2008 GL1800 ABS light flashing

HI
Can anyone tell me what four (4) flashes on the ABS fault light means.
Followed the info to retrieve the code but don't know what it means or where to start looking to repair fault
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks

Code 4 is a fault in the front control motor system. It could be:

- Bad front modulator control motor fuse
- Bad front motor
- Bad or malfunctioning front crank angle sensor
- Bad wire harness or connector
- Bad ABS control module

First thing you want to check is the fuse:

Fuse 5
Fuse 5


Have you first cleared the codes and seen if it comes back? It might be intermittent.

Thanks
Got to checking it out last night, It may have been dirt in one or more of the connectors. I had read in another forum that if you switch all the wiring on the modulators and come up with a code "5" then that would make sure it was the front modulator to fault But I could not stretch the harness from the rear modulator to fit the front one. So I blasted the connectors with contact cleaner and reinstalled them and all was fine. DIRT don't you just love it!

Thanks again WingAdmin.
