Hi Michaelford2, you may need an alarm reset, and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or damaged battery.
2. Loose, corroded or broken battery cable.
3. Alternator not charging or below normal rates.
4. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
5. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Water or dirt in fuel system, carburetor or filter.
8. Fuel tank vent system plugged or gas cap not venting.
9. Fuel tank empty.
10. Fuel valve vacuum line broken or carburator vent line closed off.
11. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
12. Failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.

SOURCE: Engine light on/off sporadically while riding.

You don't have that on a 2002. Do you have a power commander on it? Sounds typical of the older style power commander ( IIIr ) one thing to pay attention to is does it do it under load? If it's not showing any historic codes and the bike rides fine, and you have a power commander 3r I wouldn't worry. It's normal. The older power commander lies to the ecm. Sometimes it gets confused and kind of glitches ( that's where the light comes from ) but if it has running issues to I would take it to a shop to find out what the codes are and go from there.

Most of the time when you have this sort of problem it is the coil. But if you are loosing all electrical it is not the coil. But if it is just loosing power and dieing then it is the coil. If it is loosing all electrical then it has to be somewhere in the ignition switch. You will have a hot wire going to the ignition switch that is hot all the time. Then you will have a wire that is hot when the key is on. Follow that wire down and it will be shorting somewhere when the engine heats up.

Could be a coil, spark plug wires or maybe you blew the gasket around the intake manifold and you're sucking cold air.

Broken fuse inside fuse box

To remove it you need to cut the main power supply by disconnecting the negative battery terminal. Then use something like a needle nose pliers or tweezers to remove the broken fuse. Replace with new fuse with correct amperage. Reconnect battery terminal.

Check the transformer. Remove the thermostat face and use a voltmeter to check for 24vac between the R terminal and the C terminal. If it's not there check for power on the transformers primary and secondary sides. Replace the transformer if you have power on the primary and none on the secondary. If you don't have any on the primary you should look for a fuse or another circuit breaker.

Bike is running fine - then it is like a cut off switch hits and the bike looses all power. 2003 FLHTCI with a 106", ported, polished heads and throttle bodies, TTS ignition and dyno at 117 hp and 114 lb...

Have you added any additional accessories to the bike? If so, you could have raised the total current requirement of the bike with everything running. This could cause the main breaker to trip. Although I'm thoroughly familiar with your model of bike, Harley usually uses a breaker for the main circuit protection then going to fuses for individual circuit protection. If the main breaker is rated at 30 amps and you're drawing a constant 28, almost anything could change temporarily to cause you to exceed the 30 amp rating of the circuit breaker. A circuit breaker uses a bi-metal strip that heats up and breaks the circuit. It usually takes just a little while for the bi-metal strip to cool and then "reset" the circuit.

The next time it does this, notice if he headlight goes out. If it's the main breaker, the light will go out. If not, you're dealing with something that is smaller although just as aggreviating. You'll have to try to figure out what is still working when the bike quits. I think you have several fuses that are labeled what they control like the ignition, lights, and whatever else. Notice which circuits are still working to determine what circuit is not working. Being no fuses are blowing, it's not a short circuit, it's a momentary open circuit or an intentional electrical shutdown to protect something.

Good Luck

My 2000 Ultra Classic when riding the power goes completely out, engine and all. The run is about 20 to 30 minutes when everything stops. This doesn not happen on all runs. I wait about 2 minutes and...

When you're saying "everything stops", do you mean everything electrical stops? If that's the case and it restarts in about two minutes, it sounds like something is tripping your main circuit breaker. I do not have a schematic for your bike but it has to be something that is not protected by the smaller fuses. If it were, the fuse would blow before the main tripped out. The main circuit breaker should be located right there with your other fuses. It'll be a metal can like device about a half inch wide, a half inch tall, and about an inch long. It should be 30-40 amps rated. Whatever the rating is, do not change it as it's designed to protect your wiring harness. It may have just gotten weak and needs to be replaced but this is rare. Have you added anything electrical lately? This could be just enough to "trip it over the edge".

Good Luck

When the bike is hot and crusising along a street the electrics will die and the bike comes to a dead stop. No ignition, the spedometer sticks at 28mph. I let the bike sit for 5 minutes then it starts and...

So, you didn't hit the "kill swith". LOL Ok.

It sounds like something is tripping your main circuit breaker. A circuit breaker will act like that. When something shorts out, it will cause a high current draw which causes the element in the circuit breaker to heat up and trip. Once it trips, it takes a few minutes for it to cool but once it cools, it resets itself. I prefer this to a fuse which blows and then you've got to have a replacement. If you don't have a replacement, you're just stuck there until you find one.

Now, you may have a short which is not unusual on a dresser since there are so many wires running to the front end under the fairing. Look for a bare wire right where the wires go into the fairing from the frame. There is a lot of flexing motion at that point and a high probablility of a wire rubbed bare.

Have you added any extra accessories to the bike? If so, you may have overloaded the main circuit. Seems that bike has a 30 amp main breaker in it. If you added another set of highway lights or something like that, you may have exceeded the maximum current handling capability of the wiring harness and the breaker is tripping to protect the harness.

If you have a wiring diagram, check for devices that run off the main breaker only. The rest of the stuff should have it's own fuses and if you're not blowing any of those, it sounds like something on the main breaker alone.

Check the chrome cover that covers your igniton coil. I've seen them come loose, fall down onto the coil and short the igniton out as well. When the engine stops running. the thing will move and unshort the short.

Good Luck

2000 silverado a/c only works on high fan speed. Blows ice cold. But lowering fan speed, or adding heat to adjust temperature causes compressor to cut out.

Hi! The blower resistor is the culprit here,located on passenger side of vehicle under glove box area. I have replaced several of these for the same problem. You also need to check the connector for the resistor for heat damage to terminals and replace as needed. The harness will come with wiring attatched and heat shrink **** splice sleeves. hope you find this information useful!

Are you getting 120 vac or 220 vac at the unit? Check the voltage at the first terminals inside the unit as well as the breaker. You should have 220 vac at the elements and you are dropping a leg some where.

My RCCD unit sometimes trips when I turn my main oven on

I'm assuming you are speaking of the line circuit breaker to the stove. If that is the case and there are ** other problems that you k**w of, it is possible that the breaker has gone bad....they do. Get the same brand and rating as you had originally installed. Cut your main feed and open the terminal panel and remove and replace the unit. Restart main feed and set breaker on. If you continue to have issues, check all wiring to your stove...a loose wire or corroded contact point may be a second issue.
