Reading Codes from the C50

Postby Doc » February 25th, 2010, 10:03 am

You can use a paper clip to jump the "dealer wires" located behind the painted plastic cover on the right side of the bike, directly below the seat. Find the white connector beneath this cover. With the bike off, use the paper clip to short out the white/red striped wire and the black/white striped wire. Don't start the bike, just turn the ignition to on as you are watching the readout on the speedometer.

If your bike is stock and all is fine is should read only "C00".

Here are the codes from the service manual.

c00 none
c12 crankshaft positions sensor, pickup coil signal, signal generator
c13 intake air pressure sensor #2, for front cylinder
c14 throttle position sensor
c15 engine coolant temp sensor
c17 intake air pressure sensor #1 for rear cylinder
c21 intake air temp sensor
c23 tip over sensor
c24 ignition signal, coil #1 for rear cylinder
c25 ignition signal, coil #2 for front cylinder
c28 secondary throttle valve actuator
c29 secondary throttle valve position sensor
c31 gear position signal switch
c32 injector signal #1 for rear cylinder
c33 injector signal #2 for front cylinder
c41 fuel pump control system, fuel pump, fuel pump relay
c42 ignition switch signal, anti theft
c44 heated oxygen sensor
c49 pair control solenoid valve

Obviously all the codes wouldn't apply to a Volusia due to it having a carb, but can you access the computer on a Vol to diagnose errors the same way?

Where's the computer on a Volusia? Must be a very small unit

This wouldn't apply to the Volusia at all.

this is for 2005 and newer bikes.

C50's only, not Volusias
