Cruise Not Working

I completed the install of my new bars on Saturday. I installed Chubby WO515's and had to internally wire the bars. I got the wires pulled thru without too much trouble, but I was really not very comfortable with how tight they were pulling them through. I had initially intended to leave the wires external, but these bars do not have the indent on the bottom of them, just a hole to internally wire.

In a nutshell I got it back together, went for a spin and everything was fine. Later that same day I decided to go for a longer ride and the check engine light came on. I checked the fluids and stuff just to be sure and everything checked out so I figured it was something I did with the wiring. As I continued on my way I tried the cruise control and it was not working. The on/off switch works & illuminates, and the icon on the tach illuminates orange, but does not change to green.

I have a few things I'm going to try, but is the TBW wiring harness house anything to do with the Cruise Control? The TBW wiring is what I was most concerned about when pulling thru the bars.

If I have to pull everything back out of the bars I think I'm going to drill a hole on the bottom of the bars on the throttle side so I can run the harness on the outside.

If I were you, I would check that the brake light switch that is operated by the brake lever were working properly. The Switch easy to break and the cruise will not function if it thinks the brakes are being applied.

Second, clear all of the codes from the computer (codes can be scrolled through in the odometer window). You should be able to search this site for instructions on that procedure, I don't have it in front of me. In my experience, it is not uncommon for some codes to show up after a bar install. Just clear them and they will go away. I suspect it has something to do with unplugging everything and plugging it back in.

Hopefully those two items will take care of your problems.

Thanks Roadie. I printed off the info a little while ago for checking and clearing the codes and that is where I wanted to start. Brake lights and everything else for that matter seems to be working correctly. Hopefully clearing the codes will do the trick, but if not I think I can tear it apart and put it back together in record time now.

I ran the diagnostic check and got the following error codes P1510, P2122, & P2138. The 2122 & 2138 are both twist grip sensor related so I'm assuming I tugged a little too hard pulling the wires thru. Looks like I'll be pulling last weekends work apart and redoing it.

I had the same codes on one of my installs, cleared the codes and everything was fine.

Did the codes return after you cleared them?

Cruise

I just installed cruise on my 2010. Theres not much to it. The wire harness off the handle bar controls which connects in the fairing and the on/off switch which the wires go into the same plug as the Ass. switch. 12 post plug I believe and thats it . I know that little green TBW @$#!^ connector gave me problems. good luck

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

Hey Hull, I have had the same problem,engine light comes on,no cruise controll and limited power.The bike runs but not at full power. Do you have the same probem. I have seen a few posts about this.One problem was a poor connection at the ecm or the pins on the plug to the ecm have a little corrosion on them.Usually if you cycle the ignition. It will reset.Still a pain.

They returned. I cleared them and took it for a short ride. The engine light came back on almost immediately after starting the bike.

The only difference I have from you is I don't seem to have a limited power problem. The power seems fine. The P1510 code did have something to do with the fuel injection so it's possible the power is a little off and I just didn't notice it.

Looks like I created my own problem here . I'm fairly certain I pulled one or several wires apart when pulling them through the new bars at this point. Tear down begins tonight . I'll report back what I find, but I think I already know what it is.

Sorry to hear you are still having problems.

If you are still using the original TBW unit, you can replace it with the SE version which eliminates the green connector in the middle. That will make it a little easier pulling the wire bundle back through the bars.

Keep us posted on what you find, maybe the next person can learn something as well.
