OK......I know that you are mad and frustrated and I am sorry about that BUT............

You already have one discussion thread on here about this.
If a dealer with help from CanAm can't figure it out, it is not likely that anyone reading this will be able to help either......no matter how many times you ask.

The time you spend typing messages in forums like this likely would be better spent in calling CanAm......every day if necessary.

Sorry to hear about all your issues. Based on your previous posts it sounds like there have been a number of corrective measures attempted in the form of parts, computer scans, battery replacement etc.

The fact nothing you have done seems to have corrected the issue makes it sound more likely to me you may have a bad electronic control module. The ECM is the brain of your Spyder. Although not a common fail item it’s not unheard of for them to go bad either which can cause issues with running properly, transmission shifting issues, throwing codes, etc. There is no way to test this other than replacement unfortunately and really is a last resort if every other conceivable thing that could cause this has been looked into (sensors, oil levels, BUDS scans). I really think the ECM in your case should be considered suspect if your dealer hasn’t. I do hope I’m wrong because it won’t be cheap however you may need to begin preparing yourself. Let us know how you make out and good luck!

I’m also assuming the gear position sensor has been looked at?

I just wonder if they put the right one in. As I understand it, different year bikes have slightly different ECM's. The same goes for the dash screens.

U0101 and U0303 codes relate to a communication problem somewhere between the ECM and the various electronic systems on the bike. It could even be as simple as a poor connection in a connector, cracked or broken wire, etc. I would try inspect all the various electrical connections on the bike including the ground. I would examine the connecting pins and if you have the knowledge test for electrical current. Before plugging the connectors back in give them a dab of dielectric grease. Did the previous owner add anything in the form of after market accessories, power commander, lights, etc? Tying after market accessories into the original electrical system could also cause you problems.

Whatever your issue very much sounds like an electrical fault somewhere which can be a real pain in the butt to find.

I had an issue with the piece on the left handle bar that you control your dash with, radio, trip and settings. When it was on the handle bars like normal it would throw codes. When it was apart just hanging there it was fine, no codes.They replaced it and never had a problem after that.
