  • GL1800 (2012+): Is there any way to turn off the TPMS light?

    The yellow TPMS light is continually lit, most likely because one or more of my TPMS sensors has a dead battery. Since I am about ready to sell my 2012, I am not too keen on spending $400 to buy new sensors. Besides, I have a far superior Doran TPMS system installed.

    Is there any way to "turn off" that annoying light?

    I found a tech sheet from Lehman Trikes on how to do this, but was wondering if any of you have done this before.

    Is this what you're talking about?

    Tire Pressure Indicator Light Disable
    For motorcycles equipped with a Tire Pressure
    Monitor System (TPMS) the warning light on the
    dashboard will stay on.

    Follow the following procedure to
    disable the warning light: Figure 50
    a. Remove the right front fairing pocket to
    access the TPMS control module.
    b. Locate the Green wire and the White/Yellow
    wire on the TPMS module wiring harness
    c. Splice the Green wire and the White/Yellow
    wire together to disable the light.
    d. Replace the wiring to it’s original location
    e. Replace the fairing pocket.

      You can change out the battery on the current one you have is another option - Remove Valve core - break the tire bead -Use clamps to do that by the Valve stems -Clamp the tire to one side -now remove the valve stem and you can work on the replacing the battery.

      No need to remove the tire from the rim.

      You can also get a pre made plug and play solution from a Trike MFG -They Disable them all the time when converting - using a pre-made plug. NO cutting and splicing -Check with Motor-Trike

        I bought the "kit" from motor trike or California side car-can't remember. It was plug and play. I did it so that I could swap rear wheels easier without the light coming on.

            Doran TPMS Review
            by Cruiseman
            I was excited when I learned that Honda was including tire pressure monitoring (TPMS) on the 2012 Goldwing ABS that I purchased in 2011. I was less excited when I learned that the system only alerts you when a tire is low, and does not inform you which tire is low. In addition, there is no indication of the actual pressure inside the tire. Yet another oversight by Mother Honda. I suppose the factory TPMS is better than nothing, but it is far from elegant. So, when the opportunity presented itself for me to install, video, and review the TPMS from Doran, I was pretty stoked. ...

            TPMS Trike Query
            by RodG
            Asking the 2018 gurus:
            When the bike is triked, can the TPMS sensor from the rear wheel be 'relocated' to one of the 2 rear wheels on the trike? And, can the rear tire pressure alarm be adjusted...
