Yesterday, having just added fuel stabilizer to winterize my M1200R I started the engine to let the stuff go through the whole system.
Took a few attempts to keep it running as the Monster 1200's are cold blooded beasts. On one of those attempts, I got a error message and the engine light came on...Rats.
Oh, well, I'll have it reset in the spring.
BTW, -2c is way below the Ice Light warning which comes on around 4c.

Today, I decided to fool around with the DDA / ELM / USB cables I had purchased from www.lonelec.co.uk for the Panigale which I have never used.
Using the software that came with them I was able to reset the light....:grin
Who-da-known!

Cool. What software did you use with the cable? Looks like a pretty cheap way to reset the light yourself.

The small disc that comes with the cables include a few software programs. ScanTool 1.13 is the one I used.

Ah k. Gotcha.
After that, I toyed with JPDiag software which I got to connect. Once I receive a license from them, that package should do even more.
Resetting the Change OIL service light for one.

Ohh wait. For some reason I thought you were originally referring to the oil light. Duh. How much is that license?

It's free. You just have to register your ECU by using the software. They will email a license thereafter to unlock all the features

Nice! Let me know what other features you are able to access once you get the license. Thanks.

Just got the license. You can apparently reset quite a few things such as Diagnostic Troubleshooting Codes and various service interval reminders.

I guess you aren't willing to reset your oil change counter for us to see if it works, eh Den? :grin

If this works the way it appears that it will, this is a HUGE deal! [clap]

I spent $250 for an oil change, counter clear and a firmware check last time, BTW...:frown

Absolutely B, I've been changing the oil in my Seadoos for years but there's no lights to reset.
Now that I can reset the lights on the Ducati's, I'll be changing the oil and filters myself.
Big savings here to be gained.

subscribing. I have a 2014 monster 1200s and a MTS 950 current.

If you can reset the warning lights then Ill consider purchasing the necessary equipment too.

May I ask where you found jpdiag? I was looking for it myself but found a bunch of dead links online and a lot of people saying to use guzzidiag.
jpdiag seemed to have a much nicer format and no need to figure out which guzzi clone chipset you have in your ducati.

I too have the cables and drivers waiting. Looking forward to very carefully having a look in there :D

JPdiag has a few programs for different ECU's.
As per my previous post, the one you want is the MelcoDiag and can be downloaded here.
Just scroll down.

Many thanks.
When I looked a couple of months ago, all the links were dead and I feared they'd been somehow shut down.

I get an intermittent check engine light on my S2R that I'm pretty certain is a poorly erased O2 sensor, so I wanted to get in there to check.

@breaddrink
I wrongly assumed you had 1200 since we're on the 1200 section.
BTW, the SR is a great looking Monster. One of my favorites.
Do check your ECU model for the appropriate software just to make sure.
