Harley guys with a key fob, 07+ models

Hey just an FYI, if you have the HFTSM, hands free turn signal module, and the factory security system, replace the battery in the key fob.

I went out tried to crank my scooter, and nothing, I keep it on the trickle charger in the shop, battery is good.

I racked my brain for over an hour, pulled the seat, checked the battery, all the cables, all the connections. everything was good.

I did a little re-search dug up the relay diagrams, did some more checking with a meter and son of a female canine.

A 3.99 battery was all that kept me from riding this weekend.

If you have a Harley with the little back hockey puck looking thing, make sure, you replace the battery at least every year. If the battery dies, you cannot do squat with your scooter, except sit on it and make motorcycle noises.

You can get around this by taking the bike to the dealer and having them put it into dealer service mode, but you must immediately remove the battery on the fob, once the powered fob gets close tot he bike, it automatically goes back to normal mode.

If you really don't want the hassel, you can change out the hands free turn signal module, and replace it with a standard turn signal module, but now you have to program it, which is a pain in the as well.

Did you buy the bike used or brand new?

Either way, next time you go to any Harley dealer have them flash your fob and enter the 5 digit ignition override code. In the event of you losing your fob or the battery running out on it you can enter that code via your turn signals by turning ignition on holding both turn signals down until 5 dashes appear, then using your left turn signal you cycle through the numbers and enter it with the right turn signal. Repeat for the following numbers and you can start your bike without the need of a key fob. By the way, that is a free service, they HAVE to give you that override code for safety purposes.

You can bypass the FOB if the battery is dead.
You can also program your own pin without taking it to the dealer.


How to set your security alarm pin:

Button less fobs (Smart FOB)

1. Select 5 digit code (each digit being a 1 thru 9) and record it on the wallet card in the owners manual.

2. With an assigned FOB present, turn IGN key ON - OFF - ON - OFF - ON

3. Press Left turn signal switch 3 times.

4. Press Right turn signal switch one time and release.
*Turn signals will flash 3 times. Current PIN will appear in the odometer. The first digit will be flashing.

5. Enter first digit (a) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal (a) times.

6. Press right turn signal 1 time and release.
*The new digit (a) will replace the current in the odometer window.

7. Enter second digit (b) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal switch (b) times.

8. Press right turn signal 1 time and release.
*The new digit will replace the current in odometer window.

9. Enter the third digit (c) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal (c) times.

10. Press the right turn switch 1 time and release.
*The new digit (c) will replace the current in the odometer window.

11. Enter forth digit (d) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal switch (d) times.

13. Enter the fifth digit (e) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal (e) times.

14. Press the right turn switch 1 time and release.

15. Before the module rearms, turn ignition key to OFF.
* The odometer will return to mileage display.
**Turning the ignition to OFF stores the new pin in the module.
