    General Warning Light at Start-Up? 2017 GSA

    Quick question. Either I've never noticed it or it's a new gremlin. My 2017 1/2 GSA is briefly displaying a YELLOW general warning light triangle along with the ABS and ASC lights which always go out once I start rolling. No other annunciator is pairing with the general warning light in the warning symbol area or warning notice area and it goes out quickly. Have I just never noticed the general warning light before? You'd think in 9000 miles and a year and a half of start-ups I'd have seen it. And no - I do not have access to a fault code reader to determine if there is a fault. And yes - I read my manual's pages on the general warning light. Thanks folks.

    Edit: I should have made clear, the general warning light triangle comes on when I power up, and stays on briefly as I fire up the engine, along with the ABS and ASC lights, all three of which quickly extinguish when I get rolling. I'm fairly certain this Yellow general warning light is a new thing and other GS/GSA riders tell me they do not get a yellow triangle when they power up; only the ABS and ASC.

    I would guess it’s alerting you that the ABS is not “synced” up as there has been no wheel movement.

    Problem solved. The key fob battery warning finally came on along with the yellow triangle. Swapped in a new 2032 and the light is happy now. So simple. Sorry to bother you folks.
