02 955i charging issue
8K miles I noticed it was turning over slow, took it in the told me the rectifier needed replacement. This was a week or so ago, on my way home from a trip speedo starts blinking then goes blank......I had heard this would happen if the battery was low luckily I was close to home and was able to make it.........
put bike on battery tender/charger charged all day around middle of the evening the light indicating the charger had charged the battery and was in tending mode. Called dealer have an appointment Saturday. This is my only transportation so I used the bike Wednesday then put back on the charger/tender.
started bike today and the engine light is now staying illuminated. rode to school at school now.
will need to ride home my question is can I ride the bike Friday then to the shop Saturday without hurting anything?
I am thinking the engine light is related to the charging problem but I don't know as the battery almost completely discharged without any light the first time.
I know this isn't much to go on, the bike runs fine. Temps are fine etc.
I have class now will try to give more details later.
......ps in class now I thought I should add I have also replaced the battery recently. if the battery is new the rectifier is new bike not charging and check engine light now on..........wut is wrong.........
