    All very bizarre then, this was supposed to be a bloody simple job.

    Will phone BMW this morning and see what they say.

    it is a simple job,i suspect the dash is down to a short or soemthing,make sure you check all fuses+and relays are seted propoery,they could have been disturbed when taking out battery

    I've checked everything from what I can see Scooby, may be I have disturbed something but not visible to me and I'm not very techie either. Phoned my BMW dealer and they're on their way to collect the bike and take back to the garage to stick it on the computer and see what's what. Suspect I'm going to get dry bummed for all this now :/

    Hi Guys,

    Thought I'd give you a quick update. BMW took the bike yesterday and today confirmed that the main fuse had been blown which caused the errors to be thrown up. Fuse replaced, errors cleared, they've taken it for a test ride and all is fine. They're dropping back off tomorrow. All in all, I'm happy that nothing serious went on. Now looking forward to getting my baby back tomorrow

    Thanks for all the input chaps!

    Thanks for confirming the cause, it's really helpful to people looking things up later.
    Glad the fix was 'cheap'.

    Thanks Alex, 'cheapish' and not as bad as I expected. £50 for collection and drop off and 30mins labour at £52, all in all £102. One expensive fuse, but glad nothing serious and no major part needed replacing

    glad you got it sorted,thought you'd checked them all...

    if your unsure in future,post a picture up,it's a lot easier to explain where you should be looking next time.

    I had an issue with a flat battery in past and that resulted in a change of ignition barrel at the dealer.
    Is there a thread on this that I can look up? Or if you could explain please what led to the ignition failure? I might be needing to change that soon too.
