  • heated grips and seat not working

    i have a 2007 airbag navi that has heated grips and seats... the only problem is that none of them are working at this time.
    if i am not wrong there is a sensor that does not allow the heaters to work till a certain external temperature is reached.... it has to be a bit cold ..... :-)
    i also have been told that usually what goes bad ,is the left grip and that does not allow the other grip and the seat to be heated correct?
    at this point today i tried to look in to it but i shortly realized that i have to open to many things and i am not used to the 1800 that is new to me.... any suggestion in how to fix this problem? beside that i belive at this point it would be better to get a pair of new grips... what are the passages to do in order to change them? thanks a lot and if any pictures or tutorials are available....

    Mine aren't working again and I'm going to take it to the dealer this winter only because its still under warranty. I agree with you heated gear is better

      Heated grips on motorcycles don't seem robust or reliable... why is it so hard to get this right?

        You correct. They will not heat if the ambient temp is above a certain point and also about any one component shutting down the works
        If it were me, I wouls check fuses and then test each component for short or open circuit starting with the throttle side grip since those wires see the most flex.
        Also, check the connectors on the heat control rotary switches especially if the top shelter's been off recently.

          Check the connection under your seat they do work there self loose and that shut down the heaters. Happen to me a couple of times once i upgraded my seat it came with a better connector then the stock one. Haven had any problems since. I did tape the stock one shut and it helped.

            Have you checked your fuses, first off. Checked the relays? These are places to start.

                Don't know if I should start this here or in a new thread.
                My seat/grips heater stopped working when Riding in the rain (downpour really) and the ABS light started flashing. Shutting the bike off seems to recycle things and all works well for a while. In the last couple of weeks, it's happened the same way maybe a dozen times. Think it could maybe be the ECM?
                When it won't reset I'll take it in a let them have a look/see while still under warranty.

                  Mine was the fuse, don't know what caused it but once it was replaced I have not had a problem. Definitely noticed them not working. In the 30's and 40's when I leave for work these last few weeks.
