Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic
'99 Heritage. I think that was the last year of the Evolution engine in that model. If your plugs won't fire, check for voltage at the coil. If you don't have voltage, check for voltage at the "ignition" circuit breaker. Voltage for this circuit breaker comes straight from the switch. I think the circuit breakers are under the seat.
I have seen the coils go bad. Using an ohm meter, test the resistance of the primary of the coil. Remove the wires from the two small connections of the coil. Put the meter in "R x 1" scale and connect one lead from the meter to one post and the other lead from the meter to the other post. You should read about 3-5 ohms. Any more than that, the coil is bad.
If you do have voltage, it could be your sensor in the timing cover. There is a way to test it but you've got to have a special meter or your readings may not be correct.
If per chance your bike is a Twin Cam equipped bike, the engine has a compression sensor and the plugs will not fire if you take them out of the heads. Leave the plugs in the heads and test for spark using another set of plugs.
