Hi all,

I have a Stella Auto which I don't ride very often and probably will try to sell soon if I can get it running reliably.

One question for you all - should the ECS light be on when you turn the key on, or is it indicating a problem?

Also, the electric starter button does nothing - no clicks or anything whatsoever. I can sort of kickstart it to life. Thoughts on what is wrong there? The battery is charged and the horn and some lights work.

Thanks!

Also - I just checked the 2 fuses and both seem intact.

Doe the ECS light come on briefly or stay on constantly?

Genuine did a recall on the the Stella auto for carburetor control issues, was your Auto serviced under that recall?

When attempting to start, are you holding the rear brake lever?

The ECS light should come on briefly when the key is turned to the on position, this is to test the functionality of the light. After that, it should shut off. If it stays on, or starts blinking, then there's a problem.

The light comes on when the key is turned on, and then goes out when I press the starter button.

As far as the recall is concerned, I do recall taking it in to the dealer quite a bit in the first few months of ownership, and one time was to take care of a recall of some sort.

And yes, I'm holding the brake when pressing the button.

Thanks again.
