Cruise doesn't engage.. Sometimes - Passes diagnostic's test
Read through most of the other diagnostic post's here.
Speedometer dial is stable, does not waver at all.
Clutch lever always springs back to fully forward position. While riding, I tried pushing the lever forward while engaging cruise to no avail.
Check brake micro switches by glancing back (at night time) to see brake light coming on. They always work fine.
I adjusted the throttle & cruise cables per the manual settings earlier this year.
Set light goes out as soon as I start to release the throttle from the forward position during the diagnostic test.
It's an 03 but I checked the ABS speed sensor wire and it "looks" fine.
Didn't do an OHM's check though.
I always leave the cruise on/off switch on the on position. Red LED is always on.
When it acts up, I do try toggling it on & off. LED goes off & on.
It's been an intermittent (about 50/50) issue.
Tried yesterday and at first it wouldn't engage.
Kept pressing the set button (10-15 times) and got it to engage.
After engaging, it seems to surge a bit and speed's me up about 5mph faster than I was going.
Seems to do that when most of the time when this intermittent issue comes on.
I usually go thought the diagnostic test that night or the next day. Key off, set button to set, clutch, brakes, etc, ...... all the way to spinning the back wheel. Each time it passes the test normally.
Not sure if it's still doing this when engaged while riding but if I hold the toggle to set/accelerate, the cruise will kick off. If I want to speed up, I always need to bump the set/acc button a few times (i.e. bump for 2mph faster, bump again 2mph, etc.)
Same for deceleration. If I hold it down for a few seconds, it will decelerate until I let go, engage for a second or two then disengage.
Hope this description might help someone with troubleshooting.
About to do a KY to SC trip and would obviously like to have it working.
