SOURCE: Cannot start my 2004 Sportster 1200 Custom due to security system

Check the battery, try jump starting it with another battery. If the battery voltage drops too low, i believe the alarm default is to disble the bike. (Greasy little criminals will cut battery cables to disarm the alarm) so although you may have enough power to operate the lights and alarm, it may be droppoing too low to start.

SOURCE: 2003 Wideglide check engine light (bad TSSM?)

I would not replace anthing yet! An intermittent light could mean that you simply have a wiring short! Get someone to help by watching your engine light, start your bike and do a wriggle test oun your wiring harness. You may find it to be no more than a simple wiring problem at the connector. You said there are no stored codes and the bike is running fine? No missing of sputtering? If not I would think the problen is no more than a possible temporary short in the wiring at the sensors

SOURCE: 2007 sporster turn signals flasher , bike wont start

He's right! 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, 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. Hope this helps.

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.

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.

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.

Hazards flash 6 times, bike wont start


Your anti theft system is activating when it flashes. You need to push the button on your key fob to disarm it. When you do the flashers should flash once or twice to signal that it is armed/disarmed. If it does not, try replacing your battery in your fob. or use the anti theft codes with your ignition switch and turn signal buttons. Check your users manual to do that.

My fuel pump is not running on my FXDB


Pull any error codes:

1- Turn Ignition switch to OFF & Run/Stop switch is to Run.
2- Push odometer reset button in & hold.
3- Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release odometer reset button.
Background lighting sould 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, 'Carbureted')
S = TSM/TSSM (Turn Signal/ Turn Signal Security Module)
SP = speedometer
T = tachometer
6 - To get the DTC within 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.


Once you have any error codes, repost them.

A few examples of what some codes are:

B1004
B1134
P0118
P0605

These do not necessarily, are the codes you'll get, but rather just an example of what the format the codes are displayed as.

My 2008 Harley Davidson 1200 custom won't start because the red lock light will not turn off. I just replaced the battery and this problem was not there before.


Hope this works for you.Instructions
    • 1

      Turn the key to the ignition position. Quickly press both turn signal indicators, until a light on the dash flashes.

    • 2

      Enter the first digit of your 5-digit security PIN by pressing in the left-turn switch the same number of times. So if your PIN is 76543, you should press the left-turn switch six times.

    • 3

      Press the right-turn switch once to store the number and move to the next digit in your PIN code. Press the left turn signal six times to continue, until you get to the end. At the end of the process, the alarm will disarm and the light on the dash will stop blinking. You can now start the bike as normal

1994 Chevrolet 2500 Trouble codes. I have a 94 Chevy 2500, it flashes error 3 across the dummy screen with the truck mileage. I hooked it up to a diagnostic code reader, I got the following codes: 12:...


DTC 12 -
When terminals "A" and "B" have been connected, the ignition switch turned to the "ON" position with the engine not operating, the MIL (Service Engine Soon) should flash DTC 12 three times consequently. This will be the following flash sequence: "flash, pause, flash-flash, pause, flash, pause, flash-flash, pause, flash, pause, flash-flash." DTC 12 indicates that the control module diagnostic system is operating properly. If DTC 12 is not indicated, and a fault is present within the diagnostic system itself, it should be addresses by consulting the appropriate diagnostic chart in this section.

The MIL (SES) will indicate a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) three times if a DTC is present, or it will simply continue to output DTC 12. If more than one DTC has been stored in the control module memory, the DTC(s) will be displayed from the lowest to the highest with each DTC being displayed three times.



DTC 32 - Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Error
EGR open command did not change the fuel mixture when the command was given during off idle operation. EGR opening should cause the mixture to be slightly richer because of the low oxygen content of the exhaust gas. EGR position signal is also monitored to verify EGR movement.

The EGR relies on a certain amount of exhaust back pressure to work properly. Now that you have lowered the back pressure, it can't work. Have you tried a new EGR valve? You may need a service manual with an EGR diagnostic chart to make sure, but I think the duals are the problem. Plus the O2 sensor is only looking at one side of engine instead of both.

Keep in midn this procedure to Clearing Diagnostic Trouble Codes:
To clear the DTC's from memory of the control module, either to determine if the malfunction will occur again or because the repair has been completed, the Tech 1 Scan Tool should be used to clear the DTC's. If a Tech 1 Scan Tool is not available the following must be perform'd when all repairs have been completed. This will allow all DTC's to be cleared:
1. Ignition "OFF."
2. Ground diagnostic terminal "A" to "B" of DLC (Data Link Connector).
3. Ignition "ON."
4. Fully apply brake pedal.
5.Fully apply accelerator pedal.
6. Check MIL (Service Engine Soon) for DTC 12.
7. Release brake pedal.
8. Release accelerator pedal.
9. Check MIL (Service Engine Soon) for DTC 12.
10. Turn ignition "OFF."
11. Remove Jumper from DLC connector.

NOTICE: To prevent control module damage, the key must be "OFF" when disconnecting or reconnecting module power.

Good luck.
