Question about 2005 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom

2 Answers

Replaced old battery and put in a new one and as soon as I hooked up the battery the fuse for the batter blew right away. I tried to replace the fuse and automatically blew the new one. Trying to figure out where the feed back is coming from.

    Where do I start? Do I pull all the wiring from the harness and see if there are any bare wires? Where and what do I disconnect first?

40 amp. fuse keeps blowing out on 2008 harley


You have a short. Check the insulation on all wiring that carries + voltage - possible that some wire may have lost insulation and is abutting some metal part shorting it out.

Replaced horn fuse and it blew again right away this is a pontiac transport 1997 help


The fuse blows to prevent wire melting and eventual fire! If it blows straight away then there will be a short circuit somewhere in the circuit, which means the electricity is going from the battery positive to the fuse then straight back to the battery negative without any resistance. You would have to follow the wiring and test components until the fuse no longer blows. :)

At a guess, I'd say that you have got the new battery in back to front. This means that you are hooking the earth wires to the Positive side of the battery.

Harley Davidson Wiring Diagrams and Schematics
Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and connect it to the power side of the, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, start by tracking the out bound wire towards the ignition switch and beyond if necessary, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website above. Good luck and have nice day.

Its the amp, do not put any more fuses in it
you need to get it checked out by a technician.

Its probably a power supply fault or blown output devices.

Hope this helps

Wiper fuse blows as soon as you insert one


first....be sure the fuse is the right ampage. second...if the ampage is correct, and it still blows, do the following. Disconnect the ground-side of your battery. Attached test lamp to ground-side of battery. Take probe end of test lamp and touch anypart of the motor body frame. If the test lamp (DOES NOT LIGHT UP), you have an electrical short. Recommend OBD (On-board Diagnostic) analysis test.
