Are you sure that is the entire code, it should read like p0112 or u1012 or something like that. Almost all the codes that have a 12 in them refer to an open IAT sensor like the key got switched on while it was unplugged.

I used the method to retrieve the code that was outlined in my Ultra Manual. You turn the switch on off on off on and then use the fob and turn signal switch to get to diganostic mode. The lights flashed once paused then 2 flashes. I took this to be error code 12. My Ultra manual shows a 13 code but not a 12.

How are you getting the code you refer to?

The IM (instrument module) is capable of displaying DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes).

1- Ignition off
2- push odometer reset button in & hold. Make sure run switch is on.
3- turn ignition to run and release button (you will see P, S &C displayed)
4- each letter represents an area of diagnostics... the one that is flashing is the one you are going to check. To move from one letter to the next, you push the button one time. (from P to S to C and back to P, etc.)
5- to get DTC within an area, you push and hold the button in for 5 seconds and if there are any, it will be displayed... you can release the button. As you push the button again, other codes will appear if they are there. If there are not any the word 'none' appears.
6- Record the codes.
7- To determine if a code is current or historic, you clear the codes while being displayed by pushing in and holding the button until 'clear' comes up. Turn off the ignition... then crank or restart the bike... turn off, and then repeat the code process. If a code is there now, its current... if not, it was historic.

the flashing you seen was the alarming of the bike.
To see how to read a code look at this thread and follow the instructions.

I don't think is was the alarming of the bike as I was in the mode for setting options and thought I would try the method for reading codes that my Ultra uses. I was Some what flying blind as my Service Manuals will not be here until Thursday. From the other posts I should have been using the speedometer to retrieve the codes. Too late now as I have already cleared the code. Everything was/is working correctly and I probably caused the code while I was installing the set back handle bars, chrome switch housings, and detachable windshield. I had all the gauges and other things unplugged and turned on the switch. When I got everything back together and started the bike the alarm light came on for 8 seconds after it started. This indicates an historical code. I was just curious as to what was the cause of the code.

If you had the turn signals unplugged and turned the key on I'm sure you simply set a history code and you have nothing to worry about. The only way I know to retrieve codes on the V-Rod is with the method that I listed or the scanalyzer.
