    ABS & TC lights flashing at speed

    Afternoon all - anyone else suffered this minor niggle? ABS & TC lights flashing at start up (as they should) then extinguishing above 5km/hr (again, as they should) but after a mile or two the ABS & TC lights start flashing again, and does not go away.
    I did have a minor drop early last week, so I wonder if a connector or fuse has since become dislodged, although I rode the bike a couple of times since the drop, with no issue.

    Any ideas?

    No probs - seemed to have sorted itself out - one of those odd 'leccy or software glitches  :138:

    Spoke too soon - in fact the ABS and TC lights now come on continuously at speed, and yesterday the speedo would only register zero regardless of speed.  :232:  Turns out the front wheel speed sensor wire has been rubbing on the wheel and nearly worn the wire in two.  On further investigation, it seems as though the cable retention elements within the mudguard.....well they seem to be AWOL in functional terms at least!  :230:  All sent to my local Ducati dealer, hoping for authorisation this afternoon.  The sensor alone is 127.82, although you can get them S/H on a popular internet auction site for 40 to 50.  If it's not authorised, then I will certainly go S/H.

    Will have alook at mine today. A couple weeks ago I did 15 miles on a gravel road at slow speed. I bit later, back on pavement and up to speed my DTC light starts blinking. It went away after about 10 miles and has never happened again.
    We're lost but we're making great time!

    All signed off by Ducati, including new front mudguard, so really can't complain.  In the meantime, my dealer allowed me to repair the wire damage so I could at least have an operational speedo, and sure enough once cut, stripped, soldered and shrink wrapped back together, all is well, until replaced by Ducati.  Also the wire hasn't moved from it's carefully installed location on a couple of long rides so probably the mudgaurd is not required, but I won't say no.....
