Cold Start / Ice control

Hi All.


Today I wanted to start the engine of my 1199 after longest keeping in cold environment. Average temp was always -1..0 *C but I had the maintenance for battery and the current was good (13V).

When I turned on the key the dashboard informed me about cold temperature (ICE Logo). So I ignored the message but when I tried to start engine it was impossible, looks like ECU blocks it.

Is that correct? Can I disable it?

The warning light is only a warning that the outside temperature should indicate ice. That should not stop the engine from turning over. What does it do when you press the start button ? Screen die ? Starter try to turn over ?

Maybe check battery connections ?

When I press the button, the starter tries to turn over the engine and at the same time the display indicates two red lights in the top of dashboard and main display goes out briefly. That all happens.

I can check the connections but I am sure it's ok because current is good and I have covered these by special spray before.

P.S. I can try to record short video if it helps.

Tighten the connections and check them. The dash should not go out.

Good luck

One more thing. I also tried to start the engine when Ducati Battery Maintainer was connected and result was the same. I think it excludes the issue with battery connections because it connected through connector which under seat located.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Agreed with Captain Greg.

Wanted to start with terminal connections, its the most simple solution, then the next would be a completely dead battery. They are a consumable item. People put a lot of faith in them, but most suck.

@bearacer Now might be your opportunity to put in a lithium battery

@Captain Greg. Ha-ha-ha but now is winter. I will not ride, just want to check the everything is OK or not.

@NOLA. I have replaced the stock battery this summer. Now I use LITHIUM BATTERY X2 ALIANT.

I will follow your recommendations but I want to repeat once again even with direct connection to charger I can not turn over the engine.

Check the battery manual. It must work well under temp. range about -30..-18 *C. I may not believe but here is only 0 degree.
