If you are using key with red bow to start, then dont use that.Use the key with black bow.-----Disconnect the battery and wait for 10 minutes, then reconnect the battery and try to start the Yamaha xmax with any other key.The immobilizer light is flashing, that's the indication of wrong key.This light is flashing because its not detecting the key which you inserted in the ignition to start the bike.--------- In you have any other key, then try with that key, but first disconnect the battery for 10 minutes then reconnect and try with other spare key.This will help.------------
Exactly, why this light blinks?--------------
This light blinks if someone tries to steal your bike and uses a different key or method of starting your bike..it wont start unless your key that has a programmed chip is inserted..just a safety/security feature.--------- Or if your bike key chip is got faulty.In the key there is a chip and in the ignition lock cylinder there is a sensor.If that sensor do not detect the key, then this immobilizer light will blink.----------Try cleaning the chip in your key.By spraying wd-40 and then cleaning it with a dry cloth.Also spray wd-40 in your bikes ignition lock cylinder. Spray the wd-40 in the key hole.Let it remain there for few minutes, then insert the ket in the key hole and wiggle it to on and off.Then try to start and see.---------
If the bike starts with another key, then the previous key which you used is faulty and the immobilizer chip in the key has to be replaced and then programmed by the dealer.---------
But if the bike not starting with another key too.Then the problem is with ignition lock cylinder sensor.That sensor in the ignition key lock is faulty and not detecting key.The ignition key lock cylinder with sensor has to be replaced, by the dealer.-----------
In some cases this problem gets resolved automatically after exact 24 hours.
If you dont insert the key in ignition key hole.
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
