New '08 F800ST less than 1000miles on it suddenly won't start. Sat unused in Garage for about 3 weeks. Went to start it and get clicking sound from underneath front left fairing. On-Board Computer and Dials (Speed and Tech) seem to reset themselves immediately after attempting to start.
Pulled battery and connected to Cheap $20 Wal-Mart Battery Charger which reported the battery was good with full charge. Reconnected Battery, bike still won't start. OBC and Dials light up, then push start button, clicking sounds start, release button OBC and Dials reset themselves.

It sounds like the controller board or the electronics in your WD enclosure have gone bad or gotten fried somehow. The good news is that more than likely all your information is still there. I would try to crack open the outer plastic casing and physically remove the drive. Then purchase an adapter from Amazon (like this one)
I have the same problem with my 2007 Escape Hybrid... First experienced it about 1 year ago. The vehicle produces periodic sounds like an electric motor running for several seconds. I believe this is from the motor driven safety relay that disconnects and reconnects the high voltage hybrid battery when the vehicle is not in use. I also can hear a high frequency scream that sounds like a switching inverter power supply. If the vehicle is unused for a day or two the 12V battery is discharged and a jump is needed to start the engine. Ford service could not diagnose the problem. The +12V battery tested OK, but since it was almost 3 years old it was replaced anyway. This helped for a while, but the problem returned after I recently left the vehicle unused for several days. I know the battery is good, it tests OK and is less than one year old! Somewhat reluctant to go back to the same Ford service agency because of their previous failure to fix it. Please advise if you have found a solution or have additional information. This is the only problem I have ever had with the hybrid Escape, but it is very annoying. I am forced to carry a jumper battery to make sure I don't get stranded.
Hello, Gosh my 51 reg renault does exactly the same! Took it to a garage had the throttle body replaced with a genuine renault part but went again few months later - this time the car would not start - relays corroded. Had the throttle body replaced under warranty (Jan 08) but then it went again - this time told by renault that a Wiring loom needed replacing - £150 +VAT & labour. Last week went again - i'm beginning to think that this car will never be fixed. Renault wanted to charge £300 to fix but told them we had had all this work done previously and they came back and said it was a faulty connection. Tonight (05th Sept 08) as i type this my husband is waiting for the AA to tow him to renault as it has, yes you've guessed it happened again!!!!!!! This is rediculous, does no-one at renault know how to fix this??!!
