Harley Davidson Iron 883 model button start system not working after installing screaming eagle muffler bike is 2 months old


Look at the end of your starter. There's a five-sided plate on the end held on with three small screws. Just above it, there is a single wire plugged onto the starter. Pull this wire off and connect either a test light or a volt meter to the wire. Turn the switch on and press the start button. You should see the light light up or the meter should show battery voltage. If you show voltage at this wire but the starter doesn't run, the problem is in the starter. If no voltage at the wire, your starter relay may be bad. I think the starter relay for your bike is behind the triangular plate on the left side of your bike. The relay is a one inch plastic cube just like the relays on most automobiles. With the switch still on, press the start button. You should feel the relay "click". If it does click, you might want to replace the relay and retest the starter wire. If it does not click, it could still be the relay or it could be the wiring between the start button and the starter relay. Since I don't have a wiring diagram for your bike, you may need to purchase a service manual to obtain one or find it from another source. I wouldn't think the installation of a muffler would have anything to do with the starter operation.

Good Luck

I know my model is off but i couldnt find my 1974 in there. Anyway i posted earlier that my 1974 just quits on me while riding. I mentioned i replaced my coil and breaker. That is incorrect. What i did...


Your bike should have the large round relay that only has three terminals on it. There are two larger terminals, one for a large red wire from the battery, and one for a green wire going to the small connector on the starter solenoid. The small connection on the relay is for the wire that comes from the start button. The ground is though the body of the relay where it bolts to the bottom of the battery box. It does sound like a breaker is tripping on your bike. Now, someone may have changed the starter relay on your bike in the past. On your Shovel, there is a chrome cover over the coil on the left side of your bike. Make sure that cover is not loose. If it is, it will drop down onto the top electrical connector of the coil and short the white wire out. This will cause the breaker to trip and shut everything on the bike down. If you need a wiring diagram, contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send you one via e-mail as a JPG or GIF picture file.

Bike won't start, new Harley battery, and starter bike 2006 FLHX Street Glide, all I get is a clicking noise from solenoid under seat


I'm not too familiar with the later model bikes but if I were getting a clicking noise under the seat and the bike was not starting, I'd investigate the source of the noise. It's possible that it is a starter relay that engages the solenoid that is an integral part of the starter. Look at the starter from the right hand side of your bike. You'll see a single small wire that connects to the end of the starter just above the end plate of the solenoid. Disconnect this wire and connect a test light or volt meter to the wire. Turn on your ignition switch and press the start button. You should hear the click under the seat and see voltage at the end of that wire. If not, replace the relay, a plastic cube about an inch in dimension.

Good Luck

Bike wont start just quit working one day it doesnt try to turn over battery is good and holding voltage, have checked all fuses, starter relay, kill switch, ran up and down that bike with a volt meter...


Push the starter button if your hear the solenoid clicking the starter button is good. If there is no click from the solenoid you may need to clean or replace the starter button.Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Jump across the two cable terminals, this should activate the starter.If the starter works now you have burnt contacts inside the solenoid. replace the solenoid. If the starter does not turn over, try again tapping on the starter with a plastic hammer if the starter works now you need starter brushes. If the starter will not turn over with direct power (bench test) and the brushes are good the armature is probably shorted. You will have to replace the starter as an assembly parts are not available to rebuild the starter.

My husband will press on the start and nothing happens. It was just random but now nothing.


Maybe you ought to press the button. No seriously, if everything else on the bike is working correctly, you could have a bad starter relay. There may be more than two relays on the bike but one is a starter relay. When you press the start button, the relay should energize and send power to the starter solenoid. The relay is a cube about one inch in dimension. Usually located under the seat. You'd need a wiring diagram to test to see which wire power from the start button was coming from.

Usually most relays have a schematic drawn right on them. Look at the relay and find the "coil" connections. Using either a test light or a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) , test to see if you're getting power to the "coil" of the relay. Turn the ignition switch on, insert the probe of the test light or meter and press the start button. The test light should light up or the meter should indicate battery voltage at this connection. If so, replace the relay as either the coil is bad or the contacts for the starter circuit are bad. If not voltage, your start switch may be bad.

Won' start,starter relay clicks but nothing happens.


Look at the end of the starter from the right side of the bike. There is a pentagon shaped (5 sided) plate on the end of the starter solenoid. Just above this plate that is a singe wire that plugs into the starter. Unplug this wire and stick the probe of a volt meter or a test light in the wire end of the connector. When you press the starter button, you should hear the starter relay click and you should show batttery voltage at this connector. If you do NOT show and voltage at that wire, replace the relay. If you DO show voltage, your problem is in the starter.

Good Luck

Starter problem


I think there are two possible causes here:-

1.(Easy) your starter-button is permanently contacting, split the right-hand switchgear on the bars to check and clean.

2. (Git) The starter circuit relay(Not the starter-relay) in the junction box is knackered causing the circuit to be live as soon as ignition is switched on.
This will be located under the seat or behind a side panel. The whole assembly will have to be replaced probably.

Hope it's the button.

Self Start problem...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description is the starter relay making the clicking sound. Problem could be any of 2 possibilities:
  • starter relay/solenoid; and/or
  • starter motor.
To determine which, jump the 2 big terminals of the starter relay/solenoid when starting the bike; if the motor turns, the relay/solenoid is defective; if the starter motor does not turn, the starter motor is defective (most likely the carbon brushes).

Of course other possibilities still exist, such as:
  • loose, corroded battery terminals, relay, starter terminal/connectors;
  • weak battery.
  • open, corroded fuse/fuse terminals.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
