Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLHTC Electra Glide Classic
While riding my 2003 Ultra it shuts off very intermittantly . Loses battery voltage like the key was shut off or battery disconnect ! Wait 20 seconds and the circuit breaker closes again and it may be fine for 100 miles or it may do it again.
The voltage doesn't stay off long enough to clear radio memory but the speedo will stay at the speed the bike was traveling even tho it is stopped. Watching the volt meter it does not fluctuate. It does not appear to be heat related and has happened in cool , hot, rain, Etc !. Seems to happen more 2 up ?
I tightened everything I could find but have a feeling there is a crushed wire causing high resistance and opening the circuit breaker. But where ? The bike did have a recall on the breaker which was done and I replaced it again ( just because)
If anybody has had this complaint or knows the ancwer Thank You... I will keep digging and if I find it I will let you know !
How many lights are you running? try disconnecting the battery and hooking up a shunt with a volt meter or a current meter inline. then check the current with different accessories or everything running. If you have a big load and stereo amp you may need to upgrade the charging system and the Circuit Breaker or try a aftermarket CB.
It happened once to me, riding slow, new pavement, very hot day, spot lights and stereo amp on.
Have a new CB on order but, put on another 4000 miles without another problem????
