Hi, Scott and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Hi, I am getting Faulty codes P0036, P0056, P0141, P0161 in reference Bank 1 and Bank 2 for sensors 2 on 2003 CTS.I was told the sensors where changed but codes still appear?


If the sensors were replaced an DTC'S come back has to be a wiring problem or PCM ,
The ECM detects that the HO2S heater low control circuit voltage is between 2.6-4.6 volts when the heater is commanded OFF, indicating an open HO2S heater circuit.
Is the fuse open?
All four codes refer to the heating element circuit ! there is a relay in the under hood fuse box that supplies B+ voltage to the O2 sensor heating elements . I would change that or test the relay , videos on you tube on testing relays .
MAIN Relay
--
LO SPEED Relay, HI SPEED Relay, S/P FAN Relay, PRE O2 Fuse, IGN-1 Fuse, ECM Fuse, POST O2 Fuse, and INJ Fuse
Also check
POST O2 Fuse

HO2S Bank 1 Sensor 2 and HO2S Bank 2 Sensor 2
PRE O2 Fuse
10 A
Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Bank 1 Sensor 1 and HO2S Bank 2 Sensor 1

2003 harley 1200 sportster won't start when warm tuns over no spark just changed coil no difference starts right away when cold


Hi Curtis, the CKP sensor 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.

2003 harley sportster runs fine for about 20 min then dies and wont start for about an hour the runs fine again for 20 min then dies


Almost sound like it is starving for good gas flow. The first thing I would check it the vacuum hose connected to it. It might be cracked. If it is good, I would check the screen on the petcock itself and for anything inside the gas tank that could cause blockage of the fuel flow.

Why does my '03 Harley Sportster suddenly run bad.. like a terrible miss in the engine after 10 -12 miles..stop let it cool for 15 mins it will go again..then repeat the same thing..It runs good before...


This issue will often come from the CKP sensor located near the oil filter.Order one in your dealer and change it ,this is not a hard job,as this will take about ten or more minutes
