This morning my dash turned off whilst riding, I had no lights, no indicators and no dash display.

Turned the key off and on whilst riding and still the dash stayed off but the engine cut out and then re started once key was turned back on. Only have brake light.

Got to work, turned bike off and the electric start isn't working. I've disconnected battery, disconnected ECU and then reconnected 30 mins later but no change.
Wiring for dash goes under fuel tank and don't have the time to take the tank off and check wiring etc... Checked fuses and all good, removed them and cleaned connections but no difference.

Bike does bump start and runs fine though... Just with no lights and no dash display.

Phones my local Ducati dealer where I bought the bike and all they said was "phone this number... And get the free Ducati breakdown service to recover the bike to us"....... Helpful -_-

Anyone else had this or similar issue??

Getting fed up with the amount this bike is spending in the garage with 9000 miles on the clock!

Sounds like complete loss of power to the gauges. According to the wiring diagram there is no fewer than 35 wires entering the instrument cluster. Is there a connector plug on the underside of the gauge cluster? If so try unplugging and re-seat. Check for moister ingress and corrosion. Green corrosion will be evident on the +12V pin/socket.

Hi DouglasLee,

There is no plug under the instrument cluster unfortunatley, just some wires running underneath the tank which go to a wiring plug but I can't access it unless I remove the tank which I don't have the time do to Unfortunatley.

Phoning the Ducati recovery service (or whatever they are called) tomorrow and getting them to recover it back to the main dealer for me.

I know I can do checks myself (I am a mechanic too lol) but this shouldn't happen to a brand new bike either way so I'll let them sort it :)

There is a connector on the back of the instrument cluster but you have to take the back cover off to get to it. Definitely a good place to start.

If you have also lost electric start - sounds more to me like a supply fuse - I know you said you checked them - but I seem to remember reading somewhere that there is some hidden ones under a cover / relay.

my advise would be to check again ALL fuses.

Yep, two 30 amp fuses under the cover of the starter relay, just forward of the fuse box, one is for the starter, the other is the main charging fuse.

Thanks ONduro but I have sorted the issue :)

So I checked under the little cover, there was a blown 10amp fuse :D
Thank you! I never realised there was fuses under there.

The question is... Why would the fuse blow? It's a 2015 bike with just under 9000 miles on the clock!

Thanks for the report back. Yep always check the simple stuff first. Thinking it will be a good idea to locate all the fuses in the comfort of my driveway before setting out again. Hate to get stranded in the boonies on account of a 50 cent fuse. Guessing there are some spares in there someplace as well?

Sometimes motorcycle voltage regulators are not the best. Better a blown fuse rather than blow up the gauge package. And a handsome speedo it is, especially after dark.

Interesting, if the blown fuse was under the little cover on the starter reley (there are two) the one on the outboard side is for the starter and should be 30 Amp, and the one on the inboard side is the Main/Charging fuse and should also be 30 Amp.
If that Main fuse has been replaced by a 10 Amp fuse it would be under rated and may be the reason that it blew ?

The fuses are under a little rubber cover just behind where the two 30amp fuses sit (one is a spare) and inside there's about 5 or so fuses. There are spares but not a 10amp spare!!

Anyways, I'm happy again :D

Time to fit my new givi panniers ;)

Good, Tony! As DouglasLee suggested, I think I need to take the time to become familiar with the fuse locations. Looking forward to pictures of the Givi's, too.

I had a similar issue which took nearly two months to resolve and ended up with a new wiring loom

I got mine recovered back to the dealership... Broken wire! Ducati said to replace the loom and not repair the wire because it's still under warranty. 2 weeks without my only form of transport but at least it's getting sorted under warranty.
