If u havn't checked the battery with an ohm meter, do so. If the meter reads 12.50 or higher start looking at your starter. The solinoid would click and a bad starter would nothing. You could try tapping on the starter with a small hammer while pressing the start button. If it starts or at least turns over, u need a starter.

The battery might just be done or warn out, if you get lights when you turn the key on, and can honk the horn and everything, then it should click, if you are able to honk the horn and lights etc. and they aren't real weak, when you hit the starter it should tick, if your lights are bright and horn is loud and brake light responds quickly, then I'd ask a Harley dealer about it.

Ok, this is what I needed to know. There is one other thing that will cause this, the starter relay. On the earlier bikes the relay used to be on the backside of the oil tank. I'm not sure on the newer models. It is a simple plastic relay that looks like a cube about 1 inch in all dimensions. It has a plug on it and is held by one screw somewhere. I'd take the seat off and look under there or where the fuses are. Maybe under that triangle plate on the left side of the bike.
I wish I could be of more help but I don't get to work on the newer models. I'm an independant mechanic and I usually only get to work on the stuff that the Harley shop won't work on. If you own a bike made before 1984, Harley dealers will not work on them. That's what I do. I work on Panheads, Shovelheads, Ironhead Sportys, and even Hummers and the Italian Harleys. The guys that buy the new ones still take them to the dealers. I don't work on Twin Cams powered Big Twins either. But, they are basically the same and I try to do what I can to help people. Most of the time it works out but electrical problems are tough because that's one thing that has changed with the use of security systems now. I still use the old style security system. A big chain and a 357 magnum. (BG) Good Luck and let me know if still have problems. I'll try again.

I can't figure out whether your problem is with the bike or the security system. I have no experience with security systems and don't have a clue. I'd take the battery out of the bike and take it somewhere to have it "load tested". Just because a battery shows 12 volts with a meter doesn't mean it's any good. Put a load on it (like the starter does) and you may find that it's a piece of junk. If it won't start then, I'd suspect the security system has it locked out. Sorry I can't help with that but I'm an old school biker and I don't mess with security systems.
