Default TSSM Security Module Resetting Procedure.

For 2001 and up Harley Davidsons with TSSM Security Module, (key icon displays when key is turned to ignition position)

if your security light stays on for a prolonged period of time, if you have changed your battery or disconnected your battery when fitting components such as LED turns & if you have fitted LED turns without a load equalizer, you will need to reprogram your OEM Module.

text in red below step procedure is confirmation of action, always wait for confirmation before hitting the next step:


step # 1. move handle bar kill switch to off position

step # 2. turn your ignition key: on-off, on-off then on

step # 3. hit the left turn signal twice.
your turn signals and indicator light will flash 1 - 3 flashes

step # 4. hit the right turn signal once.
turn signals and indicator light will flash once.

step # 5. hit the right turn signal once.
turn and indicator signals will flash twice.

step # 6. hit right turn signal once.
turn and indicator signals will flash three times.

step # 7. hit left turn signal once.
turn and indicator signals flash to indicate error code
(see error code thread)


step # 8. to now clear codes, hit left turn signal and hold down for 6 seconds until confirmation.
turn and indicator signals flash twice.

step # 9. turn the ign switch to off


Thats it, TSSM is now reset and ready to roll

That's just a gem of a little tip, Pete. I'm not changing blinkers right now, but I'm filing this darling away.

Sk8, I rode my 77 FLH for 20 years, and all I've done is basic maintenance on my 07 and ride the crap out of it since I got it. I'm still learning about these newfangled computers and fuel injection so I'm behind the curve here. What I'm reading is that if I unhook the battery for any reason I need to go through this process, correct?

Lurch, nope not necessarily true. I have had my battery disconnected several times but have never had to reset. But I will tell you they are some handy instructions to have around if you need to.

Good stuff Sk8

I figured it might come in handy so I wrote it down on a note page in my service manual. It may be printed in the manual somewhere, but I couldn't find any reference to it so I put it in there. Definitely good info!

yeah its not in the OEM manual, but in the electronics manual which most folks dont buy. Basically you know you have a problem if the red key light stays on for 4 - 5 seconds once the engine is fired. This is it tellin you there has been an issue of some kind and the fact that it goes out means its historical.

normally with these you have around 50 engine starts and then it auto re-sets.

Question

Hi,
Question, will this procedure also work if you have a used TSSM module.
I heard from a dealer here in Germany that this module takes a code from the first bike it was built in so you can't use it for a other bike again.
Don't know if it was a bull sory or not.
Like to hear from you.
LV,

Bray-ley

Hubby's 02 Frankenstein trike has no handlebar controls. The nice gentleman from a retailer that shall remain unnamed asked me to unplug the TSSM to verify the wire colors and now the key light stays on and the ignition is locked out. Your sequence is awesome, however the reason I was "verifying" the TSSM was to make sure what color wires were on the back side of the plug to install turn signals and turn signal switches.

I have no Harley controls on the handle bars. I have a horn switch. the headlight has a toggle for hi/lo the ignition is a button under the frame.

The good news is I have stock controls on my bike the bad news is mine is a 99. is there anything I can do to get him running again, without buying an entire Harley handlebar control set? Including hot wiring around the TSSM, since there are no handle bar controls even reading codes is not happening.

Thanks,
ftgrl

Default Thanks guys for just being here

Never mind previous post once I took the TSSM off of the frame it was much easier to see that the plug was not plugged in completely. Yes I am an idiot. but it doesn't help that hubby had just come home from working offshore and wanted to ride right now!!!

the good thing is I found this forum so I can look before I do something stupid again. I'll be back.

I just replaced the TSM in my '03 FLHTCU with a TSSM purchased from HD online catalog. I was able to program to key fob and the manual code. I engage the code and mess with the bike with the expected results (no start and flashers start blinking). Then I turn off the Security System. Then when I start the engine, the engine start and runs for a second or two then quits. I can try again and get the same results. Had to pull the TSSM and replace with the TSM to start the bike again. Your thoughts appreciated!

Great info, worked for me ....but at first few attempts ....no signal lights were working , nothing ...and no engine turn over at all , to go back in time a bit, i was riding down a smooth road and bike quit ....then no turn over ,no signals . checked all grounds ,wiring seemed good .The only thing i can think of is that the bike had about 15 min run time,and 2 miles on new piston and bore job . On re- assembly we bumped motor over many times with starter to set pushrods ,kill switch off to prevent ignition . just not sure why tssm had to be reset after i was riding .Thanks any info would great

What is the difference to TSM and TSSM? Is one with security and the other not? Will this work for both or is there a different way to reset if you just have a TSM? I am new to this and having an issue. My issue is my rear blinker stays lit like a marker light however it will blink when I use my left blinker and after I turn off the blinker after a sec it comes back on like a marker light. The right side functions like it is suppose to it goes out and stays out. There are no run light modules on bike or any kind of alterations made from stock electric. I have looked for a bad ground but haven't found any. So I am wondering if it is my TSM or what.

Default MAJOR WARNING ABOUT HARLEY SECURITY SYSTEM

If your HD has the Harley Security system.... requires a key fob to start, but can be bypassed by doing the code with the turn signals... PLEASE REMEMBER TO CHANGE IT FROM THE HD DEFAULT. Lots and lots of thieves know the default code and can start your bike. So change it as soon as you buy it!!!!! Word to the wise!

It's really not that criminals know the code so much as dealers are lazy and put a super simple one in that is easy to try several until you hit one that works. All 1's or 2's and such is just super easy and lazy. My bike was 5 years old and still had that simple code from the original selling dealer. Was the first thing I checked once I got it home.
