With no luck I hit the starter again and it sounded like the starter was spinning freell with no motor drag. After thatvsound I stopped. I let it sit for a minute and then hit the start button and nothing! All I could hear was a loud click from the right rear side. I called my dealer since it has another year warranty and he said it sounded like the starter relay. He has had several problems with the relays and actually stocks about 8 of them. After he addresses the starting issue, he is going to look into why it started and died. But first things first. According to my dealer, these relays have had several issues. Is this common or is it, like coil failure, a passing phase? It broke my heart to trailer it back to the dealer especially when my neighbors piece of shit sportster 883 was pulling away. ,I've heard about a few relay problems...But not many at all. What you are describing sounds more like a problem with the starter motor, or a worn gear leading from the starter to the sprag clutch (there appears to be 2). Or the sprag clutch itself. But that would be the first time I have ever heard of any problems there. Hopefully, its just the relay....We all know the Capo has her little electrical gremlins Good luck, and please keep us posted. ,,,

This happened to me. Turned out to be a broken wire from the alternator. I suspected the alternator at first but it wasn't that. Traced the 2 wires from the alternator to a connection plug and found a broken wire. Repaired and now all fine.

Well, I'm glad your O.K. You could have one of many problems going on, I would start with the simple, change your air filter. If you service your car regularly, thats probably not it, but ya never know, there could be something stuck in there. If that don't fix it, then there are many more things to look at, and you will probably want someone qualified to check it out for you, As I said before tho, It's definatly not dieing because of the steering fluid. Are there any smells when the car dies?

Motor wont turn, but lights and radio come on

the starter may be going bad,if you can reach under the car in the front-if there is no plastic covers in the way,hit the starter a couple of times,the brushes may be going bad and the vibration will move the brushes inside the starter enough to work temperarily.if that helps then replace the starter.
