P0705 Transmission range sensor circuit malfunction (PRNHL).

Getting this code when under a heavy load going over 55mph. I took the three gearbox sensors out and cleaned them and put them back in and there was no change. When it throws the check engine light there is no change in how it runs, nor do I get the "E" in the position box on the dash like some say that they get.

Just wondering where I should go from here? Is there some connections I should take apart and clean? Battery may be getting weak or something?

Bike in question is an 08 800 Rene

Thanks in advance guys.

I would assume you took the wires off the sensors as well and cleaned thos connections? Just making sure cause you wernt overly clear on that. There is also a 4th wire about 3-4 inches towards the front with the same style sensor for the 4x4 indicator light. It wouldnt hurt to clean and dielectric grease that one aswell. I will see if the manual has anything on testing them.

Yeah sorry I wasn't clear, but I did clean all of them, and I also cleaned and used dialectic grease on the connections.

I will do the 4x4 indicator sensor as well just to be sure, I didn't know about that one.

It just doesn't make sense that it only does it under a heavy load going above 50mph or so. I could drive it for 5 hours straight and never see it happen unless I get going that fast.

And again, it does not throw the indicator "E" error like some say happens under that condition.

So I am kind of at a loss. It doesn't affect how it runs at all but I just like my stuff to be running 100% to avoid issues when I am on long rides.

had the same thing as you, after cleaning all 4 wires - I kept getting the code.
What solved it was cleaning the speed sensor from the metal filings it collects.

its located at the same area - have a go at it and let us know

good luck

Awesome, I'll do that in the next few days here and post my findings. I think my neighbors are going to get sick of me riding the roads going 60mph though here pretty quick so hopefully I can get it fixed. Ha ha.

Same thing was happening to me - just cycle it once at the beginning of the trip and never get it again. Well that was getting a bit frustrating so I started digging . It was the VSS all along, but it didnt hurt cleaning all the other sensors located in the same area as I wrote above.

That's the 4th wire to the right of the 3 in the gearbox right? Did you have to replace it or just clean it??
