Question about 2005 Harley Davidson XL 883L Sportster

2 Answers

Electrical issue on 2005 Sportster 883

I was running the bike at a moment I hit the turn signal and instead of the turn signal it light the security system light. After that if I let it go to idle the engine kind of died, so I went home, and now it wont start. The battery is fine, the horn honks, the headlight's on, but the starter won't respond nor the signal lights or the security system. Any idea would be appreciated. Thanx

Georgie

Chec fuses-test them even tho they may look good-inspec starter relay-think there was a current overload -look over wireing for burns etc

No Turn Signal front Back. no running lights back. Every thing else fine Horn brake tail lights


Hi Scott, is your speedometer functioning normally? The reason I ask is because the two are connected for proper function. Check the connection to your Turn Signal Module located behind the left side panel, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets, if everything looks ok, replace the turn signal module.

Hi, Andrew maybe a Dyna so for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

2003 883 custom sportster has no rear running lights, but when I hit the turn signals, they flash. Also, the tail light quit working. I can mess with the bulb and get it going, but when I hit the brake,...


HI THE PROBLEM WITH YOUR REAR LIGHTS IS THAT YOU HAVE A BROKEN NEGATIVE WIRE FOR THE REAR LIGHT CLUSTER TO PROVE THIS, SIMPLY RUN A LENGTH OF CABLE FROM THE METAL CASING OF THE LIGHT CLUSTER AND GO DIRECT TO THE BATTERY NEGATIVE IF ALL THE LIGHTS THEN WORK THAT PROVES ALL THE FEED SIDE .MOST MOTOR BIKES HAVE BULLET CONNECTIONS YOU NEED TO TRACE THE WIRING FROM THE BACK OF BIKE TO THE FRONT UNDER THE SEAT TO THE FUSES IF YOU CAN,T FIND ANYTHING LOOSE OR BROKEN THEN I SUGGEST YOU MAKE A NEW NEGATIVE RETURN TO BATTERY NEGATIVE A PERMANANT ONE THIS SHOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM. GOOD LUCK{ FROM AN AUTO ELECTRICIAN}

Wiring problems on 2000 Harley 883 Sportster Motorcycle. Bike was dropped busting right rear turn signal assembly. I replaced that turn signal, but it does not work. Wiring seems totally wierd as what...


If you have two wires that go to the turn signal and they don't work one way. You could try them switched around.
This is for a turn signal that is NOT also a running light. (Yellow Lens to Rear)
Use a test light and turn on the turn signal test both wires with the test light clipped to the ground or chassis of the bike. The wire that causes the light to blink will be the positive or hot side. That wire should attach to the bottom of the bulb.
The other wire is the Ground or common and that should attach to the side of the bulb holder.

Need to know what fuse runs the turnsignal flasher in a 883 1997 sportster


The 1997 Sporty did not use a turn signal flasher unit. It uses a turn signal control module instead. This module controls all turn signals and four way flasher. It also performs the "cancelling" function once the time limit has run out on the flashing process. It's a "black box" about 1 1/2 inch wide by 3 inches long by about a 1/2 inch thick. It gets it's power from the Lights fuse 10 amps. If you contact me directly, I can scan you a wiring diagram and e-mail it to you. wd4ity@bellsouth.net
