They only work at certain times for safety reasons. I don't know if this is what you are running into. I don't remeber all the details, they are in the owners manual. Like for instance, once you apply the brakes, certain functions won't operate. Once you put the bike in gear, certain functions won't operate. After the bike has been running for a certain time, again certain functions won't operate. Also the battery voltage must be high enough as it not allowed to run the battery down to low.
Check your owners manual, if you can't the information, I will pull my book out once I get home in about 4 hours and see if I can jott them down for you.
having owned 3 ltd it is quite normal to see eee etc and for the system to not be working! I have spent hours with only limited success. If I remember rightly on start up you would see --- until you used the self leveling switch on the left hand handle bar. this should then read the psi and start compressor to level the bike if air is required to level or let out air if needed. My problem was that when pressing the self leveling would be that --- would change to eee and do nothing. some sucess was had from removing the unit that shows the reading and making sure there was a good connection. sometimes going through the start up would click the unit to do as god or mr Honda intended. There are so many sensors etc and so few experts i gave up! But the 1200 ltd is still one of my favourites. Good luck Derek
Welcome to a wealth of information and comraderie, the best forum ever. I have an LTD and this drove me nuts for months. I would get the EEE, turn the ignition off restart and sometimes it would work, but most of the time NOT. Of course the manual tells you to take it immediatley to mother Honda. NO WAY. What I do now is set the front and rear manually. Flip the switch on thelever on the left (far right)to front and liftthe lever on the far left. Flip to rear and do the same thing. Works fine. Once I am at cruising speed I lift and release the center lever. It begins auto leveling. You will know this by looking at the window lower right hand of fairing. It blinks black until leveling is complete. Hope this helps.
The --- --- is normal on startup of the ignition until you request information such as p.check (pressure check) or you activate the auto leveling switch. When I bought my bike, I got intermittant EEE EEE's. I found problems with the computer for the air suspension system. I picked up two units from Ebay. The guys I bought them from garrentted they would work and they did. I have a spare unit. I picked them up really cheap, one I paid $40 for the other I paid .99 cents for and again both work fine. But you don't have the EEE EEE's so you are good in that department. I pulled my compressor out, dried out the silica gel in the oven, cleaned the filters, cleaned electrical connections ect..... All work great now and has been for a year. I had problems with my switches but it was the electrical connections inside the fairing plugs. Cleaned them up and as I said, all is good.
