Hello Everyone, I recently purchased a 2009 MP3 400 with 900mile and recently got a chance to ride it on the streets and freeways. The Scooter has a few issues and I was wondering if anyone else had the same or similar issues?

I can switch the MP3 from "km" to "miles" and "c" to "F" and set the time. When I turn the MP3 off it doesn't retain any of the settings.

The Scooter's "Immobilizer / antitheft LED" turns on when the key is switched to the on position along with all the other instrument panel lights then turns off. When the MP3 is off I never get the solid Led light indicating that the "Immobilizer / antitheft LED" is active.

Thanks for your help,

For the first issue check your fuses, your keep alive fuse is blown, I had the same issue. Think it is in the fuse block by your right foot if I remember right.

Immobilizer LED should blink when key is off.

Hello, I changed the fuse with the same results, with the scooter power off and with a tester light all fuses except one(7.5) closest to the rider light's up.

It blinks for 24 hours and then shuts off to save battery.

If you turn the key on and then off it will be blinking again.

Hi, i have exactly the same issue but my fuses are ok. Is there any other solutions?
I have brand new battery and voltage rectifier.
I've checked every single fuse around with no issues.
Thanks
