clean your battery terminals-lift the rear seat, the battery is under the passenger seat, disconnect the terminals (both), use a wire brush and get the cable lugs shiny on the inside, where they clamp onto the battery terminals. Then clean the battery posts, hoop up the positive cable first, then the negative cable-while you are there, look at the negative cable and make sure it other end is tight and not rusted where it connects to the body.

I need to remove battery from my dyna sport fxdx 2002 , the cover up is fixed with the bolt of cable battery ? it's so difficult to remove the bolt on cable someone can help me ?

On the older models this is how you remove the battery. I doubt Harley has changed much but if they did, this may help.

Remove the seat. Just behind the battery between it and the rear fender on the right side of the bike, there are two bolts. Loosen the bolts but don't take them out. Look inside the frame behind the battery and you'll see a "jack bolt". Turning the bolt counterclockwise will lower the battery tray allowing you to get the top cover and surrounding cover off. Then you can get to the battery connections easily.

I hope this helps.

Battery removal 2002 dyna super glide, after seat removed.

Just inside the frame from the battery, there's a "jackbolt" that raises and lowers the battery tray. Turning the bolt counterclockwise lowers the battery tray and vice versa. You must loosen two bolts on the right side of the frame just behind the battery box between the battery box and the rear fender. Once the battery is lowered, you'll be able to get the top cover off and disconnect the battery cables. Disconnect the negative first when taking the battery out. Connect the negative last when installing the battery.

Good Luck

I have a 2001 cavalier with a dim driver side headlight. Have changed the bulb, DRL relay and headlight switch. Removed the ground cable from the battery tray, cleaned ground cable and battery tray contact...

Give this a try------get a piece of wire and strip both ends, the black wire coming out of the plug on the head light, stick one end of the wire in there and the other end to a good ground or the negative battery terminal with the lights on, if the light gets brighter, there is a bad ground to that light. I hope this helps, cause you have just done about everything else.
