Hello
am brand new to scootering bought a ET2(2005) bout a month ago and have been loving it ever since. Untill today, first thing i noticed was fuel gauge not working then indicators and horn died on me (headlamp still working) So i pull over switch engine off. The electric start then died and would only kickstart so i made it home . Now it wont start at all and ignition light not even illuminating totally dead

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated Crying or Very sad emoticon

Check the battery water level, It shouyld be about 1/2 " from the top. Any lower and you need to add water to it. Check any fuses and then check to see if any of your wire junction boxes has sliped apart. This happened to my scoot just recently. Also your dealer shouls be willing to check it over for you.
Good luck and happy riding.

Here is a link to the ET2 shop manual.

<edit>

I see that that is the Tech manual.

Here is the workshop manual for the ET4. Perhaps it has the battery location for both ET2 & 4.

It is in the floor board of my GT200.

That fuse may have blown due to some short.

Be careful.
