TPMS rear low voltage
« on: February 07, 2015, 06:15:43 am »
My 2013 SE had just over 17,000kms and is coming up with the above message  :084:.  My dealer says I have to replace the entire rear TPMS unit at a cost of over $200AUD.  I am disturbed that I can't simply replace the battery in the unit and that it has happened so quickly, especially as the front wheel also has one that I assume will go around the same time and other TPMS manufacturers are saying the life of their units is 5-10 years.

Has anybody else had experience with their tyre pressure monitoring system batteries?  As my local dealer hasn't got my trust re: their competency, I'm interested in any good advice  :148:.

Yes, I have had a "TPMS Low Battery" on BOTH tires already. I have one for the rear right now.

But I have noticed the TPMS is still accurate when having the message. I think it alarms at too high of a battery voltage  as it seems the message can be ignored for months.

My "front tyre low battery" message came on before my 500 mile service. My rear tire just started to give the low battery warning, but it's about time to change that tire anyway.

I also have the same issue, but this will be replaced under warranty when I have my 10k service. As I and other have previously mention if it's not effecting the safety of the bike them cancel the warning by pressing "I" button. Alternatively if you don't want to pay that amount. Wait until the tyre needs replacing and have it removed and replace it with a standard valve.

I take it that your 2013 is out of warranty so this won't be replaced by the dealer?

There's been quite a bit of discussion on this topic. For me over the last year when it's cold I get a low a battery warning. Seems it's temperature related. Same with gremlins in the TES and Windscreen when its cold. Doesn't stop me riding and I guess part of the British build.

I've had the rear only for the last 5k miles. The dealer I went to when getting another issue sorted told me he would change them under warranty when it goes in for 10k service and tyre replacement.

I think someone has posted pictures of cutting the TPMS sensor apart and replacing the battery, but I can't find it.  Maybe Coconut can help and add it to the "How To" board.

If you replace the sensors I would keep the old sensors and replace the battery for spares when needed.  Be sure that the old sensors are tagged/marked with the serial numbers so they can be used again.  If you loose the S/N's there is no way to reprogram the dash for the old sensors.  Also, when resealing the sensors be sure to use an electrical grade silicone, the hardware store variety is corrosive to electronics.

Cheers,
Ken

If someone wants to provide an old sensor, a Spare Trophy,
and pay for a Dealer to test it afterwards then I'll gladly have a play with it ...
No guarantees though !  :164:

When my batteries finally go I was going to have a go at pulling it apart and see if I could replace the battery myself but if someone else beats me too it I will read their results with interest
