You have a dead short somewhere start going backwards from the fuse and look for a bare or chafed ,burnt wire

    Had the same problem. Pushed it home a few times. Spent a lot of time and money replacing parts to find out this. If you look at the blown fuses and they are not burned out in the middle where most fuses blow when you have a short to ground but they do not pass a continuity test with an OHM METER look to see if the element in not connect to one of the end caps on either side of the glass tube . If that is the case then someone put a fuse in with greasy fingers so now the fuse clips have grease on them. Grease is not a conductor it is an insulator. The connection between the fuse and the clip will heat up hotter and hotter until it melts the solder that holds the element to the end caps . Even if you put a new fuse in ( that I did ) the grease on the clip will cause a bad connection which draws more current that generates more heat that will melt the solder holding the element to the end caps. Clean clips & fuse - alcohol~carb cleaner , small wire brush, don't touch fuse caps with fingers( oil contamination) . Q'TIPS & pipe cleaners (to clean tobacco pipes) at tobacco shops and head shops work well. ...... The fuse clip and the wires to the fuse on my bike heated up till the solder melted inside the fuse ..should have figured that out sooner ... Bad,dirty electrical connections get hot(draw more current) Hope this helps you

I have a 99 road star custom all it does is click/ died going down hwy a couple times

Get your battery checked. If the battery passes, make sure it is fully charged and check the charging system (stator and regulator/rectifier).

Bike has shut down while ignition,lights or any indication of electrical power

Check the fuse box for blown fuses. There is probably a main fuse that turns off power to the entire bike. It is some times separate from the other fuses and is normally located on or near the starter solenoid.

Where is the stator located on a 2001 26, my bike died on me while riding, I was able to pop the clutch to get it started and got back home. Took the battery in and had it tested it was bad, bought a new...

Assuming you can get it started after charging the battery, put a volt Ohmmeter on the battery with the engine running around 3000 rpm. The reading should be around 14 volts. If it is, then the stator is fine. It is on the left side of the bike under the cover.
64d7948.gif There may be a loose / dirty connection somewhere on the bike. Remove the seat and gas tank to gain access to the wiring harness. Get a volt Ohmmeter as you may need to check continuity at some point. Start at the battery, then fuses and the wires connecting to the fuses. Inspect for burned wires, abraded wires, loose and/or dirty connections, bad connectors and loose wires. This means the mass of wires inside the headlight must also be inspected. Check the handlebar kill switch and the side stand kill switch as well. Go all the way to the ignition system. Check the key switch. Put it on "run" and check for power through the switch as you jiggle the wires. Find the bad connection and you should be able to fix it.

Accessory fuse keeps blowing, headlight not working

I know this sounds aomewhat general, however please give the following some thought:
Check your relays, if you have an aftermarket horn you may have a different relay. To troubleshoot unplug your headlight, unplug your horn, etc.. Turn your ignition switch to accessory only. See if the fuse pops. If it does unplug whatever added accessories you may have still have plugged in. Once you can get the fuse to stop popping, turn the ignition switch to on. Then one at a time plug you accessory, headlight, etc. back in. When you find what pops the fuse, unplug that item, start plugging in the other items, if the fuse has not popped you have potentially isolated the circuit causing the issue. Now check the wiring for loose connections, bad ground, and CHECK the relay if that item has one. Hope this helps,

you might have a charging system problem without the bike charging system it is only running on the battery power, and once the battery is too low to fire the ignition it will die, check your fuses and power cables to the battery, selenoid and starter, then check the regulator/rectifier, could also be your stator or rotor, only a few possabilities but you will find it.

95 LeSabre custom dies and comes back on

Electrical problems of an intermittent nature are the most difficult to solve. It sounds as if something is draining the battery. The charging system needs to be checked with diagnostic equipment. Something like a parasitic drain may be causing the battery to run down and the alternator cannot keep up with the demand. When something like power windows are activated, they draw a higher amount of current to get started than they need to keep rolling, and this surge of energy may be robbing the injectors of the current they need to allow fuel delivery. I experienced a problem like this on a customers car, and we found that the trunk light was staying on when the lid was down. This was enough to keep the battery from becoming fully charged, and the alternator had to be replaced from being over-worked.
