Security/Turn signal issues

I have a 2002 FLHT with security system. When the ignition is put in the "on" position, both turn signals flash several times, and the security light stays on. I can put on the four way flashers on, and the security light will stay off until I activate the left turn signal. No problem with the right signal. Occasionally the left signals will blink real fast.

This happened once before, last summer, but went away on its own. I should note that I have a Kuryakin LED tail light and turn signals. The LED's have been on the bike for several years without incident. I took off the seat and bypassed the LED harness, but there is no change. Any thoughts? Thanks!!

YES ... if the turn signals all flash several times after turning on the ignition the ECM has a stored code for the TSSM system . Use the trip meter button to read the codes . There's a " sticky " here that explains the procedure .

I got the diagnostic codes, it is showing the left and right turn signals have a problem, and a side note says this could also be a failure of the TS/SM module. Since I don't have one of those laying around, I think I will let the dealer play with it. I am going to be using Barb's H/D in Collingswood, NJ for the first time. Does anyone have any experience with them? Or another dealer in that area? Previous services and repairs were done in either North Jersey of Florida. Thanks again for your assistance to those who answered me.
