If you are talking about whenever you turn the ignition switch on, the starter starts turning without you pushing the button, let's try this. The first thing to do is look at the end of the starter up near the bottom of the oil tank. You'll see a pentagon shaped (5-sided) plate and a green wire that plugs into a socket. Unplug this wire and then turn the ignition switch on.

If the starter STILL TURNS, the solenoid is stuck. Disconnect the battery. Right where you unplugged the wire, there is a pentagon shaped (5-sided) looking plate with three screws holding it on. Take the three screws out and remove the plate. Behind the plate, there will be a plunger. This plunger is what activates the starter motor. Make sure it moves in and out freely. There is a large spring on the other end that is supposed to push the plunger back towards the plate after the engine starts.

If the starter does NOT turn when you unplugged the wire, check the wire for voltage. If you have voltage there, the switch on the handle bar is probably stuck or bad. When you push the switch on the handlebar, this puts power on the green wire at the solenoid. The solenoid then pulls in and activates the starter motor.

Good Luck!!

How Do I remove the Tank Mounted Ignition Switch on my 2011 FLSTC?


IIRC, it's in the speedometer housing, right? There's one nut that holds it on from the rear, and I think it's tabbed in the front, or you will see how it hooks up when you lift it. Then it should be fairly simple to get at from behind. Let me know if I'm mixed on this, I can't recall exactly how the 2011 is, but it should be close to the older ones.

Put in new battery on my 06 softail standard it ran ok for a day now when I try to fire it up it won't start. It will turn over ok but will not fire.


I would check power to the coil and see if it is there for starters, if not then backtrack to see where you are loosing it.If you have power here, then it is secondary ignition problem (wires/plugs)
Another possibility is the contacts in the ignition switch being bad or burnt.
I hope this helps.

02 vw euro, 60k miles, intermitent no power to ignition switch. This symptom has only occured 6 or 8 times. Turn key...lights come on, no noise, no click, no crank, nothing....first occured. 2 months...


Sounds like it may be related to the 'neutral safety switch'. When you turn the key to start the engine, current goes from the ignition switch through the neutral safety switch to the starter relay, then on to the starter. Some cars have a shift linkage adjustment to make sure the trans is fully into park; mal-adjustment could cause what you describe. Anyway, start diagnosis at neutral switch and proceed to starter relay. Don't forget to check starter power feed wiring for loose/corroded connections. I've seen many cars exhibit this condition after being driven in heavy rain, etc., and in most cases, the battery wire on the starter, or the ignition trigger connection had become corroded enough that contact was lost, sometimes intermittently. It is important when checking these to actually disconnect these wires and look for corrosion, etc. especially the spade terminal for the trigger wire(be sure to disconnect battery before using tools on the starter battery wire)

Need to bypass ignition switch


further diagnosis showed that the ingnition switch was fine it turned out to be a faulty 02 sensor that was making the engine run extremely rich, ruining the spark plugs.
