Keyless entry problem

Hello all ,new to these forums. I have a 2005 K1200 LT that I got late 04. I love the bike and have had no problems the last 18 months. This Saturday I was visiting someone in the high desert in San Bernardino county California.When I got ready to leave the bike was just dead,no power. The keyless entry was on but obviously disabled. To my shock I found out the ignition key would not override the keyless system and I was unable to get into the left compartment and the remote seat switch. I called the dealer in Pomona,Ca..Brown BMW and the service department told me that this was a new 05 feature. Feature? This has to be a flaw. They said the only fix was to use the BMW accessory jack and reverse feed a charge to the battery. After an hour back and forth with Good Sam Road service... the battery finally puked up enough power to pop the keyless entry. Does anyone have any info on this problem?

There is a way to get into the bike by slipping a small devise into the lock when all else fails. Ask your service dealer to show you how it is done. Other LT owners who are more knowledgable in describing this method may be able to tell you also.

Cheers, Bill

The key will work - turn it only 45 degrees not the full 90.

Thanks, I wish the salesman had pointed that out and more importantly that the service tech that I spoke with at the dealership really should have known this. Ride Safe. Thanks again,Tony

Tony this info is in your alarm manual. Did they give you the manual?

Ride On!

Yes, but the manual was at the house and no one home, I was two hours away. I had never thought to test the key locks vs the keyless entry and this was the first time it had been an issue. Thanks for the replies.

With a dead battery make sure you either turn the radio and such off or you have to turn the key to lock,,,, Just turning the key to kill motor will let acces. like radio stay on and drain battery.........Regards Pete

Of course, you could've read the manual ahead of time, just to know how it all works in case something happened down the road.

And if you turn the key to Lock, just don't turn it too far to Park or you'll drain the battery faster.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Keyless entry

A word of Thanks for this Instruction.

I got a call from my BMW bike buddies from the 2011 BMWMOA rally. One of the guys had mistakenly put his Key Fob & Keys in the trunk of the bike, shortly after walking away from the bike the auto lock timer engaged the locks. (Great Security Feature 2005 K1200lt) When he came back to his bike, the trunk was lock. The spare key allowed him to drive back to the camp site, but his Smart Phone and wallet, you know all the important stuff you take with you was in the locked trunk.
No spare key fob, and the none of the vendors at the rally had a clue how to unlock the trunk without the key fob.

After finding these instructions, I call the guys at the rally and instructed them on what to do. Not 5 mins later I got a call, It Worked.

Again Thanks

For those not aware ... you can disable the automatic features like this. There's also a specific code you can enter via the ignition and watching the lights flash to disable the alarm. It's all in the manual.

Re: Keyless entry

I don't remember reading about the auto timed locking feature in my '05 manual, I'll have the look again. I keep my spare fob in my right side case, tied to the coiled up CD stacker wiring, then I have a spare key wired in position on the bike, there's plenty of places which can be used. This way I have most problems covered I think. I have disabled the immobiliser but kept the motion sensor function, so to start the bike I just turn the key. Simple is best in my book. Lock the steering and set the motion detector, anyone wanting to steal a K12 would have to be really serious.
