2010 GL1800 Model VIIA - Computer Reboot

When I have my ignition switch in the ACCessory position in order to enter destinations into the GPS and then change the switch to the ON position to start the engine the computer reboots. This causes me to have to wait until rebooting is completed so I can start the GPS, etc. Is there some way to change parameters or something so the computer will not reboot but just continue running?

Does it happen just by turning the switch to on or when you actually start it?

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

How is your battery? If the voltage drops too low when cranking it could cause the reboot.

Battery seems to be fine:
12.4V Cold - Sitting for 2 weeks
9.6V Cranking - Or real close to that, it's a bit hard to get it exactly because the engine fires up immediately

Could it be that the GPS on the same circuit as the lights which all switch OFF when cranking the engine? I don't have a schematic.

There you go, 9.6 v cranking is too low. No, power to the GPS does not shut off when cranking.

It should never drop below 10 volts, some say 10.5 I believe.

Yep 10.5 and above. Anything below that and the bike may crank fine and not start. ECM and other electronics need at least 10.5 volts.

this is what I have determined from a lot of trials with 1500s and my 1800, below 10.5 it will not start.....
the starter rolls over, but to no avail..... you aren't going anywhere.


install new AGM battery, and no more problems ever.
