Fun with TPMS
« on: June 12, 2019, 09:08:14 pm »
Just had my rear tire sensor replaced under the extended warranty by a local dealer.

On the way home the previous low battery warning light was gone.

But no reading from the rear at all - just 3 dashes ---

Looks like another trip to the dealer.

Any opinions on this - not programmed correctly?

Front sensor works normally as before.

Is this a dealer procedure or can it be done by owner?

Thanks

Dealer must use KDS to register it to bike using the ID number that came with the new sensor.  If you/he doesn't have the number the tyre will have to be removed to read it from the sticker on the sensor.

The dealer that did the install UNDER Warranty, should be well aware of the whole process... and no, you can't do it yourself, did you get the number off the bag the sensor came in, or the paper tag with the number on it? If not, ...well... return trip to dealer, peel off tire... write the code number from the sensor on paper, re install tire... and then they program the bike to see it... wow... that is a real sorry feeling man.
