2002 brake failure light

I'm confused my brake failure light flashes 4 times per sec and warning light stays on constant. Now I've just put a new battery in and checked all my fluid and they are full to top. When the weather is cool like 50 or below it don't come on till around 10 miles but if I try and reset it by shutting off engine it comes back on within 1/4 mile. Now when it's warm outside 50 or above it comes on within a mile Almost like its a temp problem. When the bike gets warm it starts. My servos still work I can hear them. Any help will be very much appreciated

Re: 2002 brake failure light

The only obvious help from the Clymer manual from what you describe is "At least one brake circuit (front, rear or both) is operating in residual braking function mode."

Re: 2002 brake failure light

I have no idea what's causing this. I guess I will have to go to bentonville Arkansas to have it coded which is 130 miles Unless someone closer has a gs-911
Until then I'm riding it. NO FEAR. We all have to go out some way.
