Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Classic Motorcycles

1 Answer

1997 HD FLSTF Fatboy : With Ignition switch turned to ignition, (I get 12V at the ignition side of the switch), I can start the bike however, the only accessories that work are the headlight, tailligh

If the switch is the culprit, why is it that when the ignition switch is in the ignition position and 12V is present at that side of the switch that most accessories are inoperable?

Hi Harley97flst, remove seat and directly behind the battery is a black plastic box. The cover slides up and off revealing the starter relay and the system/fuel pump relay for you injected folks and the various assorted circuit fuses, for a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck.

SOURCE: bike wont start..possible electrical

I am assuming you checked to make sure the battery is charged? When my ignitions switch went bad it showed signs of failure first I had to jiggle the key to get it to work. That being said it could be the switch, it is a very simple change and if you get an after market switch not that expensive. The Harley switch is $40.00 I got an after market for around $15.00.

SOURCE: My 2007 HD sportster nightster is not starting.

I have had the same problem. Been throught two batteries, new cables,checked the fuses 999 times. It only starts every now and then. You must take a wrench and get the positve cable just right and it will start for a week or so then back to the same thing. You would think after building motors for so long Harley could at least make a bike that starts.

Starter will not turn over not even when jumping just clicks any ideas


Joe, the power travel from the batterie to the relay switch, from there to the ignition key from the ignition key to the start switch from the start switch to the starter. If the batterie is in good shape(12.8V) the problem could be between those 3 points. Another one, a 12 year old starter could be also a problem. It's not easy to remove the starter, but if you can please check brushes and continuity, this is 600$ piece, try to do yourself(if you can) and you will save money.

Everytime i turn my key nothing happens my battery is good car wont start and i was told it was a wire not gettin jucie to the starter to kick over


sounds like the ignition switch contacts have packed up in the ignition switch ,fit a push button type switch so its by passed the ignition switch ,pick up a 12v supply from ignition switch ignition on side ,then to switch then to starter solonoid ,although you can wire it through a relay if you want to be professional

Engine light


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!
