2015 RGS Security

Hi all.
I recently purchased a 2015 Road Glide Special. For some reason the security system is not arming. It hasn't since I bought it.
I bought it from a car dealer that took it in on trade so I can not ask the original owner about it.

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

How do you try to arm it? I have a 17 rgs and my security system is just on I would say. If the fob is not by it the bike will not start. Have you tried leaving the fob in the house and then try turning ignition on? If working nothing should happen, only the odometer should pop up wanting the code bypass. Which brings up a couple things. 1. If it allows u to start, there may be a second fob in a saddlebag or in the glove compartments. 2. You need to youtube how to find the code if it has been changed. 3. Change the code so it is one you know.
Usually if the ignition is off an you push the bike there is a red light that flashes on the speedometer. Even sitting I think it may flash. I hope this helps.

15's should self arm, as mine does. Just throwing this out, you might want to see if the previous owner unhooked/disconnected the alarm

Most likely it’s “silent alarm” is on, no alarm speaker is installed

My old bike was a 15 rgs, I agree with this post. The alarm siren was an option not standard.

Does the turn signals flash when the bike was turned off and you walk away from bike? I read as the security was not engaging, as anybody could walk up to the bike and start it.
As has been mentioned, the siren does not come standard. You have to add one, as I did to my 08, which became a PITA. It seems like I was always moving the bike in the garage and would set it off.....ofcourse the key fob was in the house. LOL

If the previous owner did not assign a PIN or fobs, the security is disabled. With it disabled, you would not need a fob to start the bike. The only way to check for a PIN and to make sure the fobs you have are assigned is to go to your local dealership and have them hook up their Digital Tech laptop.

This is one of the best, cheapest mod you can do on your 2015 RGS

I added two sirens on mine 3 years ago and it’s still working great

When I walk away the lights do not flash and there is no security flashing on the dash. I tried leaving the fob in he house and still no change.
As a mater of fact what made me think of it was I rode the bike to the dealer to look at windshields. When leaving I realized I had left the key at home and thought I was screwed. The bike started no problems.

I was thinking that maybe the last owner had set code to enable it but I have not found away for that to be done.
Or maybe he did unhook the alarm. I will try and find the alarm and check that.

Upon thinking about it last night I am thinking, as some of you have suggested, that there is another fob tucked up somewhere. I only received one with the bike. So I'm hoping that is the answer and I can find it.

Anyone have a fob sniffing dog I could borrow?

There is no way to unhook the alarm. It is integrated into the BCM. Yes you can add a siren but that is an option, not standard. There is no fob tucked somewhere in the bike because if there was, the lights would still flash at ignition off and you would still see the red lightning blinking in your instrument cluster.

Receiving only 1 fob with a used bike is not uncommon. At the dealership where I work, we get that a lot with trade-ins.
