Bike will not start because alarm will not deactivate

I own a 2003 road king harley, and the 10,00 mile check done on it and rode the bike home, approx 6 miles, I had gone on a long trip form Wa state to Vegas and back the bike got pretty dirty so when I got home from the shop I decided to wash the bike up, I had done this before but after getting it all cleaned up and wiped down decided to go for a ride and blow and water that may be hiding in the cracks and then wipe it down again, the bike would not start, the only thing that was happening was the alarm light were blinking and the key light would flash, tried to deactivate with my key ring alarm but no luck, so I went and got a new battery and the same no luck, lights flash, key light blinks and will not start, not even a spark, so did I amy have shorted something out the bike has been sitting for 5 days and still will not start. Thanks Jim

Another common problem. Open transmitter, remove battery - there's a small tang dead center under battery. I think it's bent down. Use small screwdriver bend upward to act as spring against battery. Reinstall battery and cover. That should do it! Works for 80% of transmitters. Otherwise you have to take it to a dealer and they'll put it on the digital tech and relearn your code to your moduel, but battery trick works most of the time. It gets bent down being in pockets and getting the button pushed. Let me know if this worked.

I'm always hestitant to offer suggestions on the newer Harleys, my experience is all on 1999 and earlier carb bikes. But try the standard stuff first. No horn or lights leads me to check my connections and fuses starting with the ground for the battery. Torque em up a little and see if it helps
