When the ignition key is turned from ON to OFF, the
immobilizer system activates the engine lock. When the
ignition key is turned from OFF to ON to start the engine:
1) if the code is recognised, the protection system releases
the engine lock. Press the START button (2, fig. 40), to start
2) if the "Vehicle/Engine Diagnosis - EOBD" light (8, fig. 4)
comes on and the page with the "Error" message is
displayed when you press switch (11, fig. 5) in position B
"▼" it means that the code was not recognised. In this case,
turn the ignition key back to OFF and then to ON again. If the
engine still does not start, try again with the other black key.
If the engine still does not start, contact the DUCATI Service
Sharp knocks can damage the electronic components
inside the key.
Always use the same key throughout the procedure. Using
different keys could prevent the system from recognising
the code in the key.
If you need additional keys, contact your DUCATI Service
Centre with all the keys you have in your possession and
your CODE CARD.
The Ducati Service Centre will program all the new keys as
well as any keys you already have.
You may be asked to provide proof that you are the
legitimate owner of the motorcycle.
The codes for any keys not present during the memory
programming procedure are cancelled, to ensure that any
keys that may have been lost can no longer be used to start
If you sell your motorcycle, it is essential to transfer all
keys and the CODE CARD to the new owner.
