Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FXDCI Dyna Super Glide Custom

1 Answer

Check engine light acting up

I ride a 2001 Super Glide that seems to have gremlins in the speedo. Last year, I'd be riding and the needle would freeze at whatever speed I was at, and the check engine light would come on. Riding at night, I also noticed the front turn/marker lamps would get really bright prior to the needle and check engine light acting up. The odometer also went blank when all this happened. After a minute or so, the needle dropped to zero (while still at speed), popped up to whatever speed I was at, and then the check engine lamp cleared. This spring it's different. The speedo usually freezes at the 10-15 mph mark, and the check engine lamp comes on. The only time it clears up is while coming to a stop. I rode a good 70 miles recently, and the odometer only registered a little over six miles. I had my Harley dealership check it out but with no fix. And I’ve cleaned the speed sensor with no change. So, do you think it’s the speedo, regulator, or stator?

The first thing I would check is the voltage output from the charging system. If the regulator isn’t regulating, the voltage will keep climbing as the engine speed increases. The electronics in the speedometer don’t work well at these high voltages. This would also explain the bright marker lamps. You should be able to see this with a simple voltmeter across the battery terminals.

Speedometer not working


Hi Anonymous, the usual suspect is the speed sensor located on the right side of the transmission between the top cover and the starter end cap. Simply undo the the allen screw that holds it in and clean off any contamination, then re-install it and go for a ride. If your speedo still does't work go to www.fuelmotousa.com/harleycodes.html you can get valuable help there. Good luck

Riding my1999 wyde glide and it just died have power to speedo lights but wont turn over


Does anything else work? If not probably only enough juice in the battery to work the speedo lights. If you have a MF (Maintenance Free) Battery and its over 2 years old welcome to the club your battery is shot. They don't last like the fill up types did, also they tend to lie if you charge them i.e. register fully charged but try to use it and nothing happens. If yours is a fill up type try charging it with a dedicated motorcycle charger. No more than 1 amp.and see if it works if not get a new battery.

My speedo 0n 2001 superglide quit working how do i know if sensor or speedo


Chances are it's the sensor. Speedos rarely give up the ghost. It's possible the sensor only needs to be cleaned. Try that first. Find where the sensor bolts to the trans case. It has an allen bolt. Remove the bolt and twist the sensor while pulling it up. Once it's out of the case, check the magnet on the bottom for debris. Clean off any debris and reinstall the sensor. Ride the bike to check if the sensor is working. Good luck!

2000 FXD super glide..47k miles..riding at highway speed my battery got super hot,tach stopped,speedometer stopped and then engine stopped running.i can not touch battery box without burning my self.s


Check the regulator. It sounds as if it has packed in, when the engine is at idle the alternator output is low, but when revved it will be higher, the regulator controls the top end of the voltage range. Also check the battery connections are tight and free from corrosion.

2002 FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide: Was riding last night and the speedometer stopped working as I was riding. Would like to know is this the speedometer that needs replaced or is it the speedometer speed sensor?...


ON THE SPEEDO PROBLEM, JUST CHECK THE SENSOR FIRST, WHICH WILL BE ON THE REAR AXLE, IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN.
THE GUY THAT WENT TO THE DEALER SHOULD JUST WRITE-OFF THOSE CREEPS. GO TO A LOCAL SCOOTER MECH. YOU DON'T NEED THOSE $100.00 AN HR. ******** WORKING ON YOUR BIKE, BESIDES HALF OF THEM ARE RIGHT OUT OF SCHOOL AND DON'T KNOW **** FROM SHINOLA.

While riding my 2006 low rider my speedo, tach and neutral switch suddenly stopped working...is this a fuse?


Hi James_leary, could be, but I would also check the wiring harness connector that plugs into the speedo and tach for corroded, broken or loose pins. Good luck.

To me, the best thing about the SG is that it gets you on a Big Twin (vs. a Sportster), and you can modify it any way you want. I bought mine in 2002, and since then I have lowered it, chromed out the engine, chrome handlebar covers, put a mid-glide front end on it, etc. This winter I am putting on new handlbars, I am getting a custom paint job, a new rear end, an all chrome wide-glide front end, and a digital speedo. It has taken me 6 years to finally get it where I want it, but I am glad I'm on a Twin Cam. As far as braking and handling, the SG is really good. Not as good as a sportbike, obviously, but you should find it to be a good ride. I'd recommend test riding one. Many dealers have demo days, pay attention for the next time your local has one, and get out on one, you'll love it.
