    I just got my first Harley, Its a 2001 Night Train with an alarmsystem on it.

    1: When I turn on the ignition, the indicator lights flashes 6 times. Why ?

    2: When I start and drive the bike I got a light red light that looks like a key. Why?

    Does anybody know?

    Sounds like you need to read your TSSM codes (write them down) and see what's causing it and if they are historic or current.

    there are two places trouble codes are stored. the ECM and the TSSM. When you have a TSSM code the key light comes (stays) on.

    Search this forum for How to read Diagnostic Troubleshooting Codes (DTC)

    Once you have establised if the code is historic OR you have fixed or found the current code to be a redundanct item. You can clear the codes.

    For 2001 and up Harley Davidsons with TSSM Security Module, (key icon displays when key is turned to ignition position)

    if your security light stays on for a prolonged period of time, if you have changed your battery or disconnected your battery when fitting components such as LED turns & if you have fitted LED turns without a load equalizer, you will need to reprogram your OEM Module.

    text in red below step procedure is confirmation of action, always wait for confirmation before hitting the next step:

    step # 1. move handle bar kill switch to off position

    step # 2. turn your ignition key: on-off, on-off then on

    step # 3. hit the left turn signal twice.
    your turn signals and indicator light will flash 1 - 3 flashes

    step # 4. hit the right turn signal once.
    turn signals and indicator light will flash once.

    step # 5. hit the right turn signal once.
    turn and indicator signals will flash twice.

    step # 6. hit right turn signal once.
    turn and indicator signals will flash three times.

    step # 7. hit left turn signal once.
    turn and indicator signals flash to indicate error code
    (see error code thread)

    step # 8. to now clear codes, hit left turn signal and hold down for 6 seconds until confirmation.
    turn and indicator signals flash twice.

    step # 9. turn the ign switch to off
    TSSM is now reset
