    Keyless radio operated ride key

    My bike is a 2021 S1000R and recently I received this message on the screen, "Remote key battery
    weak. Limited central locking function. Change battery".
    I proceeded to change the "2032" battery and start the bike, outcome was the Keyless radio operated ride key did not function despite now having a  new 3v battery. The voltage read of old battery was 2.78v and of new battery 3.31v before installing it.  After installing I then tested to see whether Keyless radio operated ride key worked and it didn't. I then removed the new battery and checked it's voltage which had gone down to below 3v (2.98v).  Any ideas of what the issue is. Short?  Also the bike can be started using the emergency key (per p65 riders handbook) this I have done and it worked.

    Did you contact your dealer?
    I remember watching a video, about this subject. Damn if I can find it now
    But I think if you put the FOB against the radio unit, like the emergency key it'll reset

    Thanks for that.  It's solved now, yay!  What happened, I went for a shop ride and it bucketed down.  I had the key in my front pocket of a Rukka wet weather jacket and it got wet. I should have it in the phone pocket which is totally waterproof. I dried it out and overnight the moisture in the radio chip printed circuit board evaporated and it worked ok next morning.  Moral to the story is DON'T GET IT WET!

    Not a fan of keyless ignitions on bikes, the 2021 Speed Triple 1200 I had wouldnt function on more than one occasion.

    At least with the BM you have a key to open the fuel cap (which doesnt make it totally keyless really) , on the Triumph if it fails, you have unbolt the fuel filler cap with the allen key provided under the side panel to fill it up, and then screw it all back together..

    I had to replace my key battery a week after I got my bike. The bike was in the dealership for 3 month before I bought it so assumed it had been used a lot to show potential buyers the bike screen etc. Anyway I replaced it with one of those cheap ones you get on a card with about 20 other types of button battery’s you will never use. The battery lasted 1, 1 hour ride then the next week I went to start the bike and the low battery in fob sign was on. Moral of the story is fit good quality battery’s in your key. I use only Duracell now and also keep a spare one under passenger seat just in case. TBH not a big fan of the keyless system
