Starting failure

:,Recently on a few occassions while getting ready to start my '08 Roadglide, my signal lights begin flashing and the start button produces "no contact". After several attempts, I finally get it to start with no clue to why this occurred. My brotherlaw has experience the same with a '09 Streetglide. Any hints or like experiences, solutions?

You can also set up a code that you enter using your blinker switches for when the fob is not working

I am with Doc, it sounds like a dying key fob.

I had a similar problem & changed the key fob battery. For some reason the battery doesn't last that long. Now I pack a spare. just my $.02

Always a good idea to change the battery in BOTH key fobs, they seem to die at the same time no matter if you are using them equally or not.

God Bless & Ride Safe!
