    Not sure if the dealer can recover the password with the digital tech or not but worse case scenario the TSSM has to be replaced but not the ECM. You can always go to a TSM and do away with the alarm completely as the cheaper route. This you can do yourself and do the password relearn procedure below. The dealer may be able to track the original selling dealer through their computer if he's decent about it and wants to help out.

    If you want to try this to see if you can retrieve the pin code on your bike, it's a chance but it may work.

    I had to do this awhile back. I have an 02 electra glide with the alarm. The turn signals stopped working and it was traced to the TSSM module. I bought on on ebay for 15 dollars and the dollar charged me 35.00 to "marry" it the the bike. It was still alot cheaper to do it that way than to buy a new TSM or TSSM. It took about 15 minutes for the dealer to complete the work. I tried the manuals way but I didn't have good results, thats why I went to the dealer. If you find one for sale, get the part number and then call the dealer and ask if it will be compatable...I told them my friend had one I could have, rather than let on I bought it from ebay. A new one was around 100+ dollars I think.
