Check to see if battery is getting charged,if not have the regulator checked , also fuel goes bad if left for any length of time so use fresh fuel..

2005 FLHTCUI key switch replacement. Mitchell's Harley Davidson wrecked my bike. Last thing they did before I took it back was break the key switch.

I can't swear to the accuracy of these instructions as I don't mess with the later Twin Cam bikes. I work on the older Shoveheads, Panheads, and Ironhead Sportsters that the dealers won't work on. But, a friend sent this to me. Maybe it works. Good Luck.

Here's the procedure to remove the IGNITION /LIGHT KEY SWITCH AND FORK LOCK for a 2005 FLHT/C/U or FLTR (Domestic): Tools needed for removing ignition switch A T27 Torx, a small flat blade screwdriver, 7/8 wrench.

1. Remove the outer fairing and windshield

2. To remove the ignition switch, insert the ignition switch key and turn to the UNLOCK position. Leaving the key installed, rotate the knob to ACCESS. Depressing the release button at bottom (left side) with a small screwdriver, push key down and turn an additional 60 degrees in a counter-clockwise direction. Lift and remove knob.

3. Using a 7/8 wrench on flats, loosen switch nut and remove from threaded post of ignition switch housing. Remove collar and spacer.

4. Using a T27 TORX drive head, remove the two screws (with flat washers) that secure fairing cap to left and right sides of fairing.

5. Remove the switch position plate by pulling tabs from slots in faring cap. If necessary, raise the fairing cap slightly to facilitate removal.

6. With the forks turned fully to the left, disconnect the Fairing cap switch connector (105) 12-place Multilock (black), from behind right side of fairing cap. Depress the button on the plus side of the connector to pull apart the pin and socket halves.

7. Remove the fairing cap from the motorcycle.

8. Locate the ignition switch connector (33), 4-place Packard, at bottom of radio. Slide connector off anchor and separate pin and socket halves.
9. Remove the socket screws (with flat washers) and lift the switch housing from the upper fork bracket bore. Route the ignition switch connector to rear of inner fairing and remove switch housing from the vehicle.

Honda motorcycle fuel pump not working

check your key it has a chip in side it and it may be faulty try your spear and i know it sounds silly but just make sure your kill switch is set to run check the hiss fuse under the seat also swap your fuel pump relay with the fan one the fuel pump relay has brown wires going to it and the fan has black and blue if you have an alarm on it it will be worth checking that make sure that the fuel pump is pluged in under the tank take a look at the hiss light does it go out wen the bike is switched on if it stays on you have a HISS problem any problems let me know and i will do my best to help

Does it have a key Fob? If it does it has security on it and you have to have the key fob with the bike to start it. Otherwise the flashers will blink

Battery light on and firing on three cylinders

ah the old 5G2 nice bike.

if sat around for a year the battery will be shot, so it will not take a charge or hold it, that may be why the warning light.

after a year idle the carb jets will gunge up,

might you have no spark because the battery is so flat?

a year laid up... why.? did it have a fault then? carb diaphragms don't like being laid up, nor carb slides, one may be stuck in the old petrol residue.

think I'd be tempted to try a new battery, and if not charging, the regulator probably packed up, beware though, a shot regulator can feed ac through to the battery rather than DC, and it will bust your new battery. loads of people fall for that one.
