Gen 1 2019 Alarm Fob
« on: October 09, 2020, 04:18:38 PM »
Has anyone got a BMW Alarm Fob working with their OEM Alarm?

I am sure I had one on my last XR but not on this one, and I have a spare Fob from my K16GT I could use?

Yes I have one but it is not supported on the XR  by BMW.
Most of the time it works but sometimes it loses the connection so you have learn it in again.

The standard manual off the K1600GT  tells it.
You can download this one from BMW.

Found the details are in an old K1600 manual from 2014, my 2019 manual doesn’t include it. Tried on my XR and then tried on my K16GT and didn’t pair with either of them  :006:

Prior to 2017, BMW dealers could program the remote fob from the K1600 into the OEM XR alarm (the alarm is the same).  I ordered two fobs from my local dealer and the bike went into to have them linked to the alarm.  When the technician accessed the system, the option to link the fobs was no longer present.

I contacted BMW to ask why this had been removed  BMW had got wind that the alarm fobs from the K1600GTL flagship model were being used on the cheapo S1000XR. So for reasons of "product differentiation" this could not be allowed to happen and the function was removed from the technician's software.

If you've stumped up cash for the K1600GTL and wish to disarm the alarm, then BMW want you to just press a button.  If you're bloody cheapskate and went for the S1000XR then you have to stand around pressing buttons (30 presses is it???  :112:) on the switchgear to DISABLE (not disarm) the alarm.  Then repeat to turn it on.

So I am a kind off lucky.  :018:
I bought my 2016 XR  in 2018 with the alarm fob already programmend in to it.
When I discovered last year that the fob not always works I asked the dealer to look at it but the couldn't fix it eather. There solution was buy a new alarm. :084: So I left it at that.
I agree that turning the alarm on and off without the fob is a lot of work.
BMW should just support the alarm fob. :013:
