Question about 2005 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom

1 Answer

Just installed a new battery and I have no power,

Just installed a new battery on my 2004 Sport (old one measured only 8V) and I have no power, battery is fine. Volts were fine. What manuals or configs are available to check my install? Or what else should I check. She fired up fine in Feb and I had her on a charger (which didn't take), so what could be the problem? Pls help I am trying to sell her on Monday and she was just fine...perfect at 870 miles only...could someone have cut a wire?

1.As you changed the battery and the volts are fine the problem lies with the wires connecting the starting motor.there may some cut in the wire which prevents the power goin to the started motor.

2.please check the fuse for the starter motor which might have blownout.

3.there may be some junction box/relay through which the power goes to the starter motor. this might have burnt out or damaged so please chekc this also

4.check the terminals connecting the battery and the motor also,

if my answer was usefull to you please rate me

Trying to power a amp with 16 volts. possible?

Golf carts do not have a charging system. If you are going to use battery power only, why not just add (1) 12V car battery instead of (2) 8V??

MA Audio runs (ran) their bench tests @ 17V. All the power ratings advertized are at 17V.

The power supply for the hk4000D is unregulated. So the more voltage = more power.. 8V-16VDC.

  • RMS Power @ 14.4V
    • 1800W x 1 @ 4 Ohm
    • 3600W x 1 @ 2 Ohm
  • RMS Power @ 17.0V
    • 2000W @ 4 Ohm
    • 4000W @ 2 Ohm
    More input voltage means the amplifier will have to work less hard to make power.
    Don't expect the amplifier to work for very long however. the current drain on a class D amplifier is huge. There are no on-board fuses protecting the power supplies, so be sure to have at lease a 150A power line fuse.
    With 150A current draw - even with the amplifier at 1/2 gain - expect to get 10.6 minutes of listening time from your 16 volts before recharging - also note, the amplifier MUST see 8V to turn on, there is a built-in voltage sensor that will shut down the amplifier if voltage is too low.

    Wanting to install a mp6212 cd player in my tool box at work

    for proper operation, you will need 12V.
    Some vehicles wont start unless there aer 8V.
    Minimally 8VDC, but 12V recommended for proper internal amplifier operation. Purchase a used PC Power supply, and wire directly to the hard drive power pug. Inverters are also available.
    BTW Amps are a measure of AC Current, not DC. DC is measured in Volts.
    An Electrical appliance rated to work on AC will not work with DC, and vice versa.
    You will need an invertor of some type to change the signal and wavelength.

    Sorry to hear that you have no spark on you bike. Just a quick thought have you measured the battery voltage could your charger have damaged battery. I over charged my battery last year ( would only produce 8V) and had to get a new one along with an Optimax 3 charger so it would not happen again.,,

    No power coming through charger to camera.

    there are four little fuses on the mainboard but you wouldnt be able to repair them they would need to be fixed but there also could be a problem with the lens sometimes on that model that could cause the problem you have described sometimes when i repair a power cam problem it will act up again and the mainboard needs to be replaced its a good camera but a problem like that you should send it in if you still have a warranty or upgrade to a zr 830 or 850
