Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections check negative cable at both ends. (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.
7. Security alarm not disarming

SOURCE: 2001 H-D Road King engine knock

01road king..probably have 30 to 40 thousand on it...Sounds like cam chain tensioner..about the only thing that will go wrong with your bike. I will assume you have oil etc in it...If you have not been running your bike stupid then nothing mechanical will usually brake on a Harley. Once again I assume its stock. You don't have an oil light on so I'll put my money on cam chain tensioner has exploded or is about to.

SOURCE: bike wont start/turnover neutral light goes out

Did the starter work when it was jumped by a car battery? If so, the problem is probably the battery in the bike. Take the battery to an automotive parts house and have it tested. Usually, they'll test the battery for free.

What is the CCA of your battery? Those big engines are hard to start and you may not have a battery with enough "Cold Cranking Amps" to turn the engine over. The old Harley Sprint (1973 & '74) was notorious for this. You really had to have a strong battery in that bike for he electric starter to work.

Some bikes have wiring that disables the starter if the transmission is not in neutral. Check on this as well.

SOURCE: Hear a slight knocking sound coming from engine.

take it back to that mechanic and have him look at your rods. or it could be a matter of no lube to the upper part of the motor. Give the oil a change and see if that fixes it. if not have the rods looked at.

Whining humming noise under hood


If the engine is not reaching optimum operating temperature it will indeed give you a "check engine light",the code will lean you in that direction as well.The noise your hearing more than likely is coming from the "clutch fan",they are very common on the TrailBlazers to make noise and fail.The oil light... you certainly need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage.

My check engine light is on. Advance Auto Parts says it is the PO 325 Knock Sensor Malfunction Bnk 1 or Single Sensor. My Subaru is a 1996 Impreza. I also have a fast blinking left turn signal that...


  1. Knock sensor. Check all the wiring connections on the engine heads. Your sensor probably is failed (but see Overheating #3 below) .
  2. fast blinking left turn signal. The front bulb has failed, so replace it.
  3. oil temperature light. This may be an indirect result of #1, as the engine is not running properly and this can cause overheating (but see Overheating #3 below)
Other causes of overheating ...
  1. low oil level
  2. low coolant level. If you are losing coolant, the cause has to be located. The correct fill method is to top up the radiator, then repeatedly squeeze the top rad hose, to "burp" all the air out of the cooling system. You will hear the coolant squishing in the top of the engine. Keep burping until the coolant squishing noise stops.
  3. head gasket(s) may be failing, a not uncommon problem for your engine model. Check for oil in the coolant.

OIL LIGHT ON AND OFF AFTER ENGINE WARM UP ENGINE KNOCKS AFTER WARM UP 20W50 OIL IN NOW OIL IS NOT LOW.B WHEN ENGINE IS FIRST STARTED RUNS LIKE A DREAM THEN STARTS MAKING NOISE AND OIL LIGHT COME ON AT IDLE...


First of all , change your oil pressure sender . It should be easy to do and relatively inexpensive. See if that fixes the oil light going on and off. If the light stays on after that , turn off the bike and replace the oil pump. If you have a bad oil pump and continued to drive the bike , you may have caused serious damage to the motor and may end up having to disassemble the engine to determine the cause of the knock.

The engine oil lamp won't go off after ignition key is turned on, and the thing won't start. (i'm guessing the first error indicator is the reason for the second) but.. What is the issue?


Oil light stays on until oil pressure rises enough. Engine temp light should come on when key is turned on and then go off after 3-5 seconds. Wait till temp light goes off and then press starter button but DO NOT open throttle. Bike should start if there are no other problems and oil light should go off after engine starts. If you open throttle, engine may not start.

The engines turns vigorously when I press the Start button, but won't run. There is plenty of fuel, the spark plugs were renewed about 3,500 miles ago [when it was serviced by a n HD dealer]. I have...


If the starter turns the engine over, there's nothing wrong with the starter relay, the solenoid, or the starter. The reason your engine won't run is it has no spark for some reason. I'm afraid that this is all I can tell you. For some reason, the system is not firing the spark plugs. Check the fuse. I hope this helps but I must confess that I don't know a lot about Harley's new electronic system after 2000. I work on the older bike that don't have this system.

Good Luck

Engine knocking on toyota corolla after replacing damaged sump


oil pan and sump damage are very likely to lead to oil distribution problems, this is not temporary, if you hear a knock have it checked by a local mechanic who can verify it for you, it is possible that the engine is damaged internally.
