The battery ran down in my key fob.. I replaced the battery and now it doesn't work. Here's what happens. When I insert the battery into the fob I get two blasts of the horn and the blinkers flash a couple of times. A little red LED on the fob lights for 10 or 15 seconds. None of the buttons do anything on the fob.

I tried reprogramming the fob with the "key on-press button-key off" sequence several times but nothing.

One more thing... When you press a button on the fob should the red LED light up? Mine doesn't other than when initially inserting the battery as above.


Any suggestions?

Thanks very much.

I had similar trouble with a new key fob and I disconnected the battery, reconnected, went through the programming sequence following it to the letter and it worked.

It's not the bike, the red led should light when you push the buttons. Battery backward? Corrosion inside the fob?

I allways have to repeat the programming sequence many times to get it to work. this happens to me not only on the Goldwing but on various other vehicles. Don't know why.

I jst replaced the battery in my fob for the first time. No problem, and did not need to reprogram.

Did you put the battery under the 2 little tabs that hold it in place???

This is from the service manual:

TRANSMITTER REGISTRATION
• The codes of up to three transmitters can be registered
into the trunk lock control unit memory.
(If a fourth code is stored, the code which was
registered first will be erased.)
• Make sure to keep the timing between 1 and
4 seconds for each action. Too fast or too slow
will cause the control unit to lose the stored
codes.
1. Turn the ignition switch to “ON.” Between 1 and
4 seconds, press the trunk opener button on the
transmitter while aiming transmitter at the trunk.
Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition
switch to “OFF.”
2. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition
switch back to “ON.” Between 1 and 4 seconds,
press the trunk opener button on the transmitter
while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Between 1
and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch to “OFF.”
3. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition
switch back to “ON.” Between 1 and 4 seconds,
press the trunk opener button on the transmitter
while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Between 1
and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch to “OFF.”
4. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition
switch back to “ON.” Between 1 and 4 seconds,
press the trunk opener button on the transmitter
while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Confirm
that the turn signal lights blink twice. Leave the
ignition switch “ON.”
5. Within 10 seconds, aim the transmitters (up to
three) that you want to store codes in at the trunk
and press the trunk opener button once on each
transmitter. Confirm that the turn signal lights
blink twice. Turn the ignition switch to “OFF.”
