How do I clear the fault codes on a 2012 Harley road glide.

The IM (instrument module) is capable of displaying DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes).
Speedometer Self Diagnostics: The speedometer is capable of displaying and clearing
speedometer, tachometer, TSM/TSSM and ICM/ECM Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC).
1- Turn Ignition switch to OFF & Run/Stop switch is to Run.
2- Push odometer reset button in & hold.
3- Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release odometer reset button. Background lighting
sould illuminate, speedometer needle should sweep its full range
and indicator lamps (battery, security, low fuel, check engine and cruise) should
illuminate. The word ?€?diag?€ should then appear.
4 - Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPt" with
the first P flashing.
5 - Each letter represents an area of the diagnostics module. The module that is flashing
is the one you are going to check. To move from one letter (module)
to the next, you push the odometer reset button one time. (from P to S to SP to t and back
to P, etc.)
P = ECM/ICM (Electronic Control Module (EFI) / (Ignition Control Module, 'Carbureted')
S = TSM/TSSM (Turn Signal/ Turn Signal Security Module)
SP = speedometer
T = tachometer
6 - To get the DTC within an area of diagnostics, push and hold the odometer reset button
in for 5 seconds and release. If there are any DTC?€™s the code will be
displayed or the word ?€?none?€ will appear if there are no DTC?€™s. Push the odometer reset
button again to view additional codes if they exist.
7 - Record the codes.
8 - If DTC?€™s are not to be cleared, Press and release the odometer reset button. Part
number of module will be displayed.
NOTE: To determine if a code is current or historic, clear the displayed code by pushing in
and holding the odometer reset button ( longer than 5 seconds) until 'clear' comes up.
Release the odometer reset button. Turn OFF the ignition switch. Run your bike and shut it
down then recheck the DTC?€™s again by repeating steps 1 to 9.
If the code is current it will reappear.
9 ?€" Press and release the odometer reset button to continue to the next module.
10 ?€" Turn Ignition switch to OFF.

I have a homelite 3316c when it starts up it goes full throtle it doesnt idle right is there a idle screw

There's a low speed screw and a high speed screw. There is also a tickover/idle screw. Its possible this is just screwed in too far. The high and low screws may have tamper proof covers on for emissions regs. Remove the top cover and you should see the screws on the side of the carb. H&L are side by side, idle is on the linkage to throttle trigger.

My tb516ec edger starts fine and ideol fine when the throtle is race it cuts out why does it stop runing when it speed up

Carb adjustment. Start with 1 full turn out on both low and high side. If it falls on it's face, then turn the low side out and additional 1/4 turn.

Hi i have a xlh 1200 sportster 1989 /1990 its fitted with a edlebrock carb quick silver 2 ,right throtle working ok ie you pull back let go it all snaps back same when bike is on tick over but when im out...

If the throttle is "snapping" closed like it should but the RPM's are not coming down, it sounds like you might have a vacuum leak somewhere. I've seen the advertisements for this system but I have no experience working on it. Evidently, this carburetor has two throats on it. Use a feeler gauge and check the gap at the bottom or top of one side of the unit and then check the other side and see how close they are. I would assume that even though there are two throats, the throttle plates are controlled by one shaft and that shaft is controlled by the throttle and idle cables. If the two throttle plates are seperately adjustable, then they may not be adjsuted correctly. Go to Edelbrock's website and see if they've got a technical assistance phone number or whatever. Send them an e-mail. They'll know more about it than I would.

Good Luck

Fuel Problem

If you have 2 carbs that work on another unit but not this one then that narrows down the fuel problem to either an intake/ vacuum leak or bad fuel in the tank.
The compression sounds a tad high which could indicate valve timing ( exhaust opening late or not long enough)
On the ignition side you could have a bad CDI , weak pulser coil or sheared flywheel key.
I believe I would lean toward suspecting the ignition. I had a Honda that gave me fits acting like a lean issue. I was in that carb 25 times if I was in it once. Same thing, idled fine but died on acceleration. It was the CDI. Put a spark tester inline with your spark plug and see if the unit dies due to lack of spark.

Chain saw will idle, but not run at full throtle

First, check the air filter and clean it well. Then make sure the spark plug is clean and gapped properly.

Then prime, start it up, and allow it to idle, even using the trigger to make it fast idle if you can. Using a small thin screwdiver, turn the high speed idle screw on the carb in small increments to the right, kepping the speed up on the trhrottle.

The idea is to screw it out until it sputters, then screw it a half turn back in. If it doesn't smooth out when turning it to the right, try going to the left.

Afterwards you may find it doesn't run at low throttle well. If not, try the same thing starting to turn left until it smooths out. If it doesn't, screw to the right. Again, the idea is to go until it sounds rough, then back off a half turn.

You should be able to adjust it to the point where you can open the throttle all the way with smooth sure throttle increase.

When chain saw is starte it goes to full throttle.

You understand there is a fast idle start position? If your saw is new it is triggered when the choke is pulled and remians in this position (even when choke pushed in) until the throttle is advanced once. Read your warm start instructions, it says pull clutch, push clutch, start. This is why we should buy saws from a chainsaw seller/mechanic NOT Home Depot!!!
I made the mistake ONCE of attempting to start mine without the fast idle engaged... my shoulder aches just thinking about it. GL

My john deere 1600 weed trimmer starts fine cold, then runs on high speed for several minutes then dies .Then will not start.I cleaned spark plug, checked proper oil/fuel mix, cleaned air filter,tightened...

Your fuel low fuel high adj on carb arent set right. one is for idle and low running while other is for high rev. Getting these set just right is very tricky and takes some time doing it to become good,Im starting you off on a crash course,Im not gauranteeing anything but here it goes. LOcate the two fuel adj. screws on carb,if they have plastic caps on top remove them with needle nose pliers so the screws themselves are exposed. Next,I want you to take a screw driver and turn both in all the way till they stop. Now take and turn each one out counter clockwise three full revolutions. Now start it to see if theres any improvement. (Note: further adj. may be required you may have to consult an expert to have it be done for you if you cant get it).
