Lifeless 2001 F4S! : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

After three months of inactivity(due to winter shutdown) I tried to start her up today. Although I expected the battery to be down on power I have found that there is no life at all - zilch! My Optimate charger suggests that the battery is FINE. Initially suspecting the Datatool immobiliser I then noticed that not only does the immobiliser not respond when required to arm/disarm but the bike doesn't even go through the "pre-flight" check of speedo/rev counter, etc. Anyone have any ideas as to what might be the source of the problem? Regards, Graham Herbertson

How about the alarm fuse? The datatool one should be located on the r/h side near the main fuse box (probably just behind). It's a single fuse in a small rubber compartment. You'll need a 10 amp mini- blade fuse to replace it. Regards, Bill

could also be lack of earth/ground. did you disconnect the negative terminals from the battery?

I'll follow your advice this weekend when I'm back from business. In the mean time "thanks" and I may be back for more advice after the weekend! Regards Graham
