Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLTR Road Glide
Posted by Anonymous on
Start by disconnecting the starter solenoid small connector and bring 12 VDC directly to the small wire solenoid terminal. If the starter then operates you will know that there is no problem with the starter but with either the low or the medium current circuits. If the starter does not work when you do this you either have a bad starter or solenoid or a poor battery to starter cable or ground etc. If you then test for battery voltage at the wire end of the solenoid small wire end that you removed from the starter by using a voltmeter on it while you press the starter button with the ignition and run switches and you do not get a good 12 VDC reading you will know there is a problem with the low current starter circuit. If the low current circuit is good you should also hear the starter relay click when you press the starter button with the ignition and RUN switches ON. If there is no small click from the starter relay first check the starter fuse and if that is okay there should be 12 VDC to the 30 terminal on the starter relay with the ignition switch ON and the run stop switch in RUN . If there is not then you will have to find out why not. If there is power to the 30 terminal there should also be power to the 85 or 86 terminal (86 is usually the ground but it seems it is not always and sometimes it is the 85 that is the ground). When you press the starter switch if the low current circuit which is through 85 and 86 is good it should pull down the internal relay contact and allow power from the 30 terminal through to the 87 terminal which is the wire out to the starter solenoid small terminal. If the starter relay does not activate you will need to find out why not. If there is power to the 30 and either the 85 or 86 and the other ie the 86 or the 85 has good continuity to ground then the relay is bad and needs to be replaced. If there is no power to the 30 terminal and therefore also either the 85 or the 86 there is either a bad starter fuse or ignition switch or run stop switch or the starter button OR the wiring between them.
