FAULT FINDING Vespa ET S YMPT OMS. If the plug looks wet but you cannot tell if it is gasoline or oil remember that gasoline will evaporate, oil will not. POSS IBLE REASONS. Choke staying on. Remember that the choke defaults to ON. Refer to the information below about testing the choke to answer these questions: 1.

Is the choke getting power when the engine is running? Is the choke unit working? Carburetor flooding. Refer to the information below to understand the test for fuel leve l. Is the fuel level reasonable with the engine idling? Does the level begin to drop when the engine is run at high speed for a period?

Faulty vacuum tap. If the diaphragm in the vacuum tap is split then fuel can be sucked down the vacuum pipe and into the manifold. Remove the vacuum pipe from the tap. If the pipe is wet inside the tap must be faulty. Air filter clogged. It is unlikely that a reasonably new vehicle will have a clogged filter but is worth checking if you are running out of ideas.

A high mileage vehicle may have collected a lot of dust that is clogging the element. Replacement is probably the best solution. Remember that the choke defaults to being ON so it is unlikely that a cold starting problem is due to a malfunctioning choke. As the wax warms the electrical resistance measured across it increases until it becomes open circuit.

In most circumstances the choke will then remain off purely by the heat of the engine. The ambient temperature will affect the time taken for the choke to turn off. Vespa ET2 50cc engine. These motor scooters have headlights that are run from 1 2 volts AC. AC can only be supplied when the engine is running so the choke cannot begin to turn off until the engine is running.

Vespa ET4 cc LEADER engine. ET4 employs a relay so that the choke will be powered by DC but is triggered by the AC supply when the engine starts. FAUL T S The most likely choke fault is the choke remaining ON. Symptoms will be anything that may be caused by a rich mixture.

High fuel consumption. Black spark plug. Rough running when hot. OK when ridden hard but rough and four stroking at 20 mph. Fails to start. Plug is found to be black and fouled. To check if the choke unit is operating. Refer to diagram 1. Remove choke unit from the carburetor.

Measure the distance the plunger is protruding from the body, when it is cold. Attach a 1 2 Volt battery to the socket and leave it for two or three minutes. The plunger should have extended by 4 -5 mm. Disconnect the battery. The plunger should retract slowly over a couple of minutes. To check the choke circuit. Refer to diagram 2 for ET2. Diagram 3 for ET4 1.

Follow wire from the choke unit until you find a grey two-pin plug and socket. Resistance check will confirm continuity through the choke unit. To prove the choke circuit. Connect a voltmeter across the two pins of the socket. With the engine running you should have system voltage. If no voltage then the choke will not turn off.

Remember that the choke defaults to being ON. If the choke does not turn off the symptom will be a black and fouled plug. Or; the scooter starts and idles ok and runs at speed ok. When riding slowly 2 0 mph the engine runs very roughly and four strokes badly. Choke units all look much the same but are different and it is important to use the correct choke in the correct carburetor.

Vespa ET2. If you find the float bowl only half full then the engine will run weak and may be hard to start. The electrical system on the new Leader engine is very different to previous two stroke and four stroke Piaggio engines. Everything shares one common supply.

When the ignition is turned on power is supplied to the CDI via the orange wire terminal 5. Ignition pick up is via green wire terminal 2. Output to the HT coil is via purple wire terminal 3. The unit is earthed via black wire terminal 8. The wires connected to the unmarked terminals are from the antenna that is mounted around the ignition lock barrel.

Yellow wire terminal 6 supplies the LED on the instrument panel. This LED should be flashing with the ignition turned off to confirm that the immobilizer system is functioning. See the notes below about using the LED for immobilizer fault finding. There is no separate indicator relay.

Choke unit. The choke is now controlled by the CDI not the regulator. Power is supplied to the choke via the orange wire when the ignition is turned on. Carburetor choke. The carburettor heater will start working as soon as the ignition is turned on. Power is supplied via the orange wire. Use the exiting test box in this socket. The first flash will be long 2 seconds or short 0. A Long flash means the CDI is not programmed.

Short flash if the CDI is programmed. Next is a series of short 0. Fault with Key or antenna. The last thing to notice is whether the LED finally remains on or off. CDI not programmed. Engine will run up to rpm. Key transponder not detected. Fault with transponder or a erial.

Engine will run up to 2 0 0 0 rpm. System function normally. Fault with transponder or aerial. Ignition not possible. CDI programmed. Key transponder detected but not recognized. Any yellow-to-yellow should give continuity. Yellow to ground should not give continuity.
