Have you tried swapping the 20 with a 30 and see if it does the same thing? I presume you have some spare fuses?
Crap, my sympathies on this happening. I don't know if this is possible or easy on a Norge or what tools you have, but: If a visual check for burnt or melted connectors and components (or bare wire touching frame.) doesn't point to a suspect, I would disconnect all systems associated with that fuse, then turn on the ignition and connect one at a time until a new fuse blows. You might need a few spare fuses to narrow it down. My guess of what's most likely: fuel pump. Pump motor failure or blockage causing abnormally high current draw. If it's the pump, it might run for a while with a new fuse. Or not. Long shot: Maybe vent on gas cap not working, causing a vacuum to form in gas tank? Remove it while listening for the whoosh of air.
Best of luck to you. It stinks breaking down!
I would do that, but even if it doesnít blow the 30, it still doesnít point to the issue.
I'm working up to a more complicated solution...was starting with a simple first step to see if that would at least allow you to start the bike, and then possibly ride it to a shop.
Just sent you a PM. I know just the man who would be delighted to help if he's not on the golf course You will be in the best hands this side of Bungadore
Try unplugging the fuel pump elec. connector , if fuse holds when key goes on you've found the short. Sound like a possible fuel pump problem. Maybe just a shorted wire and not a bad pump.
Did you buy any chance bring your laptop and Lonelec cables with you to plug in Guzzidiag?
Trouble with the fuel pump theory, is that the fuse doesnít blow until you touch the starter..(I think)The pump is swirling from when you turn the key onÖ(supposedly).But Iíll check that when I get up. I have to get a collection of 20 A ones first.
For what itís worrh, my 2006 red Norge exhibited the same symptoms but intermittently. Turned out to be an uninsulated spade terminal feeding one of the four headlight bulbs. The terminal floated around, occasionally touching the earthed headlight shell thus blowing the main fuse.The Norge headlight only comes on as the engine starts. That may explain why the fuse blows as you touch the starter. If your Norge has the same fault as mine, it will blow the fuse on high beam but not low beam. Or vice versa.
^^^^ this, check for a melted ground on the taililte socket as well
If that's correct, will it bump start ie leave the starter alone
Looking at the fault codes and wire diagram it would appear that the injectors are the last connection on the power wire.All of the fault codes show you are on the right track.A quick google search shows the x as no or incorrect signal.A broken wire either from pin 37 or 28 of the black ecu connector that is now shorted to ground would most likely show up this fault. Now I am going to take a stab here, as far as I can tell the ECU is located under the front of the tank. Have you got a tank bag on the bike?Have you moved anything near the front of the tank since you pulled into the camp ground?If you have it may have interfered with the ecu plug/wires. Faults often don't happen without a cause.Steve
