Lots of errors

Hey guys, Iím wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like what I did today.

I know some of you have had the DQS err show up and with a quick power off and restart it corrected the problem. Today I went for a relatively short ride since itís not real warm yet. On my way home (actually as I pulled on to my street) my bike started acting up, all at once the over rev/immobilizer light started flashing, I got DQS err and DTC err, the engine light came on and the bike started revving on its own. With the throttle closed and clutch in it would start to climb rpm and if I let the clutch out it would cause the bike to increase speed. I stopped and turned the bike off.. after a minute or two I started it up again and the DTC err was gone and the over rev / immobilizer light stopped flashing. However the engine light and DQS err were still on. I parked my bike in the garage and about 15 minutes later I went out and the DQS err was no longer on but the engine light was.. about 30 minutes after that I went out again and everything was back to normal..

Is this something I should be trailering the bike to the dealer for? Or does it sound like there was a software issue? I have been using the QS both up and down about 95% of the time.. not sure if thatís the problem?

With that many errors, and especially with the engine revving on its own, I'd think it's a safety issue now. I'd definitely let the dealer go through it. For every error it should log a fault in the ecu which the dealers can see through the Ducati Diagnostic System. Let them figure it out. It's got warranty.

Thats what scares me about these bikes,you wouldn't want that happening in the wrong place at the wrong time, my Panigale R just started picking up rpm on the highway last week all on its own,but i do have Tuneboy software and cruise control installed.

It's important to keep in mind with bikes like these that their electronics is essentially a modern-day laptop/desktop computer in nature. The computer in the bike doesn't actually shut down until the bike has been off for 5 minutes or so, so the amount of time the bike has been off plays a part in how capable the computer is at recovering from errors. Turning it back on before the 5 minutes is kinda like logging off of your profile on a PC but not turning it off. Waiting is equivalent to normal shut down. The triple click of the ignition start-up is kinda like booting in safe-mode and has the largest chance of fixing computational errors.

When is the last time the bike was in the shop? By the time my bike came up for its 600 mile service, they said there was a solid handful of software updates already out. I imagine Ducati is cranking out updates on a regular basis. If soft or hard resets don't fix the error, it's definitely worth taking in to the dealer ASAP. If they do fix the error, then it's something to keep in mind the next time you're in the area of your dealer so you can swing by for 15 minutes and get the update applied.

It was in the shop last Tuesday for a different problem, but they didnít say if they did anything but fix that problem. It hasnít hit the first service interval yet, I have 500km (300miles) on it. Iím going to take it in and have them hook it up tomorrow even though it eventually cleared all the errors. My biggest concern is the fact that it started revving on its own, granted it was like the bike thought the throttle was open just a bit so even when I pulled the clutch in it only started winding up the rpm slowly. What if next time it thinks the throttle is cracked wide open

Well, if it ecu cracks the throttle wide open, we hope the wheelie control is working. And that your holding on tight !
Jokes aside, there has to be some safety net that the bike canít do it ???

My 2017 Camaro ZL1 will rev to 5000rpms all on it's own (no pedal input from me). This has happened to several of us and has been well documented. So far Chevy hasn't done anything about it. So far no one has been hurt.....
I'd hate to have that happen on my bike!

Went out for my first track day on the bike and had the bike shut down into limp mode on two sessions bike would not rev plenty of errors and QS not working .
Your issue sounds like my issue .
After shutting the bike off in the pits everything went back to normal fine for the second session came back in the third

I took my bike in to the dealer this morning. They said the only codes recorded in the ECU were turn signal errors (whatever that means). They did say there was an injection update which they have completed. They said unless the error codes keep coming up consistently then not to worry and just do a reboot.
