Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHR Road king
Maybe you ought to press the button. No seriously, if everything else on the bike is working correctly, you could have a bad starter relay. There may be more than two relays on the bike but one is a starter relay. When you press the start button, the relay should energize and send power to the starter solenoid. The relay is a cube about one inch in dimension. Usually located under the seat. You'd need a wiring diagram to test to see which wire power from the start button was coming from.
Usually most relays have a schematic drawn right on them. Look at the relay and find the "coil" connections. Using either a test light or a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) , test to see if you're getting power to the "coil" of the relay. Turn the ignition switch on, insert the probe of the test light or meter and press the start button. The test light should light up or the meter should indicate battery voltage at this connection. If so, replace the relay as either the coil is bad or the contacts for the starter circuit are bad. If not voltage, your start switch may be bad.
