I followed the instructions as directed after you pointed out "what I wanted"! It was a snap to program. Today I didn't have to hassle with the remote dodat to switch off the immobiliser - what a pleasure.

Thanks a lot!

BToliver Thanks guys...... the 4th time was a charm! This has been the only problem I've had in the first 500 miles! I wish I had made this change years ago. I really can't believe the quality and workmanship.

I Have a 2006 Screamin Eagle Ultra Classic for sale, if anyone is interested...

+1 You have to press them slowly or it won't work. Figured that one out the hard way (my dealer had programed it to auto-arm - I don't like that).

Great pix, but N/A to the '06 -- all the programming is handled with the ignition switch and the fob buttons. That's why I like it more than the previous iterations.

Yep

I'm hoping that was because this procedure is not something they do frequently. It took me a few tries to figure out how to do it, but once you understand what's happening with the reprogramming feature it makes sense.

Tomakazie I have a 06 LT also.... It took 2 different BMW service departments to finally disable the fob so you do not have to hit the button each time you want to start the bike. This works much better. Bike starts with the key now and when I want to lock the bags and set the alarm I just hit the button.... My instructions were in the manuals on the bike. Good luck

I don't believe it does. Nothing is mentioned about having to ground a plug, in my manual.

My '05 came with 4 owner's manuals. Pages 21-25 in the "Supplementary Rider's Manual -- Anti-theft alarm system" describe the default settings of the system. The last entry on page 24 tells how to turn the immobilizer off. I hope he catches this before he dives into wiring; it can all be done via the key fob.

BToliver Thanks, Howard....

I'll read the manual again.... didn't find it the first time, sure glad to know that it can be done.

Welcome

Welcome to the LT world.

I found that info previously in one of the owner's manuals. Some settings have to be reprogrammed, via the key fob. I have turned mine off. Let me know if you don't find it and I'll dig out my manual for the page #.

Please take moment to provide some info about yourself and your location in your user profile. We'll be better able to help you that way.
