Can anybody out there in Silverwing land wise me up to the use/reason for the blinking warning light on the dash panel that blinks only when the bike is switched off.

In particular the small red blinking light in the centre of the dash that reads MISS ??

The body work is different, but apart from the fact this was a Japanese domestic bike there appears very little in anything different with the "T switch" being the only non standard fitting to the US specs.

Its a 2009 model with 5 thou miles on it and other wise unmarked.

Ill try to put a picture of the dash and the front of it on here.

G'day mate,  the blinking red light is the HISS is the Honda Ignition Security System installed on the FJS Silver Wing. I don't know that much about it, apart from it works in conjunction with the coded ignition key. When the engine is switched off and key removed, the HISS light blinks for a number of hours afterwards. How long I've no idea because usually I'm back in the house, or wandering about somewhere probably looking for pies.  Smile



My spare ignition key has a metal tag attatched to it with a 8 digit code for ordering replacement coded keys.

I've never seen that on my 08 but wonder if it could be some sort of burglar alarm.

And pies are good too Meldrew.

Hey Dale the coded key was not included on the USA imports. So we don't see the blinking light.

OK Siataukreg, Thank you for that.

As I only bought this bike yesterday and rode it 600 k's home I wasn't able to get to the bottom of it especially as we don't have a manual for it.

Would you be able to spell out for me how it is set please, or email me a file with the instructions ?

Much appreciated

That's fantastic, and many thanks, -- downloading as we "speak", but more to the point, what is half of England doing up in the middle of the night ??

I guess at 69 I still have that to look forward to.

Thank for your interest and assistance, all now sorted and I can sleep at night knowing my battery is not going to be flattened by the "red blinking light'.

In my industry, a red blinking light definitely has to be sorted pronto.

Cheers

We don't have the HISS system because we are so honest. Laughing Or maybe nobody wants to steal a scooter. Mad

You don't have HISS (or a 12v socket in the left glovebox pocket) because they're only OE on the FJS version of the Silver Wing.

Pete 

Actually your 12mm socket is there, it's just in a parellel universe. The same parallel universe as the missing sock you've been searching for  --though they are not there in the same "time". 

That's what the blinking LED was all about. It also functions as an  out-of-phase detector which warns of that parallel dimension. When the LED stops blinking something may or may not happen (relative to that dimension)

Just like the missing sock, your missing socket will reappear though maybe not where you expect to see it. It all depends on when another phase shift occurs and the item is released.

Did you have both keys in close proximity while the engine was running bud ? With the ignition turned on there should be a minimum of 50mm of airspace between the two keys or their transponder signals could jam each other & cause the proper operation of the HISS system to be obstructed

That could have been the case in the dealership as there are two keys and they were together. All seems to be operating normally now though, Thanks for your input and I now have a downloaded PDF manual as well. Cheers. Pete

To be honest there's not much special about the 12v socket. I'm not a fan of it being permanently live. Seems a recipe for a flat battery, a bit like that under-seat light. That said, I did use the socket the other day.... I used it's negative wire as a solid earth line for my heated grips! The other end draw power from the ignition line, so they shut down when the bike is off. Handy when your bike can't be push-started! Smile

I like that 12v socket, it was very handy to plug my Optimate into and I used it for years. My Silver Wing was more or less permanently plugged into it while it was parked in my garage.

Last year I changed from a Yuasa battery to a Motobatt battery and Motorbatt charger. With the new set up I'm using battery leads, although if I come across a 12v plug in lead that mates with the Motobatt connectors I'll opt for that.

That 12v glovebox socket is ideally placed to power up my central mounted Garmin Zūmo sat nav, and unlike some maxi scooters I can close the glovebox lid while it's plugged in. I also prefer to plug my Keis heated jacket into the glovebox socket rather than use battery leads, because it's more conspicuous there when I get off the scooter.

Time bending, flux capacitors, and parallel universes have nothing to do with socks vanishing.
