PostSubject: Battery Question   Battery Question Icon_minitime1Sat Oct 01, 2022 8:29 am

Hello - Went for a ride this morning and stopped at a gas station to fill up.  When I tried to start the bike I just heard a loud "click" and got the APMG 0023 code.  Very similar to what happened when my previous battery died.  Current battery (Parts Unlimited 2113-0075) is less than 1 year old and is always kept on a charger when not in use.  After trying to cycle few starting a few times and getting the same result, I removed the battery leads and reinstalled and the bike fired right up.  When I got home, I let it sit for an hour and tried to start again, and it fired up.  Battery charge indicates 14.2.  Any ideas as to what the problem could have been?

Thanks,

Eric

Lose connection? A not so loud click could be Startus interruptus. I don’t know about that error code but one of our experts certainly will.

It could have been the connection.  They were loose to the point that I could unscrew w/ my fingers.  So that very well could have been it.

Yep that won't have helped
Under high power draw a loose connection can 'lose' 1-2v - critical when you are starting.

Always worth checking, redoing and measuring the resistance of the earth connections (battery and engine)

everyone checks the 12v live, no one checks the earth/ground BUT IT'S CIRCUIT SO THEY DO THE SAME JOB AS EACH OTHER!!!!!

Mine had problems with the ground. Searched for ages, was a broken bolt in the end. The thread was too short and it ended up being a bad connection.

That is the bolt that also holds the starter moter cover.
