Another...'Is it the battery' Question
2002LT 24k miles... 2 yr old battery regularly used and put on a BMW tender.
I came home from a run the other day with seemingly no problems. The following day I was unable to start the bike. I have tried and retried and checked all the normal user errors. ie Not in reverse, in neutral, stop switch off etc. I appear to have power as the lights come on, but the horn does not operate...not even a feeble squeek! and nor do the indicators.
And, importantly, the imobiliser is appearing to do nothing. No indicators coming on...nothing.
So the question is...Is this the battery or is the imobiliser failing (Imobiliser battery replaced just in case, and the red light on the unit is showing.) Or is there somewhere else I should be looking.
I have poor mechanical skills, made up for with an unwillingness to give the dealer an open check!
Any help would be very much appreciated as the sun has started shining here in the UK.
