The service code of the ABS adds "B" at the left side of
The service code of the ESD and IMU adds "E" at the
left side of the code.
For DFI system, immobilizer system (equipped models)
and ESD system, when there are two or more problems,
all the service codes can be stored and the display will
begin starting from the lowest number service code in the
For ABS, the service codes display at random.
Then after completing all codes, the display is repeated
until the ignition switch is turned off or push and hold the

Service Code Erasing
The service codes stored in memory of the ECU can be erased using Kawasaki Diagnostic System
When erasing the stored service code memory, the accelerator position and throttle position initial
data of the throttle body are erased. Therefore, you must register the initial data to the ECU. Wait
the 10 seconds at the idle speed and the coolant temperature 40°C (104°F) or more to register
the initial data of the sensor position to the ECU.
If the Kawasaki Diagnostic System (KDS Ver.3) is not available, do the following procedures.
1. Turn on the ignition switch and start the engine.
2. Keep the idling speed more than 30 seconds.
3. Run the vehicle more than 5 minutes at a speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) or more.
Be sure to keep the engine running during procedures 2 and 3 for more than 10 minutes in total.
4. Turn the ignition switch off.
5. Repeat the above procedures 3 times.
6. Start the engine and check that the yellow engine warning indicator light (LED) goes off.
