Key Fob Battery Change

Postby Joe Ewing » Fri Jul 01, 2011 2:04 pm



I am due to change the battery in my 2006 GL1800 key fob.

In the event that I lose programming during the battery switch, does anyone know the process for pairing the remote back to my bike?

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean "due to change"? :?:
My 2001 remote is still working without a battery change.
The re-programming steps are in the shop manual, and I have seen them posted on the GL1800riders.com board.

Here you go:

TRANSMITTER REGISTRATION

• The codes of up to three transmitters can be registered into the trunk lock control unit memory. (If a fourth code is stored, the code which was registered first will be erased.)

• Make sure to keep the timing between 1 and 4 seconds for each action. Too fast or too slow will cause the control unit to lose the stored codes.

1. Turn the ignition switch to ON. Between 1 and 4 seconds, press the trunk opener button on the transmitter while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch to OFF.

2. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch back to ON. Between 1 and 4 seconds, press the trunk opener button on the transmitter while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch to OFF.

3. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch back to ON. Between 1 and 4 seconds, press the trunk opener button on the transmitter while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch to OFF.

4. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch back to ON. Between 1 and 4 seconds, press the trunk opener button on the transmitter while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Confirm that the turn signal lights blink twice. Leave the ignition switch ON.

5. Within 10 seconds, aim the transmitters (up to three) that you want to store codes in at the trunk and press the trunk opener button once on each transmitter. Confirm that the turn signal lights blink twice. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.

6. Confirm proper operation of each transmitter with the new codes.

Thank you for the transmitter registration sequence. It works perfectly.

Changing the battery in the fob should not affect the programming. The fob has a pre-set frequency. The unit in the bike is what accepts that freq. When you use the programming sequence, the bike is LEARNING the new fob.

I had a fob that was not working and I thought it was the battery. However when I pressed the buttons (after replacing the battery) the led on the fob did not light. So I purchased a fob on eBay and used the above programming method and now I'm a happy biker. :D
