Those engine lights come on because something is causing an engine code, the code can only be read by the HD dealer with their digital tech program. They plug your bike into it and it displays the error code, they may be able to delete the code and it might never come back again or there might be a real problem.

Hi Anonymous, call, take a ride or trailer your bike over to your local dealers service/parts department, I'm sure they will be happy to take your Harley Davidson for a test ride if necessary/possible and offer professional advice and assistance concerning your issue. Good luck have a nice day.

Engine management light came on for a few miles only - then suddenly went out and has not reoccured, should i continue use and wait for reoccur and an error code to identify?? the bike is fjr1300 year...


I have several Yamaha bikes and sometimes when the bike gets too hot it will let you know in this fashion. Also maybe it has hit the time for servicing. Regardless I would keep riding until light stays on solid then troubleshot it.

Abs light flashing alternatively when putting ignition on


There is a simple way to fix it as I've discovered. Start your bike, if lights are flashing ride for a mile or two applying the rear brake a few times. Stop the bike and place on centre stand. switch off motor then restart. Your flashing lights should have gone. Why the flashing happens is if you ride and use your rear brake rarely and then your bike sits for a day or two without use your rear brake assembly fully retracts, ie pads away from disc and ABS gizzmos inactive. The ABS sensor unit then reports extended non use pattern to the onboard 'brain' which activates the warning mode of flashing lights. This has worked for me several times over the last 5 years when its occured. Full ABS operations return. Tried it on a mates bike and it fixed same problem on his.
