Al the troubles with my bike, flashing dash, traction control blinking, cold start with 1000 to 3000 t/m
was caused by the coils.
With new coils, ecu, computers and dashboard the bike is oke.

Interesting! What are coils though?

He meant the ignition coils. They live on top of the spark plugs.

Time to go to the dealer. The good one. Maybe you found out why it was so cheap?

BTW I leave my key in all the time, but it's in a locked garage behind a fence, big dogs, etc. That's why I used to keep it on a battery Tender, until I put the Shorai Li-PO battery in there...

The immobilizer light goes out after a day or so anyway...

Well has anyone else ever had a low battery? Does the screen flash and say ERRORS? If so, that's probably what this is. If not, it's probably not.

I'm going to go pickup a 12V battery charger from PepBoys today, charge the battery and see it that solves it. If not, I'll have it towed to the good Ducati dealer. Wonder if I could just have it towed to Ducati North America... I only live 5 minutes away from them as opposed to 35 miles to the closest decent Ducati dealer.

Call them! At least they can give you some advice. Your failure is fairly common, could be no more than a loose ground wire. Or a bad ignition coil, as our Nederlander friend found out. I put a guard over the one on my front cylinder.

And I would recommend going to a bike shop for a Battery Tender, the bigger 1.5 amp version. These are made for bikes.

Sorry for the delayed response. I work some weird works shifts that move around a lot.

The bike was purchased back in July, new. Currently it only has about 1400 miles on it. Sorry to hear about yours too, Hopeful. Crap…I'm hoping it only has something to do the recent ECU update, but I doubt it since others have had it done for awhile with no issues.

I spoke with the dealer yesterday and he said they would dig into it today. So hopefully I hear something soon.

Oh yeah, my bike stays plugged into a Battery Tender, so I haven't ran into a dead battery yet to see if it causes issues. I was riding when my bike flipped out.

I have had a flat battery, (in fact, if I don't keep it plugged into the tender it goes flat after about 7 days) when I keyed it on I could hear the flap valve actuate, the dash looked ok and then when I hit the button no action other than dash doing weird error stuff. My guess is that this may be your problem. I spoke to the dealer about it and they reckon the battery is on the way out and they have asked me to take it in, but that is a 4 hour trip so I just keep the tender plugged in and all is good.

Dead battery after 7 days not plugged in? You may have a bad cell in that battery. Prior to moving to my current location and having a garage of my own, my Hyper' sat in a storage shed for the entire month of December in northern Virginia, never being fired up, and it started right up when I grabbed in January. I merely keep it plugged into the Battery Tender because they cycle the battery which will give it a longer life.

If you're bike is still under warranty, I would see if your dealer can replace that free of charge for you.

Never had mine on a tender and it gets left four weeks a time without starting due to my working away, never had a problem. Just hope now the heated grips have been fitted its still ok.

Happy to report mine was an easy fix. It's definitely just the battery. I put a battery tender on it for the last 7 hours and it just fired up perfectly!

Going over to the local moto shop to get the battery replaced with a Shorai 18A today so that it doesn't happen again.

I contacted the guy I bought the bike from and he immediately suspected it was the battery. He said that he didn't ride it very often and had it on a battery tender, but suspected the tender might of not been very high quality. So it's pretty clear that the tender he was using messed up the battery and was perhaps overcharging it or who knows what. So I'm going to get the battery replaced and should be all set. And he was very standup about it and is going to cover the cost of the new battery.
