Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: ESD (Electronic Steering Damper) ECU Communication Error (Service Code 3C, ZX1000JD/KD)

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / Self-Diagnosis System / ESD (Electronic Steering Damper) ECU Communication Error (Service Code 3C, ZX1000JD/KD)

ESD ECU Communication Line Inspection

When the data (for status of ESD system) is not sent from the ESD ECU to the meter unit and ECU, the service code 3C is displayed.

The data is sent through the CAN communication line.

The service code 3C is detected with the meter unit.

The FI symbol does not appear in this error code.

When the service code 3C is detected, the yellow warning indicator light (LED) [A] goes on, and the ESD warning symbol [B] and code of 3C [C] displayed on the LCD.
