Today I went to the garage to adjust the headlight. To turn the headlight on, I needed to start the engine.

When I hit the button the engine didn't crank and error code 012 was displayed on the dash (first time for my 2015 with 106.000 km on the clock to throw an error code).

Quickly learned that error code 012 indicate "crankshaft position sensor" - but then I stumbled across this thread on UKGSer: https://www.ukgser.com/forums/showthread.php/437234-Super-Tenere-012-Fault-Code
A user called "boxer" post the following:

"Just in case anyone else needs the info in the future...........

Even though a 012 [crankshaft position sensor], error code was displayed the problem was the terminal on the wire which goes to the starter from the starter relay was slightly loose. You can see some burning around the bolt flange.

Relay part number: 4YR819400200 [RC19-018]."

It turned out that the terminal was slightly loose on my bike as well - probably a result of me fiddling with the wire, when I replaced the battery a few days ago.

When I had cleaned the terminal and tightened it properly the error code was gone, and the engine started as it should.

I seems to remember someone postet this problem before, but that was on a brand new S10.
And I for sure remember that I did control these wire on mine, after reading about it here.
Nice and quick troubleshooting:)
