My K1300S is having an issue that the front tire pressure is not registering. I know that the front TPS battery is new and that TPS is activated. Could the issue be with the tire pressure sensor control unit? If so, does anyone know where it is located on the bike?
Thanks,
Barry

So your battery is new. Did you install the battery your self. I suspect a failure in that area. The control unit is untouched and I have not yet heard of a failure there.

I did install new batteries in both sensors. Then I got both sensors activated by a mechanic with a Snap On tool. I have a used controller coming.

My money's on a dud sensor. One of mine died and I replaced the battery. The replacement didn't work, or at least it worked for a week or so. I replaced the sensor, registered it, and alls good.

It is much more likely for a sensor to give trouble than the controler, and it is the thing that was changed before the issue arose.
