ktm hard parts heated grips

just ordered from ktm and they just flash. Checked connections twice and cycled thru the switch and ignition switch many times with no luck.
There was a thread on here about just this problem but I no can find.
Ktm hard parts sent me an e-mail that said "lots of luck" Does any body have some good advice? Can I use a different switch? I hate to just piss away a hundred dollars! btw they went on 2005 950 adv.

Try a jumper straight to the battery to see if this is a defective grip controller, or an issues with routing the power thru your switch. Maybe the switch can't handle the current. If so, you may need to install a relay.

both grips ohm out the same so I think the controller is the problem. Just want to know what other people have done with this same problem. And has anybody else had a problem with ktm not standing behind a product. I know it is electrical butI just purchased it!
Can I put a 3 position switch on it? do I need a ballast?

Try holding the button in for about 3 seconds to get the green light on. Once you get that, push again and hold 1-2 seconds to move up to the next highest heat setting. Mine work fine once I figured this out.

FWIW

nah, hold for 3 sec and it goes off, hold for three more and it comes on flashing all the lights at once. Do this over and over till you sit in the corner and roll your shit into balls.

grip

I had a pair go bad and that is what happened. try unplugging one grip and see if the other works by itself. when they all blink at once that is the system telling you something is wrong. i ended up having a the throttle side go bad. there are no repair parts and no help to be had. i just had to buy a new set. have them send you a new set. i also recommend you go to a local shop and buy an old throttle sleeve that they have laying around in the shop and cut a spall piece from it to fill the void at the end of the grip. i think that if you bend the heat fibers it can break them and there is a section at the end of the grip that is not supported. hope this helps.

Actually the grips went on with no drama at all. Glue was used and they went on easily.
Hot Grips ! only use Hot Grips, they stand behind their product.

I had same prob my wires were crossed. It hard to tell from instruction but the wires are wrong. It took me two hours to figure out. Once I did they work great.

thanks ogre1 - just figured it out myself. I feel like ass-wipe but those instructions fail to tell you to cross the wires, although when you think about it, it only makes sense.
A little support from ktm- hardparts wooda been nice!

Mine did that from the moment I fitted them, took the control back to the shop and they confirmed it was busted straight out the box, swaped it out for a new one and its been ok ever since.
I would suggest that you send it back for a replacement, that controler box is "shagged" (thats english speak for, broken beyond anyones ability to fix)
