Another episode of my Dr Vstrom, medical video series about the Dealer mode.

To perform this task you only need the list of FI error codes that I am providing within the video and a small cable or even paperclip to bridge two connectors on the Dealer mode plug.

This tutorial demonstrates on a 3rd Gen DL 650 Vstrom L7 model but the steps are applicable to the entire Vstrom family including the latest 2018 models.

Vstroms have 2 modes of operation, a "User", normal running mode where if a malfunction occurs an FI error indication is displayed either in the odometer readout area or the clock depending on the model.

If the FI is alternated every 2 seconds & the Red FI lamp on the dash is on solid, the bike will start and run in fail-safe mode because the failure or malfunction is not so serious.

If however, the Red FI light lamp is blinking, the bike will not start and probably the malfunction is more serious. In such a case do not turn the engine OFF. Instead, bridge the dealer plug, get the error code and drive your bike somewhere where you can fix the problem. Error code should be checked before the bike is turned off.

In such a case of an error, carry a spare key & a jumper so the seat can be removed and Dealer Mode entered while bike is still running to help with the diagnosis

Dealer Mode: FI errors are stored in the ECU when & error is present until power is removed from (battery disconnected or ECU unplugged) the ECU and the error has not been cleared.
