Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FLHR Road king
I just installed some new bars (I have successfully done this several times) and I am having an electrical problem. Regards of the position of the switch whether it be in the run or off position, when I turn on the switch at the dash, you hear to pump primer noise. It appears that the switch is not working. I started the bike but had to shut it off at the dash instead on the run switch.
I did pull apart the connector (in the nacelle) to extend the wires I soldered everything up and the solder joints all looked good.
Out of frustration, I cut the wires in the housing because I couldn't get the housing to clamp back down. I figured out my problem after I cut the wires (stupid me) and I soldered those back together. There are two wires that are white with a black stripe. I suspect that they go together somewhere. Does it matter what white with black striped wire goes to what since they should come together somewhere to complete the circuit?
So, the problem your having started after you cut and re-attached the white w/black stripe wires??? If so, as much as a pain in the **** it will be, separate and re-attach in reverse to what they are now. Each wire in the system has a purpose. If any of them get crossed or improperly connected, you will have trouble. Electrical can be tough to diagnose. Usually a process of elimination. If you still have the same problem, get your hands on a wiring diagram schematic. Check the back section of your service manual. ID the starting circuit wires and determine proper connections. Wires that are color coded the same usually run off the same circuit ie: signal lights. Get your wires uncrossed and chances are pretty good your problem will be solved. Hope this helps.
