Just leaving it on a plain trickle charger could overcharge and damage the battery but it sounds more like you cannot disarm the bike. Have you changed the fob battery. Need a minimum of 2.9 volts. Panasonic or other make 2032 battery

SOURCE: cranks but wont turn over

Did you drain the gas out before you stored it.

If its carb model, then the carbs probablt need taken off and cleaned.

If it fuel injected, the screens are probably plugged up....dump the gas and try fresh gas

2010 ultra limited bike will not turn on, replaced battery. Charged new battery . Trickle charger flashes. Any ideas?


if the bike will not even show power check the main fuse . it"s under the left side cover. if it shows power at key on, then i wonder if you have security. if you do the most common issue is the battery in the fobs. They should be replaced every year.

Bmw 530i which is better choice maintain or take battery off??


Hello. Definitely use a trickle charger to keep your battery charged throughout the winter.
And in no particular order consider the following:
1. Oil and filter change
2. Full fuel tank - actually necessary.
3. Car up on jack stands
4. Car washed and waxed, perhaps covered
5. Intake and exhaust covered with strong mesh screen to prevent rodent infestation (optional, depending on where the car will be stored; mandatory if stored outside)
6. Clean interior and remove anything that could decay (and stink!)
7. install trickle charger to keep car's battery and electronix fully powered
8. Deflate tires to 15 lbs pressure
9. Roll all windows down 1/2 inch to allow for ventilation (optional if storing outside and/or covering car)

Monthly: Start engine and allow to fast idle (1000-2000 rpm) for several minutes. Engage AC to circulate refrigerant oil and keep seals fresh

Won't start


Neither. You have a dead battery. Replace it, and when you store it for the winter get a smart trickle charger and keep your new battery charged over the winter.

Wont start


Your battery is junk. Replace it.
Lead/acid batteries lose about 1% of their charge per day, so in 90 days of non-charging they are basically discharged. This is a bad thing. When winter comes, put a smart trickle charger on it, or at least once a month put a non-smart trickle charger on it for a couple hours or an afternoon so you keep it charged up.
I love/hate batteries.

Dead battery


Steve when you store a vehicle it is best to use a trickle charger to maintain the battery.

, I believe your problem can be solved by replacing the charging fuse next to the battery. It is not with the other fuses. If you pull the battery out it should be on the left with a plastic cover thing over it. Follow the power line and it will be along that.

Battery and cold storage of car for several months


a good battery will hold a charge through the winter if disconected from the vehicle adn left fully charged.
you may want to look into a battery monitoring charger, it is a trickle charger that is designed for long term use, it monitors battery volts and turns on when needed.

also put carpet squares or cardboard under the tires if you are parking on concreet. this will help prevent dry rot and flat spots
