BMW R1200GS LC Tyre Pressure Alarm

Post by ollydog » Sat Jan 09, 2021 1:17 pm

One for you gents out there and happy new year to all who know me.

BMW R1200GS Water cooled, my red tringle is flashing on the tyre monitor display but the actual pressures on the gauges are good, 2 bar and 2.1bar

So before I started taking tyres off and replacing battery's on the sensors any ideas to reset ect

The bike has been sat for 12 months and not run, just noticed this today taking it for the MOT.

Also forgot to add but the service light is on as well

Thanks Steve

I think if it's reading the correct pressure then it will be a low battery warning light.
Although mine started do it, it then went away, on a 3 Year old bike. I'm not sure how long they should last.
I thought it was charged by inertia as they don't read until the wheels are moving but thats not the case.

Tyre pressure is quoted as
Front 2.2 bar
Rear 2.5 bar

Take a look at the fuse in the holder under the front seat. Mine kept showing low pressure but the fuse had come loose.
