Take the battery to an automotive parts store and have it load tested. I've seen this before many times. Don't rule out the battery as usually, that's the culprit. Seems they develop an intermittent short circuit inside. We had one bike that would do that about once a month. Checked the battery every time and never found it. Finally, the owner got tired of messing with it and told us to put a new battery in the bike. Problem never happened again. We figured that was the problem but whenever he brought it in, we couldn't prove it to him. We had to wait for him to get enough of fighting the problem.

Good Luck
Steve

I had a friend with a similar problem. Is the check engine light on? The click might be a faulty relay, but often these aren't loud enough to hear, so it might be something else. Next time it does this, remove the seat and see if you can't identify what piece is clicking. Or if you have a CEL you can try pulling the code to get something definitive.

2001 electra glide wont start starter relay makes a buzzing noise


Hi Anonymous, when you are trying to diagnois anything in the starter circuit you must start with a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or better and will pass a load test of 9 volts or better while cranking the engine over and the cable connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends. If you suspect a faulty starter relay just swap it with your horn, brake, or system/fuel pump relay, if the bike starts with no problems replace the bad relay. Good luck

I want to hook up a battery tender on my 2010 HD Electra Glide CVO and need to know how to remove the seat to access the battery box


Battery tenders eventually kill batteries, regardless of type. When your bike is idle for a week or longer, disconnect the negative terminal of the battery. Use your tender for maybe a week before putting unit back in service.

2002 Harley Davidson Electra Glide FLHTPI loses all electrical.


I had the same problem on my 2002 Electra Glide, started last year, 2012 and got worse this year, could not drive it more then 5 minutes and all electrical died for just a few seconds and would come back on, start bike again, sure enough it would die again, and again, and again.
What I did that fixed the problem was simple and only cost $7 Canaadian.
Take off the seat,
In front of the battery you will notice a relay, change it.problem fixed
Has been working without a problem all summer.
One thing to note, the relay has two posts, one is copper the other is aluminum, the positive with the two wires goes on the copper post.
If you can't figure out where the other wire goes you should not be riding a Harley. LOL
I switched out the old relay in the spring and to this day, Oct 4, it has never happened again.
Good luck, hope it works for you.

Harley had a bunch of bad speedos around your year. Check with a dealer or service rep to see if your bike still qualifies for a free replacement.
