How do I reset the alarm on a 2001 Suzuki Bandit after replacing the main battery on the bike ?

The main battery went flat and cannot be recharged, this affected the alarm/ isolation system on the bike. I'm going to replace the main battery but need to know how to reset the alarm system as the bike wont start otherwise.

How do you reset the factory ignition security system after it has been tripped?

The alarm will reset automatically or you can turn it off with the fob. If you cannot turn it off using the fob, then maybe the fob battery is flat. Replace it with a CR2032 and try again. If the alarm keeps ringing no matter what, then you may have a faulty TSSM module. All Harleys will reset the alarm if bike is turned off and left alone. By the way, have you removed the bike battery? If you have and did not disconnect it correctly (turn off alarm using fob, turn ignition on, disconnect battery) then the alarm siren will sound until its own backup battery goes flat. If this is the case, turn on ignition switch before fitting the battery.

Siren works, but no power to instrument after recharging battery. Nothing changed on the bike, was just sitting all winter.

There should be a small fuse box near the battery with probably three fuses inside. Have you checked those?

When the alarm sounds, turn the key to the RUN (NOT START) position, then OFF - do this 10 times rapidly.
Many alarms will turn off and allow the car to start with this method.

2008 electra glide battery draw, test light pulses, now bike wont crank over

The pulsing could be the alarm module. When bike is turned of, you will get small draw for a minute or so and then it should go very low, below a miliamp or so. This is the alarm module setting itself. Check for this. Is battery gone flat while checks were being made? Make sure ignition switch is on when disconnecting battery if alarm (Stock HD) is fitted. If not, alarm module gets confused and can cause problems. The corrct procedure for disconnecting a battery from an alarm fitted HS is - alarm off, ignition switch on, pull main fuse (Maxi Fuse), disconnect battery. To fit, ignition stitch off, connect battery then install main fuse.

Hi, The battery has suddenly drained on my 1999 T Reg Mercedes C Class Estate. Yesterday the horn suddenly sounded for no reason and would not stop....then it stopped on it's own. This morning, no power in...

According to the Mercedes forum, you are not alone, the alarm system goes off at random, it has something to do with the tow button, disabling the horn doesn't stop the alarm and the lights keep flashing. But the horn is quieted. I would trash the alarm system, or pay the dealer to mess with it, which is usually an expensive joke. You have insurance on the car, let them steal it. I stopped worrying about my bike, I leave the key in it. Nobody touches it. Before I couldn't leave site of it. Now, I don't care. Let them have it, I'll get a new one, Anyway, check out mercedes forum.

Flat battery 2008 sportster 1200noon 8,000k

are you sure that the battery is flat and the alarm has not gone into spleep mode this will give the impression that the batt is flat when you try to disarm the bike , turn ignition on and off to wake up alarm, press fob button twice then turn ignition on. if you do have a flat battery use a battery charger or jump start with a car . if alarm was armed before battery went flat then it will go off as soon as power is restored.

Car won't start. Replaced battery. worked 3 days. They said it was the alternator. REplaced with new. worked another 4 days. had it check with advance auto said battery good, starter cranking normal....

if there is no charging then its back to the alternator or the way its hooked up? did you recharge your flat battery with a mains charger after it went flat the first time? as no alternator will charge a battery from flat to fully charged,,,,even if you drove around the world none stop! the new alternator may have given up working becouse you overloaded the voltage regulator trying to recharge a flat battery witch would mean it was very week to start with?

The speaker polarity has nothing to do with the alarm system so don't worry about that.Usually when your battery is dying it causes your cars electrical system to do strange things like setting off the alarm, turning on the driving lights,ect. Reset the alarm system ONLY after you have had the battery fully charged so it will retain your settings.
