    Alarm dead after battery gone flat

    Hi I am new to the forum but have had my tre since new in 2004 .. its been in garage over winter with optimate fitted but moving stuff around I have broken a wire on charger hence the bike battery has gone flat... I fitted new battery and new optimate..there is also new battery in key fob. when key is in ignition and on the alarm warning light glows and the battery drops from 13.2volts to just over 12volts.. on pressing the key fob remote to set alarm with ignition on or off.. nothing happens... if I keep key fob pressed for 30 seconds plus nothing happens ... any one got any ideas cheers folks if you find it easier my email is [email protected]

    i Had exactly the same, turns out there's an internal battery within the alarm unit that unsurprisingly failed after 15 years !! Just bit the bullet and bought a new alarm unit and hey presto the old girl just fired back to life

    Hi Ernie, common fault.
    I had, but gave it away with the sale of my Nelli, a blanking connector.
    I will try and search my posts on here for the pins to loop out and voila, no alarm immobiliser issue.

    Gets your bike running until you buy a new alarm.

    Regards, Will.

    Or search 'gemel alarm removal' on here. I put photos on of the wiring and the pins are numbered, easy job

    The best thing to do with a bike alarm is remove it and thro it off a cliff! My Tre had a datatool alarm which went off all the time and immobilised the bike. Only took half and hour to remove and the insurance remained the same price.
    The main result was being able to ride it when I wanted too and not when the alarm would let me!
