Re: Total power loss

I am really out of touch with modern vehicle electrics myself.  But I did have a modern Yamaha scooter with everything cpu controlled.  After it was stolen and wires cut etc with them trying to start it, it was totally dead until someone "reset" the controler.

Sorry I have no idea how they did it.

It also switched off all electrics and required resetting if the bike were ever tipped on it's side.

Re: Total power loss

IMHO ..... Sounds like O A T is not far of the mark.....Seems possibly that there is more than one fuse box or maybe an inline fuse to stop the ECU from getting spiked from just such an occasion that you describe..............

Sorry ...  I too am not so au fait with modernish tech.......... I'm something of a luddite with this sort off thing
