I took my 2018 DCT into the Honda dealer today to get new tires installed. The dealership is just off the freeway. Got on the bike got on the freeway and the bike would not shift into second gear. Stopped on the shoulder. Turned the bike on and off. Checked settings. No change. Next off ramp nine miles. Not fun. Got home. Disconnected the battery ran clutch initialization procedure still no change. The check engine light is on the Tpms light is on and won’t shift out of first gear. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Hope I can fix it without towing it back to dealer. Thanks

Take back to dealer who screwed it up. Have them pick up. Sounds like they screwed it up

Happy ending Hulkss was correct. TPMS sensor was bumped when they changed the tire. Dealer sent tech to my house. Adjusted sensor cleared all the check lights ran clutch initialization procedure. Everything seems back to normal. Thanks for the responses.

I had similar indications once from accidentally allowing the battery drain completely. It took riding a while after jump start to recharge the batt and then half a dozen starts and shutdowns. Each time the bike was shutdown completely (including electrical) a symptom disappeared. Last one to disappear was the check engine light.
Kudos to your dealer. The main Honda dealer in my town is AWFUL.

EddieM, are ya sure it was not the ABS sensor the tech adjusted on site. A damaged TPMS sensor would need the tire demounted to replace. Come to think of it, not evensure what adjustments are available to the ABS ring.
