I needed this fob tip two days ago, spent an hour installing hanny riser and couldn't wait to test it out only to find the bike wouldn't start, tried the spare key and same thing so didn't think it was they fob, went to Harley dealer and the service dude said change the fob battery man it that simple. That all it was, first change since 09.

Geez guys........
Solution is easy.
When Daylight Savings Time changes, it's BATTERY DAY!!!

Cars, Boats, Motorcycles, Riding mowers.........Check the "installed date" (don't forget the wife's car!)

Battery operated clocks, clocks with backup batteries, emergency flashlights, SMOKE ALARMS, "system battery" for your CPU, watches, etc.

Keep two lists, Fall and Spring, similar but separate.......A four year old car battery may live Spring through Summer, but do you want to trust the same battery in your wife's car through a brutal winter?

In anticipation of riding season I change the key fob battery ANNUALLY, remote alarm too (yes it may last two years but why worry how long it will last). Cheap insurance.

Arizona residents? Come on.....it's in the news for days ahead. You can do it, too!

Battery killer???


The amount of draw is so minute that even mentioning it as a battery killer shows how little jetboy knows mechanically. His mercedes if full of full time electronics.

I imagine it is left on as a theft deterrent, the bike will not start when engaged unless key fob is present. The 06 still has the original battery.

That's why I belong to this forum....trouble shootin' is a breeze with all these daily on-line VR-Pro's advice... Just use the above google search top left.....or Quick search top right. *To bad the search function won't find THREE LETTER WORDS like..."FOB" dammit.
Other then this forum....."Trial & error" and "riding & networking" with other v-rodder's has been a blessing to me since 2003.
