The engine light lit up on my husband's 2006 GTS250. About that same time it sounded a little throaty like the exhaust gasket might be about to go and would frequently stall as slowing down or stopping. Always starts back up.
Dropped it off at an authorized Vespa dealer/service center. They've been telling him now for 5+ weeks that they're waiting for new diagnostics software from Piaggio and, until then, they are unable to do any diagnostics.
They say the old software no longer works so have to wait for new. Anyone else hearing this?

The diagnostic software works fine. Perhaps one of their techs incorrectly installed the pads hardware while using it and fried the unit. This apparently happens on occasion. Call Vespa customer care and see if they can motivate your dealer to be more responsive.
