Hi Guys
Anyone here ever encounter DSS error on Multistrada 2013? Got my Multistrada GT last month and yesterday I got this DSS error on the screen.
Will be taking to service center next Tuesday so will be informative if I know if the bike safe to ride or riding it with error will make it worst.

Regards

If you post this over in the multistrada section you will likely get a lot of responses but not much from this section.

Thanks Valleyrider,

Issue fixed.

Yes I had the same problem today. I took the bike to my shop. They could not figure it out. However I saw a post on a Italian site that said that there was a cut under the sheathing of the sensor ling on the swing arm. I am still waiting for my shop to get back to me.

Had the same error. Twice.

First one appeared about 6 weeks back. Was putting bike on side stand. Suddenly DSS error apppeared. Able to get round problem by starting bikewhen upright and sitting on it. All seemed ok otherwise. Dealer couldn't understand the problem, but changed the rear swingarm sensor and all seemed ok. That was 2 weeks ago.

Then the dreaded error came up again today. Just switched to Enduro mode over a bumpy carpark. Appeared out of the blue. Could still get rid of it by earlier trick. But the moment there was any fork dive, ie off loading of the swingarm, error will appear again.

Was looking on the net a bit more, and a French site posted a possible reason.

The wire connection to the sensor is loose. Not the exterior insulation, but the actual copper.

The reason is that the cable is tied too tightly on the swing arm and there is no slack to allow for large swingarm movments.

Which makes sense in my case as it happened when the swingarm was jacked high up in Enduro mode.

Will require a replacement. No good as I have a Tour in the Brecon Mountains (Wales) lined up this weekend. But if I could do some field repairs, might be able to salvage.

The last time they changed the sensor and it was OK for 2 months then it came back. Called the center and they told me that they are waiting for software from Ducati which then will be able to capture the actual problem. Brought in my bike last Monday and Tuesday it happen again and this time I got really frustrated as they told me they may need to strip my bike down and check the wiring.
Basically Ducati has no idea why this is happening and I didnt want my service center to use my bike as RnD for them to try and error to fix the issue.

I believe there was a recall for a sensor. The cable was rerouted or replaced with a longer one. It has been a long time..

It is funny when you find your own old posts looking for help with a new problem.

I suspect the DSS error shows up when your battery is really weak. Maybe too weak to crank up your preload.

Or this could be the wine fueled ramblings of a madman.

Hearing about this DSS error I thought nah it not my bike... then it finally happened. So sad...

BUT hey this my chance to get my bike apart and thinker with it. I started out reading the error and I got: "502B status 68" from my reader. That doesn't help. I read a lot from forums the the rear wheel accelerometer wire breaks often and Ducati replaces then under warranty. I inspected the wire and it seems fine UNTIL one time while the error was not present and the ig is on I touched the wire and DSS error appeared.

... my bike is out of warranty so time for some diy fix... I removed the sensor and plugged it back and turn on the bike. I slowly moved the wire until DSS error and mark the general area on the wire.

Sliced the outer shield revealed the broken wire. Fixed it, installed and NO MORE ERRORS. YAHOO!!!

Nicely done!

I am chasing a 502A Error.

I have individually unplugged each sensor and logged error codes:
Body Accelerometer 502E & 502F
Front Wheel Accelerometer 5028 & 5029
Rear Wheel Accelerometer 502B & 502C

Finally sent it to my local dealer and it came back to as a front wheel accelerometer... Im still not convinced as an error of 5028 or 5029 comes out if I pull out thaf sensor. STILL I went ahead and said yes to order the sensor. Will take about 3weeks they said. $350nzd plus labor. Expensive but good thing is if they replace it and it is not that one I will not be paying for it
