Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic

1 Answer

I have an 01 electra glide classic. It started fine last week, but now nothing. When I push the button all I get is a loud clank, its comeing from the starter plunger but the engine will not turn over. I tried cleaning the contacts, nothing. I jumped it to boost the amps but still nothing. Any more ideas?

On the end of your starter on the right side of the bike, you'll see a plate that is roughly shaped like a pentagon, (five sided). It's held on by three small bolts. Remove the bolts and the plate. Inside, you'll see the solenoid plunger. Remove the plunger and look at the large copper contacts on either side of the solenoid. If they look burned and worn away where the round washer on the plunger contacts them, they need replacing. Usually, the contact towards the front of the bike wears worst. It should be smooth and level across the face.

Another thing is that the starter could be hung up. Put the bike in high gear with the engine off and "bump" the bike backwards and forwards a few times. This will turn the engine slightly and free up a hung jackshaft. Try this before diassembling the starter.

Good Luck

SINCE THERE HAS BEEN REPAIRS MADE; CHECK IF ALL ENGINE TO FRAME CONNECTIONS ARE TIGHT.

Two weeks is an eternity for a motorcycle battery. There is no short in your starter. Get yourself a 'battery maintainer', about $25.00 where I live. It is a very small trickle charger that will keep your battery up to snuff during those days when your lonely motorcycle waits patiently for you to reappear to once again, have fun together.

Your maintainer will come with a wire which you trim and attach permanently to your battery. When you return from an outing, simply plug the maintainer into the cord on your Electra Glide to assure a instant start in two weeks when you return.

No start 09 Ultra Classic Electra Glide


Sounds like your charging system is not charging the battery.

Put a volt meter on the battery, run the engine up to maybe 2,000 RPM. The voltage must be at least 13.8V, but not more than 14.5.

If that is all OK, your battery is worn out, and is not holding sufficient reserve. It would need to be replaced.

Horn wont work 1996 flhtcui electra glide classic


Its possible that just a wire came loose...but if thats not the case take off one of the wires and read for voltage while pushing the horn button..if you get voltage its a bad horn..if not you'll need to check the horn button it may be bad.
hope this helps...when my horn went bad i had voltage..i replaced the horn and it worked fine...also just insure that the wires are on solid and arent corroded or damage before you try all this other stuff first. Hope this helps .
