Hi Rob, you probably got your connections wrong, assuming your replacement switch has the same number of male spade tabs and in the same locations as the the old switch the following is the correct hookup: One o-clock tab red wire. Four o-clock tab blue wire. Five o-clock tab short red jumper wire that connects to the one o-clock tab. Seven o-clock tab short jumper red with gray stripe that connects to ten o-clock tab. Ten o-clock tab red wire gray stripe. Eleven o-clock tab red wire black stripe. If it still won't start check all your circuit breakers with test lite and if it still wont start you have a defective switch Good luck

Harley troubleshooting


It is most probably a faulty switch, I had the same problem on my 2000 fatboy, I removed the switch and touched the wires together to see if the starter turned over which it did so I replaced the switch and have had no more problems so far.

Can a ignition module burn out a new coil. 92 fatboy with single fire coil


Yes it can. This is a common occurrence if the ignition switch was left on. It first burns up the igniton unit and it shorts out allowing a current flow through the coil that burns it out as well.

Good Luck

I have a 2005 fatboy and i replaced the battery. when i hit the start button the starter relay clicks and nothing happens. all my lights work and the fuel pump kicks on like normal. it just wont start


Sound like starter is stuck. Try giving it a tap with a rubber mallet, while pressing start button. If this does not work, put bike in gear and push it forward a few feet, then try again to start it. If still nothing try using jumper cables on battery, then start. If no go you have a bad starter.

HD Fatboy Starting problems


It sounds like you have a short in your start button wires, this could be caused by having custom bars with internal wiring. The wires chafe, touch, and it bypass's the button altogether. I would check continuity at the connector on the 2 wires of your start button and see if it changes whether the switch is depressed or not. If you have continuity both ways, you have a short. You should not have continuity unless you depress the button. If all looks well, re-post.

THE IGNITON SWITCH WILL NOT START THE CAR IT CAN BE TURNED ONLY IN THE ON POSITION BUT WILL GO NO FARTHER. CURRENTLY HAVE TO START IT WITH A REMOTE STARTER. HAD REPLACED THE IGNITON SWITCH AND IT WORKED...


You have a lock cylinder problem, the plate that holds down the tumblers has broken or come off and this is causing the lock cylinder to jam and not be allowed to turn, you will need to take out the cylinder to repair.

Fob on 2004 fatboy


The FOB is a security device that will help protect your bike. If it is far enough away (i think 20 feet) your bike will not start, Without the FOB the fuel pump will not run and the lights will flash on and off. When you come back to the bike with the FOB the bike will run normaly. So do not leave it with the bike unless you want it gone when you come back.
