The alternator could be draining the battery or the cables may not be connected right.

SOURCE: 2001 H-D Road King engine knock

01road king..probably have 30 to 40 thousand on it...Sounds like cam chain tensioner..about the only thing that will go wrong with your bike. I will assume you have oil etc in it...If you have not been running your bike stupid then nothing mechanical will usually brake on a Harley. Once again I assume its stock. You don't have an oil light on so I'll put my money on cam chain tensioner has exploded or is about to.

SOURCE: i have a 2001 road king i want to know if there

FLHP & FLIPI, one is carb the other is fuel injected.
The fuel filter is inside the tank on both carb and FI models.
From what I have read, there may have been a recall on this model year, where they replace the fuel filter and clean or replace the injectors.
A quick call to an HD dealer service department would let you know positively. And cost nothing.

SOURCE: Full battery charge, all fuses good...turn

Check the main fuse.It is a flat fuse (30a) and plugs into the top of the starter solenoid. There should be a spare fuse on the rubber solenoid mount. Remove the fuse out.Then wait for 5 minutes and then reinsert the fuse back.Its on the start relay near battery on red cable, two screws hold it in.The fuse box should be located under the seat by the battery.The fuse IS required in order to start it, because the current that runs to the starter button and then to the solenoid coil DOES run through the fuse. So if the fuse is dead, your starter will be dead. ------------So check the fuse if its bad, blown, shorted then replace the fuse.But if the fuse is fine then remove it for 5 minutes then reinsert it.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: What is causing 2005 flhrsi road king custom speedometer to malfunction.

Hi,
Check first the FUSES, clean the terminals of the fuse and replace if already blown.
The intermitent location of the speedo means a trickle of voltage going into the system. The malfunction came when your charging the battery w/o removing the terminals.
Check and clean the harness connection.
Tell me if there is some more problem.

SOURCE: how to check charging system on road king 2003

Easiest way is to either remove the seat to gain access to the battery or use the Battery Tender harness, if the bike is equipped with one. Use a multiimeter, set to DC volts. Place the positive meter electrode to the positive terminal of the battery or tender harness. Place the other electrode to negative terminal. At idle the bike should have 12.8-13.2 volts DC. Rev the bike to approx. 2000 rpm. Meter reading should be around 13.8-14.2 volts DC. If you don't get close to these readings, the charging system isn't working. Easiest way to check to see if your stator is burned-remove the clutch (derby) cover and smell the oil inside the primary housing. If it stinks, your stator is bad.

After sitting for a while I can get about 2 normal sounding cranks when I turn the key and then nothing. I still have power so I don't have a clue. It started when my wife pulled out of the driveway...


no ,you dont have power.
the battery uses 100 to 500 amps to run the starter.
normal is 100amps , on warm day. really the starter is the ACID test of any battery.
the ignition uses 5 amps. (nothing) same with lamps. trivial currents.
the battery is not charged, , so charge it. or...
if the battery is bad , it will not take a charge and hold 12.6volts.
try a known good and charged battery in car. that work?
yes?
then either the battery was bad, or you left on lamps?
or the charge system failed and battery drained.
bad cranking 101
1: bad battery.
2: discharged battery (or any reason)
3: bad battery connetions, corroded lugs.
4: charge system failure.
5: phantom drain (dark current) or left on lamps over night.
1: put in fresh good battery.
2: start car, is voltage across battery terms near 14.7v?
yes, good charge system.
no?, its 12.5v, charge system is dead.

My 2008 silverado won't start battery is charged


No, it isn't an ignition issue.

Check power to the starter motor solenoid.
If this is getting power when cranking, then the issue is with the starter motor solenoid or starter motor. Replace.

2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound


many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

Acer aspire one D255 will not charge


You don't have a real serious problem. Just use the Power Cord. Now if the Power Cord does not work, that's a real problem. If your power cord is good and you can use your laptop with it, then the problem is your battery is bad if it will not take a charge. It's time for you to buy a new battery.

Battery fully charged, bike turned on after, but on 2nd try after couple of hours, no power


Based on what you've said here I would say that either the battery is incapable of maintaining a charge or something is draining the battery. To test to see if something is draining it, disconnect the positive cable and put an ameter between the cable and the battery to see what current is being 'used' when the ignition switch is off. It should read ZERO amps. If there is current flowing then something is draining the battery - pull fuses to find the culprit. If the drain shows ZERO amps then it's possible the battery is tired and needs to be replaced. Motorcycle batteries don't usually last more than a few years.

I hope this helped. Sorry for any typos.

78 ford f150 I turn the key, i here the solenoid click and all power in truck is killed. i could wait a few minutes and disconnecdt the negative battery cable and the power would be back. After several...


Are you sure your battery is good and able to take and keep a full charge? The only thing in the start circuit that could cause a big drain on the battery is a shorted starter. But if you can send power and it cranks okay, I don't think you have a bad starter.

Is the ignition key on when you crank it and have no spark? Does your distributor rotor turn when the engine is cranking?

I would try a new solenoid. If it clicks it should send power on to the starter on the big cable. Make sure all battery and ground connections are clean and tight. If still a problem, buy a voltmeter and learn how to do voltage drop tests. This will help find bad connections.

Had it charging and the screen went red...can't turn it off now..


Kill the power. By removing the power cord and battery underneath . (assuming its a laptop since it was charging :) ) After a fresh reboot if you are still have problem let me know and I'll se if I can get you squared away.

I have a 1984 dodge D150, not charging, battery is good,charges with charger\r\ntruck starts and runs pretty good,but is running off of battery, NEW altenater,regulator,and belts belts are tight,replaced...


The first thing you need to do is stop wasting your money by replacing parts. Then get a volt-ohm meter and a test light to test the circuits between the battery, the alternator, the ignition switch, the starter relay and the voltage regulator. (a.k.a. Charging System Circuits)

To start, the "B+" or "BATT" terminal on the alternator (large black wire) MUST have a solid, direct connection to the battery. Check for the proper voltage here. Then, the red wire on the alternator at the "F2" terminal should be HOT at all times. If not, you probably still have a bad fuse link that you missed. The "F1" terminal on the alternator (Light Green wire) is known as your "FIELD" wire. It comes from the "IG" terminal at the voltage regulator. It should be hot any time the key is in the ON position. If not, your voltage regulator is not working or your ignition switch is not providing power to the regulator. Finally, The "F" terminal (Red wire) at the regulator should be hot any time the ignition switch is in the ON position. This actually gets it's power from the starter relay, which gets its power from the ignition switch.
