2009 C14 TPMS sensor battery low warning
« on: June 07, 2019, 02:18:39 am »
Is there any way to disable the warning message short of actually replacing the batteries?  That's a ton of work, but I'm tired of the warning.

If you call removing both sensors and disconnecting the bike's battery while doing so a ton of work, then - no.

Or you can wait until both batteries no longer cause the display info to appear then disconnect the bike's battery for some minutes, reconnect, and the TPMS system will become dormant (no longer appear on display) until new batteries are fitted to the sensors.

As stated in the other thread, pressing the buttons in the correct sequence will remove the warning.

The smart thing to do is replace the batteries.

Sheesh, I've tried this numerous times while stopped, bike in neutral, etc., I still see the warning msg on my dash. Quirky. Oh well ..., minor annoyance.

Not to be a douche, but if it’s not working, you’re doing something wrong. Every dash for each generation of C14 is programmed identically to each other. All the 08-09 are the same, all the ‘10+ are the same. It doesn’t just not work.

It seems to me there is a bit of a timing trick to it. It took me a few dozen tries to get where I can do it first try almost every time now.

those button contacts, over time, oxidize a bit, and unless "exercised" yearly, by flipping thru functions, they don't always "respond" to first attempts when expected to... pressing them repeatedly, and rubbing them when depressed, seems to 'clean them" and make them work again...

Thanks MOB for the tip; hopefully that will do the trick for me ...
