Yesterday morning while leaving out at 5:45 am for work, I had the privilege of experiencing the “warning notice” that the battery in my fob for my Springfield needed to be changed. In a 30 yard stretch in front of my neighbors’ houses, not once, but four loud beeps from the horn as I drove to the stop sign. It was super embarrassing, but it dang sure made me change the battery as soon as possible! Sure wish it could just be a light flashing on the console or something like that.

That's not necessarily a bad battery yet. Sometimes the bike just cant read the signal due to interference. Happens to me once in great while. Just move the FOB to another pocket or something like that. When it's in my right pocket next to my knife , it doesn't read as well. So I got used to putting it in another pocket. I have changed my battery already once in the 2 years I've had though just for maintenance.

I just automatically change the battery in both my Harley and Indian FOB every spring. As cheap as the batteries are, it gives me peace of mind

Oh, the first world problems we have :rolleyes:, I change mine in the spring also. I put reminders on my Google calendar, works great for birthdays and anniversaries also.

That horn is a good thing. It could prevent theft in the right situation, which is the purpose. The horn blares 4 times or so and then the engine will shut the bike down to protect your investment.

Good engineering in my mind...
