With the newer HD Security Systems using proximity FOBs where the key FOB needs to be close to the bike to start, this is now more important then ever. If the battery in your FOB dies and you have not set your Harley Alram Override PIN Code, you will not be starting your bike. It is just as important for those with oler Harley Davidsons with the push button alarm FOB. It you set your alarm and the battery dies before you return to your bike, again you will not be starting the bike.

If you haven't set the PIN over ride for your HD security alarm system...do it now! Here's how you do it...

(To view how to deactivate the security system with the manual PIN code, see below.
)



Setting or Changing Your Security System Alarm Override PIN

1. Select 5 digit code ( each digit being a 1 thru 9) and record it on the wallet card in the owners manual.

2. With an assigned FOB present, turn IGN key ON - OFF - ON - OFF - ON

3. Press Left turn signal switch 3 times.

4. Press Right turn signal switch one time and release.
*Turn signals will flash 3 times. Current PIN will appear in the odometer. The first digit will be flashing.

5. Enter first digit (a) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal (a) times.

6. Press right turn signal 1 time and release.
*The new digit (a) will replace the current in the odometer window.

7. Enter second digit (b) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal switch (b) times.

8. Press right turn signal 1 time and release.
*The new digit will replace the current in odometer window.

9. Enter the third digit (c) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal (c) times.

10. Press the right turn switch 1 time and release.
*The new digit (c) will replace the current in the odometer window.

11. Enter forth digit (d) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal switch (d) times.

12. Press the right turn switch 1 time and release.

13. Enter the fifth digit (e) of the new PIN by pressing left turn signal (e) times.
*The new digit (e) will replace the current in the odometer window.

14. Press the right turn switch 1 time and release.

15. Before the module rearms, turn ignition key to OFF.
* The odometer will return to mileage display.
**Turning the ignition to OFF stores the new pin in the module.

SOURCE: no spark

alrighty, I had the same issue with my bike. It took days of tracing the issue with a volt meter and I discovered an intermittent short that would "fry" my coi. This made the bike not start and when I replaced the coil, because I had removed the old coil and moved the wires the issue disappeared for a short time. It is known that SOMETIMES when the coil is mounted the two wiresthat go to the coil somhow get stretched. This over time cause an intermittent short and the coil is rendered "dead". The Fix: 1.get a replacement coil. 2.you need 6 inches of #18 wire 3. two aluminum wire splicers and two aluminum circle fittings for the coil posts. 4.take off the old coil. 5.cut back the wires that go to the coil about an inch. 6. using the aluminum splicers splice the wires making them about 3 inches longer. 7.splice in the aluminum circle fittings. 8.mount the new coil. 9. fire the bike up. Enjoy riding.

SOURCE: Do I need to remove the rear tire on my 2003

No. Remove the caliper mounting bolts, (put a rag under the brake cylinder at the pedal to catch any fluid pushed out by the next step), depress the pads until they will clear the disc, remove the caliper assembly and replace the pads.

SOURCE: how to hook up wiring for side mount license plate

In original configuration, the tag is illuminated by the taillight on the bike. I will assume that you are moving not only the tag but also the taillight and the brake light to the side mount position due to a modification in the rear fender.

Now, if you're moving the tag and the lights, simply move the wiring from your original lights and reroute it down the swingarm to the new light and tag bracket. the wires are green & red usually.

Now, if you're simply moving the tag bracket and leaving your taillight and brake light on the rear fender, you need to splice into the taillight wire at the connector that should be under the seat. Like I said earlier the tag is illuminated by the taillight so use this wire to power any tag light. Usually the green wire is the taillight wire but it's not difficult to determine which is which. Reroute the wire along the swingarm make sure you protect the wire by running it inside a wire sheath of some type. I do not like the usage of heat shrink for this job. Wire sheathing is available that will not shrink or become brittle.

I have a 2003 harley davidson flhtc with the 96 motor with no spark ? ive replaced the module and the coil and still no spark ? im stumped


Hi Normmore2, if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 8.7 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially "GROUND" cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm.

Engine turns over does not start there is no spark at plug 2003 hd fxstdi


Hi Ggmoor2, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.
