Question about Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
Have you checked to see if the battery is charged?
If it's sufficiently charged, is the fuse(s) running from there all intact and working? (check with a meter, sometimes they don't "look" like they're bad..)
If you have just a little charge, but not enough you'd hear the starter at least trying to engage, even if it can't turn it over.
If you don't have radio, lights, nothing, then I'd be looking at the battery and the fuses closely. You may want to actually check the book on what fuses you should find, because some of them are not obvious, or all in the same place, like in a car. I've found them tucked away behind panels or behind the battery and the only reason I found them was I knew it was there and kept looking until I did.
If you leave your scooter hooked up in the cold weather but don't start it, or don't hook a battery-tender to it, then it can suffer for it and have reduced capacity over time. I used to ride mine most of the year so I started it regularly, even in the winter (Kentucky), but I have had friends who lose batteries because they just store them, cables hooked or not, and leave them for months at a time.
Heat and sitting idle on a shelf or in the bike can take their toll on the battery. If you actually show a charge on the battery on a meter it still may not have the "power" to turn the bike over. In that case I'd use a "load meter" which puts a load on the battery while it measures that performance and I can see if it'll hold up or not. But again, in this case you're not getting much coming on that you can see or hear, so I'd still look at the battery and the fuses.
Many auto parts stores will load check that battery for you for free if you bring it in to them.
