Ok, make sure your battery is installed and connected correctly. The connections should be clean and tight. Now, look at the end of your starter. You'll see a five sided plate with a tower like thing in the middle on the end of your starter. Just above it is a single wire that plugs onto the starter. Unplug this wire and insert a test light into the wire. Turn your ignition on and press the start button. If the light lights up, your starter is bad. If it doesn, you've got another problem.

If the light does not light up, you'll have to find the starter relay. Harley moves these things around all the time so you never know where to look for one from year to year. I'd start under the seat and then move to the side panels if necessary. The relay is a typical one inch cube made of plastic. When you find it, turn on the igntion and press the start button while holding the relay. It should click. If if doesn't, it's probably bad and even if it does, it's probably bad. I'd replace the part as it's not all that expensive.

If you suspect the starter, go back and remove the three screws that hold the five sided plate onto the starter. Behind the plate you see a plunger with a spring on it. NOW, MAKE SURE THE TRANSMISSION IS OUT OF GEAR. Using a large screwdriver, push the plunger into the starter as far as it will go. The starter should engage and turn the engine. If not, you may have to replace the large copper contacts in the solenoid.

I hope this helps you find and fix your problem

Ride Safe

2004 Deville won't start


You'll either need to get it towed to a shop, or buy a used shop manual to get the testing procedures.
When you turn the key switch to start, there is a dash integral module, a starter relay, and the PCM in the circuit before power gets to the starter motor.
The anti-theft system is supposed to keep the engine from being cranked and started. So you get nothing when you turn the key if the security system is active. No click.

The starter has a thermal safety switch on it which is suppose to stop the starter from cranking when the starter is overheated to prevent damage to the starter. This switch is not working properly therefor stopping the starter from working.You have to replace the starter to correc this problem.

Tap on the starter with a plastic hammer. If it starts working you probably need new brushes in the starter. If new solenoid is not clicking when you push the button, the button may be dirty or broken. push the button halfway in and the headlight turns off. Then , push the button the rest of the way in and it should engage the solenoid.

I'm not 100% sure what pulley your talking about but it sounds like you might be talking about the air conditioner pulley, if it's kicking in and out. Shut your heater/defrost off, clean all your battery connections, make sure battery is charged up, or get a boost, and try starting it again, and let me know what happens.

Reset change engine oil light


Information taken from: http://www.idavette.net/tech/oilreset.htm

[quote]
The "Change Oil" indicator is reset by using a sequence of Driver Information Center (DIC) key presses as follows:

1. Turn ignition "ON", but do not start engine. (ALDL pin "G" should NOT be grounded.)
2. Press the "ENG/MET" button and release, then, within 5 seconds, press it again.
3. Within 5 seconds of Step 2, press and hold the "GAUGES" button. While the button is held, the "Change Oil" indicator will flash.
4. Continue holding the "GAUGES" button until the "Change Oil" indicator stops flashing and goes out, indicating successful completion of the reset cycle. This should take about 10 seconds.
If it does not successfully reset, turn ignition "OFF" and repeat the procedure from Step 1.

Starting problem


so that seems fine. I did some research and I think it's either along the lines of the spark plug(or ignition area) or maybe water in the float bowls from fueling up(?). I tried it again today and this time there was no *click* sound. I also noticed that the -neutral- and -check engine oil- lights which normally light up quickly at start up take a few seconds before lighting up. Now I think it's more in the electrical section but not exactly sure which area. I'm going to take a look at the spark plug and maybe try to drain any water out but was wondering if anyone had any other ideas?When you press start, the churning sound you (typically) hear is from the starter motor forcibly turning the crankshaft. While the starter is physically turning the engine, the engine is also injecting the fuel/air mixture into the cylinders and firing the spark plugs. If the plugs successfully ignite the incoming fuel/air mixture, the engine will begin turning itself over. If you press the button and nothing happens, or you just hear a click, the starter motor is not cranking the engine. The click you heard was probably the starter solenoid attempting to engage the starter to the flywheel of the crankshaft. The problem is probably the starter. It may be a bad battery. Reading the open voltage with no load on the battery tells you nothing. Put the voltmeter across the battery terminals and read the voltage while holding the Start button. ,,,
