Centre Stand warning lamp flashing

While riding my '05 K1200LT today the electro-hydraulic centre stand warning lamp started to flash intermittently every few seconds or so. When I stopped the bike the stand did lift the bike but only just.

Can anyone please suggest what the problem might be???

Thanks

Harry, have you changed any lighting on the bike? It's happenned here in the colonies that the HCS will "fail" for some reason if the brake light circuit is under/overloaded...

Nothing has changed on the bike electrically. The only thig I did last weekend was to give the bike a good wash. (Horrible wet salty on the roads here in Blighty)

I was wondering if there was a wiring fault or water has get in somehow?

I would disconnect the HCS plug, dry it well, then use a lot of dielectric grease to reassemble the plug.
