Whazzzzzzzzzzzzz Uppppppppppppp? Are both my key fobs batteries dead of it this something else? Thanks in advance for the help. I know, I'm lazy and didn't so a bunch of searches on the site.

How old is the bike? The first thing I would check is the battery in the bike, it should be at 12.7V, across the terminals, then check the batteries in the fobs. Chances are they did not go dead at the exact same time, but check them anyway.

First thing I would check is what the hell is wrong with the turn signals. You're supposed to have to hit both of them immediately after turning on the ignition to get to the PIN prompt ... So if it's jumping there all by itself - Sum Ting Wong!

no, if it's a rushmore bike, then it will show enter pin in the odometer if you turn the ignition on.

Could be that both fob batteries were dead or that the antenna came unplugged or was just not picking up the signal.
As soon as I get off work I'm going to see what I can find, I was just looking for suggestions on where to start.

Start with the 50 cent fob battery before anything else. Yes, both fob batteries were probably installed at the same time and probably died around the same time.

or the battery in your 'spare' fob died long ago, and you just never used it so didn't know.

Well I went home and got my FOB, went to the garage turned the ignition and it started right up. No Enter PIN flashing. I checked both FOBs and they both worked. I checked he voltage of the batteries and they were both 2.88 volts. So I replaced both batteries and will check in the morning. Thanks my brothers for all the advice.

Glad to hear that it went back to acting normal. Sounds to me like either the fob batteries are weak or your bike was just being picky at that particular moment. You would laugh if you could watch us in the shop try to pull customer’s bikes in sometimes. Waving fobs in the air and all over the bike trying to get it to recognize it.

Had this happen as well. Worked, didn't, worked, then pin... Replace the fob batteries. No problem since.

Could have been electrical interference, that is no longer in the area. For example portable ham radio with high power amp.
