    kill switch is doing what it supposed to with alarm so ruled that out.
    finally got drivers sorted for tune ecu so had a go with that and i,ve got a fault code P1690 malfunction of can-bus communication, so will do pin tests tomorrow.
    pi**ed off tho was supposed to be leaving this am for 10 days trip round scotland including 2 rallies!
    fe**in bikes who would have them !!

    Kill switch was what i was thinking also but maybe double check you if you have any other earth wires that go on the negative battery post, also its not in gear with the side stand down... hope you get it sorted

    Disconnect the battery for a period - say 1 hour then reconnect and see what happens

    the sweeping of the gauges has nothing to do with the ecu.
    sounds to me like you need to pull the alarm connector and put back the original connector plug. so as to eliminate the alarm as the problem.

    Check the 30 amp fuse connectors in the fuse box. I had the same problem on my Roadster and found out the connectors was pushing out the bottom of the fuse box and not making contact with the fuse. I by passed the fuse box altogether and installed a in line fuse holder for the 30 amp fuse. Hadn't had a problem with it since. This might not be your problem but its worth a look. The Triumph fuse box is not really well built.

    Plus 1 on the fuse box. I had to add solder to the legs on the 30 amp fuses to make them a little wider as they weren't solid contacts.
