Check the battery, try jump starting it with another battery. If the battery voltage drops too low, i believe the alarm default is to disble the bike. (Greasy little criminals will cut battery cables to disarm the alarm) so although you may have enough power to operate the lights and alarm, it may be droppoing too low to start.

I would not replace anthing yet! An intermittent light could mean that you simply have a wiring short! Get someone to help by watching your engine light, start your bike and do a wriggle test oun your wiring harness. You may find it to be no more than a simple wiring problem at the connector. You said there are no stored codes and the bike is running fine? No missing of sputtering? If not I would think the problen is no more than a possible temporary short in the wiring at the sensors

He's right! The key fob for the security system needs a clear signal to the module to disarm the bike. That's why the flashers turn on. If the fob is at the bike, the security module has lost it's memory, or the antenna for the key fob reception is not connected. You also need to squeeze the clutch lever to allow the engine to engage also...new safety feature i think for 07. Hope this helps.

With the bike turned off, remove the TSM/TSSM. This is the security module. Make the sure these connections aren't wet. And quit powerwashing your bike!

Turn the key to the ignition position. Quickly press both turn signal indicators, until a light on the dash flashes.
Enter the first digit of your 5-digit security PIN by pressing in the left-turn switch the same number of times. So if your PIN is 76543, you should press the left-turn switch six times.
Press the right-turn switch once to store the number and move to the next digit in your PIN code. Press the left turn signal six times to continue, until you get to the end. At the end of the process, the alarm will disarm and the light on the dash will stop blinking. You can now start the bike as normal
