Tire Pressure sensor batteries
« on: April 21, 2016, 01:10:30 am »
I have been off my bike for a few months due to a couple Broken Vertebrae over the winter. Now when I pulled it out for spring I notice it needs some dealer attention. I am getting low battery messages for both front and rear TPMS systems and The spare key that I do not use is not programmed. The 2 yr warranty started Last September so I assume a dealer can handle this for me. My problem is the only 2 dealers near me are 70 miles and 100 miles away. I will have to give them a call to see who can program the key for me.

I am having similar issue on the TPMS front tire indicating low battery (had the rear tire TPMS replaced last year because battery on the sensor went dead).  My 2013 TTSE is currently in shop for its yearly maintenance.  Service manager calls me yesterday and tells me that I may have other issues in my electrical system at play.  He tells me that the battery drained dry and the bike has been there only a week.  Even with the bike turned off something is drawing power from the battery.  I never really noticed this since I keep the bike always on a trickle charger. I surely hope my Triumph service department finds the culprit.

I replied to your other post about the Battery Drain problem here :

You sure did, Coconut.  I usually pull out the 10 amp fuse but I put it back in to show my dealer what was going on.  But I have kept the 10 amp plugged in at times when using the trickle charger.  I just hope the dealer can get this issue resolved once and for all.  The dealer tells me there has been nothing mentioned in the Tech Service updates about this issue.  So they say.

On the tire pressure sensor batteries, if the bike is still in warranty I would ride it as long as the monitors still display if I could make it to tire change time.  Since the dealer has to at least partially unmount the tire under warranty for the sensor replacement you may get a break on the mount and balance of new tires if they need replacement.  Be sure you mention to your dealer more than once about the sensors low battery warning long before it is out of warranty.

Thanks Trophied. I put a brand new rear tire on less than 500 miles ago. I will take a look at the tread on the front. It may be a good time to put a new front tire on.

Are the TPS batteries replaceable?

Previously discussed extensively in the Forum, including here :
Tyre Pressure sensor battery replacement.

If you ask Triumph the answer is NO.

If you ask in here the answer is a qualified Yes or Maybe / and with some fiddling and soldering !

I would suggest anyone with failing TPMS batteries contacts their Dealer
and asks them to raise a Case with Triumph to see if they will replace them.

Definitely if still under warranty, but also if the warranty has expired,
as it would appear that the device may have had an upgrade to make the batteries last longer.

Triumph have replaced several TPMS sensors ( in and out of warranty ),
where the batteries have failed after a relatively short time.
