Hi I have a 2013 piaggio mp3 300 youban. Today whilst riding it cut out & the red warning light came on. It would not fire up. I found it had blown the fuse for the stabiliser lock.
Any idea why this happened? Thanks

The tilt lock light on the right side of the dash panel.

Once it has cut out the bike does nothing until the fuse is changed. As soon as its changed it starts up again but doesn't run for long before it blows the fuse again & cuts out??

Sounds like you have a short to ground causing the fuse to blow.

Yes would seem so but cannot find the problem. Have taken all the panels off to look but no joy so far 😕

Found that the header tank had a couple of tiny leaks. Replaced the tank & so far its running OK...

Other than still won't rev with tilt lock on. It has to be double clicked to make it work 🤦‍♀️

OK thank you but I thought it should come on automatically when you pull up at a junction I didn't realise you had to switch it on manually. Should it go off automatically when you set off? I have to click mine off. Is this correct?
Thank you

Not quite smart enough to turn on automatically. Too many variables.

Should turn off when you pull away. Sounds like there is a problem with your seat switch.

Do you remember which fuse(s) blown?

Thank you
I've tried disconnecting and bypassing the seat switch but neither made any difference.

The fuse problem was solved by changing the leaking header tank. The spraying water onto the electrics seemed to be causing the problem

How did you bypass the switch? You can't just jumper across it - that won't work. It has to be jumpered by a 3kohm resistor (3.3K will do).

OK thank you. I didn't realise that. I did just jump across it.
Where can I get a new sensor from?
