That's the code that comes up when the plug is dirty, loose or has a damaged pin or wire. Unplug it and inspect it before you pay a dealer good money for something that may be a simple fix.

Yes, it's the TBW actuator code, but that's the expected code for the diagnosis and repair I gave you........

If they get the same results as you and decide to replace the sensor under warranty and it fixes it.....bonus!

Yep thats what I said especially since the extended warranty is already expired. But they said they were gonna do it under it anyways.

Well, despite popular belief, there are dealerships out there willing to go the extra mile for customers. Sounds like you have good one.

They have always tried to do right. I cant complain. They will always have my service. Now I just gotta look at getting another extended service plan so I dont end up...up a creek. Like I could have this time. Just gotta get the money together cause theyre not cheap.

Water is the enemy to electrical componets !!!

Too minimize I give my Ultra a sponge bath & use a leaf blower to dry excess water . Then I take a clean pale of water & rag & wipe away the streaks away with good results .
I always keep my Harley in a enclosed garage or cargo trailer when I need the warm space to work on a project . Just my thoughts Bud

Well they got it all fixed up and got it home. They said it wasnt the male end of the pins but the female ends. They said back around 2009 that Harley used an inferior type of metal on both ends of the pins and the male ends had already been replaced but the female ends havent been. But they did the work on the house so I dont have anything to complain about. Awesome dealership.
