2012 Road Glide Ultra. 16k miles. w Thunder max ECM. Throwing code U1040. What is it and what is the solution?

U1040 = Loss of ABS serial data

Does the "CHECK ENGINE" light stay on?
If not, then it's a "HISTORIC" code (not current).

Clear the code and see if it comes back, as it might have just been a glitch.

Ch eck engine light

Hold the trip button on the speedo down while turning on the ignition. The gauges should sweep,and a "PSSP" should come up on the odometer. Click once to highlight each number,then hold in for a couple seconds,and it will flash the code numbers for you. Right these numbers down,and we will go from there.

Engine cycles bike starts,engine light comes back on and I have no throttle, been trying to troubleshoot, need advise, it a 2008 streetglide

Cycle the ingition off for 10 seconds and on for 30 3 times. This will reset system. Mine just did the same this weekend. I got an engine light after, so the bike will be trailered to the shop tuesday. Sometimes you don't get the engine light which means you are ok. This was advice from the dealer that worked for me. I will keep you posted on the end result. It has something to do with the choke. It is a safety feature so you don't mess up engine.

Engine lite comes on after bike is started for about 4 sec.

This is the Oil Light?

I would think this is ok so long as it goes out in such a short time. Are you uding the proper grade and viscosity of oil for your motorcycle? Heavier oil will take a little longer to build pressure and put the light out.

If you are still concerned, speak with your Harley Service Manager. Costs nothing to ask him or her a question.

Does anyone know how to program the keyless remote for a 2008 harley davidson street glide please help

The HD alarm is REALLY complicated. 10 pages in the manual. I'd have the dealer order you an owner's manual for about $20. If you just can't start the bike, one long push on the remote sets it and 2 quick clicks turn it off.

08 Street Glide install bub full exh with crossover, eliminate o2 sensors and install power commander and add o2 sensor electric caps,Check engine lite is on

Your check engine light is on because you are not providing the proper signal that used to come from the oxygen sensors. Install the sensors in your new exhaust (yes, drill it and put them back in), then connect the wiring correctly and it will work.
