K1200 GT (2004) alarm problem


Does anyone have any advice about the alarm on a K1200 GT (2004), started OK this morning, went round the corner to get fuel. Tried to start engine, alarm/immobilizer will not switch off. Fob flashing, new batteries, can't start bike to get to work. Is there anyway to reset immobilizer, so that I can get to work.

Who's alarm is it? BMW OEM or Datatool.

I only know a bit about the latter and I won't disclose alarm details on an open forum, in case it helps thieves steal our bikes.

If a Datatool alarm fails, you are pretty stuffed. They wire it into the bike system to make it as hard as possible for thieves to disable, consequently unwiring one without technical or installation knowledge (only available to registered installers) is also difficult - that's something you have to accept if you want a secure setup. If it's one of those, you should have had some info about setting up an emergency code, but guess you might be in the dark on that. There are also some procedures for transferring the code to the remote and Datatool supply 2 remote fobs. You said new batteries, some fobs clear what they learned after replacing batteries and you have to go through a reset procedure to teach them the code again. You need an instruction manual for your alarm/imobiliser. It's just as important as putting petrol in the tank!

Best option if it's Datatool, is talk to one of their service centres. I think most BMW shops fit them. I've had mine on the bike over 3 years now. I had some initial problems which they helped me sort and they were a great firm to deal with.
