Question about 2002 Harley Davidson FLSTS Heritage Springer
It was running fine, we stoped so a buddy could fuel up i turned it off. Now it wont start
Typically, the first stop in a motorcycle
electrical harness is the start solenoid. I would confirm the battery is fully
charged with a volt/ohm meter, then continue to the start solenoid. You should
have power at the battery side (large, heavy terminal) all the time. You will
discover there are on all the time circuits and on only
when the switch is on circuits. Follow the on all the
time until you find a fault or you run out the other end of the
circuit. Next check the circuit that is on when the switch is
on. I think you will discover there is no power coming from the switch (which
should get its power from the hot side of the solenoid) because I suspect your
switch. If you have power coming back to the solenoid from the switch, and other
lines continue until you find your fault.

Take the leads off the battery and clean the mating surfaces with a wire brush and reinstall. Check all the grounds are tight. Put the battery on a charger on low overnight to get the voltage back to at least 12.5V and then try again. If you don't have a charger, they are under $20 at Walmart. If the starter still does not attempt to turnover, try jump to the battery positive terminal. If the starter turns over then, you know it is in the starter switching system. If not, starter?

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,

Check your batt. cables good, especi ally the terminal ends. Pull and twist them to make sure they aren't almost burnt or worn into. This same thing happened to my nephew's 1200 Sportster. Pos. cable was almost completely into INSIDE the insulation near the battery terminal.

It sounds like you've either got an internal short in the battery, a bad connection at the battery or along the main power circuit, or the main circuit breaker or fuse is blown.
First, take the battery out of the bike and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them if they can load test the battery for you. Just because a volt meter says a battery is good does mean that it is. A volt meter does not put a load on the battery.
If it is good, reinstall the battery. Using you volt meter, test for voltage on the backside of your ignition swith with the switch off. If you find voltage on one wire, turn the switch on and see if you have voltage on the others. If so, your problem could be most anywhere and you'll need a schematic to find it.
If you have no voltage at the switch, go back to the fuse box. There should be either a 30 amp circuit breaker or fuse somewhere under the plate. Test for voltage on both sides of whatever device you find.
