Battery Removal
« on: June 18, 2014, 06:55:51 am »
Hi Guys,

Can you advise if there are any issues when disconnecting the battery.  I have a Triumph Alarm on the bike so I guess I disarm the system, as if I were starting the bike, and remove the terminals before the bike arms itself again.

When I reconnect does everything just work as normal again.

I did search for an answer to this but could not see one.

Later

Hi GarminDave,

There are no special warnings or procedures listed in the Service Manual
for Battery disconnection and reconnection, other than removing the Negative terminal first,
and the usual "Don't short it out on the frame", "Contains harmful chemicals" etc.  :112:

Once you've sorted out the alarm ( see below ), I would advise that you turn the Ignition off and
leave it off for a couple of minutes, just to make sure everything has shut down electronically.
( I really don't know if you "need"  to do this - it just seems to be a good idea to me ! ).

As for the alarm - It is probably the Triumph / Datatool S4 alarm you have fitted.

The instructions for this alarm advise that if the motorcycle battery is disconnected while the
alarm is set, then the alarm system's internal back up battery will cause the alarm to activate :

You can remove the {motorcycle} battery at any time
when the system is ‘immobilised only’ or in ‘winter mode’.
Winter mode also stops the remotes operating the
system making this setting better.
If the alarm system has been armed, the internal
battery back-up system (S4 Red and Green only) is
also turned on and disconnection of the battery will
cause the alarm system to sound.
If you have changed the standard default setting of
the alarm to full passive arming the easiest way to
remove the machine’s battery is to select ‘winter
mode’ prior to removal of the battery.

Entering ‘Winter’ mode :
From the disarmed state, press both buttons on the
transmitter for 10 seconds with the ignition ON until
you hear a beep, after the ignition is switched OFF the
alarm unit will go into winter sleep mode. The unit will
now be completely shut down leaving the machine
immobilised and current usage below 250μA.

Exiting ‘Winter’ mode :
To re-activate the alarm system the ignition has to
be switched ON and the alarm will give a series of
increasing rate beeps which last for 5 seconds.
Within this time press the GREY button on the
remote control or the alarm system will trigger.

More details are included in the Datatool Instructions - I will email a copy to you shortly  :028:

Cheers,
