Check the wires to the indicators & switch ,you may have a short .which is draining the power out of the battery. When you get your bike running ,put a D/C voltage tester agross the battery terminal .At 1000 revs you shoukld have 13.5 volts .Rev up to 3000 and it should stay constant .if you are not getting 13.5 volts your regulator may be a fault .

A single click when you turn the key to the crank position usually indicates a bad starter. A rapid clicking noise usually indicates a dead battery. If you hear a click and everything goes dead there is a bad connection at the battery.

Hi . Entered our garage on an angle & indicator light did not switch off for quite a few hours before we noticed it . Does this frequently if dont come in to park straight. Battery on our cts cadillac...

When the battery went dead, it activated the anti theft system. That is why you can't get the key out of the ignition. If you do get it out, you still won't be able to start the car. Call the dealership and ask them what your options are, in the meantime, go to this website and read about the security sydtem:

While driving my saab, alot of warning lights came and stalls

alternator gone bad, 100%. as the voltage starts dropping, all the lights on the dash will go crazy because the electronics cannot perform their self diagnostics, as they do not have sufficient voltage.

Car wont start

Sounds like you have a shorted wire causing a drain. I recommend disconnecting the alarm all together which should stop the short so battery can remain fully charged.

My psm 400 receiver lights up red and wont work...

A red screen indicates a dead battery. Try a new battery. If that doesn't resolve the issue, then it will need to be sent to Shure for repairs.

Car want start factor security light flashing and car want start battery went dead and wont start since tried to jump start and everything won work

The factory security light will remain on - this is a standard feature indicating the car is dead.
First, unplug the hazard fuze in the engine bay (this will reset the ecu and remove the flashing)

Next, replace the battery with a new one (or one with proper charge) - keep in mind a small battery will not do anything for these cars, the engines require a lot to push them over (it isnt a honda)
*Make sure to clean the positive and negative battery cables from acid

Then just start it up :)
