Triumph Datatool Alarm How to

I bought the Genuine Triumph Alarm "A9808083" for my 2009 Street Triple R and it took me forever to figure out how to customize it. But now I got it and I hope this helps others

Data tool S4 Red/Green Manual found at www.datatool.co.uk/pdfs/s4_ug.pdf
Flowchart explaining process found at http://www.datatool.co.uk/pdfs/s4_so...n_override.pdf

I finally Figured out how to access the stupid Software switches

There are two major processes before you can to access "Engineering Switches", if you wish to contine please READ OVER and OVER BEFORE ATTEMPTING

MP1 - Assign PIN CODE to Datatool Unit
MP2 - Access Software Switches


You must First decide on a 4 digit number (the manual suggests 1426)
then you must get the alarm in to "initilize New Pin" mode [note: Bike must be armed at this point]

<MP1 - Assign PIN CODE to Datatool Unit>
1. Dis-arm system with remote(grey button)
2. Put in key and switch following combination all with-in 7 seconds after completing step 2.a, [note: no need to activate motor]
2.a. Switch ignition ON (you hear familier fuel pump noise and see speedo light and needle climb and fall back to 0 rpm)
2.b. Switch ignition OFF
2.c. Switch ignition ON within 5 seconds of step 2.b(you hear familier fuel pump noise and see speedo light and needle climb and fall back to 0 rpm)
2.d. within ten seconds of step 2.c, Press Grey and Black Buttons simultainiously on remote for just a second (the alarm should make a beep sound)
2.e. Switch ignition OFF
2.f. Switch ignition ON (no pump noise but you will see needle climb and drop to 0 rpm again, however this time you will see the Alarm LED flash)
3. Once you see the Alarm LED Flashing, the Alarm will soon be making a series of beeps Each beep is 1-second long beep followed by 1-second of silence. You will have to refer to the first number of your desired PIN code (e.g 1 from the 1426 example) [note the alarm led flashes in sync with beeps] [note: 0 can be assign by switching off before beeps starts counting]
3.a. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your FIRST number in this case (1) Beep.
3.b. Quickly Turn OFF ignition
3.c. Turn ON ignition and you will notice Alarm LED flashing again, it will soon start beeping in similar fashion
3.d. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your SECOND number in this case (4) Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep.
3.e. Quickly Turn OFF ignition
3.f. Turn ON ignition and you will notice Alarm LED flashing again, it will soon start beeping in similar fashion
3.g. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your THIRD number in this case (2) Beep, Beep.
3.h. Quickly Turn OFF ignition
3.i. Turn ON ignition and you will notice Alarm LED flashing again, it will soon start beeping in similar fashion
3.j. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your FOURTH number in this case (6) Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep.
3.k. Quickly Turn OFF ignition (At this point you will hear a long BEEEEEEEP from datatool unit)
4. After the long Beeeep it time to Reconfirm the pin code that was just entered by Repeating steps 3.a through 3.k notice flashing alarm LED
4.a. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your FIRST number in this case (1) Beep.
4.b. Quickly Turn OFF ignition
4.c. Turn ON ignition and you will notice Alarm LED flashing again, it will soon start beeping in similar fashion
4.d. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your SECOND number in this case (4) Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep.
4.e. Quickly Turn OFF ignition
4.f. Turn ON ignition and you will notice Alarm LED flashing again, it will soon start beeping in similar fashion
4.g. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your THIRD number in this case (2) Beep, Beep.
4.h. Quickly Turn OFF ignition
4.i. Turn ON ignition and you will notice Alarm LED flashing again, it will soon start beeping in similar fashion
4.j. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your FOURTH number in this case (6) Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep.
4.k. Quickly Turn OFF ignition (from this point you will either hear two short beeps to say pin entered sucessfully OR three LONG beep to tell you error has occured and to repeat starting from step 1)

Once you have sucessfully assigned a New Pin you are now able to "Customize System" Setting with New PIN [note: Bike must be armed at this point]

<MP2 - Access Software Switches>
1. Dis-arm system with remote(grey button)
2. Put in key and switch following combination all with-in 7 seconds of step 2.a without activating motor
2.a. Switch ignition ON (you hear familier fuel pump noise and see speedo light and needle climb and fall back to 0 rpm)
2.b. Switch ignition OFF
2.c. Switch ignition ON (you hear familier fuel pump noise and see speedo light and needle climb and fall back to 0 rpm)
2.d. Switch ignition OFF
2.e. Switch ignition ON (no pump noise but you will see needle climb and drop to 0 rpm again, however this time you will see the Alarm LED flash)
3. At this point you will have to enter the PIN you've assigned from <MP1 - Assign PIN CODE to Datatool Unit> You will soon hear beeps
3.a. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your FIRST number in this case (1) Beep.
3.b. Quickly Turn OFF ignition
3.c. Turn ON ignition and you will notice Alarm LED flashing again, it will soon start beeping in similar fashion
3.d. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your SECOND number in this case (4) Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep.
3.e. Quickly Turn OFF ignition
3.f. Turn ON ignition and you will notice Alarm LED flashing again, it will soon start beeping in similar fashion
3.g. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your THIRD number in this case (2) Beep, Beep.
3.h. Quickly Turn OFF ignition
3.i. Turn ON ignition and you will notice Alarm LED flashing again, it will soon start beeping in similar fashion
3.j. Start counting the number of beep[s] generated by datatool unit until it matches your FOURTH number in this case (6) Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep.
3.k. Quickly Turn OFF ignition (At this point you will hear a long BEEEEEP from datatool unit Confiming that PIN was Sucessfully entered)
4. You will now turn ON the ignition (you can wait for the fuel pump noises to end) and then push the Grey button on remote, you will hear a beep(don't worry about reprogramming remote in to that is already in system. If you only had two remote the Alarm LED will flash twice at this point indicating just two remotes)
5. Turn OFF ignition and you will hear a LONG BEEEP
6. Turn ON Ignition one more time and you will hear a short beep confirming that you are in the First level software switches, as illustrated in page 15 in S4 guide, The short beep also indicates which of the switches is selected. To navigate to switch two, press the Grey button (you should hear two short beeps), pressing Grey button one more time will take you to switch 3 (indicated by 3 short beeps). If you press the Black button it should reverse that selection order.

Once you have accessed the First level Software switches, there is the Dealer "Engineering switch" mode.
1. To access Engineering Switches you have to navigate to switch 3 in step 6 of <MP2 - Access Software Switches> and press a combination of buttons
1.a. once you hear three short beeps confirming your at switch 3 "Select engineer software switches" you will press Grey and Black buttons Simultainiously on remote(you will Hear a Beep)
1.b. Once you hear beep, Press just the Grey button (you will a hear beep)
1.c. you will then press the Grey and Black Buttons Simultainiously again (you will hear a beep)
1.d. Last you will press the Black Button on remote (at which you will hear a LOWER tone BEEP, confirming that you have accessed engineering switch number 1 from manual page 17


BAM!

News Flash - Had another shot at programming the engineering mode. First I turned the arm/disarm tones on, followed by adjusting the sensitivity of the shock sensor. When in switch 5, the alarm LED flashes the number of times which correspond to the sensitivity. Level 3 needs a decent shock to set alarm off, a tap on top of the seat or on the exhaust isn't enough to set it off. I'm going to up the level to 5 tomorrow after I've got back from a ride to see whether the good old cooling manifold test will set the alarm off

Original Post below - Note: short double beeps heard when entering code to get into engineering mode.


Duckman!
Have been trying to set the sensitivity of the shock sensor (switch 5) and am having some problems when in the software switch.
Following your instructions, in the engineering switch mode steps 1b through 1d work, but I get a double beep....
From there I'm able to use the grey and black buttons to toggle through the features.
When I enter feature 5 Shock sensor adjustment (after 5 beeps I press both Grey and Black to enter the mode), all I get is the LED on the panel flash at me, ten times then a break followed by another ten times, and continues in this manner. Pressing the grey or black buttons doesn't follow with any beeps. When I do however press grey and black together to accept the settings I do get the two beeps.
I have pressed the grey button 5 times in the feature 5 sections (hoping to drop the sensitivity), but no great difference afterwards.
Has anyone else had luck with the shock sensor adjustment and what settings have you left it at?

Regards,
Paul

Bike knocked over - alarm didn't go off.

Came out of the store. Bike was up but had bent number plate and scratches on right side handlebar end, some nicks on right side exhaust etc. Obviously someone knocked it over. Had crash knobs thankfully.
When I disarmed the bike in order to start it there was no tone to acknowledge that the alarm had gone off. The sensitivity of the motion sensor seems to change often. Sometimes I can sit on the bike and nothing will happen. Other times a tap on the rear tyre will cause a warning beep.
Frustrating.

It's the datatool alarm advertised on the triumph website.

Unhappy RE: Bike knocked over - alarm didn't go off.

Sounds bizzare that the bike alarm didn't go off if the bike was tipped over. If my alarm is fully armed, it will go off if I move it to the upright position (not resting on the stand).

Could it be that someone could have hit the bike with a car instead without knocking it over? i.e. pulling out of a car space. I'd expect to see damage on the pillion footpeg mount as well because (without trying it) I beleive this would make contact with the ground before the pipe would.

Firstly before I harp on about all the settings and my ideas on your situation, I believe that when my alarm was installed at the dealership there is a possiblility that only some of the settings weren't left at default. For example, my alarm would go off without warning of a nudge as the default setting should have done. This however doesn't discount the possibility that the movement sensor could have been so close to triggering that any movements of a cooling exhaust or sidestand movement did set off the alarm. There are a number of posts on the Ducati forums with owners pointing the finger at the motion sensor.

In accusing the dealership of changing the default settings on me, I don't recall ever hearing 4 beeps after the disarming the system (triggered by nudge sensor), but have heard enough of the 3 beeps(movement sensor) after disarming the system in the garage . Whilst getting the ****s with the alarm going off, I could have ignored the number of disarm beeps. So after all this typing it could very well be that the movement sensor was that close to the triggering point after all. This points to an installation issue rather than a settings issue. I still seem to be blaming the dealership here.....

My understanding from the S4 manual and suspicions about your situation is:

1.
The movement sensor only activates when the bike is tilted more than the 2-5 degree range as described in the manual (software switch 4). You can sit on the bike, so long as you don't tilt it more than the tilt setting, the alarm will not go off.

A passive immobilise (which occurs if you were to turn the ignition off and walk away from the bike without pressing the grey button) will NOT activate the movement, nudge or battery backup-coverage (Whatever that is...). A good explanation how the bike could have been tipped over and picked back up, whilst apart from the cosmetic damage, you being none the wiser about what really happened.

You could have pressed the grey button and walked away assuming that the alarm was on, but it may never have been fully armed. You can get a fair distance away from the bike in 45 secs if you don't stop to do the usual gloves and helmet off routine before walking away from the bike.


2.
Software switches 5 (shock sensor) and 8 (nudge sensor warning settings) work together. Sensitivity 1 being the least sensitive and 10 being the most sensitive. Once again, a passive immobilise of the system will not activate the nudge sensor!!!

I have changed the sensitivity of the shock sensor to 5 or 6 (can't remember), and have yet to have a false alarm since. With a BIG HOWEVER, in the process of my frustrations I did remove and re-seat the alarm unit in the tail of the bike. Seems to me that Triumph have gone to some reasonable effort to make the whole unit sit nicely in a purpose designed position, which should remove some of the idiot factor when installing the alarm unit, reducely the likelyhood of a movement sensor false alarm.

I can give the seat a good bash and tap the exhaust without setting the alarm off now.




I do plan on raising the sensitivity of the shock sensor again to see if my false alarming problems return. If they do, I'll probably change the motion sensor tilt angle to 5 degrees and see whether that alleviates my issues, hence ruling out the nudge/shock sensor combo. I will post back when I have had the motivation to continue my testing....for now I'm glad the alarm is not going off at perceived random intervals

Please post back if you have a great epiphany before I do.

We'll spin this off into a troubleshooting thread at a later time.
