Have been trying since I got my 2001 LT over 3 yrs ago to disable the alarm system to Mode "B", but haven't been able to go any farther than the first several steps in the process. I basicly gave up on it for a while and have been resolved to have to deal with it the way that it was.

I happened to take the bike to the shop to get some 24K service work done on it and I mentioned that I would like to have the alarm deactivated, but haven't been able to. He said that he would take a look at it see what he could do. He called me up a couple of days later to tell me that he was only getting as far as I had been getting in the process and asked if I had ever changed the battery in the FOB. I told him that I hadn't done that, but it couldn't hurt to change it and see what that would do. As it turned out, that was all that was needed for the alarm system to respond to the FOB for the commands to change the programing on it!

I have searched the threads on here in the past for any hints to help me get this done, but have never run across this tidbit of information. I want to make sure this info was passed around to help anyone else that may be having any issues with your alarm system. Try changing the battery in the FOB before you get too frustrated as I did!!!
