Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLSTN- FLSTNI Softail Deluxe
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.
