Thats not a problem, thats exactly what its supposed to do. After you start yer bike, the engine light should come on for about 5 seconds and then go out. Thats how they are designed. If that occurs, u are A - OK!

Saturn LS1 2000 wants to start but won't


The fab key activates the security system in the car, the ignition pass lock may need to be reset to your ignition key's. It Takes about 30 min to do. Try resetting the pass lock to read your ignition keys. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK. Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Good luck and hope this helps. The ignition keys has a resistor value for the ignition to read and after a few years the resistance may change and the Pass Lock has a had time reading it's value so you have to reset the pass lock to read the keys again.

Head light & spot lights quit working.


Check if there's (live + (positive) current coming to the headlight and the spot light once you turn them 'on' .
If theres no live (current) there thn the switch could be faulty, remove the switch and you can also check over there the live (current) to the input terminal of the switch and after tht operate the switch and check if theres current passing thro to the required wire for the head light and the spot light.
If theres no current to the switch thn you have to trace it back to the fuse box and finally to the battery .
Hope this helps.

Breakers keep kicking off when starting 2000 Harley Sport XLHC


Battery connections have been the leading cause of what you've described. Turn the key, everythings in order, then contact! Instead of potato potato, it's just "click" and lights out. If this sounds familiar, check that battery is tight. Grounds are netorius for coming loose due to sporty vibrations.
