I have a 2009 Dyna Super Glide with about 39k on it. Recently I have been having some issues with the security system not recognizing the FOB.

About a month ago I took a ride to Mt. Mitchell, NC. It was in the thirties at the parking lot near the summit, with a thirty mph plus wind blowing. When I tried to start the bike the security system would not turn off. After about five minutes the security system recognized the FOB and the bike started. Trust me, that was not anyplace that I wanted to spend the rest of the day or night.

I figured that the FOB needed a new battery. I bought one and installed it that day; it seemed to be better but a couple of days later it did the same thing. I also noticed for some time that the FOB did not have the range that it used to have. I had to have it right at the bike or it would not work.

So I swapped out the old FOB for the unused one. Now it works exactly as it should. It disables the security system when it is more than fifteen feet away from the bike. The security system has not so much as given me a hiccup since changing FOBS.

There is nothing noticeably wrong the the old FOB. I even cleaned all of the contacts with electrical contact cleaner. It does work, but not all of the time, and as I said earlier, it's range is very limited.

I suppose that I'm going to have to order a backup FOB from Harley. The old one is not reliable enough to count on it anymore.

My problem is I have to be standing 4 feet away to use the fob. What's up with that?

Both fobs need to be married separately, if one has lost its communication with tssm...it will not function. Dealer is only way to program, been there. Went back to tsm.

New Fob

I just bought a new Fob because my new to me 2008 FXDC only came with one. The dealership is going to charge me 1/2 hour of labor to program the new one to the bike and said that this will make the missing original fob useless as the bikes can only be programmed for two fobs. Also, thanks for the info on changing the override code. It was easy to do and one more loose end taken care of for my used bike.

That's absurd, charging $50 (@ my nearest dealer's labor rate) to program a $25 fob.

I bought a new fob from the dealership for $40 and they programmed it for free. Took about 45 minutes while I waited. Also had a new key cut for $5. I thought that was all reasonable. Surprise!
