BMW Alarm on K1300S with RDC (TPMS)
« on: February 15, 2016, 02:38:40 pm »
Being a dork and having spent no more than 2 seconds peering under the seat of my new K13 before buying it, I 'ass u me d' that the black box under there was an alarm.

WRONG

It is in fact the Schrader Electronics RDC (TPMS) unit.

Now, my mate has an S Sport with both alarm and RDC and his alarm unit is under the rear of the seat, just like my alarm on my K12S, in the same place that the K13 RDC unit is located!

So, two (at least) questions...

Firstly, where is his RDC unit located?

Secondly, where would my Alarm unit fit if I buy one?

Thirdly, does it mean re-locationg my RDC if I fit an alarm?

Brian the dork (who is well confused  :o )

The alarm is fitted in the same box and then that same box has diferent  name. They should give you back the old single box as a gift. The new one installed would be ALARM and TPM unit and have two exit ports.
Inside you will find the batteries to be changes every 5 years.
Bikes without any of those boxes (sinle or douple port) do exist. In that case the RDC is part of the ECU unit (bike has diferent specs new version ECU unit). Assuming that it's a factory RDC.

Confused, I am now!

My 12 has an alarm that looks like an alarm, with a big sounder on the top surface.



My mate's K13 has the same unit. They both have 2 moulded 'sockets', but both have only the left hand one connected to the bike.

My 13 has this Schrader box with one socket and only one 'Plug' on the loom.



Neither bike has a 'spare' connector on the loom waiting to be plugged into something.

So, does the same connector do both functions?

yes as Costas has said Brian it's a dual function black box when the alarm and RDC is fitted .... such is the black magic of canbus systems :)

Brian the 12 has no RDC factory installed only the alarm
13 has the RDC single unit like mine and every body else had leaving factory.
At Alarm installation they will change the single unit with the double port box, introduce alarm to ECU via pc and recalibrate RDC with both wheel TPS'S.  And they should give you the single box back.

You need thec Control unit for alarm system/RDC 433MHZ s/n 165758544716 and the
Remote control 433 MHZ s/n 265752337407 .
But the alarm would not work unless you take it to a dealer for programming with ECU , even the horn would not work without reprogramming not to mention the RDC.
If you choose to buy an alarm fm other company GT is the brand that works currently with BMW , also makes the 120 OHM Resistor neened for such an  installation.

I dont know the answer but my K1300s has both, with the alarm added later when I bought the bike.
I think the alarm has to be installed by the dealer to be valid for insurance?

Perhaps, but they would never know. Either way, it has to be initialised by the dealer to even work.

Good point in UK insurances are charging  according to the type, installation, acredidation of alarm brand, etc. Some time ago insurance charges were explained by a member.
