2008 electra glide battery draw, test light pulses, now bike wont crank over


The pulsing could be the alarm module. When bike is turned of, you will get small draw for a minute or so and then it should go very low, below a miliamp or so. This is the alarm module setting itself. Check for this. Is battery gone flat while checks were being made? Make sure ignition switch is on when disconnecting battery if alarm (Stock HD) is fitted. If not, alarm module gets confused and can cause problems. The corrct procedure for disconnecting a battery from an alarm fitted HS is - alarm off, ignition switch on, pull main fuse (Maxi Fuse), disconnect battery. To fit, ignition stitch off, connect battery then install main fuse.

Bike wont start lights work no clicking, no turn over checked fuses one 15 amp fuse blown bike started right up what gives?


Hi Namvetfxdwg, you have a hard/dead short that is floating, should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and connect it to the power side of the, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, start by tracking the out bound wire towards the ignition switch and beyond if necessary, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

I have a 2005 harley davidson fatboy and my problem is that when i try to start the bike it clicks really loud ?, the volts on my battery are 12.80, but when i put the bike on the 200 amp engine start it...


You cannot go by a volt meter reading to tell whether your battery is good or not. The battery will read 12 volts and still not have enough current to light a decent bulb on your bike. This is because the volt meter is designed not to load the battery down. You starter puts a tremendous load on the battery. I'd also avoid using the "boost" or "jump start" position on the battery charger. You can get a voltage spike from those things and take out some expensive electronics on your bike. Take the battery out of the bike and take it somewhere that can "load test" the battery.

Good Luck
Steve

Harley won't start.


A harley AGM battery are usaully good for three to five years the best thing to do is have the battery load tested.Now as far as your problem now depending on the batterys state of charge the solenoid will click or not.Because you store it alot you should keep a trickle charger on the battery

All is dead.


I'm always hestitant to offer suggestions on the newer Harleys, my experience is all on 1999 and earlier carb bikes. But try the standard stuff first. No horn or lights leads me to check my connections and fuses starting with the ground for the battery. Torque em up a little and see if it helps

Bike wont start


What is it doing exactly, any clicking, buzzing, any noise at all, or nothing, no sounds at all? Especially in the starter area.
