Wait-not ready. What does that message mean and what do I do about it? No propulsion ability
How about some more information. When did the alert come on? First ride of the day, after a long ride, etc? No propulsion if you don't get it running means a call to the service department. Let us know what caused it as we are all learning about this bike! Good luck!Wait-not ready. What does that message mean and what do I do about it? No propulsion ability
No nothing on the start switch sounds like the 12V battery. Keep us informed and good luck.Well, things went from weird to worse. The Wait-Not Ready message showed up, center screen, like a propulsion interlock message. I waited, nothing. I tried to charge level1 at home, and the bike wouldn’t start charging. No flashing blue light on plug. This morning I have nothing. No headlight, no electrical anything, like a circuit breaker tripped. Dealer is picking bike up tomorrow, so we shall see what’s up after the tech looks it over. Lone Wolf H-D in Spokane, WA. Is my dealer of choice. I will report back when I know more.
Do not listen to your tech! They are learning right along with the owners. The RESS will charge your 12V battery or should be charging it. If your 12V battery is draining in-between rides means the RESS is not working correctly. All the 12V battery does is turn on the computers and lights and have the bike ready for us to hit the "RUN" switch. Once the bike is in "RUN" the RESS takes over full control.The one thing that will drain the 12V battery is if we forget to flip the "OFF-Start"switch to "OFF". Lots of info on this video about the battery starting at the 12 minute mark.Watch all the way to the end of the video. You may want to pass this video on to your service department.Also, my tech recommended keeping 12 volt battery in a tender between rides.
The 12v battery is the weak link of the Livewire. Inform your service dept. of the video above. The RESS is supposed to keep the 12v battery charged. If your 12v battery is dying the RESS is not working correctly. Several members on this forum have had to replace the 12v battery several times. Make sure your LW has had the software update.Very interested in any update on this thread - my LiveWire has struggled to keep the 12V charged and this even after dealer replaced Li battery with new (10 days and dead again). Is it a software issue? Same idea from dealer - keep 12V on tender at same time that RESS is charging but that can’t be right, and what if 12V runs down while away from special Li tender? Interlocks mean the bike has to be picked up by van for transport to Li tender to get back on road. Glad to see my bike not only one with this issue
Thanks Mac Mike - have shared with dealer. Love the bike, hope this worksThe 12v battery is the weak link of the Livewire. Inform your service dept. of the video above.
