Hi Anonymous, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12 volts or better after charging.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor. Good luck

SOURCE: Fuel Pump(EFI)and lights non-functional, ignition o.k.

They do have the scanalyzer and it also has the ability of resetting your ECM back to operating condition. By default there is a tamper device in the ignition that will disable the bike. To my knowledge you must take it to a dealer to have the computer reset. The reason being is if you could DIY then there would be no reason to have the anti - theft device. Sorry for the bad news but you are right on target with whaat is wrong. Now for a work around in the meantime, perhaps you can buy a electric fuel pump and hard wire it from your battery, bypass the factory electronic one and use the new one until you can get the bike to the shop for the quick fix. It only takes them a few minutes to fix it. I would take your registration and proof of ownership because they are mandated by law to verify you are the owner. At least where I live they must do it.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Replaced battery, bike cranked, after riding 4 miles, just ticks

check battery leads (both ends) , Then make sure battery is charged 100% (verry important) Get out your (Digital) volt meter set it to DC volts Connect leads to the Battery, it should have at least 12.6 v , Watch meter and start engine, if meter drops below 10.0 volts your battery may be weak and will have to be replaced, or your starter is'nt mechanicaly efficient and will have to be fixed or replaced. While engine is running note voltage should be 12.6-13v volts, then rev engine to 3000 RPM , meter should read 13.5- 15 vdc. If not you have a problem with your stator or regulator/rectifier.

Check your relay for the fuel pump, make sure you are getting power to fuel pump connector (outside of tank). Check for fuel flow when pump is on, ( remove tank to fuel rail line from intake side)be carefull this results in a good fuel stream that may go everywhere. Oh yeah and no smoking. Hope this heps as it sounds like the pump is not getting poweror you have a blockage somewhere.

Fuse keeps blowing in battery fuse 15 amp, no lights 2009 FLHR Road King


Hi, Bruce you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below, and for specific information or questions, please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com. Good luck and have a nice day.

Hi, my alternator is not charging the battery, I have a 2009 Kia Carnival. The belt operating the alternator is not broken. My battery is completely drained (flat). When I turn ignition on, all lights


I would be getting the alternator checked out first, faulty relays are not something I have had problems with in the past, so I would go with the alternator, unless your battery is duff, don't forget a battery can be fine the last time you use the car and then it just goes dead. I would suggest you try a charged battery first and check when the engine is running that the ignition lights are all out, if not then change the alternator

The car does not crank or start. The battery is new . The starter works if bypassed at the solenoid but the car runs only a few seconds. The security light flashes. Both keys are the same. Ideas?


If security is flashing, that is your problem. You have VATS, which fortunately has a relatively simple bypass of the ignition switch (I assume the problem is in the steering column). The solution is here: http://vats.likeabigdog.com/ . I have used this successfully in the past. You need some resistors, an ohmmeter, and a soldering gun/iron to do this fix. Let me know if you have questions.

My engine light on my 01 road king comes on & off every few seconds. Running great though. What could be the problem???


That flashing light is a indicator of the security system, I added some lighting to the rear of my 04 Roadking, and ever since, the same light flashes, it is tied to the security system.
Mine has been like this for 3 years, LOL. Runs great, I know that I caused the problem by rewiring my rear wiring harness.

My Nikon SB-600 speedlight seems to have died - only had it 2 years. Could it be because of battery leakage - I found some suspicious looking wet-stuff inside the case. Batteries haven't been there that...


You may be lucky because the battery acid may not have gone beyond the contacts in the battery chamber: open battery chamber and clean out especially at the bottom of the chamber and blow out any loose stuff when you finished cleaning ( use pencil erazor or something similar , but do not use sand paper or anything that will damage chrome plating of the contacts ; you do not want corrosion at later stage ).
