Datatool alarm odd behaviour - now fixed
- After searching around I have discovered where the batteries in the RC transmitter are held. I found the information at
They are hidden inside the bottom of the plastic housing. In order to replace them it is necessary to first remove the waterproof sleeve, then slide the PCB from the black plastic housing. The battery holder is then exposed in the PCB.
I replaced batteries in the `spare' transmitter which I had never before used and it worked immediately.
Datatool supply a complete replacement battery kit which provides a new housing so I might get one of those to ensure the transmitter is completely waterproof.
- I have a Datatool Evo alarm in my '01 Bonneville, and I had the same symptoms about three months ago. I emailed Datatool and was told that yes, there is a battery (for backup) in the alarm unit, but that it would not cause my problem. They went on to say that the Evo was no longer supported. I removed it, and that was not an easy task, so now I am alarmless.

Pressing either remote button does not silence it. Then after I turn on the ignition the remote button can turn off the alarm. Usually the alarm and remote then work fine for the rest of the day, even if the bike is left unattended for several hours in a car park. But occasionally I get the same symptoms even after I have stopped the engine for a short time, such as after filling up. The remote seems OK as both buttons work and the left button (motion sensor) always seems to operate the alarm as it should. Any ideas anyone?
