    Electrical problem.
    « on: 2021-05-01 16:43:24 »
    I have a 2015 registered R1200 RT LC LE
    The problem I have is that the central locking has stopped working of the button on the handlebars. and also the alarm system is not working. it seems a coincident that they have both stopped.
    I am wondering if a fuse has blown? but do Can-bus system bikes have a fuse box and if so where the hell is it.All suggestions welcome.(well clean useful ones)

    Cheers Steve

          Alarm system has a C123 battery, located aft of rear seat, not exactly sure what it does, (backup or primary) if it’s never been changed it may be time
          I have a 15Rt and will be changing mine tomorrow if I can find it

            Thanks I have a look , please let me know if you find it, in case I don't  :) )

            Just been doing a bit of nosing about in a maintenance CD that i purchased for this bike when I purchased it.It shows the batteries in the alarm module that is under the rear rack under a small plate held in place by 4 small screws.But warns you that "Before removal, test the control unit with the BMW Motorrad diagnostic system and make a backup copy of data.
            Remove Front SeatRemove Rear seat
            Remove Rear RackRemove 2 batteries.
