Default flashing turn signals/ won't start

We've had a bit of a winter in KY. Today it warmed up, went to start and nothing. The turn signal arrows blinked on and off multiple times. Lights on, horn blows, etc. Doubt its' battery. What does blinking turn signal arrows mean.

You doubt it's battery but that's the first thing I'd check if it's been setting. Try pressing both turn signals at the same time and see if they stop blinking.

Do you have a security system? I don't, so I don't know how they act, but it sounds like something that it might do if it's tripped. IMHO

If you have a security system, it's because the sensor is not detecting the key fob. Make sure you have the fob in your pocket.

Security system. Never thought of that. Probably 'cause I don't have one.

I'll bet your battery is dead in your key fob. I had the same thing happen to me.I think it's a 2023 Battery. buy it almost anywhere. Goodluck!

Had this happen before .. was a flat spot on the ignition switch .. May not be it .. but worth jiggling it a little ... But Key Fob sounds more likely ..

You can start the bike without the fob by entering the security code with the turn signal buttons. It's a PITA but will get you to a battery store

Had a similar problem a couple months ago. Changed the key fob battery - no dice.
Intermittent no start. Had lights, alarm blinking, radio, but the starter button was useless.

Chased the wiring and found I was getting a signal to the solenoid, but no action. Common diagnostic procedures say - bad starter.

Began the starter swap out and found the starter bolts were not very tight at all. Having experience from days wrenching on cars, I said.." hey! that's a problem! "
I re-tightened the starter bolts and Voila' problem solved. No, I didn't torque 'em, I just gave them a good snug.

FWIW - 07 Ultra.

Might not be your problem, but it's worth checking. Especially if the bike has been sitting and any type of surface scale has built up between the starter housing and the engine case, thereby disrupting the flow of electricity.
