Neutral switch won't work on 2008 FLHRC harley

Have replaced neutral switch. There does not seem to be any power getting to the switch. I have downloaded a workshop manual, but are not sure where the power for the neutral switch comes from.

    I downloaded a 1450 page Harley workshop manual which includes wiring diagrams. Very hard to follow. I do not want to short anything out by testing.

Try unplugging the Neutral switch and on the switch itself test the continuity with the bike in neutral and then in gear. You should read OFL in every gear and less than 1 OHM with it in neutral. If that all checks out let me know, ill try to help further.

    Thank you. I tried what you suggested. I think from checking from all angles it must be the LED indicator bar. I was able to start the bike in any gear, but since replacing neutral switch it will only start if it's in neutral. When I short out the neutral switch it will start in any gear.

    That sounds like the way it's supose to work, but you didn't say if you could start it by pulling the clutch also.

If I am to understand you correctly, you're asking whether it would be more beneficial to get a workshop manual, which would generally cover a wider range of models and years, or the manual for a particular bike, and my advice is to get the factory service manual for your particular year and model. Or if you're just wondering where to get a manual, they're available from a local H.D. dealer or by mail from an out of town dealer if you don't happen to have a local shop.

Hoestly the instructions that I got with mine do nothing to help you anyway. The hardest part on my Ultra were the ones under the wiring harness. They are a pain to get to. Not much else i can tell you- sorry

Check your pick-up sensor located inside the timing cover,behind the adjustor plate. If the filament is not intact you will have no spark.
A defective coil, cam position sensor, or stator will also cause a no spark condition.

Good luck, i hope this will FixYa and get your bike back on the road.

2008 hd road king classic headlights wont work

Hi Anonymous, you need to get out your test light and find the short and start by making sure the battery has 12 volts or more and clean tight connections especially the ground cable at both ends. If your issues involves lights always check the bulbs for broken filiments and fuses first. Then start at the socket and work your way towards the handlebar switches checking each wiring harness connector for corroded, broken or loose pins and remember dielectric grease is your friend. Check the switches for continuity and work your way towards the ignition switch and check it for continuity. Keep working your way to the fuses and circuit breaker and finally the battery.

I've been having trouble starting my 2008 FLHRC recently...battery has plenty of power but when I go to start the bike...once I press the ignition alarm starts to flash...there's no clicki

Sounds like you have an anti-theft system interfering with your ignition. I don't have experience with that model bike or any manuals on that bike so that is the most help I can give.
