    Engine won't start

    I tried to start up my 1999 XL1200 LTD after winter storage and no luck. Starter cranks but no sparks from any of the plugs - it ran great when I put it away last fall. I've followed the troubleshooting in the service manual for the start system. The start and stop switches work fine. 12 volts is flowing from the battery to the multifunction meter, out again, through the start switch, back out via the brown wire, and apparently on to the starter relay since the starter cranks. There's no continuity through the stop switch when the clip is in and button isn't pushed.

    Doesn't seem likely that all three plugs or all three ignition coils failed while sitting idle. I already tried changing the CDI with no luck.

    Anyone have any ideas, or is it just time to give in and take it in?

    Try resetting the code via the blue wire in the wire loom in the front left side. Unplug it then try the code again AAAA
