Question about 2003 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Hugger
Take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to load test the battery. Sometimes a battery will short out internally and do this. I have a diesel pickup that has done it twice and hit has two batteries. Everything seems fine until you hit the starter, then "bang" everything goes dead and in the truck, both batteries are fried.
On your bike, if it's a short somewhere, when you hit the start button, you should be able to hear and feel the main circuit breaker break. Then, a few seconds later, you should be able to hear it reset. If it is the breaker, you'll need a schematic to determine what is one each fused circuit. The reason you need to know that is because whatever is causing it is NOT on a fused circuit or it would blow a fuse instead of trip the main breaker.
If you don't have a schematic, I have one for a '99 model. It should be about the same. If you'll contact me off forum, I'll e-mail you a copy. This forum will not allow me to send a file over 150kb in size. If I reduce the size that much, when you blow the picture back up it's so distorted that you can't make it out. contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Remind me of what you need.
