TPS Sensor - Dash Reset?
« on: May 21, 2019, 05:23:39 pm »
I have a brand new tire on the rear and really do not want to remove the tire to service the TPS Sensor.

Is there a way to reset the dash so that it is functioning. At this time all I get is the Rear TPS Sensor Low Battery and the dash is useless. I do understand that in time it will fail completely and then I will get my dash back at that time but I really do not want to wait till then.

I don't think there is a "reset" you just have to wait for the battery to die.

Or just replace the sensor and get it over with.

Wait til the battery dies completely

Push the top and bottom buttons on the dash simultaneously and it will allow full use of the dash.

If you have extended your warranty on the bike the Sensors are covered.  The Battery is not that hard to change once you have the sensor in your hand.

I've tried that and every combination thereof and the dash display is still captured. Maybe it doesn't work on my '13...dunno

Read the owner's manual - press & hold the top button in then immediately press the lower button.

Unless I'm missing something I don't see it in the manual for my '09.  I'm on page 60  but nothing about resetting.  What page?

There's nothing in there about 'resetting' just how to clear the dash each time the low batt info shows up.

I have a 2012 and this works. I had a lot of trouble getting it to work the first few times. I don’t think it matters how long you hold the top button, but it must be held down before, during, and after without releasing when you tap the bottom button. Red light on dash and full use of display.
I SERIOUSLY had trouble getting it right at first while riding.
Same procedure to get dash display back in “low fuel warning” mode.

O/manual also says: do not play with your buttons while motorcycle is in motion.   ;D
