You could have poor, dirty, corroded battery and.or starter cables, you could have a similar conditioned ground for the starter. Positive and negative voltage drop tests would prove or disprove this. You could have a misaligned jack shaft assembly. You could have a defective starter. More likely you may also have a burned large solenoid contactor in the end cap of the solenoid.

SOURCE: 2002 Dyna wide glide. Will not IDLE

not running for a year! You have a varnish buildup in the low end circuit of the carb. You will need to remove the carb and do a full teardown of the carb to properly rectify this problem. SOMETIMES we are able to free up the passages by putting SEA FOAM cleaner in the tank , fill her up with fresh fuel and ride through the tank and it will clear up. SEA FOAM can be purchased at an auto parts store and is sometimes very effective. 1/4 cup to full tank fuel.

2001 dyna wide glide won't start,even with charged battery

Minimum troubleshooting:

Battery might still be bad, even though it's charged. A bad battery cell will fool you every time.

Remove battery and take it to any auto parts shop. Always disconnect negative (ground) cable first. When reconnecting, connect positive (red) cable first, then negative. Battery clamp bolts should be torqued to 60 inch-lbs only. If you don't have an inch-lb torque wrench, buy one. Battery should test at 12.5 VDC. The load check should show 270 CCA. If the battery fails, replace it with a Harley battery only. Bargain brand will only give you grief.

If it's not the battery, then you need to take the bike to a shop that knows what they're doing with electrical - most of these guys are barely qualified to change a light bulb. If you have electrical troubleshooting experience and a voltmeter, get the shop manual for your bike. It has a very straightforward discussion on how to use voltage drops to diagnose starting system and other electrical problems. Don't throw parts at the problem.

If someone has recently pulled the clutch, then it's very possible that the starter jackshaft retention bolt has been over-tightened. Book value for torque is wrong. It should be no more than 15 in-lbs, otherwise the jackshaft can bind.

Where is the fuse located for the horn on a harley davidson 2005 wide glide

Harley has been moving the fuse panel around since 2000. On the older Wide Glides, it was behind the "electical box" cover on the left side of the bike. That's the cover just to the rear of the coil cover. But, you might want to take the seat off and look there as well.

Good Luck
