    TPMS red light warning

    Firstly the scenario .. . rear low battery warning flashed up (maybe two or three times) a month or two ago. I took the bike in for an annual service last week. Told there was no issues however would need a new rear tyre soon. While in the dealership I ordered a set of Metzelers, had them fitted but completely forgot about the rear low battery warning. Now I find the red warning is on solid after about 10 minutes riding and no pressure reading on the rear but thankfully still 42psi in the tyre. Front no problem and shows the correct pressure on the dash. Rather than remove the rear tyre and replace the battery (dealer 300kms away) I was hoping to go manual until my next service is due and just check pressures prior to riding as I have done for every bike prior to my TTSE.
    Has a member discovered a simple push a few buttons in a specific sequence to extinguish the solid red warning on the dash? I am not skilled enough to attempt anything electrical and my basic maintenance skills extends as far as a piece of black tape over the red light.

    Pressing the "i" button should remove the text message on the Instrument Panel
    such as "Rear Tire Low", but I I think  the Red Light will remain.

    Without visiting a Dealer, the TPMS system can be turned off,
    by using an After Market device such as DealerTool or TigerTool.

    The "DealerTool" deviceis sold from the UK, ( they ship Internationally )
    and comes with the required interface cable and software
    to connect your Windows PC to the Trophy Diagnostics Connector,
    which is usually found clipped to the top of the main battery.

    Alternatively, if you have a compatible Interface cable,
    ( See the below Topic for more information ), the "TigerTool"
    software is free - and is available from within the Forum :

    How To Use TigerTool V3.1 Service Utility Software

    The Interface cable that comes with DealerTool is also compatible with TigerTool.

    If you are going to be performing any sort of Maintenance yourself,
    then "DealerTool" and/or "TigerTool" come highly recommended  :169:

    Many thanks Coconut for your reply. Indeed both of these service tools will be very handy for those with some mechanical aptitude however in my case I will eat humble pie and arrange for my dealer to procure and fit a pair of fresh batteries. Riding the TTSE is always a pleasure therefore the 300kms is of no consequence and for peace of mind is my best and safest option.

    Thanks again

    Make sure you get a price for as far as I know they don't replace batteries instead they will replace the whole TPMS sensor $$$$
    They can also just turn off the red warning light for a minimal fee.

    A lot of mechanics don't even want to hear about having to replace TPMS sensor batteries as it's a tin and soldering job to remove the old batteries and put in the new ones.
    The official workshops go to the practical, that is to say (new sensor) that they are not cheap at all, when a pair of batteries will cost less than 5 euros.

    The ideal is to buy a TPMS sensor on eBay, even if it is used, replace your battery yourself and when you change the tire, give it to the mechanic to replace it and you will always have a spare.

    I actually have 2 and a half spare sets.  I don't have a problem installiing new batteries in one of the spares just before a tire change, so I always have fresh sensors at every tire change and can reprogram the serial numbers via Tigertool if the dealer wants an excessive amount to do the 5 minute process.
