SOURCE: keeps burning the coil

This is strange. I've been working on Harley's for almost 40 years and I've only run into two bad coils on the later model bikes. Are you using original equipment coils? If so, are you using the correct ones?

Coils come in different varieties for different uses. There are coils made for racing, road use, electronic ignitions, and points type ignitions. The coil you want is for road use with electronic ignition. If you use a digital volt ohm meter and test the resistance of the primary winding of the coil, it should check out at between 3 and 4 ohms. The "primary" winding is the coil of wire inside the coil that goes from one small terminal to the next. Put your DVOM leads on the small terminals, one lead on each terminal, with the meter in "R x 1" position. It should read between 3 and 4 ohms.

This sounds like a circuit breaker tripping. If you have a short somewhere, the circuit breaker will break with an audible click. When it cools off in a few seconds, it will reset. If the short circuit is still present, it will immediately trip again making the same clicking noise. You need to find out which breaker it is and trace the short. I don't think the starter relay is under the tank but if this is it, the relay is making a tick but the engine is not starting, you need a new relay.

Good Luck

What is causing my coil packs to burn out and melt repetitively on my jeep liberty 03?


for coils to burn or melt indicates excessive current flow through them
have voltage checks done wiring as there may be a problem in the ignition module that is allowing excessive current to the packs

Are you getting spark? I know this seems obvious but check the kill switch if this particular model has one.

Red oil light does not come on before starting


Instrument bulb burned out. Bad sensor also possible, but unlikely.
