Alarm Issues

QuestionI recently had to replace my battery in my 2002 Screaming Eagle Road King. Everything was fine after the R&R. I managed to get one ride in before having to store the bike for approximately 2 months. The siren started going off and fob will not disable it. In one instance I even disconnected the battery while the siren was going. It did not stop for about 30 seconds. I am not sure where the siren module is located to check the back up battery or if that is even the problem. I am hoping you can help.

Thank you

AnswerStart by replacing the battery in the key fob, and fully charge the m/c battery, you should be fine.

    My 2007 ultra classic alarm keeps coming on when I turn on the ignition. I have to deactivate using pin to start the bike. I changed the fob battery and disconnected, reconnected the bike’s battery.

    ‬ I have a 2009 ultra classic, one night on the way out when I turn the bike switch to start, the red key light continues to flash, indicating that the key fob wasn’t being recognized, I turned the switch on and off a few times and the light went off and I started the bike. Later that night I started the bike to come home and I had to do the same a couple of times and again it started. I got home parked it in the garage and the bike sat for a couple weeks, I spoke to a friend and he said it may be the fob battery, I changed the fob battery and went out to start the bike and this time the red key light stayed on when I turned the switch to start and the bike will not start, I took out the battery to charge it and when I tested it, I had 13+ volts and the battery was purchased in the Spring and kept on a tender. Has anyone had this problem? And can you help?
