So what was the diagnosis? do tell, even if you made an arse of yourself. It might prevent others from doing the same thing.
Good idea, will do!
So this being my first Ducati and first bike with an immobilizer, I thought it must have something to do with that?
Thought it was the fuel pump.
Thought it was the spark plugs or coils etc.
I found and downloaded the 695 workshop manual, will put it online if any one needs it, it use's your browser and is all click able with many pictures....nice.
So anyway, basically had no spark and no fuel, not immobilizer as this will stop all electrical functions from working so bike will not turn over or do anything except flash the number 6 amber light at you. This is not the EOBD light (number 7).
When you turn your key, the dials sweep, immobilizer light (number 6) flashes, EOBD light (number 7) comes on, amongst all other lights but then all except neutral (green), oil (red) should go out.
If after 6-8 seconds EOBD light comes back on then EOBD light is telling you that something is not working.
If your bike turns over it is not the key, not the antenna, not the immobilizer but something else!!!
With mine after many hours I found that it was the Injection relay.
Item number 8 in attached image.
The front one is the lights relay.
The rear one is the Injection relay.
Changed this and she started straight up!!
Only took me about 20 hours........nice!
