Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLSTFI Fat Boy
I turned the key on and power came on as usual but when I hit the start button everything went dead. absolutely no power to anything. The battery is good but there is no power. I checked the fuses, all good.
This happened a couple of times the last few weeks but I could always get it going and it would run fine. The last time it just spuddered the no power at all.
Help me please
It sounds like you've either got an internal short in the battery, a bad connection at the battery or along the main power circuit, or the main circuit breaker or fuse is blown.
First, take the battery out of the bike and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them if they can load test the battery for you. Just because a volt meter says a battery is good does mean that it is. A volt meter does not put a load on the battery.
If it is good, reinstall the battery. Using you volt meter, test for voltage on the backside of your ignition swith with the switch off. If you find voltage on one wire, turn the switch on and see if you have voltage on the others. If so, your problem could be most anywhere and you'll need a schematic to find it.
If you have no voltage at the switch, go back to the fuse box. There should be either a 30 amp circuit breaker or fuse somewhere under the plate. Test for voltage on both sides of whatever device you find.
