Hi Eric_prior, you could have a faulty sending unit or guage, there could be a problem with your wiring. On models with the fuel gauge posing as a left hand fuel cap the gauge is a press fit do not try to unscrew it, simply ample force lift up in a rocking motion to remove gauge. Disconnect wires to the gauge and with a set of positive and negative jumpers from the battery connect the positive jumper and flash the negative, gauge should peg full, if not replace gauge. With a test light check for power to the sending unit, then remove the sending unit and manually operate the float arm slowly with the correct wiring hooked up to the fuel gauge and sending unit and the ignition on, the gauge should respond accordingly if not replace the float arm assembly.

SOURCE: i have a 2006 street glide fuel injected engine

If you have the spark plugs out of the engine, you will not see a spark on them when you crank the engine over. The engine is equipped with a compression sensor. No compression, no spark. Try installing another set of spark plugs and the rotate the engine over with a set in the wires.

Not getting any fuel is a tough one. Since I don't know much about the fuel injected, computer controlled models, the first thing I could tell you to do is to check to see if your fuel pump is working. With your ear press to the fuel tank, turn the switch on after it's been sitting a while. You should be able to hear the fuel pump run for just a few seconds. I don't know what to tell you to listen for though. Some pumps make a whirring type sound others a clicking type sound. If you know someone else that owns a fuel injected bike, try it on their bike and see if you can hear anything. That's the best I can do. Good Luck!

SOURCE: All the back lights will

If it's brand new, I'd take it back to the dealer and let them fix it under warranty. It sounds like the rear fender subharness is not connected or shorted somehow. A subharness is a wiring harness loom that connects to the main harness and feeds and "outlying" area of the bike like the fenders or handlebars.

Good Luck
Steve

SOURCE: My 06 street glide doesn't seem to be charging

Voltage regulator is going/gone bad would be my first guess. Other possibilities include loose or corroded connection(s), sulfated battery, or failing stator (not likely).

Since electronic parts usually can't be returned, it might be worth it just to have a shop check it and give you an estimate. Even if you have to pay a diagnostic fee, if it's something as simple as a regulator, you can do the repair yourself and save some bucks.

Fuel gauge is pegged to empty on 09 street glide


Don't know if it's the same routine, but here's the troubleshooting for a 2009 Road King:

Disconnect harness from fuel gauge
Turn ignition switch to IGN. Check for voltage at terminal 1 of fuel gauge connector.

If no voltage, repair the break.

If voltage present, disconnect harness connector from speedometer.
Check for continuity between terminal 9 of speedometer connector and terminal 2 of fuel gauge connector.

If no continuity, repair the break

If there is continuity, check resistance to ground on yellow/white wire in speedometer connector.

If less then 10 Ohms, go to item #1
If more then 10 Ohms, go to item #2

item #1:
Disconnect the fuel pump/level sending connector from the sender.
Check for continuity between terminal "A" of the connector and ground.

If continuity is present, locate and repair short to ground.
If continuity is not present, replace the fuel level sender.


item #2:
Greater then 10 Ohms resistance:
Reconnect fuel gauge connector to the gauge.
Turn ignition switch to IGN.
Check for voltage on terminal "9" of the speedometer connector.

If voltage is present, replace the speedometer.
If voltage is not present, replace the fuel gauge.


Hope this helps!

06 FLHX I Street Glide Fuel Gauge issue.\r\nI guess I've been one of the lucky guys whose fuel gauge worked really well & quite accurate since I bought the bike in 06. Now it has been reading...


Contact me directly and I'll send you some information on the principle of operation and troubleshooting the gauge. It's out of an older manual but the principle is the same and I think the readings are the same. The float is on the sending unit and usually if the float goes bad, it sinks and the gauge should read empty all the time. But, since the original did the same thing, it shouldn't be that the arm got bent either. wd4ity@bellsouth.net Make sure you remind me of what you need.
