    From everything I know about DESS ( and this is more than most ) ..... I have not heard of extra electrical stuff being an issue..... The DESS module interacts with the chip in the ignition switch ..... Some here have had to get an ignition switch in conjunction with the module ..... I didn't but it isn't clear in the minds at BRP EXACTLY what causes the DESS failure...... there have been 4 different modules since 2014 ...... IMHO some engineer decided to fix a non-existant problem ..... the 2009 to 2013 didn't have a problem .... then the module was changed and BRP has problems up the WaZoo ....go figure ... Mike

    It is Covered under the "Extended Warranty"( B.E.S.T). Ask your dealership.

    We prefer the nuclear option. Just turn DESS OFF and be done with it. Useless system that only serves to keep the owner from riding. Does not deter theft by any knowledgeable vehicle theft team. Its easily bypassed without the key present.

    Requires MegaTech version of BUDS. Several shops around the country offer it, including ours. Most dealers do not opt for the upgraded version that has access to the security system.

    In BUDS, its a simple toggle of a setting.

    Well I have an appointment to take my Spyder into the Dealer 2-9-18. So will see how everything goes. I have to get it fixed because I don't want to get stranded out some where. Will let you know how it turns out.

    Well I picked up my Spyder this morning from the Dealer 2-13-18. Here is the Dealer comments as written on the work order. No codes stored in (BUDS). But we and BRP have seen this before, BRPS recommendation is to change out the DESS MODULE. If it comes back , then replace the DESS ANTENNA. So the DESS MODULE was replaced and both my keys were reprogrammed. This was accomplished under extended warranty and with no charges to me. I'm a happy camper and hope that this takes care of my DESS issue.

    The 2nd time( On Aug. 28, 2015) my dealership replaced the DESS MODULE, & Ignition Switch, Reprogramed Keys, Changed the trunk lock/and gave me a new trail lock. The above work was done @ 8,740 miles, and since then I have not had the DESS Key code show up on the screen. My current mileage is 22,000. Also I have a 2014RTS-SE6.

    The first time ( on July 14,2015) my dealership replaced the DESS MODULE.

    I hope you don't get the DESS issue Good Luck!

    I am guessing go with the cheaper repair first then the harder more expensive repair next if the module doesn't work out.

    That DESS "antenna" they are speaking of is part of the ignition switch on a 2014. So the ignition switch is what they will replace.

    A1A, I hope I don't get another DESS issue either. If I do I'll post on this Thread ( which I started in July of 2015), If I do I know it is covered under the B.E.S.T Warranty.

    Good Luck!
