Pre-ride check
The instrument panel runs a test of the 'General' warning light when the ignition is switched on:
this is the "Pre-Ride-Check. The test is aborted if you start the engine before it completes.
Phase 1
The "General" warning light shows red.
CHECK! appears on the display
Phase 2
The "General" warning light shows yellow.
CHECK! appears on the display.
If the 'General' warning light does not show:
Some malfunctions cannot be indicated if the 'General' warning light cannot be displayed.
Check that the 'General' warning light comes on, and that it shows red and yellow.

Please run nan Auto-Scan, all modules will be tested and would show their stored faults.

Thank you, having looked at your reply and the Riders Manual it is doing exactly what it is supposed, its a shame the local BMW dealer didn't know as they told me CHECK! indicated a fault and they would need to diagnose the problem.

Ran Auto-scan and showed up one fault which was low battery voltage which I was aware. Ran all tests and everything works perfectly.

Thank you for your reply I can relax and enjoy the bike now.
