Indicator lights permanently on

Hi

Im after some help, my
Indicators lights are permanently on and when trying to start, turns over, but does not fire up. Im not sure if its the bike (F4 1000) or the alam (Datatool S4 red fitted) ? Ive checked all the fuses in the fuse box and the battery is new.

Tried searching, but can't find anything similar.

Cheers for any help.

I have the same set up. 1000S + Datatool S4, but I don't recall my bike ever doing that. You say the battery is new, but is it fully charged? Is the starter turning over quickly when you try starting or is it labouring? If you have access to a multi meter I'd check the voltage at the battery terminals as a 1st test.

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!

Cheers for the reply. The battery is fully charged. It just turns over, but does not fire. All four indicators are on and the indicator light on the dash is lite. I think once this is resolved, it'll probably start.

Here's a few more things you could try:

Is the remote alarm fob working OK? i.e. do you get the indicators on the bike flashing 'normally' when you press the buttons on the fob?

Re the bike itself, can you hear the fuel pump, (in the bottom of the tank) priming when you switch on the ignition and does the instrument panel go through it's check routine when you switch on?

There is a fuse behind the LH side panel (opposite side to the main fuse box) which protects the starter relay, the relay should have a spare fuse on the opposite side to the fuse in use, have you checked that one is OK?

I had this on my 750S with the datatool alarm.. not sure it was the same as yours...
after a few hours in the shops, the phone rang "we want to remove the $#%& alarm!"
and after they did, no problems!
I have also had a problems with bad connections around on the bike... soldering broke in the joints because of water in the joints under the insulation..

Ok, from a USA guy who admittedly doesn't "get it". Why do you all have these data tool do-dads associated with your bikes? I keep reading thread after thread that ends with: "and I removed the Data-F ing-Tool and the problem resolved". WTF O?

very good point. Mine was fitted on the bike when new and cost 250 I think. At the time, due to my ignorance of alarm systems, i thought it was a good idea.

When i was stuck at the side of the road in Eastbourne and the bike wouldnt turn on I thought it was a bad idea. Apparently the data tool alarms are the worst on the market and they are the only ones which are affected by other signals being transmitted in the air, such as WIFI networks. I could never disarm my bike in the garage at work because there was way to much air 'traffic', i had to push it outside and disarm it there. Ridiculous. The alarm is now about 600 yards of the coast of Eastbourne.

Back to your problem though - The indicators being stuck on sure sound like an alarm problem and Id bet my bottom $ on the fuel pump not priming as its still armed. Check the keyfob is still sending a signal out, you can do this by pressing the button in front of your camera phone, the camera phone picks up the IR light and this is visible to the human eye through the camera. If you cant see any lights flashing then the batterys flat.

You can also disarm the alarm by using the keys in the ignition through a process of turns and holds, although you may need to set this up once you have disarmed it. well worth doing.

It may be worth trying to reset the alarm system somehow. Maybe if you disconnect the battery for a while and then reconnect it it might want to jump into life then?

Good luck.

In parts of the UK it can be difficult / very expensive to get insurance unless an alarm is fitted. Datatool is one of the few alarms thatare approved by the insurance companies.

Thanks for that Harvey! There should be a better option than Data Tool, not that there is, but there should be.
