The Immobilizer System; Keys - Ducati Multistrada 1200 ABS Owner's Manual

Hide thumbs


The immobilizer system

For additional antitheft protection, the motorcycle is
equipped with an IMMOBILIZER, an electronic system that
locks the engine automatically whenever the ignition switch
is turned off.
The grip of each ignition key contains an electronic device
that modulates the output signal from a special antenna in
the top fairing when the ignition is switched On. The
modulated signal acts as a password (which is different at
each start-up) and tells the ECU that an "authorised" ignition
key is being used to start up the engine. When the ECU
recognises the signal, it enables engine start-up.


(fig. 59)
The Owner receives a set of keys comprising:
- 1 active key (1, fig. 59)
- 1 passive key (2, fig. 59)
It contains the code used by the "Hands free" system for the
Key-On, in different modes.
The active key (1, fig. 60) is the one that is normally used and
has a button (A, fig. 60) that when pressed makes the metal
part exit (B, fig. 60). The metal part returns inside the grip by
pushing it in.
