Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FXD - FXDI Dyna Super Glide

1 Answer

I took the horn & h-beam switches off my bike.

While my bike was running I cut each wire to those two switvhes separately to make sure I did not cause any issues with operation. It did not change anything. The next day I realized my headlight was not working, what does a burned out headlight look like.

SOURCE: 89 Sportster 1200 with electical issues

First thing to do is charge the battery and do a load test on it. Use a charger rated for motorcycle batterys not a battery tender. Once the battery is charged and tested, you need to test the stator. On the right front down tube at the bottom you will find the plug that goes from the stator to the voltage regulator. I forget the values that you are looking for but with a multi meter and the bike running take a reading at the plug the voltage should climb when you rev the engine. If you do not get any reading or if the voltage dosen't climb you have a bad stator. If the battery and stator are good it will be your voltage regulator.

SOURCE: 1995 Harley Sportster won't turn over.

sounds like the battery has dropped a cell,it will still have power but not enough to turn the bike over properly,harley atarters use a lot of current to turn over so a slightly weak battery will cause all sorts of grief,hope this helps...cheers

SOURCE: accessory fuse keeps blowing, headlight not working

I know this sounds aomewhat general, however please give the following some thought:
Check your relays, if you have an aftermarket horn you may have a different relay. To troubleshoot unplug your headlight, unplug your horn, etc.. Turn your ignition switch to accessory only. See if the fuse pops. If it does unplug whatever added accessories you may have still have plugged in. Once you can get the fuse to stop popping, turn the ignition switch to on. Then one at a time plug you accessory, headlight, etc. back in. When you find what pops the fuse, unplug that item, start plugging in the other items, if the fuse has not popped you have potentially isolated the circuit causing the issue. Now check the wiring for loose connections, bad ground, and CHECK the relay if that item has one. Hope this helps,

JP

Have a dirt bike with headlight. Three wires for hi/lo, how do I put two fog lights in place of that head light without too much wiring work. I don't need hi/lo option


one wire will for high beam
one wire will be for low beam
the last wire will be ground wire
as fog light have only one beam you can use the low beam wire and parallel wire it to the fog lights
that way you have the head lights still and the fog lights as accessories correctly wired according to regulations
how to do it simply-- find the low beam power wire ( light switch on low beam and power at the light bulb check ed with a multi meter set on volts
solder , piggy back, or double plug in a connection into that wire and run one wire to the left fog light and one to the right fog light connect each fog light to an individual ground wire and connect those wires back to the ground wire for the main lights
Now having done that simple addition to the lighting system another problem has come up
The wiring will now be too light to carry fog light current and or the light switch will burn out
To over come this problem, the circuit needs a relay
fit a relay on the bike and now run the low beam wire to a terminal of the relay
run the other terminal wire to ground
this enables the relay to operate when the low beam is switched on but at this will not switch on the lights yet
now you have to run a heavy gauge wire (fused at the battery) to one of the power terminals of the relay and from the other power terminal to the connection for the fog and low beam lights
Now it all works switch on the high beam and no for lights
change to low beam and the fog lights come on as well
All nice and legal
Of course if you don't care about being legal just buy a 30 amp toggle switch and run a fused wire directly to the switch from the battery to the lights and then to ground from the lights
You will know that the generator / alternator for the bike will not be able to run the fog lights with or without the main lights so what will you have achieved

What does a burned out headlight for a dyna fxd look like?


the bulb glass itself usually looks burned with black and/or white distortions on the glass. the bulbs are cheap enough, just replace it with a new one. if it's not it, you'll still have a back up on hand.

On 17th Aug.2011,I took delivery of a brand new Bajaj avenger. The sound quality of the horn was very poor, so I fixed a new roots horn. That day, after riding for 25 kms or so, suddenly the fuse blowed...


The electricity is present and available whenever the bike is turned on. No electricity flows until the button is pressed completing the circuit to the horn. Change to a 4amp fuse. The 2amp will blow due to the 3.5amp current draw. Be sure there are no bare spots in the wire, ( there shouldn't be considering it is a new bike ). Also keep in mind that the dealer is not responsible for horn or fuse or wiring problems since the factory horn has been replaced. The factory warranty does not cover aftermarket accessories or problems arising from same. If vibration is causing abrasion on a wire, do what you can to restrict the vibration and insulate the wire.

1995 LeSabre: Horn honking randomly. Is there a way to use the existing horn and run a wire to a separate switch to the inside of the car? The cost to replace the switch is too high since it located in...


You can by-pass the horn pad on the steering wheel and install an after-market Horn Button to operate the horn, and you can purchase an after-market Horn Button from most auto part stores for under five dollars, and there are a few different designs that you can choose from.

You will also need enough ground wire to wire the horn button into your vehicle, and most likely a few wire connectors, and that can all be figured out once you actually see the Horn Button that you purchase.

To install the Horn Button:

First locate the turn signal switch wire connector and it should be on the lower right side of the steering column.

Then locate the Horn wire, it will have battery voltage at the wire and when the horn wire is grounded the Horn will operate or sound, and usually GM used a Black wire with an Orange stripe for the Horn wire at the vehicle wire connector for the turn signal switch from the vehicle wire harness, and the wire usually changed to a solid Black wire on the wire connector from the turn signal switch. However that is not always the case, and the wires should be tested to be certain of the Horn wire.

You can connect a test wire to a good ground and quickly make contact with the wire that you are testing and when the Horn sounds then you have found the right wire. (make contact for only a second and do not ground the wires that you are testing for more than a second or you could blow a fuse)

Once you have successfully located the Horn wire, then on the wire connector from the turn signal switch, cut the horn wire about three inches from the wire connector for the turn signal switch. (or at least enough to connect a wire to the cut Horn wire from the turn signal wire connector)

The rest is simple, you just connect one of the wires from the Horn Button to the cut wire from the turn signal wire connector, and then connect the other wire from the Horn Button to a good ground, and then test the operation of the Horn Button, and if the horn is working with the new Horn Button then mount the Horn Button where you want it to be and the job is complete, and you should then have a fully functional horn again.

I have made you a wire diagram to help assist you, but it is only for a referencre and the wire colors might not match, so be sure that you actually test the wires to find the actual wire for the horn. Let me know if you require any further assisance.

84 honda shadow 700 vt lights are unpredictable


There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!

When you reassembled the bike did you pinch any of the wiring harnesses? Trace the wiring through the bike and make sure everything has a solid connection between their respective power sources and activation switches. Alot of time bikes run wiring under the gas tanks so you need to make sure that you didnt cut anything when pputting it back on (if you removed the tank)

!997 Chevrolet S10 headlight problem


ya know it kinda sounds like the headlight switch that switches from high beam to low beam has a bad contact. You don't have one of those 4-beam modules that turn on all 4 lights on high beam do you? that thing screwed my whole headlight system up, I ended up throwing it in the trash.

I have the chiltons and haynes manual, I'm sure between the two we'll find a good diagram. I gotta get my youngin to open house at school, but I'll pull the books out and send you the wiring diagram.
