Re: Fault Code 12 on Odometer!!
« on: December 10, 2017, 08:08:44 AM »
I have a 2012 Stratoliner Deluxe it also has the code 12 showing.  When trying to start it just clicks.  It had been sitting for a few weeks then after a cold front thought that I would crank it up and take for a ride to get everything going again.  After a couple attempts at starting it just gave the code 12 and wouldn't do anything but click.  Should I take it to a shop or can I clear it at my house?  Thanks

I paid for a mobile mechanic to come by. He tells me that its the starter relay and that the clicking means its the starter relay. From what I could see the error 12 comes up if you have thumbed the starter switch too many times trying to start it. Mine cleared when I managed to start it one last time before it wouldnt start again.... I ordered the $70 relay part and await its arrival. I will let you know if it works... Of course you might not have the same sequence of issues...

My 07' did the same thing too.  Replaced the battery and all is good.
