Hello All,

I bought a 2000 AT last week. On the dash there are various warning light indicators eg Oil, turn, beam etc etc. In the bottom left there is an red LED that flashes red when the engine is turned off. I have no idea what it is. Any ideas? Has anyone else got this on their AT? My guess would be an alarm indicator but the bike is not alarmed.

From top to bottm, left to right on the photo the following are what the warning indicator lights are

Oil, Turn
High beam, Neutral
??????? red flashing light, Side stand

H.I.S.S. light.
Thanks, I never heard of H.I.S.S before but a quick trawl around the web...

H.I.S.S. is the Honda Ignition Security System. Each ignition key has a unique serial number that is sent wirelessly to the ECU. If a key's number doesn't match the list of keys authorized to start the bike, the ECU won't run the engine.

_________________________________________

Will this have an effect on my battery if the bike isnt started for a while? eg how long without use before the battery is drained?

And a bit more trawling the web found this, so Im going to leave the bike for 24 hrs to see if the light switches off.

Honda Ignition Security System (H.I.S.S.)
Honda's highly capable H.I.S.S. anti-theft system features a fail-safe electronic interlock that prevents the engine from being started in any other way than using the motorcycle's two original keys. Totally disabling the engine at the very heart of its ignition system, the system cannot be bypassed by either hot-wiring the ignition or exchanging the ignition switch module, thus effectively deterring joyriders and greatly reducing the possibility of ride-away theft.
Like most of the other machines in the Honda Supersport lineup, the CBR600RR's system features a red warning LED built into its instrument panel that visually warns-off potential thieves by constantly blinking at a 5-second interval for a period of 24 hours, then switching off while the Ignition Security system itself remains fully active and alert. A large, diamond-shaped H.I.S.S. sticker on top of the fuel tank cover clearly indicates the presence of this highly effective security system, providing a strong message for would-be bike thieves to look elsewhere for easier pickings.

It's certainly not HISS that's for sure. I agree with the dummy alarm light hypothesis.
