be happy to help you,
tes the charger in another receptacle wall, if is ok , test the receptacle wall if is open, reset the circuit breaker .
if his system use batteries replace, or see if they are o.k use alkaline only.
Other is everything is o.k see if the board is fault or look for some wires loose, or disconnect.
Let me know
The pulsing could be the alarm module. When bike is turned of, you will get small draw for a minute or so and then it should go very low, below a miliamp or so. This is the alarm module setting itself. Check for this. Is battery gone flat while checks were being made? Make sure ignition switch is on when disconnecting battery if alarm (Stock HD) is fitted. If not, alarm module gets confused and can cause problems. The corrct procedure for disconnecting a battery from an alarm fitted HS is - alarm off, ignition switch on, pull main fuse (Maxi Fuse), disconnect battery. To fit, ignition stitch off, connect battery then install main fuse.
You have a drain of power somewhere. Check all the earths that you can reach. Do you have a dodgy alarm that may have water in the connections, or a damp ignition switch. Use some WD40 to obtain better contacts.
If this unit has not been used for that period of time then the 6v batt has died ans needs replacing call National Gym Parts @ 1-800-496-7278 to order part# LC001.5
HERE IS THE PROCEDURE TO REPLACE THE BATT:
Tilt the bike on its side, remove mounting screws securing the battery to the bracket. Remove the battery just enough to access and disconnect the black (neg) wire from the (-) terminal and the red (pos) wire form the (+) terminal. Replace battery and reverse procedure when installing battery
first... check to make sure you don't have blown fuse.. using an electrical tester also, pierce the wire going into the units(if testing blinkers.. horn.. etc.. make sure you actually turn the blinker or horn on etc) this will tell you if you're getting power to them.. if no power trace wire back to connectors with the tester, checking connections etc... (you can get the electrical tester for about $5, clips onto battery and has small light that turns on when it's getting current to where you pierce the wires)
internal failure possibly on power side, lower than 300A fault current so unit could not trip i/p protection and as fault was post ac section, continued to burn internally. it just broke no breakers tripped out so it kept drawing current until the fault burnt away.
maybe this is what happened, need to know a lot more info to change hypothisis
I misunderstood, I thought your battery was discharging DURING the ride. Put your meter in current mode. connect one lead to the battery and one lead to your TomTom wiring while the unit is in the cradle. How much current is is drawing? Now remove the TomTom from the cradle. Is it still drawing the same amount? If not, the TomTom is drawing power even while off and that is draining your battery.
get a test light and a schematic. unplug stator plug.start bike ,make sure battery has full charge. test each pin on connector that is attatched to the 3 yellow wires.should light on each pin. if all good check for burn marks around connectors, front & back sides, and on wires. if no power on yellow wires, stator problem. if power, plug connector together, now test for voltage in wires on the voltage regulator side of the connector, to see if the voltage is making it through the connector.if there is power to volt. regulator,test w/ multi meter across battery leads to see if there is charging voltage to battery,approximately 13-15 volts. if only battery voltage(12.2 or less) while bike is running,voltage regulator is no good.if charging good, but bike wont start after prolonged sitting(say overnight) a system amp draw test is needed to see if something is staying powered up while bike is not running, drawing down battery.
