Spring start up. No go

03 DL1000, turns over but no joy. Eventually the F1 light flashed so I checked the codes and got C32 and C33. Front and rear injectors. Have a buyer coming to see it Saturday if I can start it. Manual calls for inspecting the connectors and continuity so I'll start there. Anyone having any insight or experience with this? Would be great to hear from you. Thanks

I had a Jeep do that the morning of a sale and it was moisture.

Moisture maybe. But probably disconnect and reconnect or try some electrical contact cleaner. If you know what continuity means you’re probably good to troubleshoot. Good luck!

The bike wants to stay with you. It's Karma, man.

Check first the main connector LH side of the headstock. Look for a white powder or any corrosion. If not there check every connector you can find.
The signals come from the ECU to the injectors.

Look particularly for Green/White stripe, Green/Black stripe (signal), or Yellow/Red stripe.

THANKS BROCKIE! That is now the #1 test. It's crunch time so it's the only thing on my to do list. So far I've been told everything from weak fuel pump to injector cleaning to face north and sacrifice a chicken. Well the chicken thing didn't work so wiring 1st and then I guess the injectors. Cheers

You're welcome. I favour the Yellow/red stripe wire as you say that both injectors are affected. The fact that both injectors are out must be a clue to the solution.
If you cannot find a wiring problem then you must check for spark and fuel pressure.
I'm sorry that the chicken sacrifice didn't work.

A friend was fond of the idea of offering up a small animal when things weren't going well. It might work to appease the wiring gods. No harm in trying....except to the small animal'
But maybe a marshmallow Peeps chicken would do the trick?

Might be a stretch, but also ensure no mice have been nesting/chewing on wires.

It's ALIVE. After Brockies advice I looked at the wiring diagram which is usually pointless for me. That seemed to be useful for the fuel system components and any other wire cross over. Found any connectors with these colors and cleaned and them. Turned the key, no F1 and it fired up instantly.

Thanks for the input peoples. This forum and a couple like it have helped me with how to approach a problem as much as what is the problem. That's important. You know "Build a man a fire keep him warm for a day. Set a man on fire keep him warm for the rest of his life." sorta thing.

The chicken sacrifice was not a total waist as I do own a BBQ. A special shout out to Grey Wolf who also helped immensely and would no doubt be chuffed to know it. While being mortified with my bad grammar. Cheers and thanks again peoples.

PS: The brown connector just under the back left side of the tank seemed suspicious and poorly connected. If I had to guess, that would be it.

That has happened under the hood of my 4Runner. Even tried to eat their way through the air filter.
