Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FLSTF - FLSTFI Fat Boy

1 Answer

No electrical power

My 2005 Harley Electra Glide has no electrical power.
When the ignition is turned on there's no power to the instruments or lights. When switched to accessory mode there is weak power to the dash lights but they're dim. Battery checks good and is new.

Tachometer not working

Hi Anonymous, if you have a 2005 FLHT then there is no cable, the tachometer is electronic and is probably ok. The ECM may have gotten an unaceptable reading and is not letting the tach play with the other children. Go to the websites below for more info:

1993 electra glide classic - can a faulty brake light cause dash lights to fail

Hi Anonymous, I don't think so but anythings possible on Harley electrics. Start by checking your instrument fuse then I would get out my test light and start at the ignition switch and start tracking the light/ignition power wire to the dash lights for a worn or broken wire then check all the wiring harness connectors in that circuit for corroded, broken or loose pins and for a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck.

Harley fuse box..what tools i need. 2005 electra glide classic.

Hi Toliver93, 1992 and later Touring Models, fuel pump fuses and relays will be behind the right side panel, starter and ignition relays will be under the seat behind the battery, everything else will be behind the left side panel to access fuses pull back on the front two locking tabs and slide the cover up. Good luck and have nice day.

How to remove a ignition switch on a 2005 harley electra glide

You must have a special tool to maintain the alignment of the switch when you remove it. If not, you can't get it back on. I would suggest you take that to a shop.
