Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLSTN- FLSTNI Softail Deluxe

1 Answer

I have a 2007 softail deluxe. I started the bike up yesterday, drove 5 miles then stopped and turned the engine off. The bike would not start, and all I heard was the starter relay switching. I just installed a new battery, and it is still doing the same thing, it does not even attempt to turn over. The only sound is the starter relay clicking. What else could it be? Thanks, John

Dog gone, sure is a lot of this lately. Seems every other question is this same problem. LOL

Ok, look at the end of your starter from the right side of the bike. You should see a five sided plate held on with three screws unless it has some kind of chrome cover on it. Just above this cover, there is a single wire connected to the starter. Unplug this wire and connect it to a test light or volt meter. Turn on the switch and press the start button. If the light lights up or your meter shows battery voltage, the problem is in your starter. If the light does not light up or the meter shows no voltage, replace the starter relay.

If the light does show voltage, remove the three screws that hold the five sided end plate onto the solenoid. There's a plunger and spring behind the plate. Take these parts out. Look into the solenoid and examine the large copper contacts in the solenoid. If they're burned badly, you can replace them. A kit is available for the starter solenoid that includes new contacts and a new plunger.

Good Luck
Steve

2007 Harley Davidson FLSTN Softail Deluxe turns over but won't start


Hi, Bestwaytrans and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.

14. Compression below 75 PSI.
15. A stuck-bent-burnt valve.
16. Improper valve clearance (too tight)

Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
18. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
19. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
20. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections are loose or connected to the wrong cylinders.
21. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
22. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
23. Faulty fuel pump.
24. Faulty pump relay or fuse.
25. Faulty ignition system relay.
26. Faulty or corroded run/stop switch.
27. Tilt sensor needs a reset.

I just bought a new battery for my 2005 Softail Deluxe; I road yesterday (10/20 miles) as I was finishinng the run, the bike shut off; could this mean the battery was not fully charged? Will a trickle...


Good idea put it on a trickle charge, however, the battery had enough charge init to start the bike initially, and the bike should have charged the battery after 10-20 miles, worth checking the charge rate to the battery from the rectifier,

The bike dies when coming to a stop. then it starts right back up. i think the idle need to be turned up?


If it's got a carburetor on the engine, you'll see a flat top on the carb. Look just to the right of this top and you'll see a screw. This is the throttle stop screw. Turning it clockwise increase the engine's idle speed, counterclockwise decreases it. You may have to take the air filter cover off to see the screw.

If your bike fuel injected, you must take your bike to a shop as the idle speed is controlled by the computer.

Good Luck

5 miles is not enough to recharge battery. Have battery completely recharged or take it to major auto parts store where they can test battery,
What caused battery to go "flat"? Did you leave dome light on?

Cranks as though battery is dying


That sounds like your alternator might need to be replaced.
