Check all of you fuzes. Sometime a blown minor fuze can really be hard to diagnose.

What trouble code 23 is on a 2007 sportster 883. think thats the code, turn signals blink left 2 times right 3 times


For a 2007, that's not an error code.
Seems as if your disabler is activating.
The key fob for the security system needs a clear signal to the module to disarm the bike. That's why the flashers turn on. If the fob is at the bike, the security module has lost it's memory, the battery needs replacing, or the antenna for the key fob reception is not connected. You also need to squeeze the clutch lever to allow the engine to engage also...new safety feature i think for 07.

To actually get to the diagnosis mode (to read error codes):

1- Turn motorcycle ignition switch to OFF & Run/Stop switch to RUN.
Push odometer reset button in & hold.
Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release odometer reset button. Background lighting will illuminate, speedometer needle should sweep its full range and indicator lamps (battery, security, low fuel, check engine and cruise) should illuminate. The word "diag" should then appear.
Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPt" with the first P flashing.

2- Push odometer reset button in & hold.
3- Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release odometer reset button. Background lighting will illuminate, speedometer needle should sweep its full range and indicator lamps (battery, security, low fuel, check engine and cruise) should illuminate. The word "diag" should then appear.
4 - Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPt" with the first P flashing.
5 - Each letter represents an area of the diagnostics module. The module that is flashing is the one you are going to check. To move from one letter (module) to the next, you push the odometer reset button one time. (from P to S to SP to t and back to P, etc.)
P = ECM/ICM (Electronic Control Module [EFI] / Ignition Control Module [Carburetor])
S = TSM/TSSM (Turn Signal/ Turn Signal Security Module)
SP = speedometer
T = tachometer
6 - To get the DTC in an area of diagnostics, push and hold the odometer reset button in for 5 seconds and release. If there are any DTC's the code will be displayed or the word "none" will appear if there are no DTC's. Push the odometer reset button again to view additional codes if they exist.
7 - Record the codes.
8 - If DTC's are not to be cleared, Press and release the odometer reset button. Part number of module will be displayed. NOTE: To determine if a code is current or historic, clear the displayed code by pushing in and holding the odometer reset button ( longer than 5 seconds) until 'clear' comes up. Release the odometer reset button. Turn OFF the ignition switch. Run your bike and shut it down then recheck the DTC's again by repeating steps 1 to 9. If the code is current it will reappear.
9 - Press and release the odometer reset button to continue to the next module.
10 - Turn Ignition switch to OFF.
On models not equipped with a tachometer "No Rsp" will appear when the tachometer identifier is selected.
"No Rsp" will also appear if the run/off switch is in the off position when doing this procedure.


The actual error codes will appear (format) as "P0374", for example.

Different fuse. Check the fuse block located just behind your battery. Just pull the cover off and slide out the main fuse block, the very bottom one is blown if the starter wont turn over.

2000 harley sportster 883,speedometer wont work


If you're lucky it might be the Sensor. This is located in the top of the gearbox casing just below the starter. This is a hall effect device and as such is magnetic. It can pick up metal fragments from inside the gearbox. Its held in by a single screw. It can be a bit fiddly to remove. Take it out and remove any debris from the magnetic body.
If not the sensor, then it would probably be best to substitute in a working speedo. Be careful though because the speedo post 2004 is not compatible (after that the bike has a computer). Make sure any replacement speedo is 1995 to 2003.

My 2003 sportster speedometer is not reading


Hi Stevemahon, always check your instrument fuse before performing the next procedure, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap on Twin Cams and on top of the engine case between the rear cylinder and the starter motor for Sportsters. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs. Please visit the website below for more information and good luck.

Speedo, turn signals, brake lights, horn stopped working. All else is fine.


Gap your plugs to 38 thou. Check all your bulbs (one burned out will affect the rest) Take a look at all your fuses and make sure they are all ok. Otherwise you are probably looking at a wiring short which will require trouble shooting of the elctrical system. Buy your self a service manual for your bike, this will help you a lot.
