Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic

1 Answer

Adding electrical accessories to my '07 FLSTC

Ok, so I had a few things hooked up to my bike...I wired them straight to the battery. Turns out the screws at the positive and negative terminals were kinda short, so the more stuff I had installed, the less thread that made it into the whole...thus causing the battery to lose connectivity..thus causing me to have problems that I could not figure out, which then meant taking my baby to the dealer....suffice it to say all of my extras (not many really, only like 4 things) were disconnected and put in a zip loc bag. I was informed that there is a port or harness, or whatever to make connections to the positive terminal without hooking up all my accessories directly to it. What in God's name does it look like? About where would I find it? And, is it going to require anything more than either getting some connectors or some soldering?

The easy way is simply get longer bolts. I generally don't like to have stuff wired directly to the battery and prefer to go through the fuse box. Connect your positive lead from the hot side of one fuse by your preferred method (solder is good if you have space for it), connect your ground to the frame somewhere.

Unplugged module on rear guard, now bike wont start

Think of it this way bike is designed to shut down when tampered with. Disconnect battery overnight use up any electricity on board by headlight. In morning do not play with anything except hooking up battery and should work. Call a dealer. My key fob factory alarm was weak so the dealer put in new fob battery. I don't know if there was a fob reset. 25254473-4qzs3n2k2rff1yxe3x3ajped-5-0.jpg

Connecting battery tender to 2011 FLSTC

Hook the leads up to the battery and run the plug out the right side of the bike (this side is "up" when the bike is on the jiffystand). Makes it easier to find the plug. I ran the lead behind the top of the oil tank on my '04 FLSTF. Zip tie the wire to the frame of the bike, being careful to stay away from moving parts. Basically, put the plug where it will be convenient for you and will not be damaged. Good luck!

2011 FLSTC accessory wiring diagram

Hi Kevin, this is an easy fix, right behind the battery is a black plastic box, the cover slides up and off accessing your fuses. Just splice the positive wire from the power point into an outbound wire from the ignition or light fuse. For a free wiring diagram, please visit the website below. Good luck and have nice day.

Harley FLSTI 2006 all electric power switched off

It sounds like the main circuit breaker is tripping for some reason. This is the way a circuit breaker works. When the maximum current flow rating of the circuit breaker is exceeded, it will trip and break the circuit stopping all current flow. After a few seconds, it will reset itself. If the max current flow is exceeded again, it will do the same thing.

Have you added any additional accessories to your bike, lights, radio, cigarette lighter power point, etc.? If so, disable everything and see if this eliminates the problem. Then start adding them back into the circuit one at a time until the problem resurfaces. If this proves to be the problem, you've overloaded the current handling capacity of the bikes wiring. You'll have to let something go in order to reduce the load. Do Not Install A Higher Rated Circuit Breaker as you will burn you wiring harness up.

Good Luck

Electrical problem

The best way to troubleshoot an electrical problem is to return the bike to it's original condition and get everything to work like that. Then (using the correct instructions) reinstall the accessories one at a time making sure each part works before going on to the next one.
The "extra" wires probably are not extra. They may be the ground wires, Honda dosen't ground anything through the frame. Be sure you (or the person installing accessories) knows how to work with electric components.
