Battery Replaced, now FOB not recognized

I recently replaced my battery on my 2016 RG Special. After putting everything back together I started the bike to, well, make sure it starts. But it would not initially, it prompted me for my PIN to unlock the bike. This is still going on even after a successful ride yesterday. Is there a way to "reset" the alarm system to get the FOBs working or do I need to get it reprogrammed?

you shouldn't have to do either.

check the battery in your fob, are you still running the original? if so, could be coincidental that it went out the same time.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

These are original FOBs. But I will look into it. Maybe the other one is still good. Someone also suggested pulling the main fuse and resetting it. Just trying to avoid a $100 "fix" from the dealership.

I would be willing to bet the fob batteries are toast. Easy, cheap fix and would give you peace of mind even if that ISN'T the problem.

It is a good idea to keep a spare cr2032 battery in a saddle bag, tourpack or someplace on the bike in case the one in the FOB goes out.

I've seen it a dozen times, key fob just dies out on the road somewhere. I'll never ride without a spare CR 2032 battery in the saddlebag. Even if I don't need it someone I'm riding with will and who wants to deal with that on a ride. If that 2016 fob has the original battery in it I would bet the farm it's dead.

I had the same problem. Check the battery and see if the is paper on one side that needs to be removed.

I tried out the backup fob and it worked fine. Thank you for the suggestion. I replaced both batteries since I had them on hand. And wow, what a difference a new battery makes on the bike. Starts are "instant". :-)

I finally had to replace the fob batteries for my 2013 RGU this past September. I kept waiting for one to die, and they both lasted over six years. Luckily the fob failed as I was getting ready to leave the house. Oddly, they were both dead at the same time.

Thanks for the reminder... I gave my spares that I had taped to my TP lid, to a couple that the wifes fob was dead.
