Parking button not responding?

Suddenly TC Max went into parking mode when I was doing a slow turn. Pressing the button to go back to READY state did nothing.

I pulled over, switched power off inside battery compartment, pulled out the plug, turned everything back on, still the same. Everything works, except I can't turn off parking mode. Is there something I could have done by accident that blocked me from going to READY mode?

No error message, side stand is pulled all the way up, breaks are loose. No idea what is going on. I'm waiting for assistance to come over, and wonder if anyone had similar malfunction.

I did read something online that the sensor in side the stand brakes at the TC or TCMax so maybe that's the problem...

Yes, it was indeed the sensor for the stand. Unfortunately there was no way to make it ignore the broken sensor. It sucks that a malfunction which doesn't pose any danger on the road can completely disable the vehicle. Seems like a bad design. Had to tow it for service. Got the part replaced and now I am trying not to worry it will happen again...

Great to hear it is fixed, but not good it wasn't possible to bypass the sensor.. but on the other hand the sensor gives a safety when the stand is out.

Good to see there is a workaround, but even if I manage to bridge the cable without soldering, while being parked on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, I would still be risking losing warranty by touching anything inside the cover, so it doesn't sound like a good idea in my case.

It is:

1. To check the location of the problem and possibly work around for a time service can mount new sensor. I did it in my office to enable possibility to get back home.

2. Bridge does not need to brake anything. So you may unbridge it and have no problem with warranty.

But it is just an option. Noone forces you to do it. But it may help somene else. This is why I published it.

Are you sure it's not the red button itself? On my TS it is a little moody, sometimes you have to flip/wiggle it a little sideways for it to make contact/switch between Parking/Ready mode.

I do not have TS. But in my link I showed how you can bridge sensor on TCmax to check if it helps without service.

Maybe you have another problem.

You have exactly the same button on the TC also!

Yes. I know. This is why I mentioned my solution. But as engine and controller are different, you may face another problem. Anyway - making test bridge costs around 5-10 minutes with time used to unscrew covers. You may try or not. ;-] I cannot help more.

I would say that TS and TC is identical in wire diagram and main setup with different specification on motor and battery , will claim that TS and TC controllers also are identical, just different parameters.

So I just want to point out that if someone have problem with swiching between Parking/Ready mode, both your guide to bride the sidestand, and then check the function of the red button on the throttle is the second tip (this buttons function can also be tested by removing the connector and try bridging), and both tips applies to both models.
