    Default Check transmission periocically popping up on display.

    My check transmission light has been periodically popping up on the screen of my 2012 RS-S Spyder 2,800 miles (As if that matters).

    It doesn't stay on, or drive any different. One time only it wouldn't shift when I was pushing the paddle shift button; thats only been one time, and I hadn't even made it out of the driveway when that happened. Of coarse it started working and the light went off.

    Will there be a code stored in the computer, even if the check transmission doesn't stay on???

    Default Little checking.....

    If you don't have the spydercodes app you could get it and it will help you pull up the codes when they happen. If it goes away or you turn the key off the codes will be stored and can only be seen with BUDS. Most common is a faulty paddle shifter or a gear positioning sensor although I have found some light shifting can cause that as well. Make positive shifts or the sensors think you missed a gear...With that low a mileage you may have to give hera good run to get things loosened up....

    Funny you say "give her a good run", because when it comes on the dash "check transmission" I get on the throttle pretty hard and it goes away, coincidence???
    I was thinking the paddle shifter, and the gear position sensor as well. I do ride it often, just not long trips usually about 20 - 40 miles at a time (darn fingers go numb a lot).

    Thanks

    If I remember correctly I had to replace the gear indicator on the left side of the engine case...I think it had 2 bolts...BRP has had several problems with the gear indicators...Simple job...

    It happened to mine - the day I bought it so went back and got some money off - but to cure it I bought new shift switch assembly as problem is with the small micro switch... Now all fine
