The problem should be a main fuse or loose battery cable or terminals

Neutral and oil light not working on 2007 street glide

Oil light switch is a normally closed unit so first off test with an ohmmeter to see if there is an open which would not complete the circuit not allow the light to work.Then check to see if there is any current to the oil switch. If there is you could jumper the wire to ground which if the light then goes on indicates that the switch is bad. If no current to the switch you will have to trace back and find out where the open in the circuit is.

There may be no oil pressure due to lack of oil or a faulty oil pump. Check the oil level and add oil if low, then restart the engine and verify that the oil pressure light goes off and that the oil gauge indicates pressure. If the problem still exists you will need to check out the oil pump.

If the gauge shows oil pressure but the light does not go off it may be that the contacts in the pressure sending unit are not opening to break the circuit and shut off the light.
If the gauge does not show pressure it may be that the variable resistor in the sender is shorted to ground.

Locate the oil pressure sending unit on the front right side of the crankcase and verify that the electrical connector is properly connected to the sending unit. If the oil pressure gauge indicates pressure but the low oil pressure light remains on remove the electrical connector from the oil pressure sending unit and using a small jumper wire place one end on the indicator lamp terminal (the closest to the latch on the sending unit) and place the other end on the crankcase. The Ohmmeter must read less than one ohm. THEN start the engine and run at a fast idle. The ohmmeter must read infinity (OL). Replace the sending unit if the above meter readings are not obtained.

If the low oil pressure light functions correctly, but the pressure gauge does not, remove the electrical connector from the oil pressure sending unit, turn the ignition switch to IGNITION and the gauge must read zero. Ground the (BN/GN) wire terminal to the crankcase. The gauge must read full scale (60 PSI). Replace the sending unit if the above gauge readings are obtained but if the gauge readings are not obtained, replace the pressure gauge.

If there is no power to the gauge diagnose the cause could be broken or disconnected leads to the gauge or an open gauge winding. Test by switching the ignition switch to IGNITION and verify that 12VDC is present at "+ terminal on the gauge, then with the ignition switch turned to OFF check the ground terminal for continuity to ground. Replace the gauge if 12VDC is present and ground terminal is grounded. If 12VDC is not present, trace wiring until disconnected or broken wire is found and repair as necessary. If ground terminal is not grounded, repeat the procedure used to trace a for 12VDC lead.

The power lead fro the oil pressure and neutral switch is an orange wire on pin 6 of a 10 pin connector.

97 sportster the odometer light came on and nothing else, no oil light, neutral light, head light and it didn't do anything when I hit the starter button. But the horn worked fine normal loudness

Hi Dolphnl, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections check negative cable at both ends. (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to on.
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.
7. Security alarm not disarming
Good luck

Reset oil light

1 Hold the right button on the dash
2 Turn the ignition to on while holding the right button (You should see Service Oil or something like it)
3 Pull the left button and hold it while the right button is still pushed in
4 Now release the Right Button you will see ---
5 Release the Left button and without the clutch and in neutral switch the ignition to start and then turn it off.
I am not sure why but if I don't turn the ignition to the start position before I take the key out the service light goes to --- but then on the next start it come back ! ? !

Good luck!

Have 1997 heritage softail classic neutral light will not come on even when changing blubs, other lights seem to still work,oil. bright lights, turn signals. Don,t know whar else to do?

Your neutral indicator switch may be bad. Look on the chrome cover on top of the transmission and you'll see a wire that plugs onto the neutral switch. Disconnect this wire and ground it to the engine. Turn on the ignition switch and the indicator light should light up. If it does, replace the neutral switch. If it doesn't, you've got a wiring problem between there and the indicator lamp.

Good Luck

I have a 2002 sportie 1200. Is there an inline fuse or a fuse that could be blown? I have no neutral signal or oil pressure warning.

More than likely, the fuse that controls these two circuits also powers other circuits as well. You can look under the triangular plate on the left side of the bike to find the fuse panel.

To test the neutral light, disconnect the wire from the neutral switch behind the front belt pulley cover. You'll have to remove the rear master cylinder and brake pedal to get the cover off. Find the switch and disconnect the wire. Ground the wire directly to the engine. Turn the ignition switch on, if the light lights up, your switch is bad. If not, then there's a problem either with the wiring or the bulb in the indicator light is blown.

Take the wire off the oil pressure sending unit underneath the right side of the engine and do it the same way. If the light lights a bad sending unit, If the light does not light, it's a wiring problem or a blown indicator.

Good Luck

Camaro trouble

Place the shifter in neutral and try to start. If the problem goes away you have a park/neutral safty switch at fault. If the problem remains, I would consider replacing the ignition switch located on the lower steering column, not the key tumbler but the ignition switch. If you have a test light and know how to use one we can go through the test procedure.
Try the shifter test first and let me know.
