TC light permanently on

Hi All,
I'm running a '14 race bike which has had a Woolich Flash tune, bike runs fine, no flashing power or TC modes and I've done the holding A+B buttons check, with no fault codes indicated.
I can't get the orange TC light on the dash to go out, anybody had this before or any other ideas??
Also I have to start from a remote battery with the bike battery (small Li-po) discsonnected, guess this could throw it a wobble

Any advice appreciated

Paul

Yep, no problem with front or rear wheels, both spin freely and true when on stands

Hi There, must have cocked up my earlier reply! Yep, front wheel appears to be in straight, spins up true, as does the rear

You need to make sure your tone ring on the front wheel is on the left side of the bike (If you are sitting on it) and that the air gap from the sensor to the tone ring is correct. The infomration for the correct air gap is in the service manual. Same with the rear but I am unsure if that will throw the light.

Cheers, yes, the TC ring is on the correct side. I've checked the Service Manual and can't find any detail on the sensor gap. Any tips. I would have thought if the sensor gap was wrong it would flash a fault?

It may not be TC , the electronic steering turns on that light too, Are you sure there is no code, maybe an E3?

Agreed the orange light comes up for a number of reasons, not specifically the TC. Also heard it could be battery voltage (the bike starts off a jump battery, with a small Li-Po battery on the bike).
The dash doesn't flash any codes when I do the 2 second A+B button check

Have you tried a different battery? a new battery? Li-Po battery when is not balanced charged it will get damaged and under a load one of the Cells can drop and if the voltage drop below 12V could set that light which is because of the CAN bus.
Why are you using a Lipo battery, is this Lipo gell cell or gas? you know the most dangerous battery in the world is Lipo battery? any overcharging or physical damage to it can cause fire or explosion.
Most of these batteries (lipo) are made in china and quality of it are not all that.

Chiffee, it's cos the guy I bought it off was a talented racer, who wanted light weight, whereas I am a part time racer/track day muppet. It has a top quality battery on it, there is no chance of changing back without fitting a new fuel tank, the tank sits under the seat.
