Do you have the security system on the bike? If so this is the system working and it needs to be reset.

Hazards flash 6 times, bike wont start


Your anti theft system is activating when it flashes. You need to push the button on your key fob to disarm it. When you do the flashers should flash once or twice to signal that it is armed/disarmed. If it does not, try replacing your battery in your fob. or use the anti theft codes with your ignition switch and turn signal buttons. Check your users manual to do that.

4 ways are on and can not get them off?


The 2003 Softail TSM/TSSM's turn signal feature provides for Automatic cancellation; Manual cancellation; Four-way flashing and Diagnostics mode.


Turn signals can only be activated or deactivated with the ignition key in the "IGN" position, not the "ACC" position.


If you press the left or right turn switch the signal will activate both the turn signal operation/illumination and the automatic cancellation function. If you press the button a second time the signal will cancel. Also if you have one signal on and you press the opposite signal switch button the first set signal will cancel and the second pressed side will operate. However if you do not press the signal switch button the second time the signal will remain on and will not cancel while you are approaching the turn but will only automatically cancel after the TSM/TSSM senses that the turn has been completed because when the signal switch button is depressed the TSM/TSSM starts to count to twenty after which it will cancel the signal function if speed is not reduced below 7 MPH but as long as the speed of the motorcycle is above 7 MPH or is stopped the signals will not cancel until speed is resumed to above 8 MPH at which time the 20 count will resume and the signal will cancel after the end of the 20 count. The signals will also cancel within two seconds after the bank angle sensor in the TSM/TSSM senses more than a 45 degree lean of a turn action after which the motorcycle returns to a normal upright riding position. As well the TSM/TSSN will calibrate itself after it senses that he motorcycle has been ridden for one quarter of a mile or four tenths of a kilometer at steady speeds in an upright position. ON


The TSM/TSSM also flashes the signal simultaneously as four way flashers whenever the ignition is set "ON" , the security system is not activated and both signal switch buttons are simultaneously depressed. If you have to leave the motorcycle where it is with the four signal lights flashing they will continue to flash for two hours if while they are flashing you turn off the ignition switch and activate/arm the security system but if you turn the ignition switch is turned on, disarm/deactivate the security system and depress both signal light switch buttons simultaneously the four lights will cease to flash before the two hour period is up.


An auto arming feature that is not always active on domestic motorcycles but is user selectable on these models but that is always active on HDI models Auto-arming requires that the four-way flashers be activated within 30 seconds of key OFF or after the vehicle has been disarmed. This allows a vehicle to be left in a secured state with the four lights flashing until they are turned off as described above.


If the four way flashers are not turned of before the security system is disarmed/deactivated then the TSSM will stop four way flashing for one second and then per flash the lights one time to signal that the system has been disarmed/deactivated and then after one more second the four way flashing will resume.


When there is a burned out light bulb on one side of the motorcycle, the remaining light on that side and the turn signal indicator light on that side will flash at double the normal rate after the fifth flash so if that happens check your signal light bulbs.


As the TSM/TSSM also diagnoses for signal wiring short circuits and opens AND for stuck signal light switches if there is a stuck turn signal light switch the automatic turn signal cancellation feature will not work and the signal will continue to flash AND if there is a stuck turn signal switch the four way flashers will only be activated if both of the turn signal switch buttons are held in for more than one second so if the four way flashers are on when a signal switch becomes stuck you may have to hold them in for a longer period of time to cancel them also.


Otherwise if you are having turn signal or four way flasher problems you should check for TSM/TSSM trouble codes.

Why my turn signal lights are flashing no my flht 2002


Is it turn signals or four way flashers??? There is a big difference. With a TSM (not a TSSM) if the four-way flashers flash 6 times shortly after the ignition switch is turned to ON you should check for DTC's that have been set.

With a TSM if the four-way flashers flash 6 times shortly after the ignition switch is turned to ON you should check for DTC's that have been set. d1a9 is not a 2005 Sportster code.

If you do not know the security code, you can reset it to your own choosing.
With the fob present, turn IGN switch:
IGNITION-OFF-IGNITION-OFF-IGNITION
Press LEFT turn signal switch 3 TIMES
Press RIGHT turn signal switch 1 TIME and release
Turn signals will flash 3 times. Current PIN will appear in odometer. The first digit will be flashing.

If changing PIN, enter first digit (a) of new PIN by pressing LEFT signal switch (a) time(s) i.e., for the number 1, press one time. for the number 5, press 5 times.

Press RIGHT signal switch 1 TIME and release.
the new digit (a) will replace the current in odometer window.

Enter second digit (b) with LEFT signal switch.

Repeat until PIN is set.

Once PIN is set (either new or old PIN), to disarm security system, DO NOT sit on seat, lift bike off kick stand, or anything else that will activate the security mode!

Turn IGN to IGNITION.

Quickly (within 2 seconds) hold BOTH turn signal switches until confirmation signal (KEY icon flashes at fast rate, in odometer window, a flashing "-" will be followed by 4 more dashes = "----")

Enter 1st digit (a) in PIN by pressing LEFT turn signal switch (a) times (i.e., 5 times for the number 5)
The 1st "-" will become the 1st digit (i.e., "5")

Press RIGHT switch signal 1 TIME.
The 1st digit is stored and the dash will flash.

Enter 2nd digit (b), and repeat sequence until done.

After the 5th digit is entered, the KEY icon stops blinking, and the system is disarmed.

The system will stay off until the IGN switch is turned off.

If at any time during disarming sequence an error is made, wait 2 minutes before trying again.

Hi Carl, you may need an alarm reset, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections check negative cable at both ends. (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to on.
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.
7. Security alarm not disarming

I've charged my battery, but my bike still won't start. Also, the security light is on, but I have my key fob in my pocket.


The usual reasons the fob doesn't disarm the security system is:
1) a damaged fob
2) discharged fob battery (Panasonic 2032 or equivalent)
3)electromagnetic interference
a. verify the fob in not in a metal enclosure or within 3" of any other electronic device.
b. place the fob on the seat, start motor and return fob to pocket.
c. move the bike at least 15' from the spot of interference.
With the Fob near the bike, try disabling the security system.

You'll need the PIN number.
If you don't know it, you'll have to change it to a 5 digit PIN number you select.

With the fob present, turn IGN switch:
IGNITION-OFF-IGNITION-OFF-IGNITION
Press LEFT turn signal switch 3 TIMES
Press RIGHT turn signal switch 1 TIME and release
Turn signals will flash 3 times. Current PIN will appear in odometer. The first digit will be flashing.

If changing PIN, enter first digit (a) of new PIN by pressing LEFT signal switch (a) time(s) i.e., for the number 1, press one time. for the number 5, press 5 times.

Press RIGHT signal switch 1 TIME and release.
the new digit (a) will replace the current in odometer window.

Enter second digit (b) with LEFT signal switch.

Repeat until PIN is set.

Once PIN is set (either new or old PIN), to disarm security system, DO NOT sit on seat, lift bike off kick stand, or anything else that will activate the security mode!

Turn IGN to IGNITION.

Quickly (within 2 seconds) hold BOTH turn signal switches until confirmation signal (KEY icon flashes at fast rate, in odometer window, a flashing "-" will be followed by 4 more dashes = "----")
