There are a number of TSSM settings that a rider has the option of setting different modes, or preferences. In this video clip, Bob demonstrates how to set your preference for the Harley alarm sensitivity.
There are four Harley alarm sensitivity settings:
Extremely Low, Low, Medium, or High.
The selection picked controls the sensitivity of the security system in regards to motion detection. The rider should choose the setting that best suits where the motorcycle is most frequently parked or stored.
For example: if the motorcycle is to be parked in an industrial area or near a busy street, it may be best to set the Harley alarm sensitivity to a lower setting to avoid annoying false alarms. The setting can be changed as many times and as often as desired.
Harley owners should also be aware of Auto-Arming Function and Storage Mode. Auto-Arming causes the system to automatically arm itself (no key FOB present) within 30 seconds after the ignition key is turned off. During this period, the security lamp stays on solid to indicate Auto-Arming is starting up. Motorcycles sold in North America have Auto-Arming disabled by default. However, the feature may be enabled if the owner desires.
Storage Mode is a special mode used for long term storage. This mode prevents the security system from draining the battery after a prolonged period of days (typically more than 30 days)without any activity.
Take the time to learn about your Harley Davidson. Whether by using your manual, reading online information, or directly talking to somebody at the dealership. There are changes you can make to your settings that you may not know existed.
