Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FLSTF - FLSTFI Fat Boy
It has power, the lights come but doesnt start. engine doesnt turn over just makes that noise. it sounds like its coming from the starter
It sounds to me like your battery is bad. Take the battery to your local automotive parts house and ask them to load test it for you. What it sounds like is you have a cell shorting out in the battery. This would result in the voltage on the battery dropping below 12 volts when you attempt to start the bike. With the voltage that low, the solenoid "hold in coil" cannot hold in the solenoid plunger to engage the starter motor. The result is that "machine gun" noise you hear with the solenoid plunger going in and out rapidly.
