Harley will not start .battery fully charged relay pulling in but will not start 2005 model fatboy

Check to make sure voltage is getting to the starter while you have the start button pushed. If you have battery voltage then you need to repair or replace the starter

My generac generator wont start,making a clicking noise and battery is fully charged

Have somone hold the start button while you measure the voltage across the battery. If it is less than 11 volts, then the battery is bad.

A few simple tests and what the results mean.

Obtain a voltmeter that will allow you to read up to about 16-17 volts DC.

1. Start vehicle, attach voltmeter to battery (red to +) (black to -) and read voltage. *Note: you are reading the output of the alternator with it running.
If Voltage is about 14-15v, alternator is good. If less than 14v, or very high 16+v, likely alternator(or voltage regulator) is not working properly. Have alternator checked at local auto parts place, replacement may be necessary.
If voltage is in 14-15v range alternator is working properly. Battery replacement is next logical problem, it can can be tested at the local auto parts store as well.

**If a charging system is good, and battery is good, check battery cables. Bypass battery cables by connecting battery directly to starter with jumper cables. If car starts with battery cables connected and not when disconnected, replace battery cables.

2. A charged battery will read at about 13.5 v while engine is turned off, but it does indicate if a battery will hold a charge.

Best of luck resolving this problem.

I have a 2002 Harley Davidson Fatboy, No power to ignition and no lights. Battery good, all wire connections are good. could it be the starter relay switch, voltage regulator or stator

Hi Anonymous, remove seat and directly behind the battery is a black plastic box. The cover slides up and off revealing the starter relay and the system/fuel pump relay for you injected folks and the various assorted circuit fuses. Good luck

Car won't start without being charged and when it sits overnight it wont start. makes a clicking noise when trying to start it

Battery is to weak & not holding charge. If the battery does not have enough power the starter will make a fast clicking sound or you will just hear one click.

I need to change the voltage regulator on a 2002 harley ultra classic can you take me through the stepes to do it

First disconnect the battery negative post. Then, unplug the two wires that run from the regulator to the front part of the engine. Follow the remaining wire from the regulator to the either the battery positive post or to the starter connection and disconnect that wire. Remember how it was routed through the engine and frame area. Unbolt the regulator and bolt the new replacement back up in it's place. There may be a "star type" lock washer between the regulator and the frame on all the mounting bolts. Put his washer back on or in the case there isn't one, put one on each mounting bolt. The purpose of this is to ensure the regulator has a good ground. If if doesn't have a good ground, it will not work correctly. Plug the plug from the regulator into the socket on the front of the engine and run the remaining long wire along the frame and back to where the original wire came from, either the battery positive post or the starter connection. Some people cut the original wire and splice in the new wire from the new regulator but I don't recommend it. It's a problem waiting to happen. Reconnect the battery negative post. When working with a battery, always disconnect the negative post first and reconnect the negative last. This prevents damage to the battery or motorcycle and possibly prevents injury to you due to arcing the battery against the frame ground.

Good Luck

Since the solenoid clicks the starter button works. follow the positive battery cable to the solenoid. Jump the two solenoid posts, if the starter works , you have a bad solenoid. Hold the starter button and gently tap on the starter with a plastic hammer. If the starter works you need new brushes. If you take the starter apart and the coils are burnt or the armature is shorted , you need a new starter. When testing an armature you should have continuity between every other brush contact point.

A bad voltage regulator could cause the problem. Assuming the alternator is working correctly. Jump the vehicle with the battery disconnected and then disconnect the jumper cables. If the vehicle dies your voltage regulator or Alternator are bad, some vehicle have separate regulators from the alternator, if it continues to run the alternator is good but the voltage regulator is probably the cause.

I start my truck, it runs great. As soon as I shut it off it dies

You are correct. If your battery tests good, then the starter is your problem.
