Download a manual it covers that. Plus, it will come in handy in the future.

Re: Bike Won't start-FI light and C42 error code

greetings SV world, I have an 07 SV650S I picked up at an Insurance Auction. The front end was mangled, but not too bad, the ignition switch was hanging broken/no key. I turned the ignition switch with a pair of pliers, and with a jump it started right up (with no instrument cluster) I swapped out the front end ( 07 GSX-R) cut the old ignition switch away and put a new battery in. Now it won't start. It turns over and will run as long as you feed the air box with starter fluid. I took the inst cluster off my 06 and put it in Dealer Mode. I get a c42 error code...Ignition Switch Anti Theft. It does not appear to be a true ignition problem because it does start and run if you squirt and keep squirting starter fluid in the air box.

I read through the thread re c42 from back in 09...anyone have any new info ideas?

02 SV650 race bike, 06 SV road worthy, 07 SV being prepped as Race back-up, 73 Norton 750 Commando, 75 Triumph 750 Trident, 78 BMW R-100/5, 2003 Ducati Multistrada 1000DS, 2005 Suzuki BR-Z400

Something went wrong there. Either a damaged switch or wires. The bike will not run if C42 error code is showing. Fixing that is step number one.

Take a look at DEcosse's post above, it is good advice. Post back if you need more help.
The truth will set you free... but first it will pis you off! -anon

Isn't there a resistor in the switch for anti-theft?
