On the earlier Fat Boys, the negative battery cable went from the negative side of the battery down to the rear bolt that holds the starter on. Without the proper tools, it can be a real bear to get to. Shine a flashlight on the backside of the starter from the right side of the bike. The cable should connect to that large bolt to the rear of the starter.

Good Luck
Steve

I need to change the starter in my 2001 dodge neon


The starter is located under the car where the transmission and engine meet toward the front of the neon. The starter actually bolts up with face toward the transmission. You must get the car up on ramps or on a hoist to see the starter. This is just a general method; it is very hard to give words to describe some of the steps without pictures. Removal: Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Raise vehicle on hoist. Remove starter bolts. Remove starter assembly. Disengage latch and remove solenoid connector from starter assembly. Remove battery positive connector from starter assembly. It is not necessary to remove the alternator output lead from the connector. Installation: Clean corrosion/dirt from the cable and wire terminals before installing wiring to the solenoid. Attach battery positive connector to starter. Ensure alternator output connector is snapped into the battery positive connector. Tighten the captive nut to 10 Nm (90 in. lbs.) . CAUTION: It is critical that the alternator output terminal be connected to the battery positive terminal of the starter solenoid, for proper operation of the charging and cranking systems. Install solenoid connector to starter. Ensure that latch is fully engaged. Position the starter face into transmission housing. Start bottom mounting bolt and thread in until bolt is snug. Attach ground cable to upper starter mounting bolt. Ensure the proper starter alignment before tightening the starter mounting bolts to 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) torque. Lower vehicle and connect negative battery cable.
