My buddy with the 05 took it to the shop (one that I hate and will not use cause they suck) to have a PC3 installed.

Shop connected it to the wrong connector (of course)

Anyway it is now hooked up correctly but still showing the FI light and will not rev fully.

Shop says bike has thrown a "hard code" and thus needs to be reset some special way.

Does anyone know about this?

Please help!

I did the same thing when I first hooked up my pcIII. Disconnecting the battery for awhile cleared my codes and the bike ran fine.

Check the map in the pc also. If it still runs badly, remove the pc. It might have been damaged.

I was told by my dealer that if needed to just unhook the batt and it will reset the ecm as that is the way they do it. Thier is a procedure in the service manual that tells you how to reset it with the diagnostic wire but if the unplugging the batt does it that is just fine for me.

Dont be suprised if the PCIII is defective, mine was right out of the box, had to call them up and the dinga ling woman on thier tech line argued with me saying that there is no way a PCIII could be bad out of the box. I explained to her I have done everything except pray to the buddah and the bike would not run with it hooked up and it was making the elec secondaries flutter and wig out. Told me to send it back to them at my cost which I said was not right, but the dealer would not take it back and said even if he could that he did not have them in stock as PC was doing thier yearly inventory.

Two weeks later I get an email and call, seems the unit had an internal cross short fromt eh factory adn it was thier units fault not mine and they sent me another brande new unit. I said something about the shipping charges that I paid for a brand new unit and then shipped overnight to make it up to me, could of have sent me a custome tune to save me the $250 for mine and I would of hvae called it even.

The manual says that all codes should clear when the problem is cleared. If he still has a code then he probably still has a problem. It does sound like a bad PCIII. I also had to have mine replaced, out of the box.

I was at my dealer tonight and they said they have dealt with so many new, bad out of the box PCIII that they are not even recommending them anymore. I wonder what is up with PC quality control dept. Did they forget to hire them or pay them recently...
