New TPMS has replaceable battery...
« on: March 13, 2012, 11:38:38 pm »
I replaced a Tire pressure sensor in the front today. The part number has been superceded  and I was hoping Kawi had made improvements. It looks like the units now have replaceable batteries. Good..

The part number shown for a 2012 model is a 21176-0125, which I have a pair of in my '08 (warranty replacements); they do not have replaceable batteries. Further, the parts fiche does not show the sensor as being serviceable nor are there any parts (such as batteries) available for it. Is this the same part number you installed?

I know there is nothing on the fiche about the battery being renewable, but the housing/case looks to have a ear tab and notch. Looks like it could be opened. I did not try to open it. Maybe wishful thinkin? Anyway, I am glad they are covered under warranty for now...

I bought one (!) and cracked it open. You would have to desolder the battery to replace it.

The -0125 type are [disassemble able] but the battery is soldered in. Actually the tabs on the battery are soldered to the TPS itself. There is a Torx screw under the label that holds the two pieces of plastic together and once that is removed, the sensor halves will separate.

Unfortunately there is nothing driving LDL (the manufacturer) or Kawasaki to make the batteries serviceable. Both companies will sell some sensors just because most users will not change the battery. Just one of the downsides to mass marketing.

Are you saying KHI should replace the worn out front and rear air pressure sensor batteries free on my '08 with expired 3 year warranty, because the batteries are covered for 5 years not just 3?  Lew

That is what I heard. Have your dealer call Kawi and verify.

Sounds like the extended warranty will easily pay for its self in the price of a pair of replaced TPMS in that coverage period...no brainer then

Thread resurrection.   >:D 

 I've got a 2012 and my understanding is this year or there abouts is when Kawi made changes to the TPMS sensors?  I bought it new in 2/14, have a current extended warranty.  Even if the warranty would cover the TPMS/batteries, will replacements not be user serviceable (sealed beyond hope) and of a different design prohibiting me from ever putting new batteries in myself?  If so I'll do these myself and be done with it so long as my style allows me to get into it.

Am I correct in assuming that there is no need for a dealer reflash after new batteries are installed by me?

TIA

Battery replacement requires no dealer/KDS input.   :beerchug:

Have to ask again..
Has anyone discovered a way to change the batteries in the newer style units?
 (I seem to recall that someone finally figured it out)

Thanks to Pangman on the Australian GTR forum:

OK, the FINAL result is OUT, cut the rest of the BS. We all know about replacing the battery in the early model TPSM.
 Now here is the latest info from the horse's mouth. I have a flat battery in a TOTALLY sealed unit pic,1.With NOTHING to lose i decided to lash out and give it a go. Firstly u need to pick the s*** out of the soft material in the top of the TPMS, it's a s*** of a job and much care needs to be taken,pic 2, u will then see the battery, u then need to keep cutting and pulling all the s*** out, (this is a form of silastic or something like it) until






u make it nice and clean.pic 3.
 Now the battery in this unit is a CR2050HR, in battery terms that means, the first 2 # are the DIA and the second 2 # are the THICKNESS. So 20mm X .50mm, @ 3V. Also all 20mm batteries are 3V. the HR is HIGH TEMP, good but not really required in this case and 2050 are hard to get from yr local shop.
 So i replaced the 2050 with 2032 same diam just a little thinner, same volt's.See pic, because i dug all the s*** out i need to replace it something. I first put some race tape over the board then filled it with siliastic, also see pics.
 Job DONE. REFITTED in the wheel road down the street, s*** HOT ALL GOOD.



There's also this for BMW sensors, which look almost the same.

when I was researching the higher capacity 2050 battery a year ago, I did find them, and with "tabs" mounted, let me dig back and find my link for them...

I just needed to see the "carnage" photos, to see how badly/much picking had to be done to get down to the battery...( the old photos we had somewhere 2 years ago, were much more horrible looking in the attempts that person made, to get to the battery... pretty much looked like they used a chainsaw..)

I'll be back... :great:

I ordered my 2032 with tabs from ?concole5? for $1.09 a piece.  Got 2 shipped to the house in a box for less than Amazon wanted for one battery.

Are you saying the tire pressure sensors in your 11 year bike are under five years old? I don't know about the warranty on replaced sensors. I had Fred Harmon of:   http://www.angelridevideos.com/  replace my old sensor style batteries. (they work great by the way) I understand he can also do the new potted style of sensor. 

I also have to comment the front sensor died rather quickly in the front. The rear has actually hung on pretty good for a 10 year old C14.  The rear would read low battery until the tire warmed up. Then I would get a tire pressure reading. When the rear sensor went to Fred, it was still kicking.  Fred's turn around is pretty good too. I am just saying there might be an option available. I like the sensors as the rear tire sensor have warned of a pending flat twice and in time to get air to get home or get air to get me to a metric shop for a new tire.

If you had purchased the extended warranty and then the sensor batteries had failed, Mama Kaw would replace them under the warranty.

But once all od the warranties run out, original or extended, TPMS replacement is on you...

Soldered in new batteries today and got everything back together - test ride.  Only the rear sensor was picked back up.  Still no front.   Ideas?
