Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Harley FLHTC. When I start the bike, the check engine light comes on, then goes out. This is normal. But very shortly after, it comes on for a couple seconds then goes out again. I have been told, to do a self diagnosis by using the odometer reset button. I've done this and codes 1-10 read clear, however, after 1-10 it reads CAL 03. What is this code, and should I be concerned? I've tried to clear it to see if it is an old code or new, but it doesn't clear. Is it normal? I've only had this bike for a couple months, and am not quite sure what to expect, and haven't had a chance to buy a manual. Thanks.

Hi Duprat_desig, no worries mate it's just the system or speedometer recalibrating itself and it's too bad you can't find the very first and best tool you ever bought for your Harley Davidson. Despair not, for a mere $6.50 you may be able to download another one from the website below and good luck.

SOURCE: 2000 FLHRI turns over but won't start

I found this info for you.  Have you tried the built in diagnostic in your speedometer? You can access them by: 

1) While you ignition is off hold the reset button 
2) Turn the key to the on position. 

Now from each reset button push the speedometer will test the following: 

d01 Speed sensor power output shorted low 
d02 Speed sensor power output shorted high or open 
d03 Not Used 
d04 Not Used 
d05 Speed sensor return shorted high 
d06 Speed sensor return shorted low 
d07 Not Used 
d08 Speedometer power over voltage 
d09 Speed output shorted high 
d10 Speed output shorted low or open 

The last number CAL14 is the calibration number. 
To reset all codes while in diagnostic mode, hold the reset button in for 5 seconds. 

Each test will read dXXSEt if there is a problem, or dXXCLr if there is not. (XX being the number of the list above) The 

From what I can tell it will test if your speed sensor, speedometer, or wiring is the problem. 

Hope it helps. Cheers
regards robotek

SOURCE: Engine Check Light on

I disconnected the battery, pulled the maxi fuse and 15amp ecm fuse. I waited a while and put the fuses back in and connected the battery and it was cleared.

SOURCE: Need the torque specs on clutch for a 85 FLHTC

The torque specs are the same as with any Evolution engine. The compensator sprocket 150-165 foot pounds.
Clutch hub nut (left handed threads) 60-80 foot pounds.

Use Loctite 271 on threads. Two lines in nut on Compensator and one line in clutch hub nut.

Had this same problem with my wife's 2004 XL1200C. Took it to the dealer and they discovered the batt cable was just a little loose. They tightened it and we've had no problems with that since...that was 2 yrs ago.

The engine light comes on after start up then about 3 sec. goes off and the bike runs good and doesn't come back until start up, any ideas?

Hi Robert, when the ignition switch is turned on, it is normal for the engine light to come on for 3-4 seconds while the engine management system runs a series of self diagnostics. If it comes on again after your bike starts please visit the website below to retrieve any generated codes, if you still have issues with the engine light contact me at Good luck and have nice day.

Engine light goes out after starting and idling. When riding speedometer is eradic and engine light comes on. Bike running fine

I would remove the speed sensor on the transmission and clean it..Just wipe it of. It's probably loaded with metal shavings. If cleaning doesn't work then you'll probably have to replace it. I own a 2000 FLHTC and I have to remove and clean mine at least 2 times a year. As for the engine light being on. The engine light should shut off within 5 to 8 seconds of the bike being started. You need to run the diagnostics through your speedometer. If you don't know how then you need to buy a service manual for the bike so you can do the diags and look up the codes.

Have a 2000 electric glide classic, no spark at the plugs after washing bike

The bike threw a code. My guess is a misfire code. I would check to make sure you didn't get water in the kill switch at the right handlebar control. Water in the run/off switch could short out the switch and cause the problem you are having.

Check engine light comes on at 40 mph after i slow down goes off,

First, read the code on the dash. Check to see if it is saying front or rear engine not firing. Usually it is just a loose spark plug wire and it is sending the code to the computer. You can look up how to read the codes on the dash of your bike. Any Harley dealer can tell you how to read it by using the switch and and how to clear any codes. Hope this helps. TOM
