    Default Brake Failer Reset Frustration!!!

    Ok I know this has been talked to death but... I pulled in a parking space with a little incline so I had my foot on brake while pressing parking brake before shutting off..Low and behold when I came back started my 2012RT Limited back up I got the warning lit up on my screen...ugh..I tried at least 15 different times to reset ( on different days) (also topped off brake fluid) with no luck..I use it to commute to work practically every day a whole 3 miles..brakes work fine only 7000 miles total on it any suggestions? I have an appointment in 2 weeks at dealer to look at it but I'd rather just do it myself..I've also seen 2 different ways to reset..take key out after ,step on pedal immediattly, ect tried them all.....am I doing something wrong? Also fault code was C1282

    Here's what I'll do first, unplug the battery for 30 minutes, and plug it in.

    I had trouble resetting my Brake Failure error last year. I had to bleed the brakes and then do the low brake pressure switch reset to clear the error. Although the brakes felt good, it was clear to me by the increase in effort to get the low brake pressure switch (2nd switch) to click after bleeding I had air in my system.

    If you were parked on an incline my guess is you’re low on brake fluid. That code is low pressure.

    Bleeding brakes sounds like the way to go..The first thing I did was put fluid in...Now if I can only reconnect the battery without the starter motor kicking on..For the life of me I don't know how this happened...…..

    Brake Warning Reset Procedure
    If you do not have any codes, but still have a brake warning, it is possible the low pressure switch has been activated. There are three switches in the brake circuit. 1. Brake light switch, 2. Hydraulic pressure switch, and 3. Low pressure switch (this is really a limit switch that just senses the pedal has traveled too far). This can be reset by the following procedure. After a low pressure switch (LPS) problem has been solved, it is necessary to clear the occurred fault in the VCM as follows: 1. Turn ignition switch OFF. 2. Wait 30 seconds. 3. Turn ignition switch ON. 4. Press the brake pedal, you should hear two clicks. NOTE: The 1st click will come from the brake light switch. Continue to strongly press the brake pedal to hear a 2nd click. This one will come from the low pressure switch. You may not hear the click, just push the pedal real hard. 5. Turn ignition switch OFF. 6. Wait 30 seconds. 7. Turn ignition switch ON. 8. Validate fault was cleared.
    What caused the condition in the first place? This has happened to me a couple of times. When the parking brake is ON and your foot is on the brake pedal, then you release the parking brake, you will feel the brake pedal go down an additional amount. If it goes down far enough to activate the 3rd switch, that is when you get the brake failure message. Now I'm just careful of the pressure I put on the brake pedal when I release the parking brake. No more problems.

    If you notice the orca closes the switch when the engine is running the starter engages immediately when the engine stops.

    Does the initial screen appear? The one you need to press the mode key to clear.

    First, remove the key completely, then leave the battery disconnected for one hour. This will assure the computer resets. Then without the key in the ignition, connect the negative lead of the battery. I am assuming you have not removed the positive lead. If that is successful, turn the key on and start the bike.

    This is what Im saying..I have the key out..when I go to reconnect neg wire it sparks a little and starter kicks over ..I never removed pos terminal side..So should I quickly reattach neg wire and insert key while starter is spinning start bike and then turn off?

    Keep the battery completely disconnected for one hour. I want to make sure the computer is reset. Something is energizing the starter and I want to make sure it's not software. If that doesn't work, do as you just suggested.

    Nope!!! Thanx Grandpot for your help but it wont stop..It violently sparks (almost welding itself to post)when I go to reattach the black wires and the starter spins..I didn't even try to start bike as I didn't want to fry the starter..Should of never listened to the poster that said for me to do this now my only recourse is to get a tow to shop.Hundreds of dollars for what was supposed to be a simple at home fix!!! Jeez....

    Sorry to hear that. Unless you know someone with a BUDS system nearby, the dealer is your logical recourse. Good luck.

    Does the starter try to engage even if the engine kill switch is off?

    I know you’re frustrated but blaming someone else for your situation is wrong. If you didn’t know how to disconnect and reconnect the battery you probably shouldn’t have attempted it.
