I have read most of the threads about this but still don't have an answer to my issue. I have an '09 LT with 28K miles. Recently I have had issues with my EHCS beyond the ocassional misfire. At times I have had the stand fall while going up but this has usually been because I was on dirt or uneven gound. A few days ago I kept getting the hour glass symbol but the stand would finally work. Someitmes I get a "!" symbol, which I don't know what it means. Yesterday when I pulled into my garage the stand would not work at all. I took the bike out out to my shop and put it on the lift. I couldn't find any loose wires or anything that looked obviously wrong. I took the pivot bolt out and one of the bolts on the left side of the stand starter mount. I moved the whole pump/starter assy back but could not get it to drop out of the stand. Since it was getting late and I was tired I sprayed the whole assy down with WD-40 and left it over night. This morning I decided to put it all back together with the intentions of riding to BMW of Atlanta to talk with the techs. After I pulled out of the shop and back on the driveway I decided to see if it worked. Amazingly it worked just like it is supposed to. I tried it at least 6 more time in the next few minutes and it worked flawlessly. I cancelled my 100 mile ride to Atlanta thinking no need to take it to the doctor if it isn't sick. I went for a short ride later in the day and when I pulled in my garage...nothing again. All I get is the yellow light flashing and no sound at all. After several attempts I did get the "!" symbol. Has anyone had his problem? It sounds like something simple since it works intermittently. Is there a particular switch that could be bad or going bad? TIA for your advice.
