Rebuilding 959 need help Dash flashing like christmas tree, bike starts.

Hey guys,
Thank you again for helping with all my questions. I just bought a wrecked 959 panigale and decided to try to rebuild. I have been with out a Ducati for a while which makes me less then happy lol
It is a 2016 959 with supposedly 9k miles (dash was missing) damage is to the front and left side. I brought her back today and hooked up a dash I had. Got the bike to run but the dash is flashing like a christmas tree. The check engine, abs, N indicator, and revs are all flashing. Tried to use a different ecu and abs black box. None of it makes a difference. I did some research and it looks like the front and back abs sensor is worth replacing (ordered already) Any other ideas?

Also need some parts: Headlight, headlight bracket fairing stay, heatshield cover for exhaust that goes under the seat in the back, front fairing.

Thanks again in advance, here are some pics.

Mystery deepens, found some wires that were cut. Connected them together the only thing that happened was the emergency lights are on and wont stop.

Lol, not looking for positive as I signed up for a headache for sure, but helpful would be nice. I am assuming replacing the wiring harness wouldn't be a bad idea if its already cut up in at least one spot. But any direction of what to look for would be awesome.

This may not help, but when my Hayabusa dash started flashing crazily it turned out to be a bad battery. The battery checked between 12.6 and 13.1 volts but could not crank the bike and all was cured with a new one.

As complex as computer controlled motorcycles are, there are any number of things that could be causing the problems. Sensors, sensor wires, various wiring shorted to ground, many many other possibilities.

The battery is an easy place to start.

I am pretty sure my battery was ok, and bike started right up with it. But just in case I ordered a new one. Also ordered a wiring harness as that could definitely be an issue if I am not seeing other wires that were damaged maybe.
Any other suggestions?

You've got a good start with the direction you're headed. Probably best to begin there and see where that takes you.

Full disclosure; there is a consensus among some within this membership that insists I have no idea what I'm talking about most of the time. You need to know that.
