Ducati Diavel Service Manual: Accelerator position sensor (throttle grip)

Introduction

An accelerator position sensor (aps) is mounted on the throttle body of the diavel, which measures the degree of aperture of the throttle grip.

Component assembling position

Accelerator position sensor (throttle grip)


The accelerator position sensor is mounted on the throttle body and is held in place by two screws.

Connection wiring diagram

Connection wiring diagram


Ccm engine control connection, s accelerator position sensor.

Main potentiometer (p): c orange signal - o, b supply (5v) brown/red - bn/r, a ground black/orange - bk/o.

Secondary potentiometer (s): f signal, green/black - g/bk, h supply (5v) brown/black - bn/b, g ground, black/white bk/w.

The two central pins d and e of the aps connector are not connected.

In the event of fault

In the event of an accelerator position sensor fault, the ecu disables the ride-by-wire system and the engine will not start, remains running at idle or stops.

Fault codes generated and possible correlated faults

Fault codes generated by the engine control unit and displayed by the dds (accelerator position sensor diagnosis):

Note

Check integrity of electric circuit - short-circuit to vdc = with dashboard on, using a voltmeter, a voltage is measured between the wire tested and ground.

Check integrity of electric circuit - short-circuit to ground = with the battery cables disconnected, using an ohmmeter, continuity is detected between the wire tested and ground.

Check integrity of electric circuit - open circuit = with the battery cables disconnected, using an ohmmeter, no continuity is detected between the two ends of the wire tested.

The dashboard service display shows the error "accelerator position" and the eobd warning light activates.

Possible correlated faults: inadequate engine power, incorrect idle speed (target idle speed is 1350 rpm with engine stabilised at operating temperature).

Check:

Throttle grip aperture may be checked using the dds.

If none of the tests described above identify the problem and the accelerator position sensor is in proper working order, contact ducati.

Component replacement methods

The aps sensor cannot be replaced individually. In case of fault it will not be necessary to replace the whole throttle body (see "operating principle and characteristics of the ride-by-wire system" of this section).

Correctly adjust the cables connecting the throttle grip to the throttle grip position sensor

Engine speed-timing sensor
Introduction The engine control system of the diavel is equipped with an inductive sensor that allows the ecu to determine the speed and timing phase of the engine. The sensor faces a phonic wheel ...

Changing the engine oil and filter cartridge
Note This operation has to be carried out with hot engine (but turned off) because the oil in these conditions is more fluid and its evacuation is faster and complete. Remove the drain plug (3) with seal (a) from the oil sump and allow the oil to drain off. Warning Dispose of oil and/or fil ...

Starter motor
Power: 0.7 Kw/12 v Direction of rotation: counter clockwise viewed from power take-off side. The starter motor is highly compact and reliable and therefore rarely gives any type of problem. In case of troubles, ensure that the starter motor cable terminal is properly tightened under the n ...

Indicator trip time - trip time
This function shows the vehicle trip time. The calculation is made considering the time travelled since the last trip 1 reset. When trip 1 is reset, the value is set to zero. The active phase calculation occurs when the engine is running and the vehicle is stopped (when the vehicle is not ...
