Ducati Fault Codes

This Ducati manual provides the information required for normal servicing.

Error indication

The instrument panel manages error warnings in order to allow the rider to identify any abnormal vehicle behaviour in real time. Upon Key-On, if there are errors the instrument panel displays the indication of the present errors and turns on the EOBD light. During vehicle normal operation, any time an error warning is activated, the instrument panel automatically displays the error indication and turns on the EOBD light. When an error is triggered, the indication remains well visible for 5 seconds ('large' icon) then becomes smaller ('small' icon). If several errors are present, the corresponding icons will be displayed one after the other and every one will stay on for 3 seconds. When an errors triggered the EOBD light turns on as well.
