What does alarm F1 or FI indicates ? *urgent*
 
Hi. This is my new problem. I write these thread after my bike got towed.
My bike couldnt start at all, and showing F1 or FI ? What does it indicates ? What do i have to replace now ? :confused:

Need advice. Thank you. :confused:

Make? Model? Year?

Description of any mods you or another has done, or attempted to do to the bike?

Method of towing? (i.e. did they just throw it in the back of a truck, hang it from the tow-hook, were REAL careful with it, etc.)

FI = Fuel Injection, most likely.

If it REALLY was that urgent for you, you would be talking to the nearest dealer.

FI indicates a fuel injection problem or failure.

There likely is nothing you can do about that yourself........so you will probably need to call a dealer anyway.......and arrange for another "tow".

As i refer to the GXSR manual book, FI was Fault Indicators .. not fuel injection, so i got the faulty code using dealer mode, C42 was the code and refers to ignition switch :confused:

If you can not get a shop manual and work on it yourself then you need to get it to a shop. From what i can find (Google is your friend) its an error in the electrical system used at start up.

My day is complete. I learned something new. ;)

Look farther in your manual. There might be a section on "what to do if the FI light comes on........or if it won't start."

If the bike has a security system like most cars do now, it might be a fault in the ignition security lock out system. You aren't trying to use a "duplicate" key to start it, are you ??

I think you're gonna HAVE to find a qualified shop to fix it.
