How are you checking your spark? On the newer computer controlled engines, there is a "compression sensor". If you take the plugs out and try to check for spark like we used to do, you won't get a spark. Put your plugs back in and then use a set of test plugs to check your spark.

If you're still not getting a spark, check for voltage at the primary side of the coil.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the info. I didn't realize that you could test the spark the old way."

05 Electra glide cuts out


Hi Anonymous, it's either fuel related or electrical, check for restricted or collapsed fuel line, fuel valve vacuum line cracked, carb jets clogged, fuel filer contaminated, fuel cap not venting. For electrical, battery and circuit breaker connections loose and or correded, sensor or ICM issues, spark plugs and or wires, ignition coil. Try the websites below for further assistance:

Hi Anonymous, 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.

Need ideas to successfully mount FLHTCUSE4 "stock" air cleaner cover to Screamin' Eagle Stage 1 filter.


If you have the screaming eagle cover to compare it to it is easier but if not you can cut back the "sides", sometimes leaving the front the original size.

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.

My 05 Harley electra glide wont start or light up


Hi Nicoleelizab, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.

Cam belt replacement schedule


Cam Chain, Have your dealer inspect it at 30k unless you hear that area being louder than normal sooner than that. You should upgrade to the new Hydraulic set up from Screaming Eagle if or when you do need service to your tensioners or chains. The New setup will upgrade you to '06 later Dyna '07 later FLH style cam tensioners. This or Gear Drive Cams (much more expensive) have longer lifespan and you get a beefy hp upgrade. *You MUST have this checked, think of this area like you would a cam belt on a car.*
